Is it normal to have zero desire to ever visit nyc?

I've never understood why people want to travel to NYC. Every portrayal in works of fiction make it look like an overcrowded, violent, hostile shithole where you need to make a bare minimum of 6 figures for even subpar living conditions

Famous social media accounts run by people who live in NYC make the city look even worse. Everyone is a whiny bitch, ridiculously entitled, and actively making their own communities within the city an unlivable hellscape in some retardedly misguided form of "protest", all while shitting on any place that isn't a dingy, overcrowded cesspool filled with the most toxic people our country has to offer

I've never been to NYC but if it's anything like Chicago, then my assumptions written above are almost guaranteed to be correct

*This description applies to Seattle, Portland, and all of southern California as well

  • That applies to all of the major US cities. They all have slight variants in culture but the overall feel is the same.

    With that being said, I love city living. The only thing I don't like about it is the higher crime rates.

  • I would visit New York City because it would be a similar experience to going to the zoo.

  • Visiting NYC sounds cool, but I'd not want to live there.

  • You get the good with the bad when you have a giant concentration of people from all over the globe. Great culture, and awful culture. A lot of culture traffic.

  • Perfectly normal. I'd rather go to San Francisco to see the Golden Gate Bridge.

  • Well, I really believe that what makes a place great are the people we meet there. I've been to Mauritius several times and it was different each time because of who I was hanging out when I was there.
    From what I've seen I guess that it is a city where you need money to really enjoy your stay.

  • It was a good place to visit but lately it’s creepy. In the 80’s the police and bus drivers were courteous but now even they’re rude. My grandfather took me to little Italy because he lived there and it was fun. But I took my wife there a few years ago and it was run down and sad. And we felt like we were being cased to see if we were an easy mark to rob,

  • I think NYC is the only good thing about the US when it comes to entertainment/excitement. Living there is another story but visiting is the best.

  • I've never been, but have family who has and loved it. I've heard the food is amazing and the people are friendly, but I think it would be way too crowded for my tastes, and I definitely wouldn't want to live there.

    As far as visiting goes, maybe I'd consider it if I ever get the desire to travel. It's just not my thing at this point in my life, as I'm a homebody and love the comfort of my own home and town.

    • Well imagine living in a shitty, filthy city that you can't even afford and constantly bitching/moaning about how awful the city is while ironically still adopting a completely unwarranted superiority complex toward people who live in places that are actually enjoyable/livable
