      NYC winning Best Nightlife totally negates the legitimacy of this whole questionable poll.

      @John: I live in NYC and know there’s virtually no good nightlife now. I save going out for when I visit other cities. The “results” have got to be fake or a bunch of people, who haven’t really been anywhere, voting according to their imaginations.

      @Ryan: That horrid academic. Actually, I’d think it’s great if Tel Aviv won for real, but I just think this whole “poll” was hokey.

      @CBRad: You think the results are moot just because you have a personal distaste for NYC nightlife?

      @Evan Mulvihill: I can’t have a distaste for something that doesn’t exist. Anybody who voted that way just …is going by an old stereotype. It’s as ridiculous as voting for Best Dressed city. Every major city has both : “fashionable” people and people who are slobs or dress ridiculously.

      @CBRad: I don’t understand. A hundred gay bars doesn’t count as nightlife?

      @Evan Mulvihill: Bars? Only somewhat. Other cities have all that, but with actual dance places like the Roxy still there. Big venues. And more than one leather bar. The private parties everywhere from Coney Island to the Upper East Side can be great, and parties for some events can be cool, but every other place has that too. Let’s see what others have to say here…

      New York has some great fashion, but New Yorkers (and Americans) in general really don’t dress that great. Regarding London, what’s fashionable about brown sweaters? Tokyo is hands down the most fashionable city in the world. Unfortunately, I’m guessing most voters have never visited. I think Rome beats NYC too in the percentage of well-dressed citizens, if not in the diversity of style.

      The only fashionable people in NYC are over 70.

      @Interesting: What do not like the results? Of a free vote? I guess the people have spoken and proves Sarah Schulman was a idiot after all

      @Ari: Just because bunch of people got together to probably game some survey online does not a truth make. The reality is that I am just pointing out that Rio as far as excitement of gay life is probably better than Tel Aviv. Its not a knock on Tel Aviv. Its a “what city has the most for gays” statement. You can choose to get offended, or you can choose to realize Tel Aviv is an odd choice. It would be like saying Chicago.

      @T2:
      sounds like the west bank is for gays like you
      you know it’s not racist at all there(apparently the official no jews allowed policy of people who live in Judea(you know the place the gives jews their name isn’t racist at all, while Israel where 20% of the citizens are arab is the real racist country).

      On top of that you’ll enjoy the wonderful honor killings that you’ll receive if you attempt anything close to a pride parade in public.
