    As some of you know, I visited my daughter in NYC this past weekend. Here is me impression after 4 days:

    1. I never once felt threatened or in danger in any part of the city that I traveled.
    2. There is a NYC Subway app for the iPhone that is indispensible.
    3. It's called the Big Apple, but everything there is small; bathrooms, restaurants, bars, appartments.
    4. There were no occupiers anywhere to be seen on Wall street.
    5. The subways for the most part were clean, except for one line that I traveled on.
    6. Great Beer everywhere.
    7. Great bakeries with wonderful breads and pastries everywhere.
    8. I can get better pizza here in Florida.
    9. The streets, though not clean, were better than I expected.
    10. New Yorkers are not as rude as I've heard.

    I had a great time when I was there. I'll have to plan another trip soon.

    It's a great place to eat and take a shit. It's a terrible place to reside and pay taxes.

    If you think people in NYC are nice, you might be from Florida.

    :D

    Oh, I wouldn't want to live there, unless I was very rich.

    Ive been to a lot of cities, but not all of them. In my experience, simply from an entertainment and structural perspective, i agree with sallow. However, the more time I spend in cities the more I'd like to move deep into the mountains and avoid people. Because they are dumb and generally suck.

    That would depend on what you are looking for in a city.

    That said, if I was told I had to pick one of the larger cities to live in, I'd choose NYC over the rest. Because of what I'm looking for in a city, I prefer to live in Orlando.

    I think I would agree 100% if you had said: "Best big city in the world."

    I lived in Boston for 18 months, and Chicago for a year. I also live in the mountains of North Carolina for a while. I'm in between you and Sallow. I don't like cities as large as NYC but I don't like the country either. The big cities, especially NYC, are fun to visit.
