That is what NYers mistakenly believe to be culture.You missed the point entirely. Of course it has culture. Take all the offense you want, NY is an amalgam consumerist 24-7 economic hub (used to be) with many amenities but also many issues. My focus is that many outsiders are coming in, or transients to "make it". Oh yeah, sounds just like ... you guessed it, New York. Except not as loud, rude or as bad an accent, currently.
