The last place on earth that i would step is Mumbai. Its a nightmare for all since the terrorist attack. Poor security and lack of concern on human lives. I just cant forgive the government of India for their irresponsible behaviour appealing, begging and pleading to US, Saudi and UN to punish Pakistan.The most sad part was how the jewish family was killed by the muslim terrorist. Its not something new to known muslim like killing but but hurting to see a hindu country enjoy's the killing and never take any serious action on the terrorist group. How long can India be a coward that's long people has no trust to even step into India.

This is pretty interesting. I was definitely surprised about Moscow. Even if I had enough money to live in any of these locations, I would still likely live someplace else. It is interesting though to see what people are willing to pay to live on the "right" street. Nice hub!

You must have researched a lot for collecting this info on expensive streets. I think even in India there are places that are more expensive than New York.

Try Grafton street in Dublin Ireland or Shrewsbury Road in South Dublin, they both appeared in newspapers as being the 2 most expensive addresses to have on earth! Its far too expensive to be Irish any more!

Although Ostozhenka, Moscow is in the 6th place, I like that for its Architecture, and well as the environment. It seems a peaceful location and I hope and think that one can enjoy the luxurious facilities of the palace and the nature. My second preference goes to Altamount Road, Mumbai. Tx u.

I went for Paris, but would love St.Moritz as the second home! LOL, dreaming now!

Jose Alves 6 years ago

I would probably choose Paris if I had enough money...I was very surprised with Mumbai and also very much surprised that Tokyo was absent from the list. Av.Defim Moreira in Rio is certainly one of the most expensive addresses in the world!

Expensive streets, expensive foods, expensive cost of living...I wouldn't be able to survive with these exuberant expenses if I don't earn a large income. Moreover, these are luxury commodities, so I don't have the intention to live so expensively. Life is subjected to limitations sometimes.

Lakshmi Mittal 4 years ago

Hey, i saw ur article and im Glad that u have entered my street in london as one the expensive in the world.

A Very Thanks.

I guess the poll is very india biased. And frankly Monaco coming second is rather due to the myth than reality, a tiny all-concrete place, where the coastline has been waisted. The concentration of show off rich men ran after by cheap fake blond wanabees and prostitutes is so high that it quickly becomes unbearable, shallow and uninteresting. Places like London Paris, New York,... are filled with riches, with a sparkle of class and elegance.

Monaco or St.Moritz ... Mumbai is winning because this poll is very indian so of course is top of the list but really Mumbai is a piece of shit and smells like crap .... 4 years ago
