    for a 20ish year old, those things don't matter. Like at all. And those are things that absolutely separate MN from most coastal areas. Now, there are a lot of factors going the other way haha, I just mean the reasons I am here, mean nothing to your current life situation.
    Nah I know, I was just busting your balls.

    Cost of living? Super important, so is the standard of living.

    Education? I mean, Iím close to graduating so doesnít mean much. I know youíre referring to children but I donít know if I want kids, nonetheless can have them lol. Let me be in a relationship for longer than 6 weeks before I think about that.

    Crime rates? Also not something that concerns me in particular. Again a lot of that has to do with children. Being in a melting pot, Iíd want to stay in a melting pot. I know a lot of the drug dealers, scammers, gang members, etc around me. Theyíre decent people and donít intimidate me. Granted, Iíve been jumped and robbed before but Iím generally not concerned about crime.

    The type of person I am - which likely has to do with the fact that I was born and raised in Brooklyn, tells me that Iíd be best off staying in a diverse city somewhere along the coasts. I canít see myself affording to live in NYC but I see myself moving to PA or NJ at some point in my life.
    If Trump can become president with no political background then I don't understand why I need a resumť

    I hear ya man. That is all I meant, of course you wouldn't be interested in the Midwest, though I think you would actually dig Minneapolis more than you think, and I am sure you would like Chicago. But if I were young, single, no kids, and got to do it all over again, my *** would be in the NYC area for sure.

    But, I have 2 young kids, and was able to get an amazing home for under 500k, in a school district that is amazing, in a beautiful area surrounded by lakes, trails, and nature, and get to live near my sister and her family. And I know I couldn't get that on the coast. So it's all what your needs are really

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I was gonna post the same. Chicago is ****in dope, not as big as nyc but def has the same city feel, also imo way better vibe. Has a partial west coast vibe to it, at least on the north side.

    Z you in a dope *** place tho, I been to nyc a few times and each time I just cant get over how ****in huge that city is. You can find EVERYTHING in that city, at any time a day or night.

    Enjoy it and take advantage of it.

    That's (and I'm pretty sure you can't argue this because it's the definition of it) ignorant.

    I lived in both Chicago and NYC and I think they are both world class cities.

    I have a theory on the whole argument about the two places... Hell even when it comes down to hot dogs or Pizza. There is a fundamental difference in vibe between the two places. New York is all talk... Move fast... next thing next thing next thing. The standard foods are designed to be eaten on the go... The hot dogs with the weird little sauce they put on in... The foldable pizza. It's all designed to hep you not miss out on all the cool **** in town...

    Chicago... slower... I had to explain to all my friends from chicago the rules about riding a ****ing escalator. Chicago is real... they will punch you in the face. but everything is designed to slow you down... bring you together with people. You can't eat a ****ing real chicago hot dog without sitting the **** down. Everything involves a knife and fork. Slow down.... Slow Down... Slow Down... and eat this sausage.

    That is the thing about NYC though... when I first lived there I didn't have a car so 4 5 times a year I hoped on the metro north, stopped in poughkeepsie and rented a car to go to the Adirondacks or the finger lakes... Seriously that state has the best of both.

    where near NYC can I get a 5/4, 3500 sq ft home with 3 car garage, and 1/2 acre lot, for $465k? Inside a renowned school district? With 3 large lakes within 3 miles (one of which is at the end of my block)?

    I only mean, we take the trade offs man. The culture, activity, and awesomeness of being near NYC would be great. But we would also need to cram into a small place probably, and schools may be tough to come by unless you are willing to pay. But, we would make it work, I am simply defending where I live to justify to myself why I am here haha. Normal human reaction...

    Seriously, if I were able to get a job paying about double my salary, I would be out in NYC tomorrow.

    Probably.

    You donít stick a city boy in the country and expect him to thrive. Iím already in a great city, I donít think other cities have much that NY doesnít (that I would be interested in)

    I have been to everyone of the lower 48 states more than a couple times and none of them hold a candle to California. I live now in between NYC and Boston, which is great but wouldnt be like living in Cali.
