Default It's the capital of the known universe

You can never entirely beat roaches, but you can kind of fight them to a draw.

There's still affordable housing in the Bronx. But, leave your middle class attitudes at home - it ain't Winesberg Ohio.

I'll never live anywhere else.

I'm a native-born Brooklynite, and I can't stand cockroaches either. But damned if I'd let them chase me away from the city! By all means, come to New York.

oh I'm sure London and Tokyo are great, but i meant cities in US that are similar to New York City. Kind of like a "mini new york" where nightlife is great, safe, you don't need car, known as a 'walking city', etc...

Have you seen the roaches in warm climates, like Florida? They are BIG, and the palmetto one flies into your face!!!!! New York roaches are small, but they scattered around very fast, at the same beat as New Yorkers!!
