New York City was my home for decades. Manhattan, to be exact. Even though I moved around several times, I generally stayed within a relatively small area. I lived on Fifth Avenue for almost forty years. Life was good. After New York I spent quite a while in downtown Chicago.

It was in the late 1990s that I left the US and emigrated to Malaysia. I wouldn't use the word "abroad", though, since I consider myself something of a world citizen. I think you can already tell that I'm a "big city" kind of guy, and Kuala Lumpur certainly suited me very nicely.

After Malaysia I did a short trip to Taiwan, a lovely country. Recently I've been residing here in the Middle East. I don't intend to make this place my permanent home, though – in fact, I already have plans to move into a neighboring country in a few years' time. After that, who knows?

Who am I? Where do I live? Where am I moving next?

You are

The world's tallest building

You were

The Flatiron Building, then the Woolworth Building, then the Chrysler Building, then the Empire State Building in NYC; then the Sears/Willis Tower in Chicago, then the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, then Taipei 101 in Taiwan.

You are currently living in

Dubai (The Burj Khalifa)

You might next be moving to

Saudi Arabia, as the Jeddah Tower promises to be the world's first 1km-tall building when completed.

    $\begingroup$ I knew I should have gone with just "Asia" :P $\endgroup$ – jafe Aug 9 '18 at 13:29

    $\begingroup$ This was better though -- definitely more accurate and you'd have been living in "Asia" for 20 years roughly...this way you were able to add some detail to the puzzle and still I don't think the correct answer is extremely obvious $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 9 '18 at 13:31
