      Please NY is a good place to visit not to live…the bad traffic,overpriced apts, its to many people and if you not making high five figures or better you not really doing nothing in NY…thats fact. Thats why yall come to ATL,Houston, and Dallas. If you trying to raise a family or get what you worth then Dallas,Houston,Atlanta, and North Carolina is the place to go. NY is just overhyped and city and state full of a-holes who think the world revolves around them…really?

    • ughh

    • I love Tamron Hall

      You are absolutely right that is why you are commenting on this post and that is why the post is up cause you and none of the people on here care about N.Y…Yup you are sooooo right. Smh. And where are you from?

    • B

      Yeah right. Yall saying our lingo and don’t even realize you sayin it dummy. “You know what im saying”. Our slang is so embedded in this culture y’all country people forget. Furthermore y’all still would be even more country if it wasen’t for the internet. We used to have to come to down south to show our country cousins what was up. Who want’s to be country anyway.

    I think NY is cool! I’m born and Raised in L.A! And all y’all hatin’ on NY need a reality check! If u think about it NY,LA, and ATL have songs made about us! So don’t hate on NY it’s a melting Pot of all cultures and I think it’s great! As far as ATL my Dad’s side of the family is out there and I spent my summers there growing up! So I have nothin’ but love! But I will say is the DL brothas can’t get wit that! But wateva!
