What do you like about New York City?
Everything. Even the things I hate about it are things I love about it. It's noisy, dirty, chaotic, diverse and amazing. I could spend all day just watching people or looking at buildings.

What do you dislike about New York City?
It is RIDICULOUSLY expensive. Home ownership is a pipe dream for the vast majority of residents.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?

Live in- Brooklyn, because you get twice the space for the money and can still find true neighborhoods as opposed to homogenized gentrification that is becoming the hallmark of Manhattan.

Hang out in- Manhattan and Brooklyn, most parts. Love the museums, the parks, the

How expensive is it?
Beyond expensive. This is a city for the very rich.

Is it safe? Yup.

How is the weather?
Summer is hell. It's sweltering and the subways smell like a huge ripe armpit. You're drenched in sweat ten seconds after you leave the house. Spring and fall are gorgeous. Winter is kind of a let down lately thanks to global warming. It doesn't really get particularly cold in the winter, nor is there much in the way of snowfall. I'll take winter in NYC over summer in NYC ANY day.
Additional thoughts?

What do you like about New York City? It's all packed together, it's easy to get around, the way people dress up "conservative", the nice restaurants...etc.
What do you dislike about New York City? Everything is so small, hotel rooms are very small, bathrooms are too small, traffic sacks, pollution, no green and no sun. Too many people too close. People are rude.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Central Park, Central Terminal, Port.
How expensive is it? Very.
Is it safe? OK in crowded areas, but dangerous in the allies and dark streets.
How is the weather? snow and cold in the winter and too hot in the summer.
Additional thoughts? It's a nice city and easy to get around, quite dirty overall, but nice, the subway is great (bit dirty) but works very well. A very nice museums and theaters but not as intellectual as I expected (a bit overrated in this way).
