That is the wrong way to think. You are staying blind to everything. One day you will get on a bus or train and suddenly you will see a bunch of cops running to investigate something, only to discover it is a terrorist attack. NYC is very vulnerable and will always be that way. I listen to the news. I do my best to keep updated on what is happening, so if there is a danger, I can stay clear of it.
I kind of disagree with that. Supposedly NYC has the largest counter-terrorism squad in the nation. "air, land, and sea". Read all about it below people.

Miami Beach is cheap compared to NYC.


I used to think Miami Beach was overly posh and expensive, now I think its cheap and might move there


hopping from one elitist enclave to another, I think Manhattan is great in summer, Miami Beach great in spring.

Miami beach is a lot of fun. And I would too, consider moving down there, but jobs are scarce, and don't pay as much as they do here in NYC

Don't get mad. Just do what you got to do! Most of the nay sayers where you're currently from are are probable just jealous because they don't have to cojones to do it themselves.

Don't make life decisions on anyone else's advise. You can take their advise, use what you need of it and chuck the rest.

Nobady69: If a major terrorist attack occurred here, NYC would be helpless. I hate to tell you this, but security in NYC is very bad. It was reported on the news a few months ago. Whatever you do, don't believe everything you read.

Forget Manhattan in the summer. It stinks here with all the homeless peeing everywhere. Dogs spraying. Trash all over the place.

Likeminas: The cost of living is cheaper in Miami so you get more for your money than you do in NYC.

Dont listen to all these clowns hating on NYC...People like hhusted are miserable people who will hate whatever town they live in, this place is no exception to them.
You sound like you may be cut out for this place, and like many have suggested, if you don't like it or fall flat on your face someone back home will send you a bus ticket and at least you'll have a great story!
NYC is not that difficult, as long as your not lazy or racist and have a good sense of adventure YOU'LL ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT HERE!

funny, you speak so highly of SF. Have you lived there? starting to think you've never even been there..WAY WAY WAY more homeless in SF than NYC.
And i guess you think finding a job or apt. in SF is easier than NY?
seriously, go visit SF and get your facts straight.
