The biggest advantage of NYC over California (with the notable exception of San Francisco) is the great public transportation system. One doesn't have to drive everywhere.
Otherwise, the weather in California in general is much better than in NYC and NY state.

They say "oh you guys have so much smog and oh my god the earthquakes". As if they don't have smog and there going to get an earthquake. New York is On or near a fault line which lets face it will eventually go off. And they are screw@d because of all the big buildings. Sorry for all the negativity but it just really upsets me.
I lived in NYC and would agree this is the general stereotype of Californians. Also Californians say "like" too much and own like 3 cars per person.

Im from the Bay Area but moved back east.

I find people out west provincial. And when I told folks in NY I was from California, people weren't impressed or had a strong opinion / stereotype on Californians. New Yorkers are used to being a melting pot in a small space.

I'd take NY any day. Especially in winter. Ice skating in the park or on the rare blizzard, cross country skiing in the city.. brilliant, the rare chance you can do it
