Is this the place to raise a family ?
I would love to, join the U.S. Army to get the military service required to join the NYPD and at least start a family in New York and I was planning, to move my family down to Florida
(Somewhere Most Likely Near Sarasota) and live unitl I retire
(but, unless NYC would truly be the place for me to live or I love it then I wouldnt leave)

It's where the promise of urban life is fulfilled--and constantly reinvented. It's the drawn bowstring of the universe--and it never goes slack.

Anywhere else in the country that would have been a big (and rare) night out. In New York I can do it all the time.
Yep. So many top notch options for entertainment and self-realization are right there for the taking and can be had for next to nothing if you play your cards right. Every block seems to have an interesting story and the city keeps reinventing itself. So many different types of people and cultures crammed into a small area who manage to get along and actually appreciate each others' differences. So much sheer liveliness all over the city.

And winter isn't too bad. You really can't beat Christmas in NYC.

I love New York for all the reasons others have given in this thread.

You can't help to love all these neurotic people. At least once a day you'll get a chuckle over something around here.
