New Yorkers: Can you be any more arrogant? Can you be any more stupid? Can you be any more self centered? Common sense says get a hybrid, a 4 cyl or take the train. But not New Yorkers. No, the bigger the crisis, the dumber they get.

Oh yes, I need to say more. Maybe New Yorkers are more educated and make more money than the rest of the nation. Your comment was just plain stupid.

Car sales are up because everyone on LI is wrecking the cars they already have. Soon insurance will be as much as the boros. Come on people...don't drive over lines and have head on collisions, turn your head before changing lanes and stop drinking!!! Although you make for some good pics on the "Accidents on Long Island" link.

You have to make more money in New York because of the cost of living.As far as education that's another issue.Most of the educated people that I grew up with in New York have moved elsewhere....Look at CNN moneyline and do a cost of living compare NY to any city state.

Anybody find this item on rising car sales on LI a little bit suspicious??? I am a mystery shopper and have visited dozens and dozens of LI car dealers since Jan 1,'08 and I can tell you for a fact that to a dealer their businesses are in the toilet. Newsdays main ad dollars are from auto advertising....display and classified - would you expect Tom to say anything else. Come on Tom...tell the truth.

New Yorkers make more money and pay more in taxes. Additionally, the cost of living is higher in NY.

I graduated from Syosset High School in 1980,... the vast majority of my classmates left Long Island as it was just too expensive.

BTW I make an excellent salary and I think Long Island is too overpriced.

You smart. They do this at Christmas too. They say sales are up to stimulate those who stay home. Gee everybody is shopping why aren't I? Then the numbers come out. It is all hype!
Newsday also put out that garbage article last month stating how real estate sales in April were up from March...gee there is some earth shattering news! This is most likely just as you say...advertising!!

You only need a 4th grade education to read the paper...but a college education to weed through all the crap to get to the real news.

New Yorkers like Rapper 50 cent, can afford to have a high priced suburban " Crib" for the woman they 'Shack-Up' with, so what's another SUV ? O'course when she torches the house cause 50 cent threw her A__ Out, that could slow the new car sales, especially if the insurance company gets wind of her torchin' it. Long Island is just a different sorta place, compared to the rest of the country.

It didn't look like the garage was empty in the photo's of the fire. The accelerant must have run out before she reached the garage.

The only major difference is the cost of housing after that things are not that much different, food, autos, clothing, etc. Throw in the fact that your salary doubles in the Northeast, assuming you are lucky enough to find a decent job where you live (I ain't talkin about a Wal Mart job) and the difference is clear. There is a reason that 20 million people live in the tri state area, when you retire from here you can buy Port St Lucie. I just got back from Florida, there are NO jobs. People were selling their homes for 75 grand and they were lined up 5 and 6 in a row with for sale signs. There is nothing down there but minimum wage jobs.

If the rest of the world hates us that might be a good thing, its called envy. That is the same reason why the rest of the country hates New York as can be evidenced by your prior posts. BTW tell us about the massive mass transit system you have in Norwood PA. It must save huge amounts of fuel by getting all those millions of people of the roads.

Hey Mr. Mathmatician, when the rest of the world hates us, they resort to flying planes into our buildings. Or did you miss 9-11?

If a bully pisses off a runt long enough, that runt will eventually find a way to kill the bully.
