    Never Been To The City

    I am originally from upstate NY. Yes, there is country in the state of NY. I say that with humor because one day I was wearing a shirt that said " I love NY" and a stranger walked up to me and asked me why would I love Ny. This was years ago about the time that vigilante incident...

    I'm From New York. No, Not The City!

    I'm from upstate New York originally. Best place anyone could ever live. The seasons are beautiful and the weather, although sometimes truly frigid, is perfect. I live in Maryland now, but because I love the weather up north I go to college in Pennsylvania.  The irony...

    Love/hate Relationship With The Big Apple

    I was born and raised in Queens, NY. When I was a child, there was nothing more exciting than my parents taking me into the city for whatever reason. When I was a teenager and in my early twenties, it was thrilling to go to Manhattan and wander aimlessly, exploring for hours on...

    I Didn't Start Out Here....

    ...but I settled in central New York 8 years ago (come November). I grew up in North Jersey and hated the crowds and the pollution, so when I had the chance I beat feet and ended up in Auburn NY. *Now* I can say I am from New York! My circle of friends is currently rather small...

    Gah I Hate New York

    High taxes, corrupted government at the state level, I mean it's not bad state, it just has some bad people governing it.  Doesn't help that where I live there's very little to do. Also I've been to NYC probably around 10 times in my life. After like the 6th or...

    Lower Manhattan, The Upper West Side

    I lived in NYC until I was 30 years old. I loved it. I thrived on it. I wasn't crazy about Stuyvesant Town, where we lived for my first few years, but I adored living in the West Village (corner of MacDougall and Waverly, for those of you who know the city). After I moved...

    grew up in south eastern NY, and now live in CT. New Englanders are a bit more laid back. Everything doesn't have to be done yesterday.

    Always A New Yorker

    but I also hate it. People can be shrewd and horrible to you. But there's also kindness and so much caring and helpfulness in New York City, and I miss the twin towers more than anyone could know

    I am NOT from New York,

    but I'm obsessed and in love with the city and everything it has to offer. I'm always here! Whether upstate or the city. The hustling, bustling, rush-hour, and the people in constant motion drives me. To me, this is home.
