New York is a nice place to visit, but you do NOT want to live here. Take it from someone who's lived here for 19 years.

Word. It does get tiring living here.

But I've been content with the weather lately. This summer wasn't nearly as bad as last summer.

-Crime rate is high.

-Traffic is horrible. There is always construction going on somewhere. They do it in the middle of the day.

-Kids are constantly binge drinking and getting high on prescription drugs.

-The school system is horrible.

-Drivers make up their own rules.

Dallas can have it's moments, but sometimes I want to pack up and leave.

We have to have the worst traffic (Besides L.A.).

I'm constantly surounded by yuppies.

The heat here makes you want to drink a beer again ( but I still do ).

And don't get me started on some of the cops that work in this city.

But if you have just little bit of game, and I mean just a little bit,...
there is no reason why you shouldn't be getting laid. It's not that
hard to find a good looking slut.

find me a major city in the US where these aren't a problem.

I love the diversity, there's always something to do and the city never sleeps.

Seriously, why does New York City smell like gnarly ass? Like I thought was a pretty cool place....but it seriously smelled rank in almost every area I visited. It smells exactly like Mexico City....and then the other other place that might put a fight for worse smelling would be downtown Paris...which smells like piss. I've pretty much only lived in areas where the upkeep on the cities are top notch(Utah; Japan) so it shocked me a bit when I was in NYC.

I would search on the web if you are interested. The good places to live are Portland, West Linn, Lake Oswego, Beaverton, Eugene, and some others I can't think of. Don't live in Gresham. I grew up there and it's turned into gang land. I had to move.

I'm actually electrical engineering so it might be a real possibility right now. I was planning a trip to portland this summer but i guess it will have to wait till next summer when i graduate. Your Condo set up sounds pretty nice, you will not get that price in orange county or a nice part of L.A. Thanks for the information.

The best place to live is in what used to be Eastern Germany, where it is estimated 88% Atheist/Agnostic!! Talk about heaven on Earth!!

Texas is seriously the best for job opportunities...the court is VERY PRO-BUSINESS and near DFW, one of the main international airports.

I still say it's the Houston suburban area. What does everyone else think?

if you're from the Chi City like me, i'd have to say the south. i'm educated, a fast talker, and got game. i could make money in a flash around those slow southerners who are poorly educated. plus, the weather is a plus.

the west is giong to have a major water shortage within the next 20 years. the price for water in places like Nevada, Arizona, California, ect. will be through the roof!

the East Coast is filled with rude, overbearing, stupid people. no one would want to move there.

the midwest has a lot of flat, boring land. however, they've got some underrated cities sprinkled throughout like minneapolis and kansas city.
