New York has been rated the best US city for singles, bumping Atlanta out of the top spot.

The Big Apple also edged past Boston, Chicago, Seattle and Washington, DC, which rounded out the top five cities in the Forbes.com survey.

Atlanta fell to No 6, followed by San Francisco, Los Angeles, Milwaukee and Philadelphia. It was the first time New York had won the title in the annual poll that assessed 40 of the largest US urban areas for coolness, cost of living alone, culture, job growth, online dating, nightlife and ratio of singles to the entire population in the area.
