I love NYC. It's my favorite city in the U.S. and quite possibly in the world. Part of the reason is the New Yorkers. I have had incredibly positive experiences with New Yorkers every time I've visited (which is not nearly often enough).

LOL! I hate to be the one to have to break this to you, but a lot of us would kill to have 40 degree temperatures on a January morning.

I consider myself to be living in a suburb of New York City--especially since my wife and I mostly work in New York City and we only live a mile and a half from the World Trade Center, but technically we live in Jersey City, and that will probably be more interesting to answer. So, for Jersey City:

The most common misconception from fellow New Jerseyans--that you're putting your life at risk if you step foot in it--no matter where in Jersey City you go. This is partially due to what Jersey City used to be like. I think these folks picture it as something like the place you see at the end of the film Sid and Nancy. It hasn't been like that for awhile.

The most common misconception I encounter from people outside of New Jersey (aside from misconceptions about Jersey in general)--usually from people thinking about moving here because they want to be close to New York City, is that Jersey City is going to be far more affordable than other places in or close to New York City. In reality the real estate range in terms of what you can get for your money is comparable to almost everywhere else around here, including quite a few areas of Manhattan.

The most common misconception about New Jersey in general is that it's just a big industrial wasteland. In reality, much of it has a "country" feel, there are some beautiful rolling hills and small mountains, huge expanses of pine forests, great beaches, estuaries, etc. Much of Sussex County, for example, looks more like a Grant Wood painting.

I see that the crime index for Chicago has decreased every single year since 1999, which is good.

Misconceptions about St. Paul:
1. That it is a carbon copy of Minneapolis.
1a.That its is interchangable with Minneapolis.
2. That it has always played second fiddle to Minneapolis.
3. That its cultural heritage is Scandinavian/Lutheran.

Chicago is not all gangs like Al Capone and Michael Jordan. Just a few years too late on those.
