Healthy comparing is lovely, however too much can be the thief of joy, all I'd say is if you have the time and money to visit many cities than do so, nothing like a bit of experience to give you some thoughts. London is slowly swaying my opinion for the positive.

Yep, but I said there are dog poops
Well, I will just leave it here, you're right, it's pointless to compare cities. Just wish there are less 'dirt hole', 'alpha', 'beats any chinese or arab' terms.

I like the plans for the Peninsular, i'm just a bit worried it's going to look a bit sterile.

Is there going to be a high street? Cinema's? school's? etc

There's already two cinemas at Greenwich Peninsula, one at the O2 and an Odeon just south of the project site. Here's a brief run-through of what's coming to the Peninsula project: http://www.royalgreenwich.gov.uk/new...nsula_approved

I used to work in a public library on a very challenging council estate in inner London and we often used to get some of the local children causing serious trouble, merely because they were bored and often the only way they would get any attention from adults was by being as difficult as possible. I can remember one day, a little girl who was always causing mayhem when she came in the library, started banging her fists on the window, making a terrible noise. I started to get and more angry each time she came anywhere in sight. My colleague, the children's librarian said, ignore her and she will get bored because she isn't going to get the response that she feels she needs. Well I did what she said, and as difficult as that was I can tell you, it worked! She was stricken and wandered away.
Sorry about the long preamble but I think this wise advice that I was given all those years ago could work here.
People are going to come here and say all sorts of things about the cities that THEY love, in comparison to London. Is there really anything wrong with that? Sometimes criticism isn't a bad thing. London is going through an astonishing period in its history. In many ways it is quite miraculous. The proof provided in this forum is enough in reply to any comment. Londoners can take pride in that fact. Nothing more need be said in reply to those who feel they have to come here and bang their fists on the window once in a while.

LOL, do you live in Paris Pew? I do, and as much as I'm fond of my capital city, Paris is very dirty in some areas. Everyday I'm sick and tired to see some dog droppings/plastic wrappings/papers and so forth on the pavements, it puts me off and makes me very angry to see how dumb some people are over here...

Thank Gog, Anne Hidalgo -Mayor of Paris- is to launch a cleaning program anytime soon to make Paris as clean as possible, and show a better "image" to the tourists.
