I kind of agree, but I think that the crazy people should be institutionalized, which is a very left wing, pro government view.

I was born in NYC lived here for 23 years, I lived through 9/11, I could care about the tourists, they don’t have to deal with it for a long time. People visit Mexico, and love it, but it’s still a second world country.
I was born in New York City and am back there a total of 6-8 weeks every year visting family and for business. Like any large city of 7+ million people, it's got its issues, crime, drug abuse and poverty etc. Show me any major city that size that doesn't have any of those problems. But it also has lots of great neighborhoods and culture and restaurants and sports and museums etc. It's also a lot cleaner than it was 20 years ago and also a lot safer. It's now consistently ranked in the top 10-20 safest large cities in the world. Your characterization of it was ridiculously unbalanced, inaccurate and quite frankly idiotic. But like anyone else, if you don't like it, leave if you haven't already.
Pretty much any city I’ve been to is cleaner, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago, all of the big Canadian, and European cities are cleaner. I’m sure the murder rate is higher in most cities though. It’s a stereotypical American city, and I’m trying to leave, who would want to live here? Sorry you had to be born in NYC also.
Don't project your ridiculous views onto me dude. I'm happy I was born and grew up there and enjoy getting back there as much as I do. If you think Chicago is cleaner, visit the south side. If you think L. A. is, go downtown, San Francisco?, visit the Tenderloin. Miami? Go to Overtown or Liberty City. These comments confirm for me your judgment is horribly skewed and terribly subjective perhaps due to your inability to "make it" in New York and carve out a decent standard of living there and I will admit, it's not a cheap place to live. It's not for everyone so leave if you don't like it but there are millions of people who've lived their whole lives there and would have wanted to live nowhere else and millions of others who don't live there for whom living in New York is their dream..
I’ve been to those neighborhoods. Fucking skid row, and the tenderloin, is what like all of NYC looks like.
The south side of Chicago isn’t really that urban, it’s like abandoned houses, reminds me of Detroit. It’s not like NYC at all.
Skid row and the tenderloin is not what all of NYC looks like. That's just a remarkablly ridiculous and immature comment. If you hate New York City so much, pack your bags and get the hell out. You won't be missed.
Of Manhattan especially the mass transit centers.
The Financial District, Chinatown, Little Italy, Tribeca, SOHO, NOHO, Greenwich Village, The FlatIron District, Chelsea, Murray Hill, Midtown, the Theater District, 59th Street, Hell's Kitchen, Lincoln Center, The Upper West Side, The Upper East Side, 5th Avenue, Park Avenue, Lexington Avenue, Madison Avenue, 3rd Avenue, Inwood, Washington Heights... all those areas look like Skid Row or the tenderloin to you? Dude, stop making a complete fool of yourself. It's not a good look.
I’ve seen it
