A city with unparalleled strength, influence, and importance. It is a well-rounded, global, hip, trendy, of-the-moment, powerful, important, and cultured city. It is the premiere city of the United States and also the most important. No doubt about that.

It's a city full of arrogant delusional folks who think their city is superior to all others. It's the "center of the universe", the "capital of the world", the "greatest city on earth". They seem to have such pride in their city. So why do they keep talking trash about Los Angeles? I don't know. All the defintions of "Los Angeles" were probably made by New Yorkers who haven't left their city in the past 5 years and still base their opinions on experiences in 2001. They should just admit that they feel threatened by Los Angeles because the gap between LA and NYC is always decreasing.

New Yorkers live in closets in which they paid half their salary on just to live in the provincial nation of Manhattan. Yes, those closets are filled with cheap furniture, people who can't decorate because they don't have the time (being too busy "making it to the top"), and probably never utilize their kitchens as they are always out at night enjoying the nightlife. Its subways are very cruddy. Aside from Manhattan, there is essentially NOTHING to love about New York City and really all of New York State.

A small town just outside of Newcastle. Is quite close to the seaside and is basically one big council estate.

A scene or location characterized by a multitude of unrelated activities and/or large groups of people.
You should have been at the party last night, man - eight kegs, 15 bottles of liquor, hundreds of people all over the place. It was New York.

The most overrated city in the world, massively overhyped by the American press and people in general. Former New Yorkers all rave about how great the city is, yet don't live or even visit the actual city anymore. Currently being run (poorly) by Michael Bloomberg.
If New York is the "Greatest City in the World," then North Korea must be the Greatest country in the world.

A state in the United States thats money is sucked away from upper NY by a certain city sticking off some island.
NYC raised the tolls at the thruway even though they don't even use them.

Sen. Hillary Clinton loves to use Upstate New York to gain money for herself and practice for when she's in the white house.

A festering cesspool of greed and corruption. (see Jew) A place so full of arseholes and wankers you would beleive yourself to be in some tacky American "Drama". Avoid as your would a Turbercular.
New York City (or any other major American city.

The second worst state in the U. S., after Illinois. (Unlike Illinois, New York didn't require a three-fifths majority of both houses of its state legislature to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment.) People upstate aren't that much nicer than people in New York City. The superiority complexes on roids are infuriating. Even 90% of upstate New Yorkers have a superiority complex. It wouldn't matter for whom New Yorkers vote, because the winner would govern poorly. I am not surprised that anyone would want to crash a plane into a building within New York City, and I wouldn't be surprised by a terrorist attack upstate either. I am not surprised that cars with a New York license plate get stopped in other states because of anti-New York sentiment. If I didn't live in New York, I would rather lose a limb than go back to New York.
"I'm glad I don't live in New York anymore." Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia
