Rockville MD or White Plains NY?
White Plains, I wouldn't say no to living in Westchester County and the new Tappan Zee bridge is a big improvement for the area.

Hendersonville because I prefer NC and close to Asheville.


Clifton Park, NY or West Hartford, CT?

Clifton Park. I much prefer Upstate NY to any part of CT.

Pittsburgh, PA or Portland, ME?

Portland, ME is actually a city I plan to eventually live in part-time, I think it is really that special. Pittsburgh is nice but I do not have any such plans. Yet, if I had to choose one city to live in full-time, Pittsburgh would be the one. Much more of a well-rounded city for obvious reasons.

Indianapolis v Jacksonville

This one is tough. I went to school in Indiana and have no intention in returning to the Midwest, particularly Indiana. Indianapolis is underrated to an extent. Regardless, it is not my cup of tea. Florida is also not my cup of tea as a place to live, but at least it has some outdoor recreation advantages, like access to water and outdoor weather year-round.
So, Jacksonville.

Chicago, IL or Philadelphia, PA?

Chicago, IL or Philadelphia, PA?
Closer than it might seem, IMO.

Both cities have great food scenes, though Chicago's remains on a plane above Philadelphia's. They both have very lively city centers. Chicago has a dynamite lakefront with the best urban beaches in the country (edited to add: yeah, I just slighted Venice Beach. So there); Philadelphia has its Schuylkill riverside, surrounded by the park that protected the early city's water supply and connected to what may be the best urban wilds in the country. Their cultural institutions are on par with each other. Chicago's rapid transit network is more extensive; Philly's regional rail network, denser and more frequent throughout the day.

Both cities are legendary for their corrupt politics. Both also have winter, which is a positive in my book. But I will allow that I prefer merely cold to frostbitten. On that last score, Philadelphia by a hair.

I may have asked this already, this game has been going on for so long:

Kansas City or St. Louis?

Kansas City. An underrated city/metro, IMO.

Phoenix, AZ or Tampa, FL?

Kansas City. It is a better city overall.

Fresno, CA or Wilmington, DE?

Phoenix as Arizona has a more compatible vibe for me, sometimes and I miss living in the Southwest.

Both places have their share of hard knocks, but I like the location of Wilmington, DE so I could make the right neighborhood work there.


Philadelphia or Boston?

Philadelphia. Lower cost of living and I'm more familiar with Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

New Orleans, LA or San Antonio, TX?
