- Living in New York City has its advantages and disadvantages, but for many of the city’s residents, the pros vastly outweigh the cons.
- Author Audrey Noble asked 14 millennial New Yorkers why they think NYC is the best city in the world.
Since I was born and raised in Los Angeles but live in New York City, people often ask me which city I think is better. My answer, without any hesitation, is New York City.
I’ve been living here for a little over four years now, and even despite all the hardships, rejections, and heartbreaks I’ve experienced, moving more than 3,000 miles away from home is still the best decision I’ve ever made.
The infectious energy, the incredible people who reside here, and the once-in-a-lifetime experiences make NYC a magical place. But don’t just take my word for it.
For perspective, I asked 14 other millennial New Yorkers what they love about the city:
You can live a lifetime in a day
Living in the city affords one the opportunity to live a lifetime in a day. From a morning run in Central Park, to some of the best food imaginable in the afternoon, to an evening watching world-class theater and comedy. New York really can be like the movies. There is always something calling if you just say ‚yes.‘

Access to all the cultural events you could want
Concerts, sports, shows — you can experience in one weekend what people elsewhere experience in a year.
— Alex, 32
The fun doesn’t stop at night
New York is the city that never sleeps. You could be out at any hour of the night and there’s always something to do.
