City of Sails

One of my favorite cities in the world is Auckland. I love all of New Zealand: the people, their government, the terrain, the climate, their wines, just about everything. Apparently many others feel much the same as Auckland is ranked on different lists as being 3rd, 4th, and 9th of all cities in the world for quality of life. Other interesting Auckland statistics include: the population is about 1,400,000; 1 in 3 households own a boat, so it is sometimes called "City of Sails"; it is the 23rd richest city in the world; and the main three religions are Roman Catholic, Anglican, and Presbyterian.
