That little island with the tall buildings is a nice place to visit. It has great museums, bookstores, liquor stores, and a couple of good universities. Some nice restaurants as well. so it is very important to keep that little island.

However, it is surrounded by crowded places where nothing interesting happens. some parts of them are important, like the airports. But we could do without all that other stuff.

I'm sure the residents could be put to some use. They could be retrained and taught to speak American, so they don't embarrass themselves when asking for a soda and receiving sparkling water, or honking their horns all the time.

More than once I've thought that if maybe half the people in New York disappeared somehow, it wouldn't be much of a loss.

Well in regards to Americans, when you need to fight a war they tend to arrive somewhat late to the party...
A Jew without good middos is simply incomplete...

Every age is modern to those that live in it

How do you feel when there's no sun? And how will you be when rain clouds come and pull you down again?

Mmmmm, whatcha say?

On the plus side the amount of arrogance in America would decrease by at least 20% immediately.

The second article was great.
The world has too many stupid people who are full of confidence, and smart people who are full of self-doubt.

And if California disappeared one day the percentage of shallow ditziness would decrease by at least 50%.

Because we all know that NY girls are intelligent, deep and sophisticated beyond their years....

Well Long Island should be an honorary extension of Jersey, but other than that yes.

Being serious for a moment though, there's a reason these stereotypes exist. I deal with customers all around the country and it's amazing how often I can tell where they're from as soon as they open their mouth - and it's not necessarily because of an accent as much as their attitude and how they present themselves.
