1) The greatest city in the world. Hell, the ONLY city in the world. The City contains 5 boroughs: Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, The Bronx, and Staten Island.
2) Upstate New York, a lackluster farm area in New York State outside of the city. Includes, but is not limitod to, Longisland, Rockman's, Dutchiss, Pakipsy Adderrhondax, and Buffolloe.
Thank God I live in the City!

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."

Very intellectually stimulating and culturally charged city, from it's EUROPEAN contributions. Whereas the Puerto Ricans add nothing, and everyone hates them. And the negroes worse.

A city as of late the Irish have claimed credit for building? Even though it was already built, when the Dutch had arrived. They just contributed to it's corrupt politics and greasing the squekey wheel.
Look at Ireland, do they build anything? They have have many good writers, because the Irish are good bullshitters, and that is it. But they did not build New York.

The epitome of a city. i.e lots of people crammed into a small space, all of whom are competing to kill, rob, maim, eat each other.yes, i have been there. and it made my asthma worse. How many people do you see wearing a " i love Asthma" t-shirt.
A good a reason as any to smash a jumbo jet into a tower.
"New York, New York. So good they hit it twice...with airplanes laden with aviation fuel"

"i once bought weed in washington square, i got ripped off"

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.

Just a large city on America's east coast. To the residents of New York, it is the center of the universe, the greatest city on earth, the only place people can become rich and "make it big" at, the city that has the absolute best Italian food in the world,period, the only place with "real" pizza, subs, and bagels. To new York residents, everywhere else in the world is not as good or exciting. To the rest of the world, new York is just a city mainly full of assholes who think that they are better than everyone else because Billy Joel named a song after them. When new York residents go on vacation, they are not very fun to be around because they will constantly badger you about how much better things are in new York.
After finishing meal a nice Italian restaurant not in new york while on vacation-
Guy not from new York(paying for the meal)- Wow, this was great. How'd you like your meal?
Guy from new york- Eh, ya know, back in New York they got this mad awesome deli that makes a way better meatball sub. But yeah, I guess this place is halfway decent, I mean, to be wasting your money at.
Guy not from new york- Oh yeah well your welcome for taking you here, you prick. Why don't you just go back to new york and tell all your new York friends how great new York is. New York, new York , new York, I just cant get eenough of it.
