New Yorkers are steretyped for being rude, and unfriendly, and obviously, this stereotype didn't come from nowhere.
The same could be said for any true area of importance. Ever been to London or Paris? These are fast paced epicenters of commerce, wealth and hustle. People in these cities have better things to do than to tell you hi.

New York City isn't the country. Move to Syracuse if you want that.

I live in Jersey city, so Nyc is very close.

I love the hustle bustle. I love that i get to see so many people at the same time. I love that the people are mostly from different parts of the country and the world.
When I am down and i depressed i take my car and go for a drive to manhattan. It lifts up my spirits and i feel relaxed and happy. If i could afford it i would live there. But i am glad i get to go when i can.
And nyc is so inviting and cosy in november and december. Love it.

Why do I love New York? Because it's where the promise of urban life is fulfilled--and constantly reinvented. Because it's the drawn bowstring of the universe--and it never goes slack.

You can get anything at anytime. No wishing you could find something but, alas, your area doesn't support that...not in New York (I have a craving for a Jamaican veggie patty right now...can't find it here, but there's at least 20 places in Brooklyn open right now with a veggie patty waiting for me).
You don't need a car, and in fact it is discouraged. I recently read a book which made the case NYC is the most environmentally-friendly city in the U.S. due to its density.
For a city its size, it is relatively safe. Especially compared to what it was 15-20 years ago.
The art museums, food, nightlife, etc.

Better question, what's not to like? Except the price of it all...

I love NYC because if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.

Wink When u feel more at home in a city you didn't even grow up in, you know you belong there

Wellllll... for me my love for the city goes a bit deeper than just loving what it has to offer!
I've always had a soft spot for NYC for a lot of reasons. I've lived here since right after h.s., im now 23 and I went from being a jaded new yorker to FEEling like a true new yorker; I experienced a lot, I went to school here, got my first job here, my first apartment, I had my kid here, and so many other great things (and even not so great things) happened for me here. I learned a lot. This is where I truly grew up/became an adult. I love everything about it, good and not so good. I met and made a few of my bffs in NYC. My favorite part about it is the nightlife and the fact that u can get boozed up and not worry about having a DD! Lol.ANYWHO THATS THE END OF MY SAP STORY ABOUT NYC haha
