Massachusetts by a large margin. It's got that whole yankee, New England vibe that New York state doesn't.

Mass as a state, NY for the best city. Either way though, win win.

New York is more expensive. Both areas have good towns and bad towns. Have you considered CT, right in between?

Can Mass compare to Texas in what way? Texas and Massachusetts are almost as opposite as they come.

The biggest difference as I see it is that Mass is democratic and NYS with the exception of the area immediately around NYC is republican - you can take it from there.

That's a hard one. Of course NYC gives NY state a huge rep, but NY also has other great cities throughout the state...

I'm going to have to go with NY state because of the big amount of diversity in everything including its people, land, and social class.

Kudos to MA as well.

NY because it's my home. I wouldn't mind living in eastern Mass by Boston though, it's a nice area.
