I love the fact that it's several hours away, so I can visit when I want to but can otherwise stay safely away from that mess of a city.

I swear it seems people that move here appreciate it more than natives. I take the city for granted and get annoyed and impatient more often that not. Some days the city is my best friend, and others its not.

I love: The smell of the city. That weird moment when you stop and think "I live in New York City" and then keep moving. Huge slices of pizza for 99cents. Crazy underground Studio 54 parties in Brooklyn.

Just be thankful you don't live in Detroit lol. New York is the greatest city in the country and maybe even the world, I just wish I could afford to live there comfortably.

Things to do during the wee hours of the morning and the black/white cookie. Shouldn't have to mention pizza and basically food from all around the world.

I was born there...as were my parents...and some of their parents.

I have lived in the Bronx and Queens and Manhattan...graduated from Manhattan College.

And I doubt I will ever be there again other than passing through on an airplane.

The City of Oz. No place like it. I took my present wife for a one day tour. We did all the spots below 59th street in a 8 hour sweep.

I also remember slogging up outside of Bellvue in 2 feet of snow after dropping off my first wife...a Bellvue nurse...there are no better.

New Yorkers are not friendly...no way. My present wife will testify to the belief that she should have resorted to mayhem when dealing with NYers at a Deli counter. And she is right. She is a western Canadian by the way...and free of the normal US prejudices.

A wonderous place...but not suited to normal human beings. And that is not all bad.

Thanksgiving/Christmas is the best time in NYC. The only bad thing is it's cold but it's spectacular!

I agree. Whenever I leave NYC to go places like Pennsylvania, Florida, Conneticut etc. everybody I meet is much, much friendlier. Hell, you even get hellos from people walking by even if they don't know who you are. New Yorkers are steretyped for being rude, and unfriendly, and obviously, this stereotype didn't come from nowhere.
