NYC has four distinct seasons (Very warm to hot & humid summers / Cold winters / Chilly to warm spring and fall). Moderate rainfall throughout the year and still plenty of sunshine.



LA has dry and wet seasons (Dry period last from May - Oct which is warm to hot & dry / Wet season lasts from Nov through Apr which is mild, to warm and somewhat wet). Plenty of sunshine throughout the year and low annual rainfall.


Some people prefer four seasons, while others might prefer warm and sunny weather year-round.

I voted for NYC.

In the winter I like to see snow and have all 4 seasons.

There really isn't a "wet" season in LA. It's more like there's a season where it never rains and is sunny every day, and a season where it will almost never rain and is sunny almost every day.

Yes, but it's still called wet season, even though it only rains for few days a month during that period.

La doesn't really have a wet season. More like two seasons- a summer and a spring.

New York all day for me.

I'd rather have a Houston summer and a Minneapolis winter than have no seasons at all.

liking "4 seasons" is a concept made up by people that aren't lucky enough to have good weather...deal with it
