“New York City—The greatest country in the world”

"New York City—The greatest country in the world” is a slogan on T-shirts and other gift items. “New York City, the greatest country in the world” has been cited in print since at least 2006, but it appears that the gift items began to be manufactured in 2008.

As I’ve stated/ranted in this space before, one of the most annoying parts about living in Los Angeles is the barrage of people who just invaded the West Coast from New York City (the-greatest-country-in-the-world) and simply cannot stop letting go of their lifestyle there.
