|Lagos, Nigeria Second World's Least Livable City 2019 by Onlytru: 4:41am On Sep 04, 2019|
Helsinki, Amsterdam and Hamburg also made the top 20, while Berlin and Luxembourg came in at 21 and 23 respectively.
Honolulu was the top ranked US city at 22, with Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Seattle and Washington, DC in the top 40. Chicago was rated 41st.
London and New York ranked 48 and 58 respectively. Both were rated highly for culture but were brought down by their lower scores for infrastructure and stability, with a higher risk of crime and terrorism.
Paris' stability rating also took a tumble thanks to the "gilet jaunes" anti-government protests. It fell six places from last year's ranking to 26.
Singapore came in at number 40, and Dubai at 70. Hong Kong was ranked 38 -- the listings were compiled before the recent political upheaval. Cairo and New Delhi were downgraded due to environmental issues such as poor air quality and inadequate water provision.
Damascus, in Syria, was judged the world's least livable city, followed by Lagos, Nigeria, and Dhaka, Bangladesh. The Venezuelan capital Caracas was rated the tenth least livable city.
Karachi, Tripoli and Harare also featured in the bottom 10.

Getting the kind of open space we're seeing here, in Lagos, would be a herculean task.
With the exception of picture #3 of which would also be a rarity back home, we are not that patient except when plotting revenge.
