Niggas talking shit about NY even though they visited a couple times with their family. 
You don't understand the hustle here and prolly never will. 


Edit: and yea $1000 is too much for a little studio apartment, but if you live in NYC you're never in your spot other than sleeping and fucking. You're always out doing something...or at least you should be. It's not a city for everyone of course. It's a lot of work and takes a lot of energy away from you, but it's worth it. The convenience to get liquor at anytime at almost anyplace. The people you meet. The parties. The food. The culture. 
I can dig ya point of view. I'm not hating on ny just sayin that the attitude I described is is annoying and arrogant at times.

I live in New York. You can't be a pussy living here, It's a fast pace city, only the strong survive 
I am pretty sure you'd get eaten alive in parts of Africa.
word. see this is a perfect example. motha fucka try growing up in places like china, korea, etc where these kids study 15 hrs a day from elementary to school to high school to make it or to just be middle class. their work weeks are longer than 40hrs. try 60 hrs on average.. What you know bout suicide watch at your place of employment cuz conditions are so bad. 

eat cock bitch nigga. 
The topic is about New York, fuck you get Africa from. You thinking too hard, bitch ass nigga. All of that thought, you put into my post, use that knowledge & go get some pussy for once in ya life
I am pretty sure a fuck boy like you wont survive in Baclaran Paranaque Manila where I grew up. High rate of thieves, holdups in broad day light or pick pockets.  But you wont know that cuz you cant even get out of NY too busy making ends meet.

edit: And from what I heard NYC isnt as bad as how people say it is or as bad as how it was in the late 80's - 90's. Police and hipster ratio is 1:1 so w/e you say right now means nothing to me not unless you lived outside of the 1st world country.

I'm not from NYC, but I've visited a few times and it seems pretty cool, definitely different than Philly. Cigarettes prices are too high, don't really dig that.

NYC has its pros and cons but after living there for a few years I have too say I've found it too be overrated and I can't fathom how anyone finds it too be the best city. Ok it has all kinds of people and culture and things are open late... Is that worth it too pay $1000 a month too live in a shoebox? Never have any privacy or personal space? Surrounded by filth and things that smell like shit? People being prideful of behaving like assholes because its the NYC attitude (get over yourselves you gotta take a long train ride too even get too the tough and scary parts of the city)? Most people don't even have a car there (fuck that shit, I do) but don't even get me started on dealing with public transportation and cabs as your only means of transportation. A lotta people my age come there thinking its like the Hollywood version of New York. If youre trying too make ends meet NYC is a lot of hassle for rewards that quickly become either mundane or simply not worth it.

I have a love hate thing with New York though, that's just the hate part. You meet some interesting ass people you wont meet anywhere else, and you can see and do a lot of shit, its just endless shit. There is something weirdly charming about how the city is so raw but so full of everything imaginable. For me that doesn't make it a great place too live, but a great place to visit. When my lease in Brooklyn is done, unless I am making fat stacks (if youre rich as fuck nyc is a whole different story) I'll head somewhere more beautiful, friendly, economically prosperous, and affordable (what costs 2000 a month in NYC can be had for like 700 in most other cities). NYC might have the most night life and activities, but theres plenty of that shit in other places too.

Edit: The NYC hometown best city in the world attitude is annoying as fuck on people from CT and deep out Long Island, or people who just moved there from other places doing everything they can too be New York as fuck, but on authentic New Yorkers who came up there most of their lives its got some merit, I mean that's how you came up so it is what it is knowhatimsayin? I gotta say though, native New Yorkers tend too think they are so much more experienced and worldly than people from smaller places, but its all a bullshit bubble town mentality, most native New Yorkers don't understand shit about how shit works elsewhere.
I can't front and call born and raised or anything, but I spend a lot of time in New York, mainly staying with my uncle in Brooklyn. I get where you're coming from with the public transportation, which (though very efficient and reliable compared to other cities, especially for the fact that it's accessible virtually anywhere within a 5 block radius) can become very aggravating. And yes, there are many assholes. 

But I think the city appeals to the more sentimental person. The kind of person who will describe the energy, vibes, and heart of the city. I fucking love New York. The diversity is amazing, and I don't just mean racial diversity. There's the skate community, the fashion community, the hip-hop heads, the jazz clubs, the sports fans, and everything in between. When I go to visit family, and wander in the city by myself, I don't feel alone. It's weird.

But I haven't seen someone articulate so well the negative aspects aside from the usual "arrogant people", "dirty environment", or "overpriced living" cliches. Your post was really good.

Can't front either man, public transportation in NYC is better than most cities. Boston's is the worst and I love my home town. I just don't think I can ever get down on public transport as my sole means of getting around, I love driving, the freedom, the power, the comfort, being on my town time with my own personal space and my music blasting, temp where I want it. People front like NYC is hard too drive in, people just get shook by cab drivers who think theyre cowboys, its cake compared too Boston and the parallel parking in NYC is plentiful (unless its late at night) and its usually free if you aren't on main drags. I agree with you on the sentimental tip, I think that sums up the love part of my love hate relationship with NYC.

Center city you see them. The college campuses are crawling with them, Temple and Drexel. It all depends on where you're at. Housing isn't that expensive so it's not too bad.

I wouldn't expect you to understand. Unless you're from NYC or lived there, you really wouldn't understand. 

If you can make it in NYC, you can make it anywhere in the US and most developed countries. I agree with you OP.  Cats who hustled to get out of their third world countries really can make it anywhere...including the wilderness and post apocalyptia. Haha.   

But truthfully, an NYC head really can get it anywhere in the US.  They hustle different and they're used to having to earn and spend big moneya and stretch dollars. So when they move to a spot with a much lower cost of living, they excel.

That said, I took a trip to NYC cuz my wife used to love NYC.  It really has changed so much it pretty much lost that vibe that we both used to love. It used to always be ahead of the curve and fresh and alive and it felt stale.  It's like Bloomberg and outta town hipsters dried out that creative energy and it's mad contrived now.  Hipsters doing too much to pretend like they're native and natives doing too much to stand apart from the hipsters.

I used to live in NYC..hated moving to Jersey back when I was younger but it's actually pretty cool now..being that I have the best of both worlds...I could go to NY anytime I please..it's only a 30min train or car ride, so whenever I wanna rape NY for its food, clothes, concerts and shit Im there...but sometimes its cool to be able to lay low and actually be able to do things like owning a nice car and be able to drive it without paying a 2nd rent at a paid parking lot or have your bumper constantly buttfucked by asshole drivers who try to park minivans in 7 foot spaces, great place to visit/hang out but I wouldn't move back unless I was pulling at least 100k a year or sumn

Yea Huffinton Post and Complex put out lists every year and it's always on them, it's on a few more too. But yea I graduated with kids who went there, and they love it, so it boils down to if you personally like the college. Where'd you end up going?

That's because Buffalo is mad ass b.  Of course they're gonna act like they're better.  I mean, someone from like Columbus Ohio would feel superior.
