Don't worry, me too (except I live in Toronto, not NYC)!
I was born here but grew up elsewhere, just visiting family here on vacations, and I always loved it and wanted to live here. Finally moved here last fall (I only applied to universities here and in Montreal - I applied based on the city, not the school/programme - bad, I know!
), and I just love Toronto and living here (except for the fact that everything is SO expensive here).
That said, though, I haven't been to very many cities. I think the only others I've been to are Quebec City, Buffalo, St. Louis, Edmonton and Calgary. I also really loved Quebec City, it's beautiful, the rest didn't do much for me (though I did like the insanely low cost of living in St. Louis!). I'm sure there are some cities that could give Toronto a run for its money (Montreal, NYC, San Francisco, lots of European cities, etc.), I just haven't been to them (yet - one day soon, hopefully).
