People can have different experiences in New York City—it's just what you make of it. The environment can be overwhelming for students, as the atmosphere takes a lot of getting used to. There are millions of people who shuffle back and forth to work during the week, thousands of tourists taking pictures, and a large amount of homeless people sleeping on the sidewalk and begging for food and money. New York City is also a huge set for movies and television shows, and it has a lot of history, too. It would be an understatement to say that New York City has something to offer everyone.
