The only place where everyone can be in one place and yet mind their own business, whether it being on their blackberry or being deep in thought, with the occasional run-in all try to avoid. You barely even notice other people. You can be wearing the silliest Lady Gaga outfit and nobody will even give you a second look. It's the only place that isn't a community; so many people within the thirteen miles and yet you don't know anyone except your close circle of friends. The hottest eligible bachelors are found here. You don't need to be a New Yorker to fit in, because standing out is exactly what it means to fit in there. It is globally known for its diversity and rich culture and for its success in the film and business industry. You can come to New York to pursue whatever dreams you have. And also, New York City is home to many. Just don't wear any "I <3 NY" souvenirs and you'll fit right in -- they scream out tourist and have "tourist" written all over it. And don't stand in the corner of the sidewalk looking at a map.
*Woman on the sidewalk looking at map, wearing an I <3 NY sweater*
Man: Tourist?
Woman: Yeah, how'd you know?
Man: Well, for starters, native New Yorkers don't ever wear those sweaters. And most natives know how to get around without looking at a map.
Woman: Oh well, thank you. How do you get from Madison to Fifth Avenue?

Also known as China, or New Asia. Do they bring them over here by boatloads or plane cargo????
"I walked down the street in Flushing, New York. There was ALOT of asians. It smelled like fish and rice. I cried, because I realized that they pork-fried all the Americans and sold them in the Chinese food store down the block. And the dogs. Yeah. Don't forget the dogs.

If you already don't know anything about NY (much like the idiots who have already posted on here), than wow! New York is a State that contains NYC which draws most attention away from other parts of the state because of it national and world importance. New York State used to be a very nice place to live, however the taxes and ever-increasing cost of living makes New York one of the most undesirable places to live.
Not all of upstate NY is farmland! There are cities in upstate NY that are comparable to other national cities, such as Cleveland, Houston, Atlanta, and Orlando.

New York City gains most of their rough edge from their incorporation of four outer regions known as boroughs. People from the Bronx and Brooklyn are tough people and have little or nothing in common with those who are residents of Manhattan. Queens and Staten Island are suburban in character, but Queens is the most diverse place in the nation.

Long Island contains Brooklyn and Queens, but is not considered part of LI by many people. The counties of Nassau and Suffolk constitute Long Island. LI suffers from high taxes and increasing government incroachment.

(1) The fucking ONLY city in the world. No other city can even begin to compare.
(2) A lackluster farming state in the Northeastern United States. (Also called upstate.) Includes places like Westchester, Rockland, Suffolk, Nassau, and Niagra Falls.

Most people recognize the state because it is home to Manhattan. Life in New York (anywhere underneath upstate at least) is truly the fast life. New York definitely takes the prize for having the best Italian food, the best bagels, the most diversity, and the best fashion. However, just like any other state, New York has it's downsides too. The taxes are quite high, the quality of living is going downhill, and people tend to be too caught up with material things. I was born and raised in Long Island, New York and have experienced things there that I would have never experienced anywhere else. Also, it is true that many Long Islanders have an accent, (we pronounce "dog" like "dawg") but we can't help it! With that said, it is an awesome place to visit, but not to live (hence why I no longer live there). Many (not all) New Yorkers tend to drive aggressively. To all of the people that hate on New York, keep it to yourselves. To all of the people that gloat about how New Yorkers are better than everyone else, keep that to yourselves too. All in all, VISIT New York every once in a while, have the time of your life, and then go back home!
Boy, I sure am proud to be from New York, but I would never want to live there!

1. A big city that mainly consists of high paid buisiness men, gangstas, and homeless people following you around asking for money

2. A reality tv star

1. "My trip to New York sucked! A high paid buisiness man ran over my foot, some gangstas mugged me for a pack of cigarettes and a towel, and some homeless guy peed on my foot!

2. If you were standing next to New York when all the density of the earth collapsed, you'd be drowned in silicone.
