The Best Part of Living in NYC
For me, the best part of NYC is definitely the people. No matter what you may have heard, New Yorkers are the greatest people on earth.
The diversity - of people, cultures and food - is the best part.
I moved to NYC six years ago to embark on a new journey. I wanted to escape from the small town life and I came to NYC with big dreams. The best part about living here is all the excitement, the culture, the never ending possibilities and things to do.
I have lived in NYC for 8+ years. I would say the best part about living here in NYC is that there is always something going on. Every weekend there is a new exhibit at a museum or fair or farmer's market to check out.
I have lived in NYC, on and off my entire life. I was born in Brooklyn, went to college in Queens, before eventually moving to Manhattan. I am, to the bone, a New Yorker.
The best part of living here is being in close proximity to theater - both Broadway and off-Broadway, as well as the Metropolitan Opera which I adore.
I have lived in New York City since I was eight years old and the best part about living here are the people of NY. They are a diverse and strong group and one can learn a lot about life from living among them.
I have lived in NYC my entire life - 27 glorious years.
I have lived in New York City since 1996. What I love about New York obviously is diversity of activities my daughter and I are exposed to on a daily basis from being able to go to the museums every weekend or walking to the farmer's market to just plain hanging at the playgrounds with friends, it's never a dull moment. And while it's a city of millions, it still has a neighborhood feel with friends only blocks away.
I've lived here for a little over one year. My favorite part of living here is being able to walk everywhere and all of the fabulous restaurants!
I have lived here my entire life. While born and raised in Bayside, Queens, I spent much of my weekends growing up in the city. I have to admit, growing up here, makes you sometimes take it for granted. After surviving 9/11 (I worked at the World Financial Center, next door), my love for the city is renewed. I love the immense diversity of the city, not just culturally but at every turn there is something new and different to discover in the city.
Pretty much my entire life - I grew up in Park Slope, Brooklyn and now live in Manhattan. I can't imagine living anywhere but NYC. There is no best part of NYC for me. I love the mix of ethnicities and the way we truly are a melting pot, I love the subway and buses and the fact that I don't have to own a car. I love that my kids are getting an insanely enriched and interesting public school education because of all of the resources in the city and the cultural institutions. And, as a mom, I love that EVERYTHING delivers!
As of this month, I have lived in NYC for eleven years! The best part of living in NYC is the excitement - there is always something to do, some great park or museum exhibit to take in, amazing restaurants, etc -- the best of everything is in New York, and I feel privileged to live here.
We have lived in NYC for just over a year. New York has so much to offer in terms of culture, activities, and diversions. I love that Peanut is exposed to all this, particularly growing up as a child who is bi-cultural (Chinese and Caucasian). I love that she will never be the only minority in her class, and her neighborhood. I love that she will grow up with a different type of cultural sensitivity than I was ever able to have. She is so fortunate.
I was born in Puerto Rico but have lived in New York City for most of my adult life. It’s become home to me, so much so that I can’t ever imagine myself living anywhere else!
I have lived here for five years, and the best part about living here might be the fact that it is so hard to narrow down which part is the best. I was drawn here by the city's ever-percolating energy, and that is the probably the simplest way to describe all of the things that make living in New York such a rewarding adventure.
