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.
Jack- "New York City is the greatest city on Earth!"

Jill- "It's a great city but it doesn't have any natural beauty like Los Angeles, San Francisco, or Seattle."

A STATE in the Northeastern US. Has much more going for it than NYC, which is still a great city. Also has very beautiful landsapes upstate and on long island. A state that about 99% of people judge by NYC, which takes up less than 1% of the state's land. Oh yeah, and yes, they do put NY on the mail, what kind of a stupid question is that?
There is WAY more to New York than just New York City.

The only reason I might refuse to move to Europe when I get a life.

But hey, the other big cities are pretty damn good, too!
NYC Roxors!

Many see New York as the only city in the world. This is not true. But there is no doubt that it is a fantastic city. I grew up in a suburb north of New York City called Westchester, and taking the train to the city is the coolest feeling, seeing the ugliness of Harlem, or the beauty of 42nd street. It's really fantastic. And it's the home of Broadway. Broadway kicks ass.
Avenue Q and Assassins are the best shows in New York right now.

1) the capital of the world
2) the only real city in the usa
3) home to 8 million diverse people (and another 14 million in the immediate suburbs)

Most cosmopolitan city in America. Best queer scene, most exciting nightlife, and friendliest people.
In other words: New York is da bomb
L.A. just bombs.

The best city in the country, and one of the only ones that isn't 99 % suburban shit (LA, Atlanta, Houston)
