New York Tops San Francisco as the No. 1 Technologic City in the World

The Big Apple, tops in tech? Somewhere, Steve Jobs is raising an eyebrow.

According to Savills Tech City, which reports annually on such matters, that is indeed the trend. New York City now tops San Francisco as the No. 1 technology hub in the world. Savills, a global real estate brokerage firm, bases its results on factors such as costs of living and doing business, real estate prices, talent, and transport. Cited among the reasons for New York’s ascent were its deep talent pool and recent big tech expansions. Rounding out the top-five finishers were San Francisco, London, Amsterdam, and Boston. Los Angeles finished seventh.
