    How to use "any other"

    I am trying to find how to use "any other". My friend asked me which of the below sentences are correct, and why?

    New York city, which is one of the largest cities in the world, have more interesting places than any other cities.

    New York city, which is one of the largest cities in the world, have more interesting places than any other city.

    I also notice that sometimes we use "any other + pural noun", so I don't know in which situation we should use "any other + singular noun" and which situation we should use "any other + pural noun"

    Could you please help?

    because new york city is singular so you should use city and not cities
