    New York City

    Well last weekend I finally got to visit the Big Apple and
    all I can say is WOW... I really didn't expect to see what I saw.
    I was in Brooklyn and man the subway is disgusting, dirty, noisy and unsafe.
    Maybe I didn't see the good areas, but man i was shocked! It was cool though to see some of the areas i hear people often talk about: Flatbush, Utica Ave, Church st etc. I Wanted so bad to go to DSW because on What not to wear the people always find tones of shoes, but I got disappointed there also. Plus there was a DSW right close to where i was staying at the holyday inn on butler close the Nevins, near the fulton mall. But my friend scared me so much, she told us not to go out without her because if people see that we are tourist we might get robbed, stabbed even even shot.
    Anyway, it was an experience, but man i don't think that i would like to live in NYC. The metro's look is a major turn off.

    the robbing and getting shot yes is an exaggeration, but her observations especially about the subway are on point. Compared to what she's used to it is filthy and disgusting.

    Well compared to Montreal is a dumpsite..... but not all the trains and stations are disgusting. I ride the 4,5,6 and those trains are usually clean.... floors and seats wiped...no graffiti....(those are kinda new)
