New York, NY " Survivor State"
Beginning and ending their days with the longest commute in the country, the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple can really stress people out. NYC truly lives up to the ever popular song lyrics "If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere." If the poor of NYC were to form their own state, it would make the 4th largest state in the country.
Does it ever seem as though everywhere you go someone claims they are from Brooklyn, NY? Well, they might be. If Brooklyn (one of the 5 boroughs that make up NYC) were to become it's own city, it would be the 3rd largest in the country. Actually, it has been recorded that 1 out of every 5 Americans have either lived in Brooklyn or has had a relative who has spent time in Brooklyn, NY.
NYC's unemployment is among the highest in the country. Violent crimes, robberies and break-ins are up, which may explain why New Yorkers spend many of their days experiencing stress, depression, and problems with emotions. But New Yorkers are not quitters - the suicide and divorce rates are among of the lowest in the country. New Yorkers maintain very strong family ties have have been said to be of the most loyal friends you will ever have. The night scene is amazing but expensive with drinks that average $12-$15 each and club entrance fees of $45+.
