Newark, NY or Newark, OH?
Tough one for me... Newark, OH holds the edge in better weather and larger population. Newark, NY seems more in line with what I'm looking for culturally and is close to a number of places of interest (Rochester, Syracuse, Lake Ontario, Finger Lakes).

I give the edge to Newark, NY because it's less familiar and more intriguing.

Watertown, SD or Watertown, NY?

I think either would be pretty nice. I'll go with Olympia to be close to a major city, the sound, and the Olympic Peninsula.

Woodstock, NY or Woodstock, VT?

Woodstock, VT. The architecture & scenery looks nicer.

How about these 2 neighborhoods that rappers grew up in:
Germantown, Philadelphia or Highbridge, Bronx?

I've already chosen: Germantown, Philadelphia.

It's my home, and it has loads of historic character and people who care about the place a great deal. Beautiful twin Colonial, Dutch Colonial and bungalow homes on tree-lined streets share space with blocks of housing built for working folk. Save for City Island, I haven't seen a neighborhood anywhere in the Bronx that has this character: they're far more uniform and made largely of apartment blocks (well, they used to be).

Cross-state jump ball time: Pittsburgh or Philadelphia?

Philadelphia. Pittsburgh is decent & has a growing food scene, job scene, very low cost of living, & has nice scenery, but overall I'd definitely choose Philadelphia. I prefer Philadelphia's urban nature, transit, culture, history, food scene, metro, & location over Pittsburgh. Philadelphia is one of my favorite top 10 U.S. Cities & compared to other cities with great transit systems, large metros, & strong culture, it's cost of living is on the lower end.

2 College Towns in the Big 10:
College Park, MD or New Brunswick, NJ?
