You ain't seen nothing yet b*tch. The Mayor is cutting out the next 5 police academy classes. Can't afford them because they have to take care of all of the Illegal aliens. They are also cutting universal pre K but keeping kids out of the NYC school system is probably a good thing. Try San Francisco, I heard they cleaned the joint up so Joe Biden could get pimp slapped by a commie.
Lol. Okay, put your money where your mouth is. Go park your car in New York City, but don’t lock it. Then go park your (new) car (cus the last one got stolen) anywhere in Alabama leave it unlocked. Then go back and get it a week later.
if you’re not comfortable leaving your car unlocked in NYC, then shut it.
Do we really have to go through this again? Eventually , someone will point out which group commits the overwhelming majority of the crimes in both New York City, and Alabama. Then liberals will scream racism and blame it on slavery. Thread over.
I was born and raised in NYC. Yes it’s the greatest city in the world for many reasons but… after moving out and getting a taste of peace and quiet and clean streets minus the crazies and smell of garbage and urine, and the constant noise, you couldn’t pay me enough to go back and live there. Visiting occasionally for an event is plenty.
Five cities with the highest predicted GDP New York New York City is said to be the largest city in terms of GDP. For 2035, according to the World Economic Forum, its estimated GDP is $2.5trn. Its economy is powered by the finance, media and technology industries, as well as its diverse population. New York is also one of the most visited cities in the world, and this influx of visitors helps to boost its economy.

Any time someone moves to NYC and complains, it's always some small town simpleton who moves into, like, the financial district and has no idea how to function outside of their suburban lifestyle.
I lived in the city for many years. It was fantastic. I had incredible access to food and groceries in my neighborhood, which was important to me as I cook (and eat!) a lot. My rent was reasonable as I lived well outside of Manhattan. My neighborhood was extremely safe — I felt safer there at 3am than I'd ever feel around the financial district at 3am. I had nice parks nearby for running and walking, and I was far enough out that the trains and busses were never crowded when I got on.
I watched many people from my HS move there after college and rent the most insane micro apartments in the worst neighborhoods. They'd exclusively shop at something like Trader Joe's in Union Square. They'd complain and complain and then leave in a year or two without ever actually exploring anything.
This is a long-winded way of saying it doesn't produce anything at all. It's just a gathering of white-collar executives, capitalists, propagandists, and tour operators. They mostly take their cut from things made elsewhere. The only thing "made in NYC" is that ephemeral dollar amount.
This is a classic feature of all major port cities. LA is the same way. The real core of the economy is the transport, nothing else about it is worth half the dead rats in the Bronx.
The life you can live in a less densely populated area is way better. I believe most of the people living in cities have always lived in those cities and don't know that there are other options. I grew up in a small town, currently live in a top 10 populated city in the US, and I'm greatly looking forward to moving away again. I moved here for career opportunities, but now I work remotely 100% of the time and there is no need to stay here. Just saving up for a couple more years so that I don't need as much of a loan at these high interest rates. Hopefully I can't even see my neighbors in my next house.
funny enough, I mostly shop at Trader Joe's/Whole Foods because they're actually the cheapest grocery stores in my area (compared to ripoff bodegas, D'Agostinos, Gristedes, Fairway, etc.)
The complaint about not being able to have a car is pretty silly. Majority of NYC residents don't own a car. Part of why I live here is because I don't need one. Yes, my rent is insanely high for the square footage I get, but it's somewhat offset by having no car payment, insurance, gas, tolls, etc, which come to high hundreds if not low thousands for many suburbanites.
The subway can be annoying, but it's efficient on weekdays, and has been much less crowded during rush hour since the pandemic. I rarely take it anyways, since I get to run commute or citi bike (plentiful bikes and docks, super fun way to get around the city for $200/year) through Central Park. Sure beats sitting in rush hour traffic looking at strip mall architecture every day. Phenomenal way to build Z1 volume too, suburbanites are really missing out.
