New Orleans, LA


re:
I'm disgusted & angry with myself for com - 12/21/2019
new york is alot more segregated. you have black neighborhoods, white neighborhoods. you go to the queens center mall, and you see asians with asians, spanish with spanish, whites with whites. at least in new orleans, it looks like the blacks, and whites mingle with one another. ny also has alot of those archie bunker types. alot of italian/irish american new yorkers are more racist than any anglo redneck ive seen

New York, NY

Biggest wasted opportunity in the USA - 12/21/2019
you forgot to mention how people often have to park several blocks away from their house. 300-400 meters

North New Hyde Park, NY


not where i would want to live. - 12/21/2019
the people here are not very nice, or friendly. alot of criminals and thugs living here. materialism is rampant. it;s also expensive. youre looking at 600k for an avg looking house that you can get elsewhere in america for 300k. the weather is bad. too cold in the winter, and in the summer, just hot, wet, and humid. you can only really go out and do things in may, and october. on the other hand, its a clean town. not too dirty. they say the school district is good, but it really isnt. talk to some of the students, and youll find out. theres a couple of good restraunts in town, but not too many. there arent alot of good jobs in nhp thats why alot of people commute into the city, but traffic is real bad, and youre looking at spending close to 2hrs to get into the city.

New Orleans, LA


not bad - 12/21/2019
alright well, i dont know the city well, but here are some of my impressions. i had just come from ny, so i was used to people being very rude, so needless to say, new orleans seemed friendly. people greeted you, and generally are helpful. again, coming from ny, it was heavily segregated. white people socialized with whites, and blacks with blacks, but in new orleans, it seemed that blacks, and white associated with one another. you also get better bargains in new orleans. you can get a bufet on weekday lunches for only $10, but in ny, you only get a steak sandwich for that price, and not even a good one. the one major disdvantage nola has is that it is too hot, and wet. hotels too. in nola you get big nice rooms, whereas in ny you get small old rooms for $100. the downtown new orleans area seems to have a lot of thugs standing on the street, maybe even more than ny. when i saw that, it reminded me of ny.

new pork city - 12/21/2019
NY's always been rubbish. It was rubbish 30 years ago, and it;s rubbish now. I am not a huge fan of NY or it's surrounding suburbs. It's where being mean is the norm. If someone's nice to you, you start asking yourself, why's this person being nice. Does he have an alterior motive? It;s like the worst people from all over the world all decided they would move to NY. The people of NY are what makes the area so bad. New Yorkers are a bunch of savages. I injured my foot once, and took the elevator in the subway, and a crazed New Yorker with a heavy New York accent was harasing me about not being old or in a wheel chair. Aparently to them, only permanently disabled, or seniors can take the elevator. Another crazed New Yorker kept banging on the door of the bathroom in a medical building. And when I didn't open the door for him, he became very triggered. My first impression of New Yorkers is that they are greedy, and selfish. Not all, but that's the impression they give me when compared with other states (outside of the northeast). The entire northeast gives me bad vibes. I include the tristate area because alot of the people who live there are actually former residents of NYC, so they're basically the same crowd of people. You got all these people around you but so what? No one trusts each other. You meet more people in 1 week in Alabama than you do in a year in NY. A lot of these people who like NY actually have very strange priorities. Many of them think that because they can make a lot of money in NY, they can tolerate, or accept all the bad people, but that's something I can't overlook. Making money in exchange for a bad environment is not worth it. NY drivers there are amongst the worst. You try to signal for a lane change. Instead of slowing down, they speed up so you can't get into the lane. There's alot of traffic in NY. If you try traveling on the 278 in Brooklyn, you can forget about it. There's traffic jams there even on Sunday! You;re looking at 1hr travel time for under 10 miles at any given time during the weekdays. The race relations are bad. The tristate area is very segregated. If you go into some of the malls like Queens center, you;ll notice that whites are with whites, spanish with spanish, etc. NY also seems much more racist than the south. NY is too expensive. You're looking at living at only the ghettos of Queens if you have a million dollars. That;s right. $1.3 mil in some dodgy neighborhood in Queens. Another thing I noticed about NY is that you wouldn't necesarily want to raise your kids there. There's limited space for kids to do things, and honestly, New Yorkers do not seem to trust each other. Who would want their kids to grow up in that kind of environment? I don;t know what it;s like now, but back in the 90s, kids were carrying weapons to protect themselves, even in the NY burbs. Another problem I have with NY is that many people don't speak English, which creates a bit of distance between people because they don't share a common language, or culture. It seems like there are more foreigners than anything else. I can't remember the last time I saw an American in most NY suburbs. The ones who are American are usually short term residents. A lot of people talk about NY's multiculturalism as a good thing, but it can also be a bad thing. When you got people speaking their languages, it creates divisions, and barriers. You can live in many parts of NY and never know your neighbor. People keep to themselves. Worst of all, people are scared of each other. In Manhattan, you got a lot of vultures from all around the world and country, so these people are really suspicious of each other because they are scammers, and scammers are careful with who they talk to, that's why you see New Yorkers usually keep to themselves. People move to NY for several reasons. 1) you're a scammer, and you want to hustle people. 2) you're a foreigner and want to be close to your countrymen. 3) some fools see NY on tv and think it's cool, or read about it in a magazine. If you're not a scammer, or foreigner, then there's very little reason to be in NY. It's no wonder so many NYers are moving to Florida. For most people, there's just no point being there. The weather is garbage too, especially in the winter, but summers suck too. It's hot, humid, and wet. Transportation is also garbage. It takes nearly an hour just to travel a couple of miles, something that would take 10 minutes if you were in South Carolina. Honestly, the only good thing about NY is that the cops don't really hassle you for little things, but then that also becomes a problem because people just break the law constantly, and you can see that by how people are always double parked. It's also a very noisy city. People honking their horns all the time. Drunk people coming home at night, yelling on the street. Dogs barking. It;'s true what some people say about NY benefits. They are good, but is it worth it to live in NY just for the benefits? I would live just about anywhere except NY. I will even settle for 3 world countries, at least the people there are nice, and things are cheap. For all the people who talk about there being a lot to do. While that may be true, sometimes, it just doesn't work out. Take for example the Halloween parade, and Thanksgiving day parade. Looks great on paper right? Wrong. All streets are sealed off, so you are stuck in 1 place the whole time, whereas in other states, you can walk around most parades freely. In other words, you can find a better viewing position, whereas you can't in NY. If you go to the Thanksgiving day parade, you better show up early, real early, otherwise you won't get a good position. Compare this to other states, and you can show up at any time, and get a good position. You want good seats for a show, try paying $350 for decent seats at the radio city xmas spectacular. What you get in TX for $10 tacos, spageti, apple pie, apple cobbler, banana peach pie, mash potatos gravy, salad, pizza, etc. All you can eat buffet. What you get in NY for $10, a steak sandwich. Some people say that NY is only good for a vacation. I'd say it's not even good for that. For $100, you get a real nice hotel suite in Texas. For $100 in NY, you can't even get a motel 6. Whether you're a tourist, renter, or home owner, it aint going to work, it just aint. 1 bedrooms in midtown are going for over $3000. A lot of people say that NY is great for culture, and the arts, so before you even think about moving to NY, ask yourself this, do you even go to museums in your hometown, if the answer is no, then why move to NY? If you didn't go to museums back home, then you probably aint going to in NY, and if arts, and culture is NYs main attraction, then it's pointless. Parking is a problem, you're looking at parking in the ghetto for $8.50 for 2hrs. In the city, $13 for 2hrs, and that's only after 6pm. You can't even park there during business hours even if you wanted to pay $13. Can you imagine going to see your doctor, and paying $8.50 each time. That's what you got to deal with in NY.

re:
only for the rich and snobbish
- 12/21/2019
You didn't say anything about your weather requirements. There's lots of good places all over, but the weather just isn't ever all that nice. The places with nice weather such as CA also have some of the same problems that you described. In any case, I would recomend getting out of the northeast altogether, because it seems like the meanest part of the country. Stay away from the rich neighborhoods, and neighborhoods that look too nice. That's where alot of the exploitative people hang around.

re:
making a move...
- 12/21/2019
My advice to you? Don't move everything at once. Give it a month first, and see how it goes. I'm talking about just buying some used furniture maybe, or even getting a furnished apt so you don't have to buy any furniture. Most people, especially from TX will want to leave soon. Do it in Oct, or May, the nicest months.
