No. 8 New York City

9 of 22

Just as this shoppers’ paradise has a dedicated district for almost any item you might want—from diamonds to guitars and lightbulbs—the Big Apple also has a district, it seems, for every kind of fascinating folk. There are the mermaids in Coney Island, the hipsters in Williamsburg, and of course, the street performers, Naked Cowboys, and not-quite-right cartoon characters wandering Times Square. It’s no surprise that New York also ranked at the top of the survey for being diverse.
