I think I WOULD agree but the only time I visited I was there for 6 hours and didn't see anything but the Museum of Sex. Heh.

I will mention that the last paragraph of that article really struck a note with me and I'm not even sure why. It's definitely my favorite SexIs piece to date.

I've never been to New York. Probably never will go there either. But I've been to Chicago thousands of times. Does that count? lol

I've lived in Chicago, so to some degree at least I am used to dealing with big cities. I am used to crowds, and fighting your way through downtown streets, and paying way too much for everything.

But to me, New York was the worst of Chicago multiplied by 100, maybe 1,000. I felt suffocated there. I only spent a grand total of 1 day there and was happy to put it behind me.

I don't understand how anyone can vacation there and find it relaxing. And I certainly don't understand how anyone can put up with living there. I think I would have to end up on a ton of anti-depressants and anti-anxiety pills to be able to live there, even for a short amount of time.

So, for me New York didn't live up to the hype, and I have no desire to go back. But maybe if I was really rich I would see it differently. I think New York is definitely a playground for the rich, and when it comes to vacations they tend to enjoy it immensely.

I've never been and that fact frustrates me to no end. It's definitely on my bucket list. And is such a big deal that M's coworkers are talking about sending me there with their wives, who I've never met, the next time they go.

Let me tell ya... THAT sounds like fun. /sarcasm

None of the above.

I used to live in New York, and it still holds a special place in my heart for many reasons. I love the fast days, the walking to get places, the romance of the shitty streets. People call New Yorkers assholes and jerks a lot, but that's what I'm used to, it's part of what makes me who I am. To me, it's beautiful, and it's home. As I've gotten older, though, I've preferred comfort and isolation. New York still, however, is my true home.

You cannot understand the true beauty of New York in just visiting. It's a place you have to live for many years to understand.

I wanted to go to NYC and LA before I turned 30...I missed the deadline. Then again, I wanted to see every roadside rest stop in MI before I was 21...missed that one too.

I'm a city person, despite growing up in the country. I really wanna go!

I stayed a week in NYC a few years ago, and I think Sir's right. You have to live there to really get it. All I could think of was how expensive everything was and how unwilling I was to walk anywhere alone. In fact, it reminded me of the big cities of China that I've been to. Lots of people. Lots of noise. Lots of stuff to do. It was exciting, but not a place I'd want to stay in for more than a week or two.

J and I just came back from NYC. Living in Nashville and hearing people call this a city makes me cry a little. I am from L.A. and J is from San Diego, so bigger cities are our cup of tea. The only thing in NYC that killed me was the need to carry cash, a Cali girl has nowhere to keep cash, so I never carry it (yeah, that changed in a quick hour up in NY). I am used to just handing my card over and saying charge.

NYC comes in second only Boston, a city I am deeply in love with. Why? Umm, historical significance and the strong resemblance to San Fransisco.

I would kill to move up there one day.

You know what I discovered? It isn't the New Yorkers (they call y'all Yankees here...I just smile when they call me one), it's the tourists. I get why the locals can be rude (being from LA does that to you)...you have places to be and you can't be slowed down because some couple wants their photo taken in front of a sign.

So basically I see it as tourists are rude, and locals have bills to pay. It's like home to me

I never heard of a Museum of Sex before...

Now I'm curious and I want to go.

The last time I was there, giant Alien posters were all over for the opening of the movie, and my parents mistakenly took us down 42nd street, which at the time was not the most desirable place to go

I'd love to go back sometime, though.

New York to a native is so different...

New York is warm and inviting, like those adorable shoes from three years ago that are kind of grubby now but who cares because they make you feel like floating.

But it's also like those trashy shoes that pinch every damn inch of your feet but but you don't have any other shoes to wear and it's unsanitary to walk home barefoot.

New York is what you want it to be, a lot of the time. I've been here 21 years and I've never been mugged or carjacked. I've felt unsafe in subways or on streets, sure, but I've felt a lot less saw in Nebraska than I ever do in New York. New Yorkers don't hate tourists (come! Bring your money to our city! Spend!) but we LIVE here. The trashcans you want to take a photo of? I just want to throw my gum out.

I worked in the empire state building last year and it was a giant pain in the ass trying to get past a mob of tourists looking bemused in the middle of the sidewalk when the morning commute ran long so you're already late. We're not mean, we just have places we'd rather be than stuck behind people who are standing still.

I love it there. I'd move there if I could afford it and the boyfriend would agree.

What a whiner. He doesn't seem built for NYC. It takes a special breed to live there.

I went to NYC for an extended weekend and I really really enjoyed myself. I was in Manhattan and besides the hotel not being all that great on a photographers budget I had an amazing time. I took over 8 thousand photos. Everything from buildings, to people, to the broken statues in courtyards had intense emotion and it all screamed to be captured on film.

At first I was terrified to be out by myself with my camera equipment thinking I'd get mugged but that went away after my initial few hours wondering around. One New Yorker came up to me and offered the advice that it didn't matter what I was carrying as long as I don't stare at the height of the buildings cuz that was what marked tourists and easy targets. Have no clue why the guy even came up to me but I figured it was sound advice and stopped doing it lol Was also questioned by the police when I was photographing not one but two of the bridges. There's a ton of bridges and I guess after 911 they see people getting info on bridge structure a threat to safety. Fact that I'm a photographer in love with the emotions in architecture didn't phase them any. Told me to move on immediately so I didn't bother doing anymore bridges after that.

There are some awesome cab drivers in NYC too. They get the shitty end of the stick in movies and on tv but damn they pretty cool and they know everywhere! Had one freak out that I was actually going to go into Central Park with my equipment in the dark. He ended up parking the cab and walking with me - dude was packing and I was like where's the threat? But he was a sweet ol teddy bear that endured my stopping and going all over the city half the day and all the evening. Even stopped in the middle of the financial district (think that's what it's called) so I could get pics of that bull in the middle of the road lol He really had his hands full cuz I'd just sit on the window and lean on the roof to get photos of street life as we were driving along - weren't going very fast but he kept fussing at me. And God helped him deal with me and my friends as we got together for a night out on the town lol He got an awesome tip though so all was good.

I really liked the people in New York. They were real. The city its self was a lot cleaner then I expected and much nicer then Baltimore or DC. There was character in the angles and designs of architecture and in the people. I loved it but loved getting home to Hubby and the kids too. Wouldn't want to live there either. Gotta have my woods and seclusion. Can't imagine trying to sleep every night with that much noise all the time. That would drive me insane!

I have never been there. I want to visit at least once. But I could never live there. I hate big cities like that. I have spent alot of time in Tokyo, and I hate it after the first couple of days. I like smaller cities In the Northwest. Lost of trees and mountians, rivers, beachs, ect..
