why does everyone have a problem with others thinking NYC is overrated, but hardly anyone cares about people saying LA is overrated? lol

with me it has nothing to do with how the city advertises itself. i think nyc is overrated only in the sense of all these people thinking/claiming that the best of every-single-thing in the country(or sometimes world) is found in nyc or from nyc. like something being from nyc automatically makes it the best. it's silly. it's mostly annoying from people that aren't from there, have never been there or have only been once or twice and haven't even explored half a borough...so they don't know about anything there. they just admire it so much they think the best of everything is there. so it has nothing to do with the city itself or what it has. to me its basically the admirers' ridiculous thoughts of it that makes it overrated.

Actually, NYC advertises itself just about right since year after year NYC is continually voted America's favorite city by surveys and polls released from travel agencies and magazines.

NYC isn't advertising itself as anything, blame Hollywood and visitors/admirers from mainland United States (who make NYC the most visited city in the United States) for "overrating" NYC, not New Yorkers.

The only city that I found overrated was Los Angeles. I think what killed it for me was Hollywood and Beverly Hills, I feel those two areas are so overrated and I really disliked them and wanted to get out of them ASAP. The rest of the city I liked, not loved, but liked, but definitely was impressed more by my visit on the same trip to San Diego than L.A.

well i said it has nothing to do with how it advertises itself or what it has. and it has nothing to do with it being ranked people's favorite city. that's expected. it's people's idea that the best of everything is in or from nyc...JUST because its nyc. that's the only thing that makes it overrated for me.

Wait, let me rephrase that, a lot of single fine women who have hard time getting a date due to all the gayness. Back in my single days, I dated so many women it was exhausting. And by dating I mean boning. #winning

Besides, who are you to cast stones? Aren't you from Charlotte? I once say someone fall over and die right in the middle of the street from boredom there.

I kid, I kid. Charlotte is EXCITING.
Yes Atlanta has many hot women, who are actually men with plastic surgery dressed like women, and I'm sure you "boned" many of them during your experimental period in life.


Classy ATL cougars.

Is that fake show the Real Houswives the only thing you bring up about Atlanta?

That's not even reality dude.
