look up any word, like fleek:
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."

The greatest city and state in the world. There's just nothing like it! I grew up Upstate (Copiague) and love NY!
I think NY is the greatest place ever.

Best city in the world because of the New York Yankees and the kick ass hot dogs.

the absoulute king of all the states, the best place to be, the best place to live, the best place to do anything. if cities and states were baseball, new york would be the yankees, meaning it is the BEST.

A state loacated in the north eastern part of the United States of America.
The last time I checked New York was the name of a state and not a city

most of you are just judging the city from movies and stuff because you've never been there. it's not that dirty, pretty safe, and a lot better than living in wherever you live with the other white trash, because stuff actually happens here. also, terrorism could and probably will happen in other parts of the country anyway

New York would seem so much better if people who live here, like me, wouldn't be so cocky as to say "we're the greatest city in the world!" bullshnit!!

And why are New Yorkers so scared that L.A. may be a better place to live? So many of the definitions (or whatever these musings are) mentioned something that sounded fearful of L.A.'s ascendancy...makes you wonder.
New York is a great city, but there are also other great cities in the U.S. and all over the world.
