We hope this compiled list encompassing the 1600s to the 1900s, will prove grist for your curious mind. As her first step in commencing this project, Miriam Medina, a native New Yorker presents in a delightful way critical and laudatory responses from the current residents of the "Big Apple." After all, New Yorkers are known for telling it exactly as it is, so let\'s hear what they want to say regarding their home town.
"Get atta my face!" "Oy Vey!" "The apartments are so expensive unless you live in a rat infested roach hotel," "Those pushcart peddlers will rob you blind and selling hot merchandise no less," "There\'s no place to park unless you pile the cars on top of each other," "Forget the subways; it\'s like being in a can of sardines," "Awesome!" "Oh how I love the annual parades they are such a beautiful sight," "I\'ve got gates on my windows and three locks on my door doesn\'t that tell you something?" "It\'s cool man, Freedom of Expression!" "New York City has some real nice parks, if you don't mind the pigeon crap," "I hate living here it\'s very stressful!" "There are lots of good ethnic restaurants," "There are too many immigrants," "You take your life in your hands when you cross the street, these crazy drivers don\'t believe in red lights or stop signs here," There are lots of great theaters especially on Broadway, but watch out for the muggers and the pick-pockets," "Hic! I\'ll drink to that, hey lady can you spare a buck?" "Some of the neighborhoods look like a war zone," "It\'s a great place for bargain hunting," "I hate the summer, smells like last year\'s garbage is still out there-- and the list of complaints and applause continues.
New York, New York: It\'s a hellava town. New York City has always had its share of growing pains, complete with political, social and economic upheavals galore. What are some of the recurring issues? Crime; accommodating masses of impoverished immigrants and migrants; the deterioration of neighborhoods; intolerable housing and extortionate rents; high taxes; unemployment; political and racial riots; police brutality and political corruption: and that\'s just the beginning. Yet, in spite of all the discomforts and miseries, miraculously, most of those who crowd the city streets of the" Big Apple" choose to stay. New York, New York.
