    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.

    What do you like about New York City?
    You can get direct answers from people. You can get lost, go out on a street corner and proclaim all that you believe, walk round to the next street and have a new slate. If you believe in anything based on probablitiy- the numbers work for you. Privacy, anonyminity, opportunity. International & everything is here and convenient.
    What do you dislike about New York City? STRESSFULL. Time moves ridiculously past. It's UGLY (architectually) every part basically looks the same. Expensive. People look like robots and machines sometimes. Subways are suffocating. No indoor smoking. Too competitive.
    What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? I really don't like the city all that much,
    How expensive is it? Too too expensive.
    Is it safe? Mostly. The reputuation is primarily from the past; some parts of brooklyn & the bronx.
    How is the weather? Cold & long winters, not enough daylight. Rest of the year- nice.
    Additional thoughts?
    I've got to get out of here! Ny is not my home.
