I don't like "the new Manhattan", too sterile and polished with ugly new buildings that don't sit in with the beautiful tenements and brownstones that used to define the visual NYC.

My ranking:

1. Brooklyn - best borough for actual living
2. Manhattan - don't like the people's character, like everything else
3. Queens - better food compared to Brooklyn imo, the urban layout/architecture/transportation sucks compared to BK though.
4. The Bronx - has potential, but too ghetto for me. The "good" neighborhoods are too few and would be considered "average" in other boroughs.
5. Staten Island - Unrated. The anti-NYC. I don't care if people like it or hate it, I just don't consider it to be part of New York City. Seriously, the people from SI should not say they are from NYC.

We tried secession, hard, twice! The other four boroughs saddle us with ultra-liberal politics, high taxes and ridiculous tolls, and we get nothing in return because most people have jobs and own their own home, not a popular political constituency to pander to in the city.

I'd probably be staying in Staten Island if it had seceded during one of the previous attempts, but the Brooklynization has become way too much for me and many other natives. No longer the environment I find desirable for raising a family. You ruined our streets with your personal parking "rules", destroyed entire friendly neighborhoods with your constant need to have a tough stare on, turned stop signs into nearly-invisible suggestions, and built 15 houses in the spaces 1 Staten Island family used to call home. If being a real New Yorker requires understanding that parking fights are normal on a residential street, you can keep it.

PS, I didn't vote, because I realized fairly recently that NYC has no borough worth the hassle of living in for me.
