Some Interesting Facts About Living In New York

New York is a place of different cultures, races, ethnic groups, backgrounds and ideologies. It is also a place of many subcultures. The types of subcultures of people that you find in the suburban areas feel very different from the types of subcultures that you find in the trendiest pits of Brooklyn and Manhattan. The vibes of these places are all very different. The city tends to feel faster paced than the suburbs. There are differences between neighborhoods in the city. For example, some people from the Bronx may say that Harlem is a culture shock because it is faster paced, to an extent, than Manhattan. However, a person from the suburbs of Long Island might feel that their neighborhood on Long Island is slower paced or less tense than the Bronx.

The New York Metropolitan area is relatively condensed to the point where all kinds of people live within relatively small distances of each other. For example, the Trump-bashing, antifa-loving millennials in Brooklyn do not really live far from the white families outside of the political borders of the city who put pro-Trump signs on their lawns. It seems like these two different types of people are a million worlds from each other but they are actually a relatively short distance from each other, physically.
