I've lived elsewhere besides downstate NY, too.
What do you mean it makes no sense?

You have been going on and on about being afforded all these opportunities to become cultured due to you living in NY. I just figured they must have been reserved for those from NY since you act as if someone from Savanah, GA could never have these opportunities.

lol yeah. No where in the world will you find every culture represented. But NYC (specifically Queens) has the most languages spoken out of the entire country, so therefore it has the most cultures that we were exposed to growing up

You just don't get it do you?

Many many people have showed you other aspects to being cultured and how one can be uncultured in NYC

Just give it up

I'm not saying EVERYONE in NYC is cultured, but it probably has the largest number of cultured people. You know, this was turned around onto me with people insulting me. I had to prove them wrong (even though I know it isn't worth it) that I AM more cultured than most people on here are. Someone from NYC who isn't cultured is someone who doesn't feel the need to see the world beyond their borough, never spends their free time discovering things about cultures/the world/their city.

So, quit patting yourselves (not you, the poster --- generally speaking) on the back about how diverse your culture is in NYC and other urban locations. Your culture is DIFFERENT. It's not better or as diverse as you think it is. You are just so cocooned in urban culture with a like-minded media that reinforces how special you (and they) are that you believe it.

Actually, my best friend lives in Manhattan and frequently goes to a bar that plays country/blue grass music, bull-riding, Nascar on tv, etc.

The only people that are not uncultured are the people that do not get from their house. However if they go out to places, they will be exposed to different type of people and different cultures
