My dream is to have a winter home in either Miami, Puerto Rico or Saint Martin. As much as I love my city NYC, I really do hate winters.

If you love the tropical look with the prodigious array of palm trees Miami is blessed with along with the Gulf Stream waters of Biscayne Bay and the beautiful waters of the Atlantic Ocean along with clean air along with beautiful Ocean Drives Art Deco area withits many cafes,I prefer this by along shot over NYC.

The girls are out in NYC during the summer -- when they aren't at the beach (mostly after work). Yes, you have to keep in mind that the city tends to shut down on the weekends because people are traveling and/or at their shore homes. When it gets BRUTALLY hot I feel like people tend to stay inside because its pretty unbearable on the street.

Also add into the fact that the subway stations are like ovens during the summer and the city tends to smell the worst during this time.

NYC does have those pesky heatwaves, caused by urban heat island effect. The whole eastcoast is a steambath really.

Because we're talking summertime, I think it's NYC no contest. Factor in the fact that you're less into a party city and more into exploring and it's even more obvious no matter what time of the year.

You can try airbnb (now that the chaos has settled) or various temp housing lists. Or maybe craigslist.

I'd also consider Chicago..depends what you are seeking but Chicago can offer nearly everything NYC does during the summer. Probably cheaper/easier to find housing too.

What the whole east coast doesn't have in summer is the tropical sun. That combined with the humidity made that season unbearable. Well, that and being in the last trimester of a pregnancy.

As usual another wrong post about New York from freshlakes. New York City never shuts down on any day.

See, you were in your 3rd trimester of pregnancy, so your judgment was cloudy.

I've had Chicago in the back of my mind, I think I might have to look into it. But, I hear Chicago's kinda dangerous.
