2. It is windy

Wellington City Council even publishes a map showing Wind Zones so you can see the most windy areas

3. It is wet

Average rainfall is average annual rainfall is 1249 mm (according to Wikipedia at least!).  For comparison, Edinburgh has 704mm and Copenhagen 613 (also from Wikipedia).

6. The city has more coffee shops per head than New York City
