I agree that New York City can offer great things but someone can find great culture, great food, and positive things like that in other places. How do you feel about my post higher up on the page?

I know some people that lived in New York City that didnt lead cultural cosmopolitan lives that you described. I know some people that lived in New York City and were bored and felt uninspired. And someone can still find horrible food, horrible culture, and actual negative things in New York City.

Im a native New Yorker that loves things about New York City, but I just enjoy New York more and my memories there when I have a realistic attitude about that city, and can appreciate and enjoy other places in the world and America too, such as living and enjoying Seattle where I am right now, and also see other people that can make the most of their time in New York City but still appreciate and enjoy other places and have true worldly moods that aspects of New York City tries to promote where someone cares about other places in the world outside New York City and that great positive things can be elsewhere.

Orlando, but most people I know wouldn't dare live here so it's not really overrated, it just sucks. It's not even considered a city to me, just one big nasty suburb with miles and miles of houses with no jobs and some of the nastiest people in the country, mostly rejects who can't make it in a real city and the retired population is huge. It's terrible for young professionals and people who want to go further in life.

Im not saying that other places aren't great and don't have culture and things of that nature. Just about every city worth anything has those things. New york just happens to have the most and plenty of the best, its americas prime city why wouldn't it. Theres nothing wrong with that

As far as new yorkers themselves, many don't engage in cultural activities but thats neither here nor there for me. Many do engage in it and the point is that they are available regardless. If your bored and uninspired in new york than thats more like a personal problem theres nothing boring or uninspired about the city. So its more of a reflection of that individual. "When one tires of london he tires of life" same could be said about ny

How is Orlando overrated if it never marketed it's self as a place for young professionals?

I can't stand how many people from Florida diss their own state. I mean people that live in even worse conditions don't even complain that much. It really makes Florida look more horrible than it really is. I love Florida <<< you barely ever see that on this site, so I feel like I had to type it.
