For northeasterners: would you rather live in NYC or Boston? Why?
i’ve had this debate many times with co-workers and friends, and am oftens surprised how many people remain afraid of either of these two cities. NYC for me has more culture, more life, more humanity, more grit, and more to say about america than Boston can—despite its “historical” status. Boston to me remains a somewhat overblown suburb/college town with lots of expensive looking white people doing expensive white people things (not that that doesnt occur in NYC). and further more alot of people i know have this myth imbued from lots of kids movies that NYC is some cess pool of robbery, murder and drug crime—-which its not anymore. indeed, Boston tends to be more dangerous.
what myths to you harbor about both cities?
