But that's precisely the thing I found with my experience of New York - that although we all grow up watching it on our tv screens and venture to the neon beast that is Times Square on our holidays, New York offers everybody their own little unique taste of it. It abides by no man and is constantly switching itself up so that you never experience the same city twice.

I urge you, when the time comes to decide whether London should continue as the great member and guiding light the UK needs, or leave to become a nation which discovers the hard way that man cannot live of the produce of allotments alone, vote Remain.

Unfortunately dating has a dark side and so does looking for somewhere to live, especially when you're a young woman on your own.

Why we Need to Revolutionise our Study of Cities

One of the key questions academics face with this agenda is whether there are limits we will have to heed with urbanisation. Or in other words, can the expansion of cities be a linear scaling driven by the number its inhabitants.

The United Kingdom is well positioned as a leader in many of these areas, in particular energy management systems, offshore wind and expertise to tackle air pollution. And, as the United Kingdom renews its own energy infrastructure, there are huge opportunities for collaboration.
