Apparently over half of the people here don't know that New York is actually a state, not a city. New York City is a city, but New York isn't, contrary to popular belief. I'm not even from New York, and I know this. Get your shit together, idiots.
While New York City is a pretty nice place, every single idiot that lives outside of New York state fails to acknowledge Upstate New York, the better New York. Upstate has some great villages and towns, and contrary to popular belief, has some cities, such as Albany (The REAL capital of the state), Buffalo, and Rochester.
While NYC is known for having some assholes, it's really not like that as a whole. NYC has five boroughs: The Bronx
, and Staten Island
. Manhattan is known to be dense and where most of the action takes place, The Bronx is filled with minority ghettos, Brooklyn has a large Jewish population, as well as some landmarks, Queens is probably the most diverse area in the country, as well as being in one of the most diverse cities in the world, and Staten Island is not even known for anything because 85% of people don't know that it exists. Many people pick on Staten Island, but Impractical Jokers
come from there (good show. If you don't know about it, you are missing out on a great show), so don't pick on it.
Me: I've actually Never been to New York, the state or the city.
