This applies to Chicago too. And Denver. And London. And just about every ski town (only stating the places I’ve lived). NYC is no special case, despite every New Yorker probably thinking it is :)
Other claims city-folk make:
- Only in _____. Variant: God must love (sports team) — That’s why sunsets/etc are (color/s).
- If you don’t like the weather, wait _____ minutes
- We’re all here cuz we’re not all there.
Just to name a few. Good article though!
