That actually made me laugh.

Hearst's HQ, with Time Warner's HQ right behind it.


http://hisblog.ryanandheidi.com/2011...g-midtown.html

NBC's HQ.


http://www.skyscrapercenter.com/buil...ding_id=%20775

My favorite one. From left to right, the HQ of Merrill Lynch, 2 WFC, the HQ of American Express, and the HQ of Goldman Sachs, all across the street from 1 WTC which will be home to Conde Nest's new HQ.

There are 45 companies in the fortune 500 headquartered in NYC. However, companies in general is almost impossible to calculate. Hundreds, if not thousands of smaller businesses are headquartered here.

As for the list, here is a good one for the US, cities with over 5 fortune 500 companies in them.

Sorry I'm a bit late on this post, but I must say, you are very wrong. I live about half a mile from the actual headquarters in NYC and I always see the guys from corporate walking around. Citi will NEVER leave NYC. Why would any financial company leave the financial headquarters of the world?

Various business publications put out lists like that each year. Tokyo usually comes out in top spot. It's worth pointing out that some companies are located in towns just outside the city limits of a major city. IBM is a good case in point. It's headquartered in Armonk, New York. Armonk is a small hamlet just outside NYC so doesn't count as a New York based company.

These were the Top 15 for 2011. Rank, City, # of Fortune 500 companies.

01 Tokyo 47
02 Beijing 41
03 Paris 23
04 London 18
05 New York 18
06 Seoul 12
07 Osaka 8
08 Toronto 7
09 Houston 6
10 Moscow 6
11 Madrid 6
12 Zurich 6
13 Mumbai 6
14 Amsterdam 5
15 Shanghai 5
