New Wednesday Feature: Competing Cities


My favorite little coffee table book is called Paris vs. New York, described as “A friendly visual match between two cities told by a lover of Paris wandering through NewYork.

Details, clichés, contradictions.” Illustrated by the graphic artist Vahram Muratyan, it’s a hilarious, beautiful, and unique comparison of these two cities. In that vein, every Wednesday I’ll publish a city comparison of my own – just little observations on defining characteristics in two cities.
First up. . .

Sunday Afternoons in … London vs. Frankfurt

High Tea* vs. *Kaffee und Kuchen**

*Black tea with cream, scones, petit fours and cucumber sandwiches, perhaps a gin and tonic.

**Strong coffee with milk, massive pieces of cake covered in whipped cream, perhaps a prosecco.
