My mate Javier and his fam live in Queens, he works in the City and we have an open invite but we've never taken him up on it yet. He's been asking us to go over since 2003 but NY doesnt appeal to me to be honest.

 

I've been to New York a few times and it's just like any other big city here in North America. The shopping is great and parts of the city are beautiful, but there are a lot of dumpy areas. People make a big deal of living there, why I have no idea. If I had my choice I'd take LA over New York any day.

I had to reread this about five times before I realised you WEREN'T saying your friend has a farm in Queens. :lol

 

New York is London with newer, bigger buildings, cheaper stuff, nicer people and more to do that doesn't involve getting drunk. I'm a city boy, and I fall apart in any sort of suburban setting out of boredom, but, if you like cities, it's probably the best in the world, if you don't like big cities, there's absolutely nothing for you here.

 

People from this site (who I like) are more then welcome if they don't mind sleeping on the floor. Just give me a lot of warning ahead of time obviously.

I HATE London, I hate everything about it. That has alot to do with my interest in visiting NY being super low. I've been to the states a bunch of times and like the lifestyle in Miami. I wouldnt mind trying Vegas eventually.

Oh yeah, if you don't like London, you'd hate New York.

 

I found Vegas a let down. I was expecting the gateway to hell, but it's only "Sin City" by America's conservative standards. By European standards, it's really nothing special. I don't know though, I went when I was 17, so I couldn't drink and had to be careful about gambling, because I wasn't legally supposed and stuff. It's probably a lot more fun when you can actually legally do anything. It's a very, very small place though. All the casinos and stuff is literally just two streets.

Really? Do you have any idea what it was? I'd genuinely be interested, because, coming from London, I feel very, very at home in New York. Far more than I have anywhere else. I find things "work the same" socially in New York as they do in London if that makes sense.

 

The only difference I can think of is that London is a lot... angrier. I find London much more violent and aggressive.

 

You lived on the Upper East Side in New York didn't you? Where did you live in London?

I lived in Richmond and for a short time in Battersea. And in New York between 71st and 72nd...

 

I totally agree that London is more aggressive, and angry. I would walk home to my apartment when in New York from Grand Central, often at 2-3am and can say I always felt safe whereas in London, you always have that feeling someone is watching you. And if you did come across someone, there was always a warmth, where I feel in London, if you dare make eye contact at them, there is a likelyhood you could be challenged!!

 

I'm not sure what it is about New York. It sounds silly but even the grid system, everywhere seems close and compacted and not far to walk, which I think gives the place a community spirit, which is reinforced by the fact New York is a 24 hour city, which when I used to come back to England with American friends cant be said to be the same in London.

 

I understand what your saying about the social aspect, but I still think culturally, maybe its America in general, there is a sense of work hard, playhard lifestyle, which apart from around Canary Wharf, I havent seen anywhere else....
