Bronx is like New York. Period.

Brooklyn is like, alright, it’s New York.

Manhattan is like, wow… now this is New York!

Queens is very New York but you know… it’s not like New York, New York. But still, it’s very New York.

Staten Island is very Staten Island.

Father grew up on Arthur Ave in the Bronx. Not as many Sicilians there anymore. The Bronx has a very high Albanian population, and they can be ruthless. But good people if you know them.

I lived in Staten Island. Hottest broads live there by a mile. You rub elbows with a lot of connected people. All in all, was fun when I was 18-22 years old, but I’ll take Florida over it any day. Would have loved to find a wife there though. Closest thing to Italy you can get in the states lol

Manhattan is the NY you see on TV and in Movies

The Bronx is the NY people are afraid of

Staten Island is the NY you saw in 80s/90s Brooklyn mob movies, but with nicer houses

Queens is the NY where everyone emigrates to.

Brooklyn is all of the above, depending on the neighborhood.

The they're all fags and burrow into each others asses to stay warm, they thought spelling it "Burroughs" wouldn't be so gay

They use the term in UK too.

They all have their own distinct smell of urine. 

The Bronx.

No thonx.

New York, New York, is everything they say

And no place that I’d rather be

Where else can you do a half a million things

All at a quarter to three

When they play their music, ooh that modern music

They like it with a lot of style

But it’s still that same old back beat rhythm

That really, really drives 'em wild

Lived in the Bronx for awhile but worked in the City. Parts of it are really nice.

Brooklyn is where welcome back kotter was set.

Accurate AF. 

Manhattan is face lifts.

Bronx is poor children playing with broken cinder blocks.

Staten is everyone's retarded Italian cousin.

Brooklyn is where you buy drugs.

Queens is where you buy Chinese food.

Such as what?  Given this is the OG, I’d imagine it’s something racial you want to hear. 

Bronx is notoriously shitty unless you are on City Island (which is getting shitty) and Country Club. Country Club will remain nice because the mob still lives there and controls things.

All my time living in NYC I would say Queens was the borough I visited the least. Brooklyn and the Bronx had great pizza. 

 

Manhattan is too expensive but it’s always fun to go and day drink and see hot models walking everywhere, as well as get your life threatened by bums on the subway. I used to want to move  back, but now you couldn’t pay me enough.
