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.

place. Bustling metropolis brimming with night life and dreamy-eyed folk chasing both the promise that is America and a sea of yellow cabs. Unlimited opportunity but limited seating. Concrete spires surrounding halal food carts beside world-class museums. Pigeons. So many pigeons. Many with feathers.

Wow. That hurricane Sandy really messed this place up.

No. This is how it always looks.

Hey! How about those New York Knickerbockers!

The greatest city in the greatest state in the greatest country in the world. New York has everything that is good. New York city is home to refreshing diversity, great sports teams, great food, and great people. Fun and exciting, New York has variety. From enormous skyscrapers and bridges to mountains, wide rivers, and beuatiful beaches. If you had a choice, why whould you live anywhere else?

Also known as "Jew York City", "Noo Yawk City", and "Hymietown". A city where the rent is too damn high yet the inhabitants of the city stupidly pride themselves for living in a place that is an absolute shithole. They cheer for the Yankees like they don't know that they bought their own team and spent the most money so they're SUPPOSED to win. It doesn't even occur to them that being a bloated shithead alcoholic loudmouth cocksucker cheering for the Yankees (unless you have money on the game) is like going to a casino and cheering for the house, and being a complete douchebag about it. Compare your city to New York City and you'll quickly realize your city is in fact the suburbs. Nobody gives two shits about the rest of New York State, which is why this terrible hole of filth, crime and assholes is being defined. The only people who care about the city are its own citizens, but they think that everyone else should too. It's also a noted fact that whenever the end of the world takes place in a movie, it always happens in NYC, mostly because audiences world-wide enjoy watching New York get hit by a natural disaster.

New York is the shithole of the United States. Nazi Germany is better than New York.

A state where 98% of its area gets a bad rap from 2%. There's a helluva lot more to New York than the City.
I'm from Upstate New York.

New York is the best state in the United States. It has the number one city in the world (New York City), which is known to be the most exciting city, and the city that never sleeps. There's always something to do in New York. In NY, you have Long Island, which is one of the more expensive places to live. On Long Island there is Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau County and Suffolk County. You are right near the beach, and there are extremely nice places such as the Hamptons where a lot of famous people live. New York City has a lot of people, including a lot of famous people that live there. Hip-hop began in NYC, and many stars today were born in New York. You also have upstate New York, which looks like a totally different place. In Upstate New York, you have beautiful lakes and mountains, where it snows a lot in the winter and is warm in the summer. There are scenic places such as the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. New York is known to be one of the most expensive states to live in, and it is known to have the best education system in the United States. New York is home of the Yankees, Mets, Islanders, Rangers, Giants, & Jets. People that aren't from New York will be able to tell that someone is when they talk because of their New York accent. It is very distinct, but only people from NYC and Long Island have this accent, people from Upstate New York do not. People who live in New York, are very proud to be from New York..and they will let you know that it is superior to all the other states in the US!
