Thumbs up Juneau, Alaska vs. Yonkers, New York

I've narrowed my future move down to these two cities. Discuss.

One is extremely isolated, the other is right outside of New York City.

I am more interested in your reasoning for such a choice as one is the extreme opposite of the other. Mid life crisis?

Well, let's see: one's in Alaska, the other's in New York. Not a hard choice at all. Go with Alaska, unless you like the bigger crowds, terrible socialist-nanny-state laws, higher pollution levels and higher taxes of NY. Not that Juneau is cheap or as little populated as I'd prefer personally, but it's a mile above NY...

Go with New York, unless you like toatle iscolation, unfriendly people, nothing to do in the town, cloudy skys or high priced goods. Not that New York is cheap or as largely populated as id prefer personally, But a mile Above Alaska...

Haha just kidding

LOL I'm the opposite, I bought land in one of the least densely populated parts of the Interior of Alaska. Stay away people...

Yonkers, of course, has more urban amenities. You will find endless social and job opportunities since Yonkers borders the largest city in the country.

But if you like skiing year-round, hunting, hiking, etc., Juneau will be your place. But you can always travel up to the Catskills or the Adirondacks north of NYC to hike, hunt, go rafting, boat in the lakes, boat around the New York Harbor or Manhattan, boat in the ocean, go to the beach, and be in the middle of the largest metropolitan area in the country.

What do you like to do? Do you like sports? Music? Wandering city streets? Hunting? Hiking? etc...
