Most big cosmopolitan cities in East Asia shit on American cities. Hong Kong, Tokyo, Taipei, and even Osaka all piss and shit on American cities in just about every way, except for maybe convenience (as an American English speaker) and pricing in some cases.

Shanghai is great. I don't know any other word to describe it, besides that.

It's nice that I can go out at night and come back home at three in the morning, and not worry about getting mugged or murdered on the street.

I like the fact that Shanghai still has some elements of its old history, combined with the new--so it makes the city a very interesting place to see.

The reason why these mega metropolises are the way they are is based on population size and also expedient bureaucracy when it comes to construction. NY is overregulated and gentrified. This means any project takes forever to finish and business is heavily restricted.

Look at that freedom towers project. It took a ridiculous amount of time to throw that stupid thing up.

Ironically how my parents moved from Shanghai to NYC back in the late 1980s.

NYC is probably due for a correction at some point. It's way too developed and the job supply doesn't meet the demand. None of it seems to make sense with the price of property and rent increases either. How can someone even survive in the service industry in that city is beyond me.

I agree, Repatriate!

The city is too overpriced and the cost-of-living is too high to justify that many people living in such a congested place. Plus, the only people who can live comfortably in that city are politicians, NWO banksters, UN politicians, Wall Street Jew scum, and corporate CEOs and managers; everyone else, forget it...

My parents moved out of there about a year ago to some place where the cost of living is relatively lower, in the southern part of the US. I was going to ask my parents when they will return to Shanghai but I don't know if I will get a positive response. Especially since I'm considering teaching science in an international school in Shanghai someday.

Cities are just another name for Scams, Psychopaths and Elite Slavery. When people wake up to reality aka New York, they create another delusion called Shanghai before it was Rome in ancient days.

All the glitter is just to attract the moth to its termination. Its damm expensive to live in Shanghai for a common man, you have to live in the outskirts and then travel through hell called Metro.

Just because its better than NY in looks does not change what it represents, slavery for millions. I was offered a Job in Shanghai few years back, was all excited and then reality check and never left India. What good looking sky scrappers from the bund could do.... when you can't live in one?

Most of the jobs, offices are in Pudong but its damm expensive and you have to live 50 miles away from it and then travel for couple of hours back and forth, you don't save anything in the end. A decent condo is 7k+ if you want to see a real difference in life style compared to back home.

You can't save if you live in Shanghai

Don't believe in Hype ..Its just Psycopaths way of attracting slavery. The devil is in the details. With Psychopaths who rule these cities...everything comes with a price...

Shanghai 'more expensive' than New York

I have a friend living there now. She had to move to the Bronx and rent a small room in a Chinese community to survive. That's the only way to afford it if you're not rich.

I'm sure most people who work in NYC live outside of it. Some live across the harbor in New Jersey.

I just hope that The Bronx stays the way that it is. Latinos have a strong fort hold on that borough, and it's the least-gentrified. I hope it stays that way because the TPTB corrupted downtown Brooklyn now. It has become more expensive than Manhattan now! :shock:

Per bold well you know what to do right?

(1) Prove that you're not a typical pompously-self-entitled myopically-cultured American
(2) Learn the idioms and dialects there to an intermediate level. Read (1) again.

C'mon you stupid American....you don't think being an American means they have to acquiesce to you in their own country now do you?
I know that the sun never sets on the British Empire nor the American one, but you know.

BTW you're only offended if you choose not to or that you cannot use the other 35 - 60 percent of your non-utilized brain.

Shanghai has no "old history" from Chinese standards. Shanghai was just a sleepy town which boomed after the Opium Wars.

If you want a city with "old history" go look at Hangzhou, Shaoxing, Ningbo, Suzhou, and Nanjing.

Well, yes, compared to those other cities, Shanghai and Shenzhen are nothing in comparison.
