Makes you think.
I know. Calcutta = so much more appealing than the bay area. We really are missing out in California.

As much as I love visiting Chicago I have to give the edge to New York when it comes to culture and food. Quality of life is a toss up because if you have the means $$, New York is a great quality of life. Both cities are congested, swarmed with traffic, polluted, cold. New York just takes alot longer to get from one side of downtown to the other.

False comparison. That's a logical fallacy. Try to avoid those when making a point.
