Wisconsin vs New York City

I was going to post about all the food we ate while on vacation, but I haven’t figured out how I want to lay that blog post out. Comment below if you want to see a post about food. Otherwise, I might just skip it. Instead, I’m going to compare Wisconsin and New York City.


We did not have a car in New York City. We didn’t want the stress of navigating and dealing with all the traffic. But we did notice some things.

Drivers in New York City are more courteous on the road than Wisconsinites are. Hear me out. Yes, they honk way more out east than in the midwest. And they will call you out if you’re making poor decisions on the road. But drivers in the city allow each other to switch lanes and get where they need to be. In Wisconsin, if you don’t pay attention, or you try and do something stupid, we will make you wait

It also takes a long time to get a short distance in New York City. Which is odd to me, but I get that there are a lot of people trying to get places.


New York truly is the city that never sleeps. Granted, we weren’t out that late, but it seemed like the later in the day, the more traffic there was. We did notice, that places didn’t open until later in the morning. I remember saying on more than one occasion “daylight was burning.”

Because they are out all night, their coffee is a lot stronger than I’m used to. And also not as sweet as I would have liked.

Green Space

Wisconsin has a lot more green space than New York City does. Obviously. But I think New York has to be more creative with how they display theirs. Central Park was one giant show of creativity.

We also noticed trees growing on the roofs or balconies of many skyscrapers too. My husband and I wondered how the trees can have deep enough roots to survive. If anyone knows please comment below.

I’ve got one or two more posts about New York City. Unless you guys are sick of reading them. Then I can switch to something else. Let me know what you think.
