Which is a better place to live for a single person? I have to move from NYC, and I want to be in a big city. I want to which place has a better bar scene, things to do and overall the most city feel.

I love visiting New Orleans but I don't think I'd want to live there. Outside of the tourism-heavy areas near the French Quarter and Bourbon Street, New Orleans is struggling. You'd get much more of the city atmosphere you're looking for in Cleveland.

Uptown? Not true.

I would pick New Orleans but I would move to Cleveland too. New Orleans has a big city feel, and definitely competes with Cleveland. I'm willing to bet there are more bars and I'm sure there's more bars per capita.

If you could be a bit more specific as to what amenities you want out of a city other than bars and "things to do", folks will have a better chance of helping you.

Budget? Is public transit important? Hobbies you have that might be more prevalent in one city than another? etc etc

I'm sorry ... bars make a city?

And it's not exactly like Cleveland is lacking in that category.

Mark Twain once said "In America, there is New York, New Orleans, and San Francisco. Everything else is Cleveland."

Enough said.

But in all seriousness, Cleveland may be a quaint place to live but it surely does not have the same cultural amenities as New Orleans. Neighborhoods all across the city are getting better each day as well as the downtown core. We have museums, bars and restaurants (that stay open late mind you), a certain joie de vivre that will not be found in Cleveland. I think coming from NYC you will be more at home in New Orleans.

Moving almost anywhere else from NYC is a serious down-grade IMO
But if I had to choose, New Orleans. Cleveland is basically Detroit's little brother.

Maybe if you left bourbon street you would see the real city....

Also, Cleveland = Rust Belt.

The man likes bars, true but he specifically asked which bar scene is better.
