    Hey guys I thought it would be great if we started a thread about all the places in the world since this is such a diverse forum.

    Basically in a post on this thread tell us about where you live and the great things about it.

    Okay I'll start:

    I live in New York City - hence my location ;). What I love about NYC is that we're always moving, there's always somewhere to go. It's an EXTREMLY crowded place (but there are places where it's less crowded such as queens, bronx - subdivisons of nyc). When you're in the main subdivision known as Manhattan (and where I live, and where most people know nyc by) you'll travel through a subway.

    Of course you can take the car but I often choose not to because there's a very low chance of finding parking when you're in the metro areas. Either that or you pay $25 an hour for parking in a lot.

    Overall NYC is a very diverse place as well. We're getting tons of Americans here (if you know what I mean ;)) and for the main part you'll be welcome here no matter who you are. You will find the occasional rude guy but that's everywhere.

    If you're looking to visit as a tourist there's plenty of places to stay here but I reccomend that you reside in hotel outside of Manhattan and travel in daily for a new adventure (unless you're coming with a huge budget).

    And that's about it for me, I hope other people have some great stories as descriptions as well!

    I live in Toronto, Canada, and although it is freezing right now with plenty of snow, the spring, summers, and the fall make it worth it.
