I always thought it would be a glamorous place and was shocked to see how dirty it was. People warned me about it but to actually see it and smell it blew me away!

That's pretty much NYC's calling card. The melting pot.

It is. Obviously it's not the same at 3AM as it is at 5PM, but there is plenty of activity at all hours.

There are people partying until 4AM and by that time there are also people getting ready for work.

Which pretty much defines a 24 hour city in my book! If I am getting home after 4am and not even an hour later people are getting ready for work, then yeah it's a 24 hour city. It seems that some just don't realize how many are out this late.

Yeah, if you go to the LES or Williamsburg at 2AM on a Tuesday night, there are still tons of people partying.

And I work in Springfield Gardens which is not a bustling neighborhood, but I get out work as late as 1:30 AM and there are still plenty of people driving and walking around, and buying things from the bodegas.

Also, there are tons of food options available late at night besides places like McDonald's (not in Springfield Gardens, though).

that it's a tolerant city. the only reason people appear to be tolerant of others who are not like them is because they want something from them.

What city would you say is more tolerant than New York?

Obviously you will find a-holes everywhere on earth. The measure of how tolerant New York is would be based on how it compares to other cities.
