I wouldn't cross the border for a hundred buck cold, tax-free cash... Desi men seem to love New York. I am still left wondering why....

its just majestic - its got an attitude- its got a life and its got a buzz - although i cant live their for more than five years but those would be five fast paced years. I like the citys culture - its acceptance of everyone, its pace, its stone-cold strictly business attitude - from the southern tip of manhattan to ferry docks of long island you can feel that people are out there to make difference and put their life to use in the way they choose.

spell checked version:

Erm.... i protest... i've been there, a few times in the past and i did not feel that way for a moment... i really don't think everyone in new york is out there to make a difference...I think new york is a city like any other.. the only difference is the way YOU feel when you are there... all this hoopla about New York... Bah! Sex in the city has done something for new york.... including billy joel and all of the rest of the faces america puts on and takes off... When was the last time you went to the Pakistani embassy in New York? When exactly did it appear as though they were there to make a difference?

Bah Bah Bah... down with the infidels!

I'm just fed up with folks making it sound as though it's utopia... it's just another city, except it's giant and overpopulated. I hated every moment i was there, i felt like i couldn't breathe. Something about it totally creeps me out.

well, you know what they say - to each his own - having lived in windsor and toronto, which are quite nice cities to live in, the only place in north america that made me feel like its a different place was NY - I did pass the Pakistani embassy on 5th ave and loved the sight of the "sabz hilali parcham" waving wildly in wind but i was sure, that much like the other areas of Pakistani buearaucracy, this embassy would be suffering from a lack of vision too.
When I said make a difference, I was referring to an individual aspect and not a collective one. People are selfish, fair enough, but they do have a drive to make things better for themselves.
