A new survey shows that the number one dream city in America is our very own New York City!

In a Cinch Home Services conducted a study, 1,067 Americans were surveyed to find out what their dream city in the United States is. NYC ended up being ranked number one out of ten cities. While making the decision in the survey they were asked about:

  • Culture
  • Entertainment options
  • Green spaces and outdoor activities
  • Job opportunities
  • Warmer climate
  • Dining options
  • Diversity
  • Family and friends
  • Public transportation
  • Cooler climate
  • Quality of education

This, according to the survey is what makes up a 'dream city.' People also responded with the sacrifices people have to make in order to live in their dream city. These sacrifices include:

  • Dipping into savings
  • Only going out once per week
  • Living off cheap food
  • Sacrificing vacation days for extra money
  • Working a second job

Of the people who took the survey, 44% of the survey takers actually moved to their dream city and 3 out of 4 respondents said it was worth making the sacrifices to live there. These are the top 10 dream U.S. cities according to the survey:

  1. New York City, NY
