The ups include the amazing natural beauty, the ability to live in one of the top cities in the World (New York City), and the amazing amount of kind-hearted people who would do anything to help you out.
Of course with every upside, there is a downside and if you ask anyone what they don't like about living in New York, chances are they will give you one of the answers down below.
Check out the Top 5 reasons people hate living in New York.
Taxes - New York State is one of the most taxed states in the country and this is the biggest complaint that people have living in the state.
Weather - Summers in New York are amazing and early fall might be the prettiest in the world, but it is winter that drags down the state. Having four of the Top Cities in snowfall is not ideal.
Roads - It seems that every road in New York is full of potholes or they are quickly falling apart. The only people that love the roads in New York are Auto body shop owners.
Politicians - I mean everyone complains about politicians but it seems that New York politicians get in the way more trouble than the rest of the country.
Taxes - Yep..the taxes are so high here in New York, that it makes the list twice! Taxes are the biggest reason most people leave New York.
The reason that you still find so many people living in New York is that the ups outweigh the downs for many people making New York a great place to live.
