Huh.... Yarraville. It's a nice neighbourhood and it's got a good vibe. But I don't know if I'd have thought to put it in the top 5 in the city, much less the world.

'Coolest' can sometimes be indicative of something hype-driven. And Top Ten/Top Forty lists can sometimes be cringeworthy. No, my faves did not make this list. But then again, its all subjective. One example, most tourists could not distinguish between Le Marais and Haut Marais 4e, so I question the article separating the two so arbitrarily.

This piece above is a 'Time Out' publication. Once at The Mosque of Paris, we met the writer for the upcoming Time Out Paris guidebook. He could not have been more smug and aloof.

I am done. The far cry.

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2875920...c5e8WuVoW09Psa It is very hard to find something under two hundred that has a registration # which means they are legal. I like this area.

Manhattan! Upper east side. Not because its posh or anything like in the movies.
The place is surrounded with small quaint cafe/ resto. I enjoy walking around the area.
Central park is kind of accessible too from there. Nice neighborhood ( price tag- not so much).

Lived there for about five years, Apapa, to be more specific.
I can find our old houses on Street View, now turned into fortresses, surrounded by wall topped with concertina wire.
Tinubu Square has not changed much, the rest of the city has become a giant s**t hole.

With exception of Verdun, Montreal, have not been not been to any place mentioned on the list.
