New York City is a massive pile of garbage on America's east coast, and is thankfully downwind to the rest of America's citizens. It is the only city in the country that prides itself on being over-priced, filthy, and rude to visitors, yet out-of-towners still show up in droves.
Citizens of New York City are generally douchebags. They rarely take pride in anything they've accomplished in life, but rather where their mother happened to shit them out. People who no longer live in NYC will tell you how great it is (in barely understandable English) even though you didn't ask and couldn't care less.
As of 9/11/2001, apparently EVERYONE in New York City and the surrounding cities, or even people who had a layover there once, narrowly averted death by changing their travel plans that day. They usually tell this to everyone within earshot to score sympathy.
In summation, New York City is to be avoided at all costs. Furthermore, Hollywood should stop making lame-ass movies and TV shows there, because we're all fucking sick of it.
