By the way, New York is my hometown and I love it. But I know plenty of people who were underwhelmed. With all the attention and all the promotion, they were expecting better.
wow. It is what you make it... I'm not from there. My father is.. People are nice there... and New Yorkers I've met outside of nyc are always down to earth and friendly...

they won't hesitate to tell you how they feel at a moments notice which is what I find refreshing....

I can't stand phony friendly people and overly friendly people. It's nice to meet ppl who say what they mean and mean what they say

I think you may be onto something. I certainly can't tell the difference between the two places.

Let's play a game:
which of these photos show Disney World, and which ones show Boston?

I had trouble with this one, but then I noticed that someone in the first photo was wearing a poncho. Dead giveaway.

In all seriousness, though, why is Disney World the only place on earth where people wear rain ponchos?

How can NYC not be overrated?

Nonetheless, love it or hate it, it is undeniably exceptional.

I feel like NY is the only city that cant be rated. The people who don't like it usually say because it was too much. NY is awesome. No city like it on this planet.

What do you mean "humor"? I was being absolutely serious.

I honestly think that you made a very insightful point.

I'd agree Milwaukee is underrated. It get's overshadowed by it's huge neighbor to the south (Chicago.)

Madison is also underrated, IMO. But being such a small city, it's understandable it doesn't get much attention.

Overrated: Washington D.C. area. In my mind, the cost of living does not reflect quality of life.
Underrated: Atlanta, GA. I grew up in Nashville and enjoyed many visits to Atlanta. As the sort of capitol of the south, it has offerings that no other city in the south does in the way of dining and entertainment. Also, my favorite music group is from Atlanta. I've had some good times in that city. Also a fan of Athens, GA.
