I think I'm addicted to CD thread creating, I can't stop!
Anyways... Which city do u prefer, Philadelphia or Boston? Their both very nice and pretty cities with nice old buildings.
To tell you the truth, I don't know hardly anything about theese cities, I've only seen Philadelphia on TV or seen pictures of the city on the computer, and I've only been in Boston airport... LoL.
Here's their skyline's:

Phiaelladeilphiea.


Boston.

They both have their advantages and disadvantages. Philadelphia would be less expensive. But I prefer Boston's transit. I like them both but lean a bit toward Boston (used to be a resident of that great town).

Houston!

I like both, it is too hard to vote. I lived in Philly, and only visited Boston.

Since Boston's in my Top 5, I have to go with Boston. I love its big city feel, yet has this great "compactness". If I moved from NJ, this is where I'd go.

I'm from the Philly area, and went to school in Boston for a bit, and while I'm a HUGE Sox fan, Boston just doesn't compare. I enjoy being there, but Philly is just something else.

Well, Philadelphia is closer to NYC - I'm living in the sweet spot just between them, around the Princeton area, from which I can easily commute to clients in both. I've also been spending a lot of time in New Hampshire lately (i.e. the Free State Project), but Boston just doesn't interest me. On paper it should, but in reality it doesn't...
