From New York

I’m currently posting from New York. A great place to visit, not a good place to live. Which is exactly the opposite of my feelings about Atlanta, a notoriously horrible tourist town.

Presents I’d like to give Atlanta from New York:

More than two interconnected neighborhoods.
A public transportation sytem which is cheap and effective.
An extra 20 good sushi restaurants.
Just one more great museum (not that the High isn’t fantastic).
A lack of blue laws.

    I would just be glad if people would learn to use crosswalks. Atlanta being a walking city would be swell.

    Funny this is posted… I’m a native ATLien, and will be moving to NYC later this year.. I love my hometown, but after 30yrs in the same place, I need the change of scenery and fell in love w/ NYC/Brooklyn. So I’m off to give it the good ol’ college try.

    New York in the first city in a top of most livable city and it has a higher cost of living than cities such as Atlanta. New York is considered safer than Atlanta. Choosing where to live depend on what kind of person you are, on your lifestyle and not at least on your income.

    But you get 20% of the value of a metrocard back free, so a 10 dollar card gives you six rides instead of five. This brings total price down to 1.66.

    Transit is also cheaper when you consider the amount of time saved on NY mass transit as compared to the same distance on MARTA. If time equals money, than NY transit could be considered pretty damn close to free.
