Philadelphia offers more than Houston can daydream about. Philly has more cultural institutions per capita than any other city. Plus, for the OP, living in New York gives you the chance to see Philly as it's 2 hrs. away and a cheap bus ticket will do.

Why does it have to be Philly vs Houston? Both cities provide all the amenities the people living their need and want. It's not a contest. If someone has something positive to say about Houston it doesn't take anything away from Philly.

I don't know why these Philly posters bought up Philly anyways. This thread is about NYC vs Houston.

Isn't a city basically an urban environment?

Also stop hating on Philly. It has always been among the top 5 largest cities since the beginning of US history. As far as city population is concerned, what Houston has done, Philly did already. The city had over 2 million when Houston was just a small Texas city back in 1950.

It's not a Philly vs. Houston. I was comparing Houston to the other largest cities, but for some reason that other poster felt the need to single out Philly and make a big deal about it.

Am I the only one a little jealous of OP? Must be nice to be single, young, and with a huge prospective income.

I would choose NYC in your position. You're young and single and there really is no substitute for NYC anywhere.

However for some to imply that Houston is boring and that the OP would stand out, absolutely ridiculous. There is tons to do in Houston and it's very ethnically diverse.
