Hillier the better. Mountains are best of all though. I feel at home in the mountains. I do not like living in flat areas.

If I didn't have mountains, I'd have nothing to see when looking out my windows.

I actually donít consider nyc to be flat in comparison to a place like Chicago unless flat on city data doesnít actually mean straight up flat.

Itís a city that is flat with many hilly areas (The Bronx, Upper Manhattan, Staten Island)

Brooklyn and Queens are two largest boroughs are mostly flat with certain parts that are hilly (Crown Heights, Jamaica Estates etc)

Chicago does flat really well, though. There are hills in some of the northern suburbs, but I'm a big fan of the ravines in the northern suburbs (again). Ever see Ferris Bueller's Day Off....ravines.

Funny you mention this. NYC isn't flat, but it's so built up that nobody can tell at a glance.

Eh, Brooklyn and Queens are pretty flat, and Manhattan is flat below, say, the 130s. Most visitors, and even residents donít see the hilly areas.

Why not both? Although I think hills are only really nice for aesthetic purposes.

Brooklyn, Queens and part of Manhattan are not the entire city though so I don't see how this disproves anything I said.

Besides that, the land there wasn't flat originally either. It was dug up and leveled over time as the city grew. There's a lot of really neat unknown history to where lies NYC.
