Ok but here's the thing. You asked what city would people rather live in. If people choose Houston, they choose Houston. Why should it matter if it has as many votes as the next city. It's not a popularity contest.

L.A. doesn't have an NFL team!
It's a great place to live no doubt, but it is so big that it takes a long time to get anywhere.

San Fran is great too but getting into the city is not easy, it is really congested and the weather is not what you think it is. It is also home to huge numbers of homeless and runaways.

I agree. But, I think its kind of odd that a place like Dallas only has (1) and then Houston (7) when they are similiar

Well, maybe to people in certain areas of the country. I know of quite a bit of people from NYC/Long Island who moved back here from Houston.

You don't think there maybe some out there that did the same thing in reverse?

I said in a previous post how not many people at all move to Long Island from outside the metro area. It's too expensive. Just like how you don't see many people from Houston (with a very low COL) moving to SF (where the COL is higher than metro NY).

While Houston may not have as much as NYC, it still has quite a lot. It's an enjoyable city and the weather is unbeatable 9 months out of the year.

I wish you well in Long Island, and I know I'll do well in Houston.

All of the cities on the list are the only cities that I would ever enjoy living so I have respect for Houston.

I just find it wierd that Houston has 8 votes while Miami and Phoenix have zero. Also, Dallas only has 1, which is alot like Houston

Saying Dallas is a lot like Houston is like saying Philadelphia is a lot like Boston. Sure there are similarities, but there are also some major differences.
