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.

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".
1.)

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

2.)

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!

There's a New York in England, too!

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!''

The guy I was "meant to be with." He has the greatest blue eyes in the world. His hair's the color of mine and he makes me crack up. He's really nice and so sweet. He has the Empire State Building, one of the tallest towers in the world. And he has hot spicy pizza. He's just amazing. He also has the Twin Towers. He's cool. He's really funny and crazy, but really sweet and nice. New York is the best state ever. <3
"Overall I just love New York... I love New York... I love it... With my whole heart... You know... I heart New York... 'N.Y.'... I heart N.Y.... so much..."
