I lived in Queens for eight years so I know what snobs Manhattanites can be. But I never imagined four boroughs would turn their noses up at the fifth.
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. –Hey, New York, where’s the love?
That’s what Staten Islanders will be wondering when they hear that nobody from the other boroughs thinks it’s worth traveling to the outermost borough to date someone.
Web dating site Match.com surveyed more than 1,000 city singles on their dating preferences, and discovered that just 8 percent of singles from Manhattan, the Bronx and Queens would be willing to make the trek here to go out on a date.
