I wonder if there are some people lived in NYC and cities in CA.I'm just doing a research here. This is not about which place is the best. I just wanna see some difference bewteen NYC and cities in CA.

Since NYC is crowd and people use more publics transportaions, so it is normal for people to being around strangers on their daily lives. Many people say Newyorkers are always busy and in a rush, but that's only one aspect about people in NYC. In general, Do you like the distance between people in NYC? Do you think people are friendly? Do you think people are stressful and don't wanna bothered by others?

I think the distance between people should be closer in NYC and it can be easiler for people to have a social life there.

Thank you for your response.

Nyc is very dense and highly populated compared to any city in CA. The only city that comes close to NYC in style, culture, densitty, economics is probably SF. LA is sprawlish and significantly bigger than NYC in size. LA is not so dense.

The stress of taking the subway in New York is nothing compared with the stress of driving in LA. Social patterns are very different as well. New Yorkers think nothing of meeting a friend for a drink or a bite to eat after work—because it’s so easy and affordable with the subway. We stay out later because we don’t have to worry about drinking and driving. In LA meeting friends for coffee can be a huge and comparatively expensive production when you factor in travel time plus gas, parking, and general aggravation. My friends who have moved to LA say the thing they miss most the ease of social interaction.

If anyone got any closer to me on a crowded #6 train they would need to revise Einstein's theories of space and time.
When I have a purse in my gut, an elbow in my back, and something suspicious pressing against my ass, that's more than close enough.

Definitely depends on the individual. I've been in NY all 31 years of my life & I can't take the lack of personal space anymore. On platforms, trains and sidewalks. Can't wait to have my bubble not invaded. I actually loved driving around LA on my visits and can't to expeience it as a resident. Just my 2 cents

"LA is a great big highway,
Put a dollar down and buy a car.
In a week maybe two they'll make you a star.
Weeks turn into years
and all the stars that never were
are parking cars and pumping gas."

Until the federal stimulus stops. Then it will play catch up with the rest of the country...FAST.

Remember 25 years ago when Japan was king and downtown Tokyo real estate was quoted by the square INCH? And then the bubble burst, and stayed burst for decades.
New York City is on federal life support.

Tying together dependence on a stock market bubble, a real estate bubble, and a student loan bubble is not good economics becasue we have seen what happens when a bubble does what bubbles MUST do...burst.
How long federal support will continue for the city's few industries is anyone's guess but it seems the Fed is too frightened to find out.
