More people would rather live in NYC or the NYC area. That is not debatable, although I'm not surprised because you tend to say some silly things. Why do you think its a lot more expensive in the tri state area? Better schools, better public transit, job security, a lot more amenities and let's not forget the crime rate is a lot lower. Weather can only go so far and winters aren't so bad in NYC either.... It's not New England or upstate New York.

But it's no secret a lot of New Yorkers want to move here, I guess part of the reason is our weather. But there is many places with great weather, so it's some sort of combination of weather, beaches, and our city amenities. Even South Beach is laid out in a grid like fashion similar to Manhattan. Since I'm an iOS developer and fairly connected to iOS developers across the USA, I get so many emails from New Yorkers usually going like this : I make 150k in NYC, want to move to Miami what can I expect?

And I usually have to tell them, stay in NYC unless you're good enough to go remote for a company willing to pay you a comparable wage. Though tech is starting to kick off here, it has a long long way to go.
The scenery, the way women dress all year, the culture is why I'll take Miami over a lot of cities.

Look this a opinionated site. I just gave my opinion no need to bash my opinion. NYC is nice. But I could not live there.

Haha hey Sherlock, that's by city limits.

By metro area, the Bay Area has 5,460 such people which is the 4th largest concentration of UHNWIs in the world and Miami isnt even ranked.

Haha nope, it's called coming here to play.
Yes, that's what secondary and retirement homes are for.

San Francisco: Primary City
Miami: Secondary City

I'm simply repeating what you already said. No need to be upset.

Never said you couldn't state your opinion. It was just wrong, the most desirable places are the most expensive.

There are so many perfect looking women from all over the USA and the world. It can be intoxicating, I take it for granted though. When I go anywhere else, it's not "Miami women are so beautiful", it's "why are women in X so dumpy?" then I realize it's not so much that except that women here are just more beautiful. A lot come here to be models, etc.

When it comes to luxury apartments, Miami is 10 most expensive in the world, along with Los Angeles, NYC, and San Francisco and also cities like Hong Kong, Singapore, etc. Remember the overall market for apartments is not the same. There is a thinner middle class in Miami than most US cities, even compared to Manhattan, we manage to have a smaller middle class.

If we're talking about the US. The second modeling city is Los Angeles...

It depends on what kind of modeling you're doing. Here is absolutely the best for swim suit modeling. But anyways it doesn't matter, I'm from Los Angeles and been to NYC more times than anyone non New Yorker, our women are more beautiful here. So something is going on.
