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."

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!
New York is the best state in the U.S.

1.) The largest city in the United States. Popular for tourism and boasts good food, low crime rates, and close proximity to other cities such as Philadelphia, Boston, and Washington, D.C.

2.) A state anyone who doesn't live there forgets that it exists. Residents of Upstate New York will have to clarify that they don't live in the city when they say "New York".

Person wearing "I Heart NY" shirt: I just went to New York, it's such a great city!


Person: Where are you from?
Upstate NY resident: New York.
Person: The city, right?
Upstate NY resident: No, I live upstate.
Person: Oh.

The second safest big city in the United States. Over 8M people with under 700 murders a year, and decreasing. The Capital of the World. The best sports teams, best pizza, best hot dogs. Strongest "Cosa Nostra" (mafia) families through out all the USA. The opposite of California, which is stuffed full of crime, murder, rape, surfers, and lazy-ass people who don't work a day in their lives. New York, the most famous city in the entire world, the best city in the world, the ONLY city in the world!
New York is statistically the second safest big city in the USA. It is also home to the best of everything, from sports, to museams, to buildings, to food, and everything else. Also the best subway system in the world.

The place to go for big tourist attractions, and a kick ass hockey team, if you're talking about the New York Islanders!
I go to New York for amazing pizza!

People keep calling me dumb for saying that there is. But seriously, go to wiki and check for yourself! I'm not dumb!

Go to Wikipedia and type this in after .org : /wiki/New_York,_Tyne_and_Wear
Me: ''There's a New York in England, too!''
Other person: ''How dumb can you be? There's no New York in England! Do you mean York? Stupid.''
Me: ''NO! Go check Wikipedia! I'm not dumb!
Other person after checking Wikipedia: ''Oh, I'm sorry, you were right!''

A lovely place. Very north European in outlook whilst embracing all cultures. Not the most *American* of North American cities but by far the best. Because of its geography it has evolved in a very classical manner, downtown being centered in southern Manhatten but starting to spill into Brooklyn and upwards into Harlem and the Bronx, with the suburbs on a distinctly 'second tier' of development; this contrasts sharply with the 'multi-hubbed' nature of Los Angeles with its multiple high rise centres making LA much more of a governmental concept than a unified civic community.
Everyone cityphile should go there atleast once.
