I think all the pics I showed, and the history of Florida is pretty amazing considering NY has been around ALOT longer, and considering Florida is technically a newer state.

Way to change the subject when you are proven wrong.

The NE, not JUST NY, has far more history, culture, MONEY, topical geography, than Florida.

Keep trying to drum up business, Mr. Real Estate Agent.

Default History is not Florida's selling point.

Actually with the exception of St Augustine (Spanish garrison city during the colonial era) and to a lesser extent Northern Florida --- most of Florida has LESS history than almost all other states east of the Mississippi. History is not Florida's strong point and large parts of central and southern Florida seem to date only from about 1900 when the railroads came down.

They tell me the main road (Rte. 41) here in Naples was a DIRT ROAD in the 50s, which was when I was in elementary school in NYC. The apartment building I grew up in in Manhattan was built in 1895 (marble fireplaces, tin ceilings, canopies, doorman, glass and brass all over). That is only a few decades younger than Florida's statehood.

I lived in Smithtown (way out LI) for 20 years. It was founded in 1695. The buildings are still standing from that time period where the Smiths lived and when to church. Even LI has more history than the majority of Florida.

Just so you are aware, history did not start when we were colonized. Florida has a history strectching back before NY.

No, Florida does not have as many museums as NY but what is the measure of culture. There are about 162 different deifinitions for it.

NY gross state product was $1.1. trillion in 2007, Florida was $735 Billion. Not as much but clearly not a pauper state.

As far as topical geography. Florida would have NY beat. Being topical geography is the geography of a certain location and Florida is larger than NY.
Just because you don't type the topography of Florida does not mean it does not exist.
Did you even know what topical geography was when you typed that?

In regards to me being a Realtor.

You add that on to most of your posts to me and it just shows your lack of common sense.

How you could possibly get that I am trying to drum up business from that post is beyond me and I am sure beyond anyone with some semblance of intelligence.

Well Polo is right and Florida does have some history --- especially Northern Florida which is about as old as the newer parts of the southeast. Except for the area around St Augustine, its just not like colonial Virginia, The Carolinas, Louisana, Georgia or even parts of Kentucky.
