On the contrary. Don't forget the real seat of power in this country is in DC. some times economics needs politics to get things done in their favor. At times both politics and economics need each other. as for the market? Yes NYC is booming in Tech, mainly in the mobile app space which eventually will get consumed by bigger entities from the Bay Area and Seattle which NYC can never surpass silicon valley of Seattle in tech.

NYC is the undisputed capital of illegals.

No where else you will find so many in differnet colors and accents.

The deteriorating and run down infrastructure of nyc indicates that its power has peaked and its best days are over and it is in a sunset status.

The concentration of unskilled and semi/under civilized residents is only exceeded by major cities in the country of india.

Fulton Center and the WTC Transit Hub are both world-class transportation hubs.

The 7 line extending the subway to Hudson Yards is preparing to open.

The second avenue subway is also coming along.

Seriously. I agree with you. We know of a few fanboys here already like nywriterdude, London boy, nykiddo, urban adventurer, even seventhfloor. I'm only a fanboy of NYC sports teams nothing else.

Yea, there are definitely some nice parts, but there are a lot more rundown parts. People treat the subway system like trash heaps sometimes and having the system be 24 hours with fairly limited enforcement of cleanliness means nice things like the very new in 2012 uptown 6 transfer part of Bleecker Broadway-Lafayette which looked pretty great on opening now looks pretty dingy.

It is the pinnacle of Western civilization. Imagine the feelings of all those immigrants when they arrived at Ellis Island and looked at those skyscrapers for the first time!

No city since Rome has held this much power and might!

New York! America! The glory of it all!
Just curious, where are you from and how long have you been here?

If NYC is so powerful then ask it to overturn Obamas Exucutive Order on immigration. NYC aint nothing special. Unless you desire a career in finance, media, or fashion there is no real good reason to live there.

When NYC was the actual NYC it was much better in terms of pride and community, and of course I will agree that reducing the crime rate was positive.

In reality Manhattan is an island in the state of New York, It doesn't even make up a tenth of the state as a whole.

If you're young fresh out of college I understand the attraction and excitement. Most of you probably won't even be living in the city 5-10 years from now, you grow up, priorities change, families get started and you move on.

Transit-wise New York City is a third world country.
You need to have your rose colored glasses cleaned out a bit.
