A city with REAL gangsters (Russian, Italian, Chinese etc) Mafias. Not as many stupid shitskin punks shooting each other over who is wearing blue or red.

A city so intellectually stimulating and exciting that it can incite even negoroes into creative writing such as early raps. But that has now degenerated like everything else by (non New York) negroes, into assanine pussy punk pigtail talk like Snoopy Dogg.
This 15 year old tourist went into this bar and New York, and probably could have got served. Cept he was an asshole and said to the bartender "Just give me a Manhattan, dickhead." The Bartender said "Yes sir!" Then the kid could get the drink someone wiped a big brown booger on the inside of the glass. The kid said "Hey what the fuck? WHAT IS THAT BROWN CLUMP OF SHIT FLOATING AT THE TOP?" He said "It must be Harlem, pussy boy!" Then everyone laughed profusioly at him.

Why does Harlem stand out as such an eyesore? Why else!

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

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.

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.
