You are the one going out of your way to be dismissive. This is a thread about NY metro cities outside of NYC. You tell me who needs to get over themselves .......
What are you arguing about? Do you even know?
My god....................

On Long Island: Rockville Centre. I would love to live there when I'm 30.

NJ: Hoboken, Jersey City.

Westchester: White Plains

SE CT: I heard Stamford was really nice in parts.

Nothing to say about NEPA. My mom and my brothers recently moved to Allentown (LV) and she commutes daily for work at JFK. The area seems nice, she's just so far.

You are greatly limiting us because most communities in the NYC Metro are NOT cities, especially in New York and Connecticut where most people live in towns. That leaves me with saying places like - Stamford, Jersey City, White Plains, New Rochelle, Norwalk, Hoboken, Long Beach and Fort Lee. There are still alot more communities but I have no idea if they are legally "cities" or not, especially in New Jersey.

IMHO, Queens overall, is a nicer and safer borough than Brooklyn. Much of Queens is actually suburban or semi-suburban. Both boroughs are diversely built so it depends what neighborhood you are in. Brooklyn is famous more for its older low rise but high density urban development - sort of like London!

The good people of New Jersey certainly do not over valuate their position. They only ask for credit where credit is due.
Your resistance to any & everything New Jersey only serves to diminish you view in the greater scheme of things.
Playing the role of "New Yorker" to the point of caricature is boring & obvious.
And yes, Newark is a far more interesting, culturally rich city than Yonkers.
Openheads, talk about the "pot calling the kettle black"! 90% of your posts are about New Jersey only and you RARELY compliment anywhere else. Do you actually work for the state government in Trenton? In any case, I would take Jersey City over Yonkers, but Yonkers over Newark in a heartbeat!

Be careful, just because southern Queens has a large minority population does not mean it is the same as East New York or the South Bronx. Southern Queens is overwhealmingly middle class and is not a "terrible area"! Check out Cambria Heights, Howard Beach, Richmond Hill, Jamaica Estates, Queens Village, Briarwood, Rosedale etc.
