In the spring I went to New York City for two days to appear on the Dr. Oz show. The trip was fun enough that I wondered if maybe I should consider living in the city, but a more recent trip of four days destroyed that notion. When not on a psychological high from appearing on national television, all the flaws of New York hit me hard enough that I’m sure it won’t be my future home. Here are the reasons why…

1. It smells


It’s hard to walk more than two blocks without being assaulted by an offensive odor, either from sewage or garbage. One of the reasons is that New York doesn’t put their garbage in containers to lessen the odors. Third world sanitation practices haven’t yet made its way to the city.

2. It’s loud


Have you not had a headache in a while? Would you like your mind to be constantly drowned out by loud noise from trains, cars, and crowds of people? Then move to New York where even in the middle of the night you will not escape the city that never stops honking. The only way to combat New York noise is through more noise, so people are essentially forced to wear headphones with loud music for much of the day. This greatly degrades their ability to think.

3. Walk, stop, wait


A huge chunk of your waking life in New York City can be boiled down to three words: walk, stop, wait. You walk a little while, you stop, and then you wait. You repeat this procedure more than 200 times a day. Just walking to the coffee shop nearby will involve at least ten instances of walking, stopping, and waiting. I can’t understand why human beings would want to be so deliberately herded around in such a manner.

4. The city is a mechanism for shearing sheep


Speaking of herding, the program operating in New York is this: a herd of people assemble into one location, “graze” on a product or service, then move on to the next grazing ground where they consume some more. The only catch is that each field they graze on gives them a haircut by taking their money (or at least tries to).

Many sheep spend time on a crowded subway car where they graze for a bit, exposing themselves to advertisements. Then they move to the hip Mexican joint. They graze there, spending $10 on a sandwich that photographs well on Instagram but is quite small and will require another feeding shortly. Then they go to the bar with their friends to graze but that gets boring quickly so they need to migrate after half an hour to another bar. Then they need to eat at a late-night joint. People in New York are constantly shuffled from one grazing pen to the next in a very literal sense.

Sheep hate being alone, so they actively seek out other sheep as a sign that the grazing ground is good. This is why so many New Yorkers will try to compliment a place by saying “It’s always crowded.” So you have sheep telling other sheep where it’s worth making donations of their wool, and the pattern continues every day. In fact, the crowdedness of the city itself is what entices so many South American and European sheep to move here (sheep must be around other sheep). You will never meet someone in New York who says “I like being alone” or “I don’t care for going out.” The city attracts people who get bored easily and need to follow the herd, while simultaneously convincing them that they are different from millions of others who are doing the exact same thing.

What got me is how efficient this machine is. Without even trying, money is escaping my pocket even though I had no need that required spending it. It just happens in New York that the only way to have “fun” is to spend quite a bit of money, if not on food and alcohol then on drugs and events. Going for a walk in Europe usually costs $0 but doing so in New York will involve a minimum of $40 and the inability to fully recall where it was all spent. The city put me in a capitalist hypnotic state where I wanted to give away my money as quickly as possible.

5. Relationships are sterile


It seems to be a rule that every girl who lives here is on birth control, meaning that you are also on low doses of birth control—and anti-depressants—if you just consume the city water. If you get into a relationship with a female resident, you definitely won’t be placed above her “lifestyle” or career, and the word I’m getting from guys who live here is that relationships are short indeed. If people love being herded from one grazing ground to the next, it’s no surprise that they also perform the same behavior with their lovers. If you live in New York, it’s impossible not to have a neverending string of casual relationships. You’ll need to sleep with at least ten people to have something resembling a normal relationship with one.

You’ll also have a dozen two minutes conversations per day that result in absolutely nothing, where you’re meeting people just for the sake of meeting people. And then you run into these people at some point in the future and wonder, “Where did I meet this person again?” Because there are so many human options, your brain gets quickly re-wired to be overly picky about who you develop relationships with, meaning that in a city where you are surrounded by millions, you’re intensely lonely.

6. It’s too diverse


Do people like diversity because of a natural urge within them or because they were told to like it? Some diversity is healthy but New York takes it to an extreme where you’re everywhere and nowhere at the same time. It’s just too mentally taxing to try connecting with people that come from entirely different places and backgrounds. Without strong physical attraction or a mutual shared interest, no friendship or love will result. When you’re young, meeting thousands of people a year from “all over the world” can be exciting, but if you already know the type of person you connect with best, it would be smarter to surround yourself with only those people.

My conclusion of New York is that it’s a great place where sheep can get slowly fleeced while thinking they are living in paradise because of the many food, entertainment, and human options on offer. The constant noise and action of the city makes it impossible for them not to think too deeply about their lives, but to work hard for money that they will immediately be donating back to the many wolves that prowl the grazing grounds.

For a man under 30 years old, I can see how this city could benefit his hustle and game, but after that it seems to be a way to limit a man’s self development by keeping him on a nonstop treadmill that lacks much in the way of deeper meaning or fulfillment. While there was a point I wondered if New York was right for me, I’m absolutely certain now that it’s not.

  1. Cielo September 7, 2015 at 9:31 am

    Valid points Roosh, have you been to LA?

    1. SaTaN September 11, 2015 at 2:31 pm

      Been there, it sucks! bigger shithole than NYC will ever be!
      L.A. is filled with nothing but low-life junkie retard liberal fags, dykes, mentally defective idiots, illiterate trailer trash asshole jews, spics and mexicunt morons and complete weirdo fags who all think they are better than the rest of the world and have yet to realize that they ARE just stuck in the countries asshole!

      1. Da Mac September 21, 2015 at 2:33 am

        No, wait. Tell me like it really is, SaTaN! Don’t hold back on my account!

        The sad thing is, if you’re not completely correct, you’re damn close to it. 🙂

      2. paul January 5, 2016 at 2:42 am

        I’ll take LA over NYC any day.

    2. horn September 19, 2015 at 12:36 pm

      I posted this about your last [positive] NYC trip:

      Most women are not golddiggers by any stretch. Girls will not only
      look you in the eye on the street/bar, they have no hesitation about
      eye-fucking you and letting you know they like you and your style.

      Walked from 33rd and 7th to 47th and Park because it was nice out. Had about
      10 pretty girls check me out, some more in Starbucks [easiest place to
      get numbers and idates] passed 3 models on the street and 1 famous model
      who I recognized from Vogue/fashion spreads of EE origin.

      It is expensive, but you won’t find hotter, sexier women anywhere else in the
      world. They dress to the nines and like to party. And the mix of races
      and styles…if you like Asian girls you can date 2 very hot ones a year
      with little/no effort if you’re a taller white guy.

      You may have to grind at the beginning, but once you know how to work corporate/Wall St, you can get a big raise every 1-2 years by leaving or leveraging.’

      1. Veni Vidi Vici September 26, 2015 at 2:07 pm

        Disagree The women in Porto Alegre Brazil shattered my belief in NYC chick supremacy. Unless you’re one of sucessful corporate types ( and show it ) dating is actually more difficult for most men compounded by the male / female ratio does not favor men until after the age of 40.

      2. horn September 28, 2015 at 9:29 pm

        Pretending artistic types can’t get laid with hot girls in NYC is lol-tastic to the highest degree. Try again. Also, you misread what I wrote, apparently, the M-F ratio is not key, the *straight* M-F ratio is. And there are hundreds of thousands of young, gay men all over the City. A huge number of attractive women in this town have no dates for a Saturday night.

      3. Veni Vidi Vici September 29, 2015 at 9:25 am

        Really how many of these gays are really bisexual? NYC LGBT population is around 4 percent not even in the top ten cities. I been clubbing in NYC since the days of LimeLight so I understand the scene pretty well and seen first hand the type men that pull here.
        If an attractive women under 35 is single in NYC it’s by choice. Unless your very attractive or have a talent which brings you status your income is far more important then most other U.S. Cities.

  2. coldstream23 September 7, 2015 at 9:31 am

    Walk/stop/wait, sure. Although what other city or town allows people to walk extensively from place to place? Walking is a normal and important human activity that has become absent for most modern zoo humans outside of the treadmill or vacation time in some walkable place.

    1. Petar September 7, 2015 at 9:47 am

      He is trying to emphasize the dominance of the ongoing machinery with a bit of an exaggerated depiction.

    2. ActionJackson23 September 7, 2015 at 12:13 pm

      Yeah I love walking and hate having to drive everywhere …

    3. edcdbbb6 September 7, 2015 at 5:35 pm

      The point is you can’t take a walk like a normal human being in Manhattan. You are constantly hitting timed lights and other obstacles. It’s very stressful. Other major cities are much better in this regard.

      1. coldstream23 September 8, 2015 at 7:42 am

        Which U.S. cities allow as much walking as NYC/Manhattan? Of cities I have been to, it is the most walkable.

      2. CamelJockey September 10, 2015 at 6:53 am

        I used to live in Long Beach, CA. I always use to walk my dog all over the city. It is way more walkable than NYC

      3. SaTaN September 11, 2015 at 2:34 pm

        Not nice to call your wife a dog, even if she IS one! Meanwhile I thought you dune coon shitskin faggits only fucked and got butt fucked by camels and goats!

      4. CamelJockey September 11, 2015 at 4:28 pm

        You must have caught your girlfriend getting bent over by an ethnic minority, didn’t you?

      5. JohnDSee September 28, 2015 at 9:41 am

        Boston is a good walk.

      6. 66Scorpio September 10, 2015 at 9:46 pm

        The fact that the city is densely packed like a crate of sardines stacked 100 high means that just about everything is – in theory – within walking distance. I think the point is that this alone does not make a place “walkable”.
        I have only spent a weekend in Manhattan but I think I understand what Roosh is getting at. Shanghai is much more walkable than Hong Kong despite the latter being much more compact.

      7. SaTaN September 11, 2015 at 2:33 pm

        Which ones? OK, now which ones have 20 million people in them? Yeah, that’s what I thought, asshat! Now go blow your boyfriend some more faggit!

      8. paul January 5, 2016 at 2:37 am

        Why would you want to go to a city that has 20 million people? Being overcrowded is one of the many horrid things about the big rotten apple. There is also over priced, over rated, toxic, ugly, smells, rude, loud, corrupt, filthy transportation…. the list goes on and on.

    4. 66Scorpio September 10, 2015 at 9:44 pm

      In a more suburban setting you can walk from point A to point B continuously without stopping every couple of minutes to wait for traffic, an elevator, a transit queue or whatever.

    5. SaTaN September 11, 2015 at 2:32 pm


  3. paul B September 7, 2015 at 9:34 am

    That was a good analysis. New York and Hollywood, (los Angels) are the two places that have influenced and dominated world culture and relationships the most I would say. Everyone in the world wants to be part of it — by the way they dress and talk and think. So wherever one is in the world, NY and LA will be there to some extent. The end result is more shallow people (sheep).

    1. SaTaN September 11, 2015 at 2:41 pm

      Stupid retards with unfounded blanket statements like YOU are who fuck up the country! It’s also the weak minded, shallow, ignorant, assholes who come here from Iowa, Ohio, Alabama, Texas, South Dakota, etc., who THINK it’s like that here and that is how and what they should be like due to some total garbage they saw on some fake as TV show or movie, and think they have to walk and talk and dress a certain way, because “they do it like that in NYC!” It’s so not at all true! NOT everyone here is a weak minded faggit yuppie/preppie 9-5 blowjob hack! If you REALLY walked down a NYC street, chances are you would NEVER see any two people dressed the same way!

      1. paul January 5, 2016 at 2:49 am

        ^Spoken like a demented toxic new yorker. No wonder people hate this city so much. It’s because of ass holes like you SaTaN.

  4. John September 7, 2015 at 10:16 am

    New York is not a city to be liked in a day (or four). Need to give it a few weeks at the very least, and get to know the insides and outs of it, the undercurrents.

    You’ve given bland remote cities in the soviet block weeks of your time.. yet you allocate 4 days for a city like new york? That’s just too funny.

    I mean it’s up to you but it’s way way too short of a time to pass worthy judgement.

    1. Tom Dane September 7, 2015 at 1:23 pm

      He comes from DC and been traveling a he knows how Western cities are. Of course, NYC is going to be just another hell, like the others. Sure all those hells are not exactly the same, but they are all hells.

      1. Godslave September 10, 2015 at 4:37 pm

        NYC is not like other Western cities. It’s in a class of its own. John’s right. Doosh V is a fucking moron who doesn’t make enough money to enjoy the city properly

      2. paul January 5, 2016 at 2:38 am

        “It’s in a class of its own”. Yup, low class. NYC is a total shit hole, a toxic dump and the most disgusting big city in America.

      3. Brandon September 30, 2017 at 9:52 pm

        NYC is the most important city in the world in terms of its financial, political, cultural and fashion influence. Fuck off

      4. TonDaneIsFaggit September 11, 2015 at 2:43 pm

        You must be some west bubble fuck faggit who loves to eat the cock dozens of times per day! Hope you get AIDS, ya queer fuck!

      5. Da Mac September 21, 2015 at 2:42 am

        A life. Got one?

      6. paul January 5, 2016 at 2:38 am

        You have a nice day too 🙂

    2. bucky September 10, 2015 at 1:09 am

      to be fair, bland remote soviet block cities can be pretty awesome. i totally get that.

      1. paul January 5, 2016 at 2:39 am

        I’ll take a fair, bland remote society block city over NYC any day. People are much friendly in the USSR than in the rotten big apple.

    3. Da Mac September 21, 2015 at 2:42 am

      Have you ever been to any of them, John? Apparently not. Usually, the ugly part is merely on the outskirts of a beautiful historical center that puts square North American city planning to shame.

    4. Veni Vidi Vici September 26, 2015 at 1:56 pm

      Disagree, I hated NYC from day 1 and still hated years later. NYC is the type of place you either love it or hate it.

    5. paul January 5, 2016 at 2:37 am

      I’ve lived in NYC for 18 years and have hated every minute of it. The reviewer is correct, NYC stinks! It’s a toxic shit hole with toxic people and a toxic government with a fascist militaristic police department. It’s over rated, over crowded and over priced. It is by far, the most disgusting big city in America. Thank goodness I’m moving out. Give me a bland remote city in the soviet block any day over New York.

  5. Conrad Stonebanks September 7, 2015 at 10:18 am

    You’d better be swimming in cash if you want to live in anything decent in NY.

    1. adam smith September 7, 2015 at 11:56 am

      how about the suburbs ?

      1. Veni Vidi Vici September 7, 2015 at 12:54 pm

        Suburbs are a bit cheaper then Manhattan but rents are still very high here. I used to live in a decent one bedroom apartment in central NJ and my rent was $1400 a month and this is consider on the low end.

      2. 66Scorpio September 10, 2015 at 9:54 pm

        Several years back my brother was spending $1500 a month for less than 500 square feet. Then again, I have dropped a grand a month for a similar apartment in mid-town Toronto but it was a great neighbourhood and about 15 minutes by train from downtown.

      3. Ternarydemon September 10, 2015 at 1:23 am

        Logistics will greatly hamper your game. 1 hour in a train to reach a bar is not good for the lay, nor spending $100 per night in multiple cab trips. Suburbs are not conductive to good game.

      4. adam smith September 11, 2015 at 12:06 am

        thanks for the enlightenment 😉

      5. Veni Vidi Vici September 22, 2015 at 1:46 am

        Depends on the Town as many have suburbs good night life with a range of bars and clubs close by Downtown Freehold New Jersey comes to mind. That’s why you have you own place or a Hotel room and a car near a few night venues of your choice.

  6. Libertas September 7, 2015 at 10:19 am

    #2 really depends on the location. Like I said when we met on the night of the lecture Roosh, when you get above the 50’s (on the east side) it’s more residential and thus the neighborhoods are quieter.

    Trash, yeah. That happens everywhere. It doesn’t smell in the winter though.

    And there are free things to do, you just need to be here a bit longer to see them all.

    The rest is pretty accurate though. Girls are friendly here but the flake rate is atrocious and like you said, you’re probably not going to find a really good girl to be in your corner for life here. It’s tinder culture day in and day out.

    1. ActionJackson23 September 7, 2015 at 12:00 pm

      Yeah it sounds like Roosh was staying in the East Village/LES …

    2. Ternarydemon September 10, 2015 at 1:27 am

      It is similar in chick neighborhoods in large cities all over the world. Girls have a thousand things – mostly frivolous and useless stuff – through their heads. Knowing a man and being fucked by him is usually behind sushi night and re-run of Girls. You got to do extreme number of dates/approaches to get a bang, with tremendous flakes; or be very high value from the beginning, which in NY City means to have tight Game AND a 120k salary for logistics (assuming no student loans).

  7. Johnny Lionseed September 7, 2015 at 10:20 am

    The older I get, the more I find country living appealing. A buddy of mine recently bought a 50 acre homestead out in the middle of nowhere, Virginia. He has mountains, a shooting range, a small farm, and a stable with 4 horses. He is surrounded by other people with the same core values and life views he has, and it is always quiet.

    There is some land near him – ~60 acres – that I’m thinking about purchasing myself and building on. Every time my wife and I go see him we find ourselves slightly envious of the peace and freedom he has out on his land.

    1. Titan000 September 8, 2015 at 9:14 pm

      I already pine for the countryside and I am in my 20s

      1. bucky September 10, 2015 at 1:13 am

        try to find a way to get over to ukraine, russia, or belarus. learn the language and avoid the capital and larger cities. meet a nice girl. spend the summers out at the dacha with her family, working the land, swimming in the river, barbecuing, furtively making love with her at night while her family sleeps. spend the winters in bed with her, keeping each other warm. never leave. just a suggestion.

    2. 66Scorpio September 10, 2015 at 9:59 pm

      The problem with rural living is finding a job. Unless you own your own business or have a government gig, employment is hard to come by in smaller centres.

    3. Driver October 5, 2015 at 9:58 pm

      Sounds like Bedford, Buena Vista or perhaps more out west near Norton. Yes, I never saw going to New York City as a plus. Too much bullshit.

      Come to VA, you’ll be glad that you did (and stay).

  8. rationalize September 7, 2015 at 11:14 am

    But Roosh, for an american city, does it get much better?

    1. John September 8, 2015 at 6:31 pm

      Boston, Denver, Seattle, Texas Triangle

      1. bucky September 10, 2015 at 1:14 am

        never been to boston, but i’d take any of your other suggestions over NYC any day. texas is particularly awesome. best girls in the US, in my opinion.

      2. CamelJockey September 10, 2015 at 6:55 am

        Denver is so much nicer than NYC. Especially if you love nature and the outdoors.

      3. bucky September 10, 2015 at 7:55 am

        that’s where i live. it is beautiful, but it’s SJW central. haven’t spent a lot of time in NYC, san francisco, or montreal, but i have trouble imagining how they could be much more leftwing than denver.

      4. bucky September 10, 2015 at 8:00 am

        i’ve spent a lot of time in denver. it’s beautiful, but it’s SJW central. has to be one of the most left wing cities in the US. tough dating market too, requiring excellent game. definitely preferrable to NYC, still.

      5. paul January 5, 2016 at 2:42 am

        Denver is definitely a better city than New York, but that’s not saying much.

      6. Katana2011 September 12, 2015 at 11:53 am

        I agree, I live along the eastern border with Mexico and the Spanish women from the Monterrey Mexico area that populate this region are exactly why I have lived here for ten year’s! Many of these women prefer gringo’s and are usually somewhat tall, lean, light skinned and very loyal and attractive!

      7. bucky September 12, 2015 at 1:09 pm

        that’s what i dug about san antonio when i lived there. lots of cute latinas, but also plenty of classic texas blondes. you could go either way. texan women tend to be more traditional and feminine than most american women too. i often say that they are the closest we get in the US to russian women.

      8. Katana2011 September 13, 2015 at 11:35 am

        The Rio Grande Valley has always been known for their hot Latina women, they for the most part are great to live with, but do expect a little bit of jealousy if you do interact with other women, even at work. The one I have been with for several years grew up in Monterrey Mexico and she cooks, cleans and her sweet personality makes me laugh and look forward to going home at the end of the day. I’m originally from the midwest(Indy-no-place) and would rather die than return to that frozen tundra of feminist debauchery!

      9. bucky September 13, 2015 at 2:17 pm

        yeah, i look at guys i know here with their tattooed, feminist landwhale wives and shudder too. my wife is central american, sounds very similar to the woman you’re with (although she’s either a little less jealous or i’m better at hiding my wandering eyes than you are). it’s a good life.

      10. Da Mac September 21, 2015 at 2:48 am

        Indeed, the South altogether is more feminine, but whaling is an inherent part of the culture nowadays.

      11. 66Scorpio September 10, 2015 at 10:00 pm

        San Diego? Never been there but I keep hearing stories.

      12. JohnEatsDicks September 11, 2015 at 2:48 pm

        Boston=All fags/expensive/too liberal…
        Denver=Way too many faggs/shitty/too many nigs (like NY and NJ and Chicongo)!..
        Seattle=too many selfish, self absorbed wanna be preppie fag flakes and wishy-washy brainless assholes!…
        Texas=Too many filthy spics/rednecks and fags!

  9. David Cooke September 7, 2015 at 11:26 am

    “… you are also on low doses of birth control—and anti-depressants—if you just consume the city water. ”

    Dude, seriously? Are you really this fucking daft?

    1. Morrison September 7, 2015 at 6:33 pm

      I sure as fuck would NOT recommend drinking the water there from the tap; even if it was filtered. Bottled water for me all the way.

      1. Morrison loves cock September 11, 2015 at 2:51 pm

        Hey uneducated RETARD dude!
        FYI, NYC actually does have the CLEANEST and SAFEST tap water in the united states!
        That IS a fucking US Gov health department fact!
        So you may now go back to sucking the jizz out of your gay boyfriends asshole some more!

      2. Da Mac September 21, 2015 at 2:51 am

        You are a reminder of how resoundingly healthy the soul becomes in a fulfilling place like NYC.

      3. spicynujac September 12, 2015 at 11:47 pm

        Reverse Osmosis or some type of activated aluminum filter are needed. These are expensive and not part of municipal water filtration plants. Most filters do NOT get rid of pharmaceuticals or fluoride.

      4. Da Mac September 21, 2015 at 2:54 am

        Liquids in the US are a sad story in general. I just heard that fluoride is supposed to be particularly nasty for the body, yet is fed into the American water supply by municipalities on purpose!

        This is, again, to say nothing of the “milk”. Blah!

      5. spicynujac September 21, 2015 at 12:16 pm

        Yeah, most European nations (I believe 70 to 80%) ban fluoride but of course it is routinely added here in the good ole freedom country of USA. It’s good for the outside of the teeth, but a horrible thing to put inside your body. The obvious solution is to put it in a tooth cleaning product like toothpaste. But it also works as a mind altering substance, making those who ingest it more docile, so therefore we have it in our water. This was first pioneered in Nazi concentration camps and Siberian gulags in the 1940s.

        The U.S. is intended to be a big slave pit with resources to be squandered en masse by a blustering military industrial complex.

    I much prefer smaller coastal American cities like San Diego and Santa Barbara to big supercities.

    1. BJ September 8, 2015 at 7:50 pm

      This. I would like to live in SD but it’s very hard as a foreigner to get a job there

      1. Da Mac September 21, 2015 at 2:57 am

        Roosh or someone else on the sites said that San Diego is unfortunately littered with soldiers, though.

    2. Da Mac September 21, 2015 at 2:56 am

      Indeed, Santa Barbara looks like it would be a great place to live!

      I’m so pissed at having “barely” missed out on a job there (in the 90’s) and ending up in LA instead… :c(

    I don’t understand what you’re talking about, everyone knows that diversity has immeasurably enriched J̶e̶w̶ New York City … and just think, all of Europe will soon also get to experience this wonderful gift!

    1. clockworkelves September 7, 2015 at 3:48 pm

      You’re making me think creepy thoughts. That video was made in 2012 where she states: “[Europe is] now going into a multicultural mode.. without that transformation, Europe will not survive.”

      How did she know? Was Obama’s role in funding Al-Qaeda and “moderate rebels” in Syria predetermined? The rise of ISIS as a result has created a humanitarian crisis that has spilled over into Europe in 2015. Was this an intentional move on the grand chessboard as Brzezinski would call it? Is Germany’s hand really forced or are there other forces at play?

      And Russia, predictably demonized by the Atlanticists and the Western media is like Dutch Boy with his finger on the first leak on the overwhelmed cracked dam of european civilization? Maybe the Zionists were really behind the Bolsheviks and WWI..

    People who have these views don’t belong in NYC. Perhaps rural Nebraska would suit you better.

    re: 4. The city is a mechanism for shearing sheep
    I’ve recently come off a short fast of three days. While you’re on a fast, you step out of a way thinking that most people don’t even realize they’re in. The thought came to me: “Modern life is maintaining frame until the next gratification”.

  16. T.G. September 7, 2015 at 4:25 pm

    You a tourist dude!! There’s a bit more than six things wrong with NYC, just as there are countless more that are great about it. If you can’t walk here without spending $40 maybe it’s an issue of self-control and not the wonderful offerings on display? But you didn’t spend any time learning how this city beats, where to go, where to procure, it’s not your fault, but really this whole post is quite elemental. Manhattan is 22 sq miles and I’m wondering how much of it you actually saw and experienced with locals. And Brooklyn is a world unto itself.

    Some of the best thinking comes out of this city because most of us learn to be grounded wherever we are. Some of my best thinking occurs on the 6 line. We focus laser-like on the essentials and know what’s worth what. Not to knock country living, but we’re not off fantasizing of idyllic shitty places in the prairies to have a cogent thought. It’s called the fuckin HUSTLE for a reason. This place isn’t for everybody. Living here is an art-form, and some folks won’t have the resources (time + money + patience) to see it through.

    Sterile relationships? I’ve had long-lasting solid relationships with SANE models because I did spend 5 FULL YEARS here working on my hipster.fashionable business which social-proofed me to high hell. Like in any city, you have to invest some time into it. A man who knows that women are commodities should recognize the GOLD MINE that is New York City.

    Nothing wrong in choosing a city that will be a breeze if it’s where you’ll be happy. Alas, there are no perfect cities in the world, not anymore, just those that can approximate your ideal. And each city will have it’s trade-offs. To each his own, but don’t deprive yourself of any future goodness based on a four day trip. And know that calling all us residents sheep is its own form of smug superiority.

    1. edcdbbb6 September 7, 2015 at 5:29 pm

      So in summary, if you bust your ass for five years working poseur angles and can tolerate chronic high levels of stress and noise, then NYC might work out to be a nice place to live.

      The thing I notice about NYC, LA, and London is the residents are always giving themselves pep talks. They go on about how incredible and enriching the city is. It’s transparently about convincing themselves to tolerate the pointless grind. People in actually really nice cities just don’t blather on like this.

      1. T.G. September 7, 2015 at 6:11 pm

        It’s a reductionist way of looking a it. I found it a nice place to live from Day 1; else, I wouldn’t have stayed. I was busting my ass on something I believed in, something that paid off, and thoroughly enjoyed those five years.

        I’m sorry you thought it was blather. The people who complain often of NYC, is it because they’re not up to the challenge of living there? I wouldn’t make that assumption, though the pep talk thing is probably true. You get a lot of people like the character from that movie “Election” who speaks lovingly of New York as he lives in squalor.

        Pep talk tendency aside, did you notice too that we’re also the first to bitch about the downsides of our city? It’s just that we’ll push against reductionist and simplistic and all-encompassing views of the city based on a stay of four fucking days.

      2. Duchamp September 8, 2015 at 7:20 pm

        “So in summary, if you bust your ass for five years working poseur angles and can tolerate chronic high levels of stress and noise, then NYC might work out to be a nice place to live.”

        Those were my thoughts exactly as I was reading that post. “C’mon.. if you do X,Y&Z an do then do this and that and the other thing and wait a few years and then….” Much like some infommercial on getting fit: “Only three short hours a day you can do this..”

        Too much work, so little reward. And as someone aleady stated here on this thread, the NYC biches are disease infected cum buckets.

  17. NonCanadian September 7, 2015 at 5:25 pm

    Every big city is more or less the same and New York ain’t no different.
    I’ve lived many many years in Toronto and easily can say that Toronto is a NY wannabe in all aspects of social and even business life.
    Every big city is a place where people tend to flock to hoping to find that “winning ticket” which will give them a happy, fulfilling and emotionally rich life. Every day thousands of people come to NY, Toronto, Moscow, Berlin, LA, SanFran, Tokyo looking for a glimmer of hope. Most of them never make it and give up after several months or even several years, hop on a plane or a train heading home with a lot of stories to tell their grandchildren about the “Conquer of NY”;) But some do make it and thrive in the ambience of a place as big, noisy, polluted, active and cosmopolitan as NY, LA or any other megacity in the world.

  18. Morrison September 7, 2015 at 6:27 pm

    Good article. New York always is a mixture of fermenting shit and / or urine. Add in garbage scent too.

    Also the weather sucks there. Literally the only best time to be in that berg is a couple of week’s in the autumn and a couple of weeks in early May. The rest of the year it is either way too cold and dismal or too hot and humid.

    I also read your previous piece on nyc and you were commenting on the females there and how much easier it is to game them. Ok maybe that is true, but today when any NYC twat spreads her legs for any man, she is serving cock No. 5001. Seriously. The STD contamination factor in the women there I guess is a nice combination with the fermenting shit / piss / garbage in the air there.

    And let’s suppose you slept with a skag there and you were lucky enough NOT to contract a horrible disfiguring STD from her, God help your sorry ass if she turns out to be something like that mattress bitch from Columbia that made national headlines a short while ago.

    NYC was a classy, elegant city back in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Now the place is a shithole complete with STD riddled whores and fermenting shit and piss.

    No fucking thanks.

    1. Duchamp September 8, 2015 at 7:22 pm

  19. Marcel Dion September 8, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    Real good article. Young men are attracted to the big cities because of the “vibrancy”, but when u get older u prefer it less. I’m from Seattle and as I got older I grew to despise it for reasons that are really quite particular to Seattle. Here, the women seem to be so alike one another so much one would think they are mass produced on an assembly line: they all have little dogs they walk on a leash everywhere. Pets are so central to the identity of Seattle-ites an entire industry of dog doctors and dog dentists has sprouted up. It’s not impossible that one day there will be dog playschool, dog therapy, dog spas, dog pedicure, and dog match-making services including dog marriage and dog weddings. Throw in the left/socialist politics and you’ve essentially reached a kind of swpl nirvana, the city that every lesbian with blue hair and a nose ring feels she must make a pilgrimage to.

    My response was to move to Tacoma because I’m a city boy and I need the amenities of city life. Tacoma is a gritty blue collar town but a mere 30 minutes to Seattle.

    For everyone disgusted with the big pretentious coastal cities of America, I recommend moving to one of the exurbs.

    1. Barwin September 8, 2015 at 10:27 pm

      I also noticed those things in Seattle. It has the most gender neutral, androgynous women I’ve ever seen in any city.

      1. TyKo Steamboat September 9, 2015 at 12:32 am

        Many guys used to call into the Tom Leykis show & say many negative things about Seattle women in general.

  20. John September 8, 2015 at 6:32 pm

    Humans aren’t meant to live in places like NYC. Attaining a minimal amount comfort costs a lot more than the average person can afford. If you’ve ever been to an Indian casino, the price inflation is similar in New York. $30 for a USB cable.

  21. John September 8, 2015 at 6:35 pm

    John Rocker on having to play for the New York Mets or Yankees:

    “I’d retire first. It’s the most hectic, nerve-racking city. Imagine having to take the 7 Train to the ballpark looking like you’re riding through Beirut next to some kid with purple hair, next to some queer with AIDS, right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time, right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It’s depressing… The biggest thing I don’t like about New York are the foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English. Asians and Koreans and Vietnamese and Indians and Russians and Spanish people and everything up there. How the hell did they get in this country?”

    As an Aussie, I loved visiting New York – it’s a lot of fun, a true assault on the senses, and it has a real sense of energy and buzz about it – but there’s no way I could ever live there. Just too loud, too crowded, too dirty. For people who live there, it’s all about the moolah… and I like the outdoors, nature and space too much! Plus, all the women there seem to have ridden the carousel, so good luck getting a decent girlfriend there!

  23. Awesome Possum September 8, 2015 at 7:59 pm

    Sounds like Toronto screwed up your perception. Now, “All western culture” sucks.

    Diversity in NYC is amazing. You can meet authentic FOB Brazilian, Ukrainian, Russian, Turkish, etc etc girls in NYC. You don’t have to leave home to do it, and you can sample them all in one place.

    Your argument against diversity is no stronger than some random mans argument against leaving the states for greener pastures “The culture is too much.”. Really?

    As for smell, as long as you stay in Manhattan, it isn’t a problem.

    Walking? Much better for your health than driving.

    Shearing sheep? Are you a sheep Roosh? Were you unable to ask girls on the subway where a pet-shop was? Subways in NYC are a day game dream come true.

    Sterile relationships? Actually, in many parts of NYC, women are HUNTING for a boyfriend, because a lot of men in NYC are gay, and those who aren’t are less than ideal for other reasons. It’s easy to clean up in NYC. And as said above, FOB girls from any locale are available for relationships.

    The only point I will concede is the loudness, but who didn’t know NYC was loud?

    Good to have you back.


  24. GRock September 8, 2015 at 9:50 pm

    1-3 all true. Garbage, I remember on my last visit eating at numerous cafes and while eating the aforementioned $10 sandwich, inhaling and smelling rotten garbage from bags on the sidewalk. It made it difficult to maintain my appetite. If I recall, it so happened to be during one of the last unionized garbage man strikes. so the heaping piles where 2-4 times larger than usual, and smelly as shit.

    4-6 true as well, but it’s easy to divert your mind off the negative aspects of 4-6 by either partaking less in them, or making them work to your advantage.

    Is not NYC the birthplace of almost every ill that plagues the west, and western women? Why even visit that shithole when there is a big world full of other experiences, unless one is just sadomasochistic and or grunge lover.

  27. TyKo Steamboat September 9, 2015 at 12:17 am

    I’ve always frowned upon or felt sorry for people sleeping in airports. But when I was returning from Odessa in June, I refused to spend 90$ to stay in a hotel in NY for the principal alone… I didn’t regret hanging out for 12 hours overnight even after the lousy 4 hours of sleep I got in shitty JFK airport. Also, I just never wanted to step foot into that city. It holds no appeal to me.
    Too difficult to spend that much (& that’s before the cab ride 60-80$) after spending 28$ a night staying in the best apartments in Odessa in the Summer time.

  28. Guy Breeze September 9, 2015 at 11:14 am

    I’ve lived in NY for over 30yrs. I ride my bike for transit and pack meals that take me to my dinner which is home cooked either by myself or my whore of the moment. I don’t spend a dime if I don’t want to in NYC. You are cool Roosh V, but NYC is for the savvy.

  29. qc September 9, 2015 at 1:42 pm

    It would be interesting to see how Chicago compares against New York.

  30. Shmalkandik September 9, 2015 at 8:14 pm

    Well, only partly right.
    If you can lick the problem of rent – and I conc4ede it is a big if – there no place on earth to offer more of anything – or anyone – you want. Native New Yorkers know where to shop, how to eat, and how to enjoy waling. Natives now how to enjoy off Broadway (Broadway is for tourists), good music (still found down town) and good people. Only the newbies fall into the fashion trap. Fashion is Fascism – but style is Freedom. And, you’ve either got or haven’t got style.

    1. Guy Breeze September 9, 2015 at 11:30 pm

      Also there is free entertainment throughout the year. Especially during the late spring through early fall. The summer is king where there are eclectic choices of free activities and entertainment available. I second the comment about Broadway. Ive seen about 7 shows in my life. Im always amused at the hoopala surrounding the excitement of the tourists interest in Broadway’s overpriced and underwhelming entertainment. I get enough of it by occasionally watching the Tony’s. Rents are very high but you can find something in a conservative price range to just lay your head ( no doorman needed) . Like they say, If you can make it here……..its no bullshit!

  31. w w September 10, 2015 at 12:36 am

    Roosh you are right you NYC isnt right for you and more importantly NYC doesn’t want you , go back to Bum Fuck Land where you can Graze in sheep-less tranquility.

  32. Maht September 10, 2015 at 3:25 pm

    My job kept trying to send me to NYC every other week and occasionally I’d get sent to San Francisco or LA. But mostly NYC. I hated NYC so damn much I told my job no more work travel for me. I really like San Francisco (mostly stayed in North Beach) but I was willing to eliminate the opportunity to go back there just to avoid NYC. What a clusterfuck.

  33. Sangreal September 10, 2015 at 3:56 pm

    I suspect most New Yorkers live in tiny dingy grey apartments so It’s not surprising they have a need for grazing at various entertainment and drinking establishments. I can’t see a real man staying in the city for very long in those conditions which probably explains why in Manhattan young women outnumber similar aged men by a significant margin, with many of those being gay “artists” working in the performing arts industry.

    If I were young and had the opportunity to work in the finance industry there, I would bank most of what I made, bang the local talent, then GTFO on my 30th birthday to somewhere sane.

  34. 66Scorpio September 10, 2015 at 9:41 pm

    My brother is in his early 30s and got married back in May of this year. He went to college in Manhattan and has been living and working there ever since. His employer is the Guggenheim and his wife is also in the museum industry so perhaps he is in something of a fantasy bubble compared to your typical blue and white collar denizens. But he seems happy with the whole situation.

  35. ua2 September 11, 2015 at 1:47 am

    The best places to live in the US are skitowns. Jackson Hole (WY), Sun Valley (ID), Telluride, Breckenridge, Park City (UT), Tahoe, incline village, etc.

    1. spicynujac September 12, 2015 at 11:49 pm

      That’s very subjective. Jackson Hole Wyoming is a very pretty place, but small and no way to make any money unless you just want to work at a hotel or resort there. I love visiting that part of the country but could never have a career there.

      1. ua2 September 13, 2015 at 2:45 am

        That’s why the roosh/rp community talks about location-free income.

      2. spicynujac September 13, 2015 at 10:13 am

        If I have location-free income then I’m choosing to live outside the high-cost American and western Europe areas. Your money will go much, much further in most other countries, and you will be removed from the toxic American culture.

  36. SaTaN September 11, 2015 at 2:24 pm

    I call bullshit! You have never even been here and are only making half assed retarded, uneducated and unfounded assumptions most likely based upon what you’ve seen in bad movies and on TV and read in biased jewspapers!!
    I am a NYC born and raised man, and I CAN say that it is NOT like what this retard says at all!
    But I AM real glad that another piece of shit asshole decided NOT to move here and be another part of the shit problem that needs to be eradicated from MY country!

    And sure, many people go on a lot of dates when they are young, who didn’t? Here it is considered NORMAL to play the field and see who and whats out there!
    I dated well over 200 girls between the ages 13-20, probably has sex with at least 150 of them, but, I was young than, and was playing the field, and getting my rocks off, and I was looking for MY Mrs.Right while I was at it!
    And yeah, I met my Mrs Right, my soul mate, luckily for me though by only age 20 when I was still young and before anything started to fall off! And have been with her and only her, very happily ever since, we’ve been together now for 28 wonderful years and raised two beautiful babies in fine young, outstanding men, unlike most of the pure pussy faggits that are out there nowadays!!
    And my wife is NOT a typical fat, spoiled american feminist jew dyke cow, like your mom is either!
    Oh HELL NO!, I bagged me a really pretty, really good, well mannered, sexy, educated and smart, loyal, 100% Irish virgin beauty!

    And as far as your bullshit column goes, here’s MY take on your mostly bullshit post!

    #1, Garbage rarely ever piles up like we see in your 1970’s-1980’s type photo- (the first one near the top which shows a huge pile of trash bags in a giant snow pile) – here in the city anymore, that is usually only when there has either been a Sanitation employee sick-out or strike, or a really huge snow storm which has caused trash pick-up’s to be temporarily suspended while the sanitation department focuses on clearing streets and sidewalks for the cars, trucks, pedestrians and mostly businesses.
    NYC Dept Of Sanitation makes TWO trash pickups per week, each and every week! Much unlike back In that third world shithole YOU crawled out from under where they don’t even have a garbage truck, unless you count your mom going around and hoarding everything in sight in her old rotted to death 1954 Mercedes diesel pickup truck with no exhaust, the wads of old shirts, bath towels and rope wrapped around the rear rim as a “new” tire and a goat, donkey and 3 legged mutt dog pulling it along, which BTW, was left over by some previously occupying army during some past war where you and your dad got buttfucked till you admitted your both gay and loved it!

    #2, It really is NOT that loud here!
    I have walked up and down and around MANY of the busiest Manhattan (NYC) streets in the early mornings, middle of the day, and at night, and I still do, and find it mostly very, very quiet here, especially when compared to many other busy cities I have been to in many other countries!
    Shit dummy!, If you thought it was noisy here, than your either just going by what you heard dubbed into the audio track of some stupid TV show or movie and are assuming it’s like that everywhere here, or you were in the deepest, darkest depths of Harlem where all the jungle monkeys are normally acting their color and being their typical noisy animalistic wilding selves! Fuck them dirty ass nig-nogs!

    #3, Umm, I guess YOU have NEVER EVER waked outside your mud hut and than had to wait for a traffic light to change so you can cross a street in your entire pathetic loser existence than?

    Here, it’s called normal everyday walking around with the packs of retarded, smelly tourists, like yourself!,

    Sure, you sometimes have to wait a few seconds for a light to change so you can cross a street and continue on, but, that shit happens in EVERY city in EVERY country all over the world that utilizes TRAFFIC LIGHTS!

    It’s not so different here than anywhere else as far as THAT goes, go visit London, Tokyo, Rio and tell me what the difference is!

    Same thing happens if you DRIVE in ANY major city with a population of 10 million people, you go on green, stop on red, and wait for green again! duh!

    So, we can all guess that in your former shit-hole country that you crawled out from under, you know, back where everyone has only a half a brain due to all that radiation and ebola poisoning and every guy is named Borat and woman is named Igor and just runs right out into the roads in front of moving cars like it’s fucking “Frogger” in hopes that they are missed by a bumper, or three, and actually makes it across alive, because traffic lamps have still yet to be invented or discovered there!

    #4, Most of the crowds that walk in packs, stop, and look at store window displays, than move on to some overpriced fly-by-night trendy shithole eatery with high prices, small shitty portions, and rude staff are where only YOU stupid smelly foreign tourist turds and dumb college fags go in NYC!

    We REAL NY’ers here know where the good affordable places to eat are at!

    We NEVER even notice advertising on subways or any shit in windows either, and we never walk in hordes and stop to look at shit!

    And MOST of us here never even use those sticky/stinky ass subways either!

    Those stinky ass roach-coaches are only intended for ex-con nigs and spics who aren’t allowed to drive, the greedy gooks who are too cheap to own a car, and to fleece and confuse you disease carrying idiotic tourists at $3 per ride and eventually get you morons to the highest priced tourist traps where those of us who actually live here never ever go, that way we don’t have to ever see, smell or hear half of you idiots!

    Nice to hear that you were gullible and went along with it too and spent spent spent!, Your money just recently repaved my block very nicely, thanks pal! LOL!

    And saying that it is expensive is only somewhat true, sure, somethings are very overpriced, but again, us real NY’ers avoid those spots,

    Here in NYC, we here CAN go out, have fun, drink, dance, eat, see a band or two and enjoy all of the real sights each and every night for a whopping $0!

    And that info IS a FACT! I did it for years when I was young and poor as hell and I know plenty of folk who still do it! There is even a TV show here called $9.99, it tells you that you CAN have a full days itinerary of places to go and see and eat, yet spend no more than, you guess it, $9.99!

    SO, you saying that you walked down only one street and spent $40 while doing nothing is due to your own stupidity and fault dumbass!

    Next time RESEARCH about a country/state/city where your going and find out as much as you can! And most tourist info IS FREE! Idiot!

    If you went and walked anywhere and spent $40 than your just flat out dumb!

    There are a million FREE places to go and take a date to out here each and every day!

    On certain days Zoo’s are FREE, chicks like walking around those, all city public parks and beaches ARE always FREE!

    All of us here all do it!

    But, like I said, your just DUMB!

    #5 NOT all relationships are “Sterile” here, and not all are only short-term and not all NYC women are on birth control, nor are they all “MY lifestyle only”, or “MY career comes first” minded yuppie dewshbags!

    Many of them work/have to work/are forced to work to support their fatherless bastard kids and have THAT on their mind, and also a man-hater chip on their shoulder and probably just weren’t into YOU!

    You probably dress and come off like the Steve Martin and Dan Akroyd’s “two wild and crazy” “Chech brothers” from “Saturday Night Live” fame!

    NO real woman here ever want’s an outta style foreign poo-pusher like THAT!

    You also must have been hanging out in the snooty yenta jew fag asshole neighborhoods, every city has one or two, like Seattle, Washington state, with all the selfish me-me-me, self-entitled, spoiled, self righteous, women empowered, college fascist Becky Rosenberg/Paula Goldstein dewshbag types who are NOT even real NYC born residents and aren’t into men, only their wallets, as if they even deserve one!, As hard as some of them pretend to be, they all come from some Jew Jersey shithole or Minnesota or Iowa shithole and lie about it!

    Those are the watered down, ball-less, live by what the Rabbi, JCC, TV and blogger fags tell them to do, mindless fags, much like yourself!

    Us REAL NY’ers are fun, friendly people who will party anytime and will fuck almost anything of the opposite sex that moves in a nanosecond!

    Queers and dykes are all shitfor brains rejects that all come from elsewhere!

    Always carry a condom in NYC!,

    Many chicks here, even the ones who would never deserve it due to being very fat, ugly, class-less or dumb, have been brought up on their gold digger moms mindless sense who teach them that they “Are a Princess” and will “meet a man with money to take care of them for life”, I have seen women I know instill that on their own poor kids who couldn’t get “Saved By The Bell’s” “Screech’s” pocket change!

    It’s a very bad/sour/turn-off attitude and unfortunately MANY, TOO MANY whores have it these days, but, it has it’s benefits, what I mean is that many chicks here, as smart as they try to sound from reading a women’s lib dyke magazine or two and a feminazi blog or two have no real education, no career, no skills, no talents, no abilities and naturally no job, which means NO health insurance, and so, are NOT on “the pill” cause they just can’t afford it!

    But that means they DO have plenty of time to party and fuck and most are mentally fucked up, which makes them easy to get in bed, or at least into a back alley for 5 minutes! LOL!

    And yeah, all them chicks here that you think are on birth control sure all seem to have an awful lot of unwanted babies out there, that we who live and work here all have to pay for, which is why NYC does have the most highest taxes on the planet!

    If you weren’t getting laid here and only finding those annoying-as-fuck career minded yuppie/preppie book-shop-cafe-yoga-vegetarian yenta yid snob phonies, than I think YOU are either too fuggly or stupid, have absolutely no game whatsoever, or you were just looking in all the wrong places and were probably in the village where the fake dykes hang out at, and they really dislike the cock, unlike your mom who loves it 24/7! LOL

    No wonder why you couldn’t get any pussy here!, Your just gay and attracted to dykes! LOL

    #6 Diversity! NO THANKS!

    We didn’t ask for it to be this way!

    Fuck that liberal gay ass P.C. bullshit too!

    And we certainly never get every other shitty countries BEST people, OH NO!

    We only ere get every other piece of shit countries retarded and ugly, illiterate and ignorant, psychotic reject pieces of shit that we don’t need here nor want here!

    Us REAL NY’ers absolutely HATE each and every filthy, stinky, smelly foreign turd who comes here and fucks it up! And NONE of them EVER try to assimilate either!

    Especially the viscous, murdering, raping, mugging, robbing, looting, disease carrying, germ spreading drunken smelly Mexicunt pieces of shit who all come here illegally and take over each and every neighborhood and get handed everything for free and never learn one single word of English!

    We HATE the filthy, no class, shit for brains sand niggers who all smell like someone shit straight into a flaming armpit filled with hot ass-cheese and peed it out with hot diarrhea onto a pile of rotting maggots, and yet them animals have the balls to hate everyone who isn’t a fellow shitskin muzzy turd!

    We all hate Asians here, mostly the filthy germ spreading chinks, the stuck up japs who think they are better than everyone and too good for everyone, and especially the greedy, money hungry unsociable Korean assholes!

    They are the WORST of all the gooks!
    We ALL despise the filthy Russians who have come here and really have shit it up, they all try to be tough guy wanna be mobsters while all scamming welfare and living in the city projects! I have a bro who owns a gourmet grocery shop/deli, all the most rude, uneducated, refuse to work or learn the language, sweatyass smelling fat scumbag Ruskies come in all the time, poorly wearing tons of cheap make up, fake gold, fake furs, mind you, while driving brand new Cadillac’s and acting like their shit don’t stink because they bought a nose job or new tits, all try to buy the most expensive wines, champagnes, caviar, cheeses, and all the other good expensive shit that’s in there, but, than get up to the register and all try to pay with fucking EBT (FOOD STAMP) cards! And it’s NEVER any of the really pretty, sweet Russian women either!

    We also HATE each and every single one of these disgusting Albanian pieces of shit! They only talk with and hang with their own kind, as all dirty foreign turds do, they refuse to assimilate, they NEVER go to one day of school, they walk each and every single street here in packs of 10-20-30, even 50 knocking on every door trying to force everyone on every block into selling them their homes, businesses, shops, buildings etc. at very low cut way below market value rates, just so that they can take over entire neighborhoods cheaply and move more of their piece of shit family on over here! And if you DON’T sell to them they WILL either burn you out or gang invade your house and just stab or shoot you to death!

    They ALL sell illegal street drugs, prescription drugs, un-taxed illegal smokes, guns, knives, stolen TV’s and electronics, babies and women! (It’s all very true! I witness that shit going on EVERY DAY here!)
    We HATE the murdering spic puerto rican shit stirring fags who are only out to cause trouble and act like their tough!, But we here all know that deep down they ARE all just punk asshole dick lickers on the down low who love cock and can’t ever fight one on one without a weapon!

    ALL spics ALL scam welfare, cheat the system and bitch when it isn’t all handed over to them pieces of shit for free! And they NEVER learn English! Oh don’t get me started, I could be here all day!


    Some I do actually feel for, the poor fucks who saw some half assed poorly dubbed USA film back home and were instantly brainwashed into thinking that it’s just all so fuckin’ great here, that whole “the roads are paved in gold in America” bullshit pipe dream crap!

    We here in Jew York ALL learn very quickly that if your last name is NOT Ginsburg/Bloomberg/Silverstein etc., you WON’T ever own it all (like they do) and will never get ahead, or at least break even, and will NEVER see any “gold”!

    There’s a fucking reason why the word JEW begins the word JEWELER!

    Fuck them greedy jew faggits too! They took over entire neighborhoods around mine back in the 60’s and 70’s, filled them only with more filthy jews, they keep everyone who isn’t a filthy kiddie molesting jew like they all are out and NEVER pay ONE cent in any taxes, yet expect the most police protection and tons of political favors and kickbacks and tax subsidized programs on earth!!

    They have the scam down to a science and you better believe that shit!

    They ALL claim to be Israeli or Canadian citizens to get out of paying a penny in U.S. tax, yet own it all here!

    You CAN’T name one newspaper, TV station, movie studio, magazine, radio station, large major corporate chain or jewelry store that is NOT own by a greedy jew faggit!, Well, except for the ONE shady shit corporate that IS now owned by the filthy spic Mexicunt drug cartel, “BIMBO”-who has snatched up everything from Wonder-bread/Drakes Cakes/Hostess snack cakes/Entenmann’s Cakes and hundreds of other former USA owned food, snack food, candy, ice cream and beverage manufacturers and closed hundreds of plants here in Jewmerica putting thousands out of work once they opened up shop in filthy Mexiblo, allowing disease carrying filthy germy spic faggits to make YOUR FOOD!

    But hey, just as long as the greedy jew owned and run government gets their “kickbacks” from it all it’s all made legal like on paper, no matter how many people are getting sick from the germs in the foods made on and by filthy foreign dirt! Remember folks, Yellow fever, Scarlet fever, Typhus, Typhoid, Meningitis, Collera, Ecoli, Ebola, SARS, and an entire shitload of other old diseases that were eradicated form U.S. soil over 100 years ago ARE back, thanks to all the filthy illegal Mexicunt, Russian, Albanian and Afrocan who sneak in and don’t get inoculated! What? You don’t believe me? well than, why doncha all just head on over to the U.S. center for disease and control’s own website and go read what IS public information and knowledge and go see the statistics on how bad the epidemics are getting and how close to being pandemic we really are!

    Than you CAN just go and read the Census bureau’s stats on when certain filthies started flocking on into the USA was and see the huge correlation between the two studies! Hope ya’ll enjoyed THAT “City Moment” shit, motherfuckers! LOL

    1. RooshIsDoosh September 11, 2015 at 2:28 pm

      Nice one bro! You really should be the U.S. President, instead of that lying, law breaking, ‘nana munchin’, monkey asswipe moron who bought his way in there now! Or at least become Trumps V.P.! You hit the nail right on the head in so many ways on so many subjects! You ARE the fucking KING of New York! Or as you called it “Jew York”! lmfao!

    2. CamelJockey September 11, 2015 at 4:25 pm

      Watch out now, we’ve got a bad ass over here!

    3. Roosh September 12, 2015 at 11:41 am

      TLDR: “I mostly agree with you, but I don’t want to admit it.”

      1. KansasBred78 September 16, 2015 at 9:43 am

        Actually, that is what I was thinking. Still, you should totally hire this guy(?) to do a few columns for Return of Kings; there would be nobody who writes quite like it (to put it mildly), and surely it wouldn’t repel your advertisers, uh…would it?!

    4. KansasBred78 September 16, 2015 at 9:41 am

      That post/response (?) of yours defies belief; if I heard it in person would probably be speechless! I couldn’t help but laugh out loud and be entertained, it is almost an art form of sorts and thus is really beyond criticism or even any kind of rebuttal. Just… Wow.

  37. Reason And Believing September 11, 2015 at 5:42 pm

    It’s a horrible place, just like LA , Boston, and Miami.
    To like it , you have to be shallow, indoctrinated and needy.

  38. Mike September 11, 2015 at 6:50 pm

    Friggin’ nailed it. I’m on year 4, 30 years old, and my one friend says it best – it’s the loneliest city of 8 million people you could ever live in. Best looking ass I’ve had but the flings are short and …bland.

  39. Invest September 17, 2015 at 7:08 pm

    Jew york city everything is about jewish interest and politics , LGBT, diversity, dominated by jews in finance and in law. The city is full with shit. The people think they the shit when majority are finished. Also a of fags listening to music and thinking they tough, they apparently never been out.

  40. horn September 19, 2015 at 12:40 pm

    Having spent most of my 20s-mid 30s in NYC, this is totally wrong in
    several areas. Yes, the garbage is more stinky in the summer, but you
    can go more than 2 blocks without smelling it.

    If you live above
    the 3rd floor, you stop hearing traffic in 2 days, and sirens in a
    week. I am a very light sleeper and moved to NYC 2x from a quiet area.
    You adapt incredibly fast.

    The ‘female drugs in the water’ is
    the dumbest thing you’ve ever written. Anyone who knows anything about
    the water in NYC is that 100% of it comes from the mountains 6 counties
    I worked with NYC Water Dept for a living for ~3 years but you
    can look it up, it’s well-known. NYC has the purest tap water of any
    big city in America, it has to because if something did get in the water
    supply it could sicken and kill ~20m people during the workweek or
    maybe more.

    Stopping 200x a day to walk? If you walked from the
    NYSE to Cathedral of St. John the Divine you wouldn’t stop 200x. But
    okay, sure.

    you don’t have the self-control to stop spending $40 every time you
    step outside, that’s on you. NYC is no different than any other walkable
    city, and has MUCH cheaper eats from Chinese to pizza. You can still
    get 2 slices and a drink for $1.99. Yes, even in midtown. Try that in
    your local suburbs. And who the hell reads the subway ads? Again, after a week you don’t even see them.

    are no shorter than any other city. The 10-1 ratio you mention seems
    fairly ludicrous, unless you are a guy out Gaming who wants that ratio.
    You can find a ‘good girl’ here faster than most other places *because*
    of the diversity, not in spite of it: Asian, Latina, country girl from Iowa or Long Island or PA. And many of them are not into the ‘going out scene’ and like hanging out for a quiet night – it is completely absurd for you to say otherwise after a couple of days. They will stay in, cook you a meal [yes!] and just enjoy your company while you read or just watch a movie or play a game.

    Yes, you can’t have friends without mutual interests: Again, that applies anywhere. But in NYC if you can’t find a mutual interest with at least ~50% of the guys around your age then you are either a total asshole or have no social skills. Things I’ve bonded over with strangers/coworkers/randoms my friends knew: Watching sports, playing sports, literature, Game, museums clubbing, music, art, travel, skiing, going to the beach, golf, politics, the markets, fashion, restaurants, checking out new bars, hanging out in Central Park.

    This came off as a total ‘concern troll’ post by Roosh. It’s fine not to like NYC – it is crowded, it is more expensive than living in Wroclaw, some women here are married to their careers [which is great for guys with game].

    But, overall, having lived in 4 major US cities and 1 famous college town, I’d say every young guy should live in NYC at least once. There’s always something to do, there are tons of women who are stunning and fit and well-dressed, you can’t beat the food or the museums or the variety of bars.

    You can go to a bar or lounge or etc and there will be 8/9s there that guys aren’t even talking to because they’re all focused on a 10 or have no game. It’s fish in a barrel. And they’re are significantly more datable girls than guys due to the amount of gay men.

    And people here are way more friendly than their reputation, esp if you’re new to town – people will give you their best insider tips and look out for you. People will help you on the subways when you have your ‘lost tourist’ look when you can’t figure out which stop your meeting is at today.

  41. Darius September 20, 2015 at 3:49 am

    Hahahaha you’re a fucking joke Roosh. You’re an Arab/Turkish/Iranian man who complains about diversity, yet you contribute to it just by being there.

    You go to Eastern Europe and fuck slavic women and complain about diversity yet you as an Arab contribute to diversity and multiculturalism, the two things you despise the most by just being there. That’s pathetic.

    Keep kissing these white supremacist asses and see where that takes you.

    1. Enro Rebels September 24, 2015 at 6:16 pm

      He is a living and breathing paradox. Too dumb to be taken seriously. I just visit here for laughs.

    2. Invest September 27, 2016 at 11:42 am

      To destroy your shitty logical fallacies. You are attacking the author not his argument so you can nullify his argument. Nice try.He is saying whites not everyone. Secondly iranians are not arabic nor semites are infact indo europeans farsi and persian . Shiah religion started as protest of suni invasion and always arabs especially saudis wahabist and turkey sunni and the rest. Shiah was counter revolutionof ottoman empire invasion and sunni religion.
      In iran are tge first churches on world along with iraq and there are nany orthodox Christians due roman invasions of previous empire.

  42. timothwc2 September 21, 2015 at 1:51 am

    Wow, those photos look exactly like ones taken from my birthplace, Hong Kong. You might as well be talking about my city.

  43. Rafiq Jennings September 21, 2015 at 9:46 am

    Roosh make valid points and I live in NYC. It’s a condense/congested area with many people vying for limited space and we are bombarded with many distractions (noise, advertisements, etc). However, one has to explore more of the city (outside of Times Square) as they are some cool areas here. And as for the smell, an early spring or late autumn visit would be best 😉

  44. ng85 September 25, 2015 at 1:56 am

    “If people love being herded from one grazing ground to the next, it’s no surprise that they also perform the same behavior with their lovers. If you live in New York, it’s impossible not to have a neverending string of casual relationships.”

    THIS. I’ve never had anything more than a fling/one-night stand with a city girl. In fact, my last relationship was my longest – I owe that to the fact that while I lived in NYC, the girl lived outside the city and would take the train in to see me. But then she moved to the city….And it was all over. We broke up within 3 months. The same thing happened with a previous girlfriend.

    You can’t love a girl who lives in a big city. And this is why I’m glad I discovered the manosphere before moving here, because had I been a needy blue piller who craved female validation then I’d be in for a world of hurt.

  45. matt September 28, 2015 at 1:50 am

    True, but… isn’t redundant to even acknowledge this? These aren’t “problems,” they’re just things that are part of the essence of New York, not something that can be solved like in other cities, because New York isn’t like other cities. It’s pointless to even point this out because it just comes with the package.
