    I like New Yorkers because they're usually

    direct and honest. They don't waste your time by sugar coating any issue. I live in Texas and everyone is so nice here. But what takes 20 minutes in Texas takes 5 minutes in New York because New Yorkers just get to the point much faster.

    Born and Raised New Yorker Who Had To Become Bi-coastal.

    Why We Are The Way We Are

    New Yorkers have the reputation of being rude.I think that people in New York are not necessarily rude, but they just mind their own business and are in a hurry.  For instance, right now you can't even walk down Fifth Avenue because there are SO MANY tourists. I work on...

    New Yorkers Aren't Rude. You Are, (but it's not what you think from this title ;)

    And I mean that title with the utmost of respect. I've been a denizen of this fair(ly crappy) city my entire life, in one way or another. I spent some time in LA during college, but don't worry, I got over it. The one thing, though, that I've consistently heard from around...

    Why New York Is Better Than Texas

    What makes NY better than TX to me? Tampons are allowed into our state capitol while guns are not.  Remember, guns kill people, tampons don’t. We don’t proclaim to be “pro-life” and then execute people (Perry recently presided over the state’s 500th execution...

    Born And Raised New Yorker
