New York metro is what I most prefer out of the three. It is the largest and has amazing suburbs lushed with green trees.

Miami metro....too flat and uninteresting topography.
Los Angeles metro...great scenery, but too dense and not as "green" as NY's metro.

I wish NYC metro was not too green.... I wish we had palm trees like Miami and LA!

The NY metro.. maybe because i live in it
But on a serious not; The NYC metro has beaches, mountains, diversity, jobs, good food and all sorts of history.

I know LA has all this too, but there is just something about it that doesn't attract me to LA as much.

Miami... I don't even give a second thought about it.

Suburbs with lots of trees and rolling hills are far more pleasant to me than those suburbs of the south and west which lack trees because many suburbs are relatively new.

Default Why change an area into something it isn't?

If you want to live in a place with palm trees, move to a subtropical area where they are native to.

I voted for NY. Would not want to live in Miami, or LA. Maybe northern Ca. would be ok for me.

Are you serious? The concrete jungle referred as New York has trees? Anyway since I already live in LA I choose Ny metro.

There are houses with trees and lawns in the other 4 boroughs of NYC. Again, NYC is not just Manhattan.
