I am so sad for you. What a sewer.
Please, stay there, don't emigrate to NJ after a few years, we've got more than enough NY refugees already fouling the state.
It sucks here, just warning you.
try the midwest a few years... then, say that again.
New York is pretty much a nanny state, meaning our governor (who, by the way, likes to bypass the correct legislative process when making new laws) creates laws banning anything and everything he thinks the "common man" is too dumb to be safe around.
