You're correct. I guess I am guilty of treating it how people treat Pittsburgh I stand to be corrected. Must have been thinking of Missouri and Kansas.

There's no "Mid Atlantic" situation in the Midwest so I'm guilty as charged.

Why in the world would someone from Ohio want to live in NYC? NYC is where dreams go to die. It's a city reserved for the uber-rich and well-connected.

There are many other parts of the country that are more desirable...and cleaner...and smell better.

I did at one time. I finally visited the place and asked myself if I wanted that day in day out and decided it was not for me. I could try it but I'm not sure if I want to.

For certain industries it is still the place to be. Especially news, radio, television and entertainment.

I checked out Chicago, which has it's problems but is gorgeous downtown and the people are way friendlier and the vibe was a lot different than New York. Except for when they're behind the wheel. I felt a different connection to that city. I'd probably move there before dealing with New York. Maybe L.A. I think for a Midwesterner that is more than enough.

NYC is a giant and a capitol in many sectors. You don’t know what you’re talking about if that were the case people wouldn’t be leaving their nice suburbs to live with3 roommates in the Big Apple!

I never understand these weird comments!

And the benefits of NYC apply to many places like DC, San Fran, LA etc. Most cities with opportunists by now are for the Uber rich and well connected!

In a way itís like a badge of honor, if you can make it there you can make it anywhere as the song goes. I gave up the badge when I realized that life was always a struggle there and there must be another way or another place. I developed PTSD after 9/11 and thatís when I realized that NYC was bad for my health.
Moving away literally saved my life.

You said it yourself, Ohio's poorer than NY and their poor neighborhoods are way more dangerous

IKR. No disclosure as to whether the OP has actually spent time in Ohio or is from there in that initial post.

I grew up in an inner-ring suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. Moved to NYC after college 6 years ago to work in the education field. Have since gotten married and now have a 15-month old son. No plans to leave. Haven't met many other people from the midwest yet alone Ohio since I've been here and I live in a fairly transplant heavy neighborhood.
