11th State of the Union the consists of three main parts:

1. New York City - The most well known part of New York is New York City, which, contrary the popular belief is not ONLY Manhatten but also Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, and Staten Island. NYC is one of the most diverse places in the world...If you stand in Times Square for a full day, you will see someone of every nationality. Home of such shows as Rent, Wicked, and The Producers, and just an amazing place to be. NYC doesn't deserve the bad rep it has as it's been cleaned up more then the rest of the world can imagine since the 80's.

2. Long Island - LI is an island directly south of NYC that contains Naussua and Suffolk counties. We're best known for our beaches, drunk teens, and bitchy girls (we're not all bad). Horrbile accents run freely(for you it's Long Island, for us it's Lawn Guyland). DO NOT be mistaken that a an LIer thinks they are a part of NYC. LI is mostly urbanized with some farm land. Alot of the population is rich (Great Neck, Manhasset) , but there are some poorer areas (Hempstead).

3. Upstate- Usually considered anything North of NYC. Upstate tends to be rather rural but can have a crazy party life on weekends. Many people believe that the upstate-ers are intermarried hicks, but this is not the case. Upstate New York is just the same as the rest of NY except a little bit colder and a little less polluted
1. "New York City...Center of the Universe."
2. Long Island- Home to the most potheads in the United States.
3. Upstate - Gorgeous!

The mother of the modern city, to which in one way or another every other city in the world is compared. Always something to do here (if not everything), but it's generally the best idea to visit in fall or spring, when the city's weather and appearance are at their greatest. Summer, particularly August, would be a no-go: not only is it hot and humid, but a lot of people have gone on vacation, so there's comparatively less to do. If you have to go in summer, try anywhere from late May to early July. I'd recommend, among a hundred thousand other things, kayaking on the Hudson River — don't worry, it's clean, not to mention it's free.
Jack: "I went to New York in August and it sucked."

Jill: "No wonder, you fool; you went in August when it's hot and nasty and everyone's out of town. You might as well have gone to Calcutta. Come back in the fall and you'll enjoy yourself."

Two months later...

Jack: "I went back to New York and it kicked ass! I'm glad I listened."

Jill: "See? I told you."

Jack: "Let's go back next year!"

Jill: "Okay."

1. The only state worth living in.

2. The Greatest city in the world, and one of the few real cities in the United States. Unlike other cities, where life is dead and everyone lives in the suburbs, New York continues to grow as a city. It's rivals (and haters) live in Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New Jersey, and think that these cities, particularly LA, are dream cities, when most of them are declining while New York is growing. The city is proud of its diversity as it houses all people from around the world.

The city consists of five boroughs (NOT boros): Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island (which identifies itself more with NJ than NY). Each borough has its own unique character and way of life. Manhattan is the bustling city center, and home to jazz music. It is inhabited by the very wealthy people, and it's rent (SoHo and TriBeCa) is the highest in the nation. Brooklyn is where steriotypical New Yorkers (the "fuhgaddaboudits") live, as well as most of the rap and hip-hop industry (the good stuff at least). Queens is home to many parks and industry, and is full of tourist attractions. The Bronx is where most of the inner city is, but the people from there take pride in that they live in the Bronx. Those areas which are not inner-city are often controlled by a mob, or are middle-class. It also includes beautiful Pelham Bay Park. Staten Island is basically home to suburbanites.

New York is home to many of the world's best food. It's famous for its brand of pizza, as well as knishes. Brooklyn is famous for Egg Creams and Italian desserts. We also have a lot of "coffee shops" which are like diners or hamburger stands.

We are home to some of the best TV shows, including Seinfeld, Sex and the City, Law and Order, NYPD Blue, Saturday Night Live, and others. We are also the home to many excellent sports teams, including the hated-across-the-rest-of-the-US-especially-Boston Yankees, the neglected, underrated Jets, the Great and Holy New York Knicks, the Rangers (which are hated in NJ more than anywhere else combined), the forgotten Mets, and supposedly the overrated Giants (which are really NJ's team, real New Yorkers are Jet fans).

We are also home to such proud publications as the New York Times and the New Yorker.

On September 11, 2001, our city was brutally attacked by deamons, but we all came together to help each other out because we love each other and our city, and we have continued to stay strong while the rest of the country looks down on us for being too liberal, the fact is we know how to do things better.

We truly are the City that will Never Sleep.
I wanna be a part of it New York, New York!
