    Yup we have the best of both worlds, Pazzy. We can be there whenever we want, and then COME HOME.

    Well as someone whose family has lived in NYC since 1850 let me say NYC is like no other place in the world.It has a magic that can dim but never die.It has it's great points and really bad points.While some of the things on that list are true some are stupid.Ask yourself how many major cities could come back from having 3000 of its citizens murdered in a time of peace.For all NYC faults..it is the center of the universe baby!icon_smile.gif Ryan

    25. You can't describe your city to anyone in your life without mentioning "melting pot", "multi-cultural", "neighborhood", or "wouldn't live anywhere else" at least once.

    New York's a great city (If you export all the New Yorkers and import nice people.)

    Now THAT'S a crock o' shite. NATIVE NYers tend to be polite, cultured and funny. It's all the people that come here trying to "prove something" that muck it up. How many natives do you know?

    Pretty accurate icon_smile.gif But as someone who left NYC after living their many years I did mind it easy to live somewhere else.

    The problem with New Yorkers is they don't even know they're rude. I live in one of the most traveled to cities in the U.S. And when someone comes in from New York, you know right away where they're from because they're devoid of any common courtesy. You say "good morning" and they stand there and glare at you like you just made a ridiculous statement. New York consistently gets voted the rudest city for a reason.

    icon_lol.gif exactly, we can chose to leave. new yorkers have to stay in that wild ass dirty zoo they call a city.

    but on a serious note, nyc has to be one of the most segregated and racist cities in the united states.

    I hear this all the time, but my family and friends are not at all like that - so I must have grown up in a parallel universe in the E. Village. I smile, say hello, always respond when someone speaks to me (if they're not crazy), hold doors open for people (and get annoyed if they don't acknowledge it), etc.

    Most of these 'rude people' are not FROM NYC, I guarantee it. And if they are rude it's because they're parents should be slapped repeatedly. There's a LOT of self-serving spoiled brats that move here from god-knows-where. And I think most people in general are 'checked out' on a regular basis. Headphones and smart phones make it all worse. They pay attention to no one but themselves.

    19. You've stopped going out on Friday nights and started going out on Tuesday nights.

    Actually - Thursday is a night more people go out - - and then Friday night is get-away night to the Hamptons.

    This. Absolutely this.


    But with that said, I agree with everything on this list. There's nothing like feeling the wind from the subway when it's 110 above ground.

    don't knock it until you try it. jersey isn't as bad as people make it out to be. yeah, we have assholes and etc but which place doesn't. i really don't give a shit to be honest. i'll make something good out of anything even if there's nothing much to it. icon_surprised.gif

    nyc is a good place to live at if you're rich and lazy. don't get me wrong, i love new york BUT as far as living there, nope. don't like living on top of people and don't like to be around crowded environments either. i need my space.

    I've never had a problem in New York. I figure when you live around so many people you loose some spontaneous curtesy because you'd spend your entire day saying "Hello! How are you?" to every stranger you met. Also, there are a lot of people from different cultures that are a bit more...abrupt than most Americans.

    I lived my first 20 years in New Jersey, until I managed to escape by joining the Army. My family before me lived there from c.1650, founding the towns of Montclair & Little Falls, if you know them. I am sufficiently acquainted with New Jersey to avoid it at all costs, and so should everyone.
