A megacity, the biggest city in North America. Wall Street, epicenter of world trades and business, a good place to go broke and wind up living on the streets like most people. NYC is not part with Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and/or Staten Is. Although most people confused it, NYC is only Manhattan, Ghettos everywhere mostly around the edges of the island. Uptown: Harlem, Spanish Harlem notorious for crack/cocaine fiends, high crime but never reported. It is also home of grea jewish population. As you go down south on the island, there are ghettos with infamous projects with high crime rates. Midtown: Tourist center of the world, you see tourists from every part of the world who are mostly ripped off or musguided on purpose, unfortunately. Downtown (SoHo, NoHo, Tribeca, LES, The Villages, Little Italy, Chinatown and the Financial District): Dangerous but only in some parts. Little Italy filled with mobsters who work with the NYPD. Chinatown, 2nd home of the bootleg DVD's after Harlem, which is the capital of bootlegs. Also home of chinese triads and gangs. The Villages as you all might know, flamboyant people aka Homosexuals. And the financial district, where money is made and people go broke afterwards. Manhattan is a tough city to live in, as the saying goes "If you make it here in NYC, you can make it anywhere". look up the rest of the 4 boroughs for definitions.
New York City is the capital of the world.

The city of dreams. Stereotypes are parcially true, yet not fully.
Not ALL New York City residents are douchebags.

The only douchebags there, are the ones in the business district 'cause they have to pay their rent. It's a job. Give them a break.
We do all drink coffee, We don't always enjoy the tourists.
And yeah, we do have pride in our city, well, don't you? We love where we live, and isn't that enough?

You like to talk about where YOU live right? Well we just happen to bring it up in almost every conversation about it.
If you know a TRUE new yorker, you'll know we're blunt, sometimes mean, but often extremely sweet, welcoming, and friendly. We keep to ourselves, and like to get things done, which means no 2-hour conversations at the grocery store while getting milk.

And for everyone who thinks Broadway, and theatre is gay, and the people are fake? They are the realest and most amazing people you will meet.
9/11 was a terrible day for America. People who are truly affected from the attack, and bring it up at the right time? GIVE THEM A BREAK. The people who DON'T live here usually bitch a moan about it like it's their job, so don't assume them to ACTUALLY LIVE HERE- People DON'T like to talk about it...
This place is amazing for those who love it. If you don't like it, you don't like it. Just don't knock it till you've actually been here, and stop calling us assholes, cause you guys are seriously disturbed.
New York City Pizza and bagels are THE best. They suck everywhere else, get over it.
sorry boston.

The biggest, most beautiful city on Earth. The heart and soul of the United States. 24 hours of pure, nonstop energy from Harlem to Battery Park.

A large city in which its inhabitants are proud to be from but there are only three good things there the Yankees, the pizza, and the Giants. other than that its a dirty and unsanitary city. i would never want to live in New York even if they paid me.
