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.

Generally where a lot of people don't get along and the same races of people populate similar area's, though this is in part due to economics and the fleeing white demographic. Once you get out into the cities, you will be harrassed for taking part in a order that isn't native to the 'worldy' area and this will lead too a mass frenzy of followers and snobs, only to be broken up by random moments of stupidity to gain social status and acceptance. Although the older slaves are pretty friendly.
In New York the people like to give you hints you're getting a clue.

Has a strong dutch, italian, greek ancestry. Uses the word wicked. Has high

taxes is a expensive and ritzy area. And is beautiful. Yes there are quite a few

rude and uncivilized people. Is not nearly as racist as southern states(TEXAS).

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!
