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.

A disgusting City in the Northeastern region of the United States filled with trash and the most obnoxious annoying people you will ever meet. The city is also well overcrowded and reeks of an unknown but unbearable stench.
I don't want to go to New York City. It's dirty and the traffic is terrible.

New York City is actually five small counties(boroughs) in the southern part of New York state. Two of the counties are on western Long Island(Queens and Brooklyn); two counties are islands(Manhattan and Staten Island); and one county is on the southern tip of the state(Bronx). New York City is one of the financial capitals of the Western Hemisphere and has many attractions for tourists. Most of these attractions are in Manhattan. However, there are some good places to visit in the other four boroughs.

New York is a great place to visit and has some great restaurants. Be prepared, though. Many things in Manhattan are very expensive. If you want a good, cheap restaurant, I recommend going to one of the other boroughs(specifically Queens). The cultural diversity of New York makes way for many restaurants with cuisines from many countries.

Some good attractions in the city include Bronx Zoo, the Coney Island aquarium, Museum of Natural History, Intrepid Museum, and Statue of Libterty. For sports fans, there is also Shea Stadium in Queens, Yankee Stadium in Bronx, Giants Stadium and Prudential Center in nearby New Jersey, Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, and Nassau Veterans Memorial Colloseum in Nassau county(east of Queens).

Despite all this, New York City does have its problems. Inflation is causing the prices of good to go up even more. Not to mention, gentrification and other things are causing housing to go up. Ever since 9/11, it's been getting worse and worse to live in the city. Even in the less expensive outer boroughs. On top of this, some of the residents are arrogant morons who like to talk about how great the city is. Some parts of the city are also areas you want to stay away from(Harlem, certain parts of Brooklyn, Queens, and Bronx).
*Tourists from another city.*

1st tourist: New York City has been a great place to visit the last four days. The Statue of Liberty looks splendid from here. We should go see it.

2nd tourist: Sure, then we can go to Shea Stadium later and watch those Mets get whipped by the Braves! The Braves shall rise again!

1st tourist: Ok...

Once the capital of the United States. Apparently it was such a horrible place they moved it to some other place. NYC continues this reputation today by transporting its infestation to a paradise known as south Florida, thus ruining it forever.

"New York City is a massive pile of garbage on America's east coast, and is thankfully downwind to the rest of America's citizens. It is the only city in the country that prides itself on being over-priced, filthy, and rude to visitors, yet out-of-towners still show up in droves.

Citizens of New York City are generally douchebags. They rarely take pride in anything they've accomplished in life, but rather where their mother happened to shit them out. People who no longer live in NYC will tell you how great it is (in barely understandable English) even though you didn't ask and couldn't care less.

As of 9/11/2001, apparently EVERYONE in New York City and the surrounding cities, or even people who had a layover there once, narrowly averted death by changing their travel plans that day. They usually tell this to everyone within earshot to score sympathy.

In summation, New York City is to be avoided at all costs. Furthermore, Hollywood should stop making lame-ass movies and TV shows there, because we're all fucking sick of it.


Vinny: "I say Queens is the bestest burrough in New York City!"

Bob: "You live in Seattle now, retard. Nobody here gives a shit." "


New York City:
A World Class City, above all else in North America. It's really a joke when bitter, miserable Massholes (or people in other New England states blindly allying themsleves to them) poke fun at NY because of their own insecurities about their lame excuse for a city, Boston. Boston is not even 1/10 the city New York is population-wise, and not even 1% fun-wise. If this isn't enough fuya, which it never is for BloSux fans, read on. Some Massholes may even attempt to reason that Boston is a better city for families and visting... BULL-FUCKING-SHIT! Tell me how many people visit Boston... then tell me how many like it. It's only a good city if you like getting shit-faced with a bunch of miserable Bostonians during one of the city's bad sports teams performances. Before I end, the weather there, like the people, is always fucking cold and clammy.

I win. New York City wins.


See you in 2086 Red Sux, you SUCK!!!

Give it up Boston, you just suck and can't handle it!

FYI I am from Connecticut NOT New York and I am really fucking sick of hearing massholes bashing this great American city.
Bostonian: If I could kill any state it'd be New Yahk (New York City in Masshole Language)
Me: Listen if ya think "killin", or whateva ya mean by that, New Yawk will make Boston the best city, you're retarded... yud hafta kill the other 250 decent cities in our country ta do that.
Bostonian: Fuck you. Go Sox!!
Me: Just keep sayin that ya pile uh shit.

An overpriced, overrated, skyscraper filled, industrial wasteland in the Hudson River Valley in the state of New York.
How can anyone live among all this overcrowding and filth in New York City? Life is much better in the South.

After living in Brooklyn All my life, The only thing I could say is that I would rather live in a trashcan. This is absolutely the worst place in the world for me. I hate every single aspect of this depressing, downfilled, shitty, sacrcastic excuse for a city.

New York City is like 1/2 shit hole and the other 1/2 is awsome. I'll give it places like time square central park and shit like that, but most of it is filled with traffic and mobs of people. The air smells like shit from all the car exaust. To some people it might be the greatest place in the U.S. or maybe even the world, but thats probably only because the only places they've ever been to there are like Brodway and Madison Square Garden. Some people just love NYC because september 11th happened and they've never even been there before. It's not like I don't care that that happened but that doesn't make NYC any better of a place. If your from NYC I respect you, NYC is just not for me.
i <3 new york
pish tosh, thats cause you've never been anywhere else
