I'd love to live in NYC if I could afford it. (Which I couldn't, lol)

Oh, Fuck the Yanks and their fans most of all.
This is a beautiful summary!

I could not agree with MrBrau anymore.

I love Manhattan - if you could live in comfort in Manhattan...great. DO NOT LEAVE Manhattan (I will now refer to Manhattan as NYC...not to be confused with the greater part of NYC, including the other Borroughs: Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, although you can survive in Brooklyn too) though.

NYC is a world of its own. Not really part of America, more part of the planet earth (due to its diversity). Yet, off of the Island, it becomes crappy. Again, my opinion. I am not fond of "the people" of the "greater area" and their "I am more important than the poor sap driving/standing/walking next to me."

I think it is a nice place to visit. It may be a nice place to live for a few years - especially if you don't mind remaining single forever.

Anyway. I end my rant.

I think DC or Seattle or Chicago or CINCY for that matter, may be better.

Haven't we discussed this though?

Now that's not encouraging...I don't need more things working against me.

But it's so true! I lived in NYC for 6 years, and wound up meeting my bride-to-be in my hometown in CT after I left! You can get laid in NYC, but you won't find love.

Ok, so I think I'm applying for jobs there...not letting a little thing like being alone my whole life threaten me.
Ok, so this is very broad, but does anyone who has had experience with both nyc and either dc, seattle, chicago, or san francisco have a preference? like one over the other? Ok, I should probably have just done a new thread...

I Haven't been to Seattle yet...everyone tells me I have to check it out. It is one of my priorities to check out Seattle to see if it is somewhere I would like to move eventually. The traffic is bad. Not sure about public transit.

I love Chicago. As you know, I live two hours south of Chicago. It is just as urban as SF or LA or Boston or any other major city, but, it also has a comfortable Midwest feel to it. It is not as intense as NYC, but just as urban. Chicago Just a side note...Chicago concert goers are notoriously lousy. I didn't believe it until the last few club shows I have gone to. It seems as if they go to see the bands, but very few get intoit. Flame me fellow FIBs. Chicago people are friendly, and I don't think you would have troubles making new friends (as well as your interference friends would be willing to help, maybe ). GREAT public transit system.

San Fran is also a great place (My opinion). For my, I think it would be the most ideal weather situation. It is also known as one of the most expensive areas in the country. I am not sure about how easy it is to meet new people in SF. I am not sure about public transit (BART?).

I also like DC. I see a lot of opportunity in DC (job wise). Northern Va. is growing soooo fast, and is one of the world's major tech hubs...nevermind the federal government job opportunities. It is also a great cultural area. Another DC advantage...It is on the East Coast:Four hours from NYC, 1 1/2 to Philly, 8+ to Boston...etc. You also know people there. Good public transit system.

NYC speaks for itself. I love it and hate it. I think it is tough to meet new people in NYC. Good concert goers...The best public tranist system in the US.

You CAN'T go wrong with any of these cities in my mind.
