What do you mean they don't have a working subway? The complaint is about delays and reroutes, not a shutdown. The city, state, and national government should be doing a better job, but your statements are absurd.

"It's been a summer of fun," said Long Island Rail Road rider Dylan Mitchell. Mitchell, a lawyer, said he didn't experience delays or crowded trains on his daily commute from Manhasset to Penn Station.

Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chairman Joe Lhota, who is in charge of the Long Island Rail Road, said the railroad's July on-time percentage was not only higher than July of 2016 but higher than any other month to date in 2017.

Hong Kong has a more international variety of people than Seoul. Both are very urban.

Hong Kong does not have a no man land or dmz. There are people living in villages near the border with Shenzhen.

Hong Kong is more similar to NYC and London. Industries, streets in the business and old districts, skin colours of white collar workers and travellers, the use of English in some multinational companies.

And Hong Kong has the most high earning westerners in Asia with a variety of different jobs. Westerners hang around in expensive bars and restaurants in HK and Singapore. Unlike HK and Singapore, Most high paid positions are not open to foreigners in most other Asian cities. The variety of jobs is limited to foreigners , mainly English teaching in most other Asian cities.

The Mainland Chinese in Seoul mainly came from Northeast and Northern China, are mostly ethnic Koreans from China. The Mainland Chinese in HK came mostly from Southern China, are mostly Han.

Rice in HK are cheaper than South Korea. South Korea uses South Korean grown rice, HK imports cheap Thai and Vietnamese rice.
