NYC is still filled with families of all sorts though. Young people in the suburbs (who don't move to NYC or out of state) tend to just live with their parents until age 30 +.

Jack in the Box used to be a thing in NY, an older guy was telling me about how he would get wasted and go there.

Yeah there are families in NYC (I'm talking about Manhattan) but I think the trend tends to be outwardly toward the boros/suburbs at some point. I have 2 friends in Manhattan with young kids, they'll be lifers probably. I've lived in the burbs my whole life. Moved out @ 26. I work in the city but much prefer the suburb life so I suck it up & commute in, ha.

We used to have Roy Rogers and I miss it!


Just got Chik Fil-A very recently.

That really depends on ethnicity and subculture. Asians are buying million dollar homes in Brooklyn and Queens so I'm sure they don't plan on going anywhere. Many hipster types also don't seem to show interest in leaving Brookltn even if they end up having kids.

There are still some upstate! They have good burgers.

And us getting Chik Fil A is further proof that regional differences are fading. If we get Waffle House, it's a wrap. There are some in the Lehigh Valley which is not far.

Not really controversial. Local culture in the United States is the weakest it's ever been.

Where? Roy Rogers was a thing that was more common Downstate or maybe up to about the Hudson Valley, but that was it.

I will say that things like brands, stores, etc. can vary within a state, let alone comparisons between different states. For instance, how many Downstate NYers know about Garbage Plates or Speidies?

To add to the Michigan thing, brands like Vernors and Faygo were more common there than NY, even though you could find both occasionally. They call sneakers Tennis Shoes and can have some Coney Island hot dog spots, especially in the Detroit area.

The biggest difference is between rural and urban, regardless of region.
