No, but if there's one thing I learned from the Wire, it's that NYC has a relatively low crime rate. Relatively

London is terrible. Can't get anywhere on foot (or otherwise) and absurdly expensive. Only good for actions sequences in Bond movies.

Don't forget the crap public transport, there's a reason the London Underground song was written.

Same could be said for a lot of cities. Hence why there's one of the best transport networks in the world. By that I mean where you can go and how connected it all is etc.

The transportation system is absurdly expensive too. You should come to Germany sometime if you think London has great transportation.

Said no one ever.

Even the Boston T was better than the London Underground

The UK just fails at trains in general

You don't get bus tickets from the driver in London

Put coins into some box next to the bus shelter
