Places like Saratoga Springs have a ton of charm. Niagara Falls and the 1000 Islands are pretty unique too. Sprinkle the hockey culture, ethnic minority foods and beauty of the Great Lakes in and there's a lot to like that's not NYC.

IMO weather is not a strong suit for NY State, and the economy has sucked for a while now too. Two things that are definitely better in NC outside of NYC. Having lived in VA for the past 8 years, I've really missed the ethnic foods and some of the walkable towns (suburbs and many cities down south are not too well planned IMO). Asheville and Wilmington are tremendous however. Love both those towns.
What is true and scary about this post, in a good way, is that this and more can be done without NYC. People don't know about the festivals in Upstate NY like Syracuse's Jazz Fest, which is claimed to be the largest free Jazz festival in the Northeast or the many other waterfalls up here as well. People may not know about Letchworth State Park, Howe Caverns, the historical sites and the quaint towns. You also have smaller cities and towns with their own art scenes in terms of live theater and galleries too. There are plenty of beaches, while on lakes, in Upstate NY as well like this one in this small town: Fair Haven Beach State Park - NYS Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation
Fair Haven Area Chamber of Commerce. Discover Lake Ontario's Best Kept Secret.

But below is what most of New York State looks like outside the cities (about 40% of New York's population lives downstate in the NY Metro area).

I don't see the "creepy".

I like the fact that North Carolina distribute people in a larger area. I don't like how precious land is taken to distribute the people.

In New York, people living closer together means access to the variety. However, living closer together means a lack of space to personal belongings.

I love both cities lots but NC has to win: Charlotte, Raleigh, Fayetville, Lake Norman, The Smokies...
As a native to NC it is my favorite state my mom is from NYC (born and raised in Manhattan) so it does have a special place in my heart but NC wins definitely.

Default NY is better than NC

As stated on my title i think Ny is way better than Nc. This is based on personal experience. I would advise anyone considering to move to NC strongly not to. NC is the worst state ever. I had many bad experiences here. Also im a city girl so NC is disappointing on that side. I used to live in NY and i loved it there. Transportation,education was better there. Ny is the big apple and there's a good reason why its called that. I think many people can agree with me.

I believe New York remains the highest source of net migration for NC (like +15,000, twice that of second-place NJ). So if we count those people voting with their feet...

"NC is the worst state ever." The hordes of New Yorkers who move down every year seem to disagree.
