Are we still talking about New York City? But of course we are.

Sadly, some people just don't understand this city and how it continues to be a mecca for everyone from all around the world.

Others would even go as far as to say it's a town full of weirdos and junkies, and anyone who values their sanity should just look the other way before they get sucked into its madness as well.

Well, newsflash: those sorely mistaken folks should move away, as fast as humanly possible (in fact, some New Yorkers have stated they wouldn't even notice that you're gone). No hard feelings at all, trust us; perhaps Florida would be a better fit?

The bottom line is, there are plenty of reasons to fall in love (over and over again) with this city. Most New Yorkers, native or not, just don't take the time out of their day to realize what those reasons are.

That's where we come in. Here are 15 simple reasons any person in their right mind would fall in love with NYC.


1. People say the New York City skyline is the most beautiful in the world

3. People who move here are extremely unique and beautifully ambitious 

humansofny “Making jewelry is how I breathe, and I just sell what’s left over. I sort of view it as my ministry. If somebody has a birthday coming up, I try to make them a little something. One woman at our church has a birthday today, and she’s a cancer survivor, so I made her a heart-shaped pendant that says ‘LIVE’ on it. All the little kids come to see me after church. They love me. Well, I also give them candy, which may be the reason. But I think they love me too.”


4. Most natives love making this city a better place for everyone, native or not

humansofny “I grew up with a lot of these kids’ parents. One of their fathers actually used to beat me up on the basketball court. So did his uncle. When I graduated from college, I could have left Brownsville. But I wanted to come back and be an agent of change. I wanted to help piece the neighborhood back together. So when Ms. Lopez told me she needed a basketball coach, I told her I’d do it for free. This is our second season. Our first season, we weren’t even in a league, so I had to call other schools and beg them to come play us. We didn’t even have jerseys. But we still went 8-1. Every one of these kids could make the NBA if they put in the time. And I’m here to offer that.”


5. There’s always something to do in this city
