An otherwise decent state with one big pimple called New York City. NYC is filthy (yes, STILL) and smells like trash. All NYC will do is take your money until you're smart enough to move to Upstate (where, now that electing Democrats is growing up there, will still take your money) or somewhere else in the US. Upstate is beautiful--mountains, the Finger Lakes, Niagara Falls, etc. New York is an okay place to visit, but I'd never, ever want to live there for an instant. Everyone who says it's so awesome a.) Can't spell (seriously, have you read these posts? What the hell are those public schools DOING?!) and b.) Can't base their "best-ness" on anything except mild cultural achievements that will be forgotten in 100 years.
And btw, whoever said there was a city in Upstate akin to Houston obviously doesn't know anything about Houston, the fourth-largest city in the nation...whereas the next largest city in New York is Buffalo at number 69...below Anchorage, AK.
And on the whole, New York City is the loudest place I've ever been and it produces the loudest people I've ever met.
If you want to go to New York, you'd be much better off spending your time in a decent place like Rochester, or hiking in the State Park.
Me: This New York place isn't so bad as long as you stay Upstate. Snow? What the heck is this stuff? Why is every freeway a tollway? And why are the taxes so high to live here? State Income Tax?! What the crap?! God, I miss Texas.

In reference to the city, let's just say that you know you're from there if any of the following apply to you:
You say "the city" and expect everyone to know that this means Manhattan.more...
You have never been to the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building.
You can get into a four-hour argument about how to get from Columbus Circle to Battery Park at 3:30 on the Friday before a long weekend, but can�t find Wisconsin on a map.
Hookers and the homeless are invisible.
The subway makes sense.
You believe that being able to swear at people in their own language makes you multi-lingual.
You've considered stabbing someone just for saying "The Big Apple".
The most frequently used part of your car is the horn.
You call an 8' x 10' plot of patchy grass a yard.
You consider Westchester "upstate".
You think Central Park is "nature."
You see nothing odd about the speed of an auctioneer's speaking.
You're paying $1,200 for a studio the size of a walk-in closet and you think it's a "steal."
You've been to New Jersey twice and got hopelessly lost both times.
You pay more each month to park your car than most people in the U.S. pay in rent.
You haven't seen more than twelve stars in the night sky since you went away to camp as a kid.
You go to dinner at 9 and head out to the clubs when most Americans are heading to bed.
Your closet is filled with black clothes.
You haven't heard the sound of true absolute silence since the 80s, and when you did, it terrified you.
You pay $5 without blinking for a beer that cost the bar 28 cents.
Power that comes form diversity.... Pride that comes from making it to the top....
Nothing like the Big Apple.
The greatest Fucking city in the world.
New York kicks ass!!!!
Where my heart will always be no matter where I go.
New York = Home
I'm in a New York State of Mind - Billy Joel.

2. Also refers to NYC, or as most ignorant people think- Manhattan. (Oh, yeah, there's also The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island)
Yes, I do live in NYC, and no, I have never heard a gunshot or gotten dumped on by a piegon.
