The 15 Advantages New Yorkers Have Over Californians
It’s no secret that the most driven, dedicated and aggressive people in the world reside right in our own backyard — New York City. The big apple just breeds different kind of people who always get what they want and do whatever it takes to get it.
Especially compared to their West Coast counterparts in California (mainly in Los Angeles), New Yorkers often outwork and outperform their competition. Some of it has to do with the fact that they live in one of the chillest environments in the country with some of the best weed, women and weather you can find. But most of it has to do with the fact that they don’t know any better.
