Tokyo is filled with crime? Really? What part are you exactly talking about...it is nothing like it is in the US unless this has somehow escaped me over the years...

I think of it as you don't realize what you don't have until you see it on another country. I felt the same way about home after being in Japan. Their cities were cleaner, the transit was much better and the people were nicer. I come home to rude people pushing their way onto the E train, that train now feeling much smaller to me than when I left.

It's because they got a lot of spare nooses there, and life sucks there. A clear combination.

Change your perspective for a second.

Compressed cities like those are like a huge smoking room. Walking on a somewhat busy street is pretty much the same as having someone blow smoke on your face. The grass next to busy roads tend to be black if it doesn't rain for a while.

I can't say I'm interested in it at all. Europe is the destination for me.

I think its mostly new yorkers who are obsessed with nyc, I dislike talking to some new yorkers because they think their city is the best, its important, but its not the best nor is my city. I don't know what the best city is though.

I love hearing other people's stories. I have to say that New York is reverting back to how it was in the 80's and for anyone who knows what that means it is not a good thing. Sure they keep the touristy and rich people parts nice but for the rest of us they could not care less. Also they need to get rid of the stop and frisk crap. I have seen cops willfully ignore real crimes taking place right in front of them, then turn around and harass young guys just walking home and minding there own business.

I recall back in the day having to jaywalk to the other side of the street to avoid the potential of interacting with derelicts 3/4 block away. The characters with the windshield squeegees at street corners didn't appear until the '80's. Dark alleys were negotiable only in numbers, not for the faint of heart individually unless you put on your "chip on your shoulder" face, hands in jacket pocket (handgun?). To park a car one had to resort to bribing the guard for apartment level garage parking (when the doctors or lawyers were over in the Hamptons or Catskills for the weekend and a space was vacant) if there was no slot on the street upwards to 4 blocks away.......don't miss this at all.

If a person has family there or on Jersey side where one can stay for a few days NYC might be enjoyable?? Otherwise, diss this city. Go to Niagara Falls instead.

The arrogance of NYC'ers hasn't changed, I see. They only come down to earth when Con Ed has a blackout.
