Ok fine. South Florida is not unique because it looks like the Carribean. And NYC is not unique because it strives to be Europe.

Spent my summers in Hammond as a kid and my uncle took us to Chicago all the time. I've been to London several times.

As a NATIVE Manhattanite, London is more similar than Chicago.

People will do anything to put down NYC on here because their cities will never compare. It makes us laugh, to be honest.

I have family in Brooklyn. Brooklyn is all bricks and street corners like Philidelhphia. I also have cousins in Philly.

to them. Beats me. No difference really, except all the NE tranplants, who they don't like, are in SOUTH FLORIDA.

Personally, North Florida, SW Florida, South Florida is just plain FLORIDA to me. Hopefully, will be far, far away very soon,
