Default Re: smackdown: mcwhorter v. treme

I don't think I understand your point.

There are two aspects here. One is the expected love that anyone could have for the place where they were born, raised or where they live. It's obvious that people, in a very subjective way, which we all have, would find their own city to be particularly attractive for all kinds of reasons. But, we can agree that the main reason is the subjectivity that is carried in those kinds of assessments.

The other aspect is that there is a possibility that certain cities are truly extraordinary, and that people from all kinds of places will agree on that. The attractiveness can be in culture, architecture, history, population and many other features that when mixed in a particularly favorable way, gives the place that special enchantment.

If you recognize the second aspect as possible, why would you be surprised that New York has that quality?
