Jordandubeil: a ton of people and most of friends. Obviously, you haven't spent much time in San Jose. If you did, it must have been very brief and back in the Nineties or during dotcom bust when San Jose was really suffering. Now, San Jose is a world class city with all the big amenities you can find anywhere. Just check out San Jose, and you'll see. Go to Dt. San Jose on Fri afternoon this Summer and hang out at the farmer's market. You'll change your mind. On a warm Sat. evening, go to Santana Row and check out all those cute, upscale chics. Spend more time in San Jose, and you'll be a convert. Like I said, New York City is boring and spread out more than San Jose while you can do all the cultural things in Downtown S.J.. Subway need not apply. It's all in walking distant.

Jordandubreil, I don't pay attention to the University of England's world cities' world class stature since they lost me when they said Montreal is only as world class as San jose, Costa Rica. I don't care if I'm the only one said New York city is less desirable. As for Fashion, haven't you watch "The City" where Kelly Cuthrone said the business of fashion is struggling and is concentrating on Hollywood to make ends meet. I didn't say the whole business is moving to LA. By the way, the fashion peaked in the 90's. I like late 70's to mid 80's because the girls were not to skinnning bone.

Sorry New Yorkers, these bloggers ask for it.

San Jose is better than New York:

Weather
Natural Scenery
tons of parks through the city
safety
Downtown: New York has a crummy and boring downtown with big hole in the middle
cleanliness
Airport: check out the new airport in San Jose. By the way, Kennedy + La Guardia are ugly
and outdated
Food: Original Joes, which is old school, destroys the italian restaurant in MeatPacking district,
wharehouse area of Manhattan, around 9th Ave, no man land.
Beautiful Women: In San Jose, blond chics. In New York, short and stocky or tall and boring with
no personality-just a bone-headed fashion models
Architecture: check out the new city hall and Axis Condo on Flickr.com or Google it. Keep looking
Quality of Life
Friendliness
More communities: Mountain View, Campbell, willow Glen, Palo Alto Los Gatos, the Alameda and etc.
Better Location: California vs New York
Gateway Point: Monterey, San Francisco and Lake Tahoe/ Yosemite nearby
etc.
Hope you guys are convinced.


Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Man oh man do you have bad taste!! I really thought you were joking at first, but it's as if you've really convinced yourself that San Jose is better than NYC or London. You go againt every single opinion poll, city ranking known to man if you truly believe this. I don't think you'd find more than 10 people in the United States who agree with you. Hell, I'm certain that people who really live in San Jose would laugh in your face if you told them that San Jose is more fun than NYC and has better food, nightlfe and architecture. LOL!!

Sheesh.

OMGYUCK.

I would rather visit Hillbillyland, West Virginia than "visit" San Jose (nobody actually visits San Jose other than people there on business.)

Grosssss.

Natural Scenery
"Scenery" miles away, but San Jose as a city is so ugly. It turns my stomach. Ugly strip mall after strip mall. Fugly cookie cutter home after the next. Really a disaster of a city.

Quote:
tons of parks through the city
New York City has more parkland than San Jose. As a matter of fact, New York City boasts the highest percentage of parkland of all cities in the United States.

Quote:
1. New York City - 19.6% - [38,229 acres]
2. Washington DC -19.4% - [7,617 acres]
3. San Francisco -18% [5,384 acres]
4. Jersey City -17.3% [1,660 acres]
5. Boston -16.3% [5,040 acres]
6. Philadelphia -12.6% [10,886 acres]
7. Long Beach -10.1% [3,275 acres]

Crummy Downtown Manhattan



The other crummy "Downtown", Midtown Manhattan:




Were you dropped on your head as a child?

Quote:
cleanliness
Oklahoma City is also cleaner than New York. Guess why? Oklahoma City, just like San Jose are both insignificant villages compared to NYC. Both tiny towns with ugly dead downtowns and both lack foot traffic. How can either be dirty when the streets are deserted?

Quote:
Airport: check out the new airport in San Jose. By the way, Kennedy + La Guardia are ugly
Man Jose is a hellhole and doesn't have nearly as many international flights going in and out of the airport as JFK.

Quote:

Food. Let's not start this. As mentioned for the past few posts, New York City is continually ranked the best food city in the United States, arguably the world.


Quote:

The entire city of San Jose is no man land. Which is why nobody that matters would ever set foot in toilet that is San Jose.

Seems as if the world agrees with me...

Most visited cities by overall overseas travelers 2009

1. New York City - 7,792,000
2. Miami - 2,661,000
3. Los Angeles - 2,518,000

Huh? The vast majority of the "chics" in San Jose are Asian.

Jesus Christ, what an ugly building.

I've seen Axis Condominiums in San Jose and what an UGLY building. What the hell. I've seen much prettier condos in Queens! This entire San Jose vs NYC thing must be a taste issue, because you've done nothing but exude poor taste.

Do you really think the Axis Condo is better than the Time Warner or One Beacon Court? Or HL23? or 100 Eleveneth Avenue? Or 200 Eleventh Avenue? Or Superior Ink? Or 1 Jackson Square? Or 166 Perry Street? I could go on and on and on.

That Axis San Jose looks like a ghetto version of The Edge Condominiums in Williamsburg Brooklyn.

The sad thing is that that monstrosity is the best building in San Jofug. Proves once again how gross the city is.

Tell that to all the billioniares, millionaires and celebrities that live in NYC.

Quote:
Friendliness
People are "friendly" in San Jose because they have nothing better to do.

Quote:

Um, Greenwich, Scarsdale, Bedford, Darien, New Canaan, etc are all better than those communities.

Quote:
Better Location: California vs New York
San Jose is San Jose (a toilet) and New York City is New York City (the most powerful city the world)

The only thing you've convinced me is that you need psychiatric evaluation. Like now.

All of the talk on this thread about gangs, crime and poverty, the racial hatred and ethnic bravado puts NYC in a terrible light. No wonder the middle class OF ALL RACES is heading to exurbia. It's a damned shame that we have so much in-fighting going on when people from the outside are trying to blow us up.

You had to come to the New York City forum to make comments like this? You've got a lot to learn about making an argument! And hopefully, you don't typify San Jose.
