Positives:
1) City never sleeps, always something to do, places stay open late.
2) Public Trasportation, never to far away from anything.
3) Cultural Diversity.
4) Job Opprotunities.
5) Beautiful Women

Negatives:
1) Cost of Living, Rent, food, MTA, everything just keeps going up.
2) Overcrowding, Rush Hour in the city is ridiculous
3) Foul mouth teenagers, hey I wasn't a saint as a kid, but I had respect for my elders, something todays teens just don't have.
4) Cab Drivers, have no respect for others.
5) Racism

Why would a person love to live in NYC, and why wouldn't they? What seperates NYC from the rest.
Pro:
1. The professional jobs are here and they pay very well.
2. You don't need to own a car.
3. People actually know how to cook here, so there's plenty of excellent food.
4. Everything pop culture, including the fringe (if that exists any more) is here.
5. Great Universities, museums, etc. abound.

Con:
1. Expensive as all get-out. Those professional salaries only go so far when you're paying $3500 a month for a shoebox apartment.
2. Too much construction; it's a city of scaffolding and ripped-up roads, if anything. And thus, the public transportation system is wanting and unreliable.
3. It's dirty and loud. The noise is incredible.
4. High concentration of stupid people. They're usually responsible for the sirens, too. Stupid people span the spectrum of well-educated to illiterate.
5. The weather is awful, unless you like muggy, drippy humidity nearly all the time (great for mid-westerners, I reckon).

A further word on the humidity. "An awful lot of people complain about the weather, but no one does anything about it..."

It's different in the south. I've lived in Florida for several years (8) and the heat there is different. How so? For instance: one doesn't own "winter" clothes in Florida. What's the point? Plus, shorts (short pants) are normal wear in the south as are lighter clothes in general; the pace is a little bit different. And... no one walks in the south, everyone travels by air-conditioned car, unless you're "low class."

In New York City, though, wearing long pants and possibly a coat, etc. feels "normal" as it's a more northern location (climate?). The humidity here is dreadful. In the summer, it's a drag. The only way to really handle it is to dress like a kid. But when you're packed into a subway with a hundred other sweating folks, well, ugh. In the late fall and winter, when lately it's been nothing but rain and no snow, the humidity gets inside your coat and it's downright uncomfortable, worse than the summer.

However: if you're traveling by limousine, with the air conditioning on, from air-conditioned office to air-conditioned office, things are nice - if you can get a parking spot.

I am sure it is worse. Here is the thing. NYC is home to people of *many* backgrounds. I'll bet folks from down south don't mind the heat since they are used to it. But a lot of us nordic types absolutely hate it, so for some people it's an issue.

But add the concrete all over the place, the dependance on walking and subway transportation, lack of trees in a lot of areas, and the large ridiculous number of people in a relatively small area, and yes HUMIDITY IS AN ISSUE. Very few native NY'ers like it here during the summer. Most will tell you its much nicer in the fall, early spring.

I'd pick Fall over Summer anyday, but I still feel like it's worse in other areas than here.. it's rarely humid, mostly hot, but it's manageable for me, at least.
