Depends where in New York. I'm describing Glens Falls, not Manhattan.

For me, it kind of depends on the city.



In London, I love the Indian and Chinese influence. I've been doing frequent business travel to London since the mid-1980s. Back then, Indian and Chinese were the only edible food in London other than pub fare that was within the corporate expense report limits.


In Paris, I'm not wild about getting off Eurostar at the Gare du Nord at night in the middle of the North African ghetto.


I like the Indonesian influence in Amsterdam. I try to eat rijstaffel at least once any time I'm there.

Interesting perspective, makes sense.
Panama, Chile and a few others are okay, not as safe as Spain but way better than Mexico.

If I travel to a foreign country I want to experience the traditional culture of that country. My family is from Germany and I have yet to visit, but I would hope there are some villages that are still ethnically and traditionally German. It would be the same if I visited any other country. I want to experience all the things related to traditional culture, not a conflation of multiple cultures.

If you watch travel videos about countries in Europe they like to show traditional festivals showcasing the old fashioned culture of the destination. You would assume watching the video that everyone in the country can link their family background in their home country back 100 generations and still follow the historical cultural norms of their country.
