Some people love warm/hot weather, others love 4 season climates. I have not visited either PHX or NYC yet but I will be visiting New York City in the summer of 2010 If you are a hard worker and dedicated, it is possible to have a good career in either city. This is America, where it is possible to become what you want to become.
What weather do you like?

They are answering for personal preference, what they feel about each city, and how they view each city.
I simply answered in a uniform motion, that despite more variation for job options are available in NYC but competition for applications and interviews are more fierce there as well.

That is the great thing about our country...variety and diversity. Both NYC and Phoenix (like any other city) offers different things for different people. Why should each city be a carbon copy of the others? Both of these cities take on many transplants. I know many people here in AZ who thoroughly enjoy NYC, and I've met many people from NYC who thoroughly enjoy Phoenix.

Case Closed.

NYC for weather. I like 4 seasons and hate heat.
Career wise I could take either. In my field I'd have the same opportunities in either city.

NYC, based on all of your questions. But personally, DC probably suits me best in terms of career aspirations and job security.

NYC for weather and careers. I like all four seasons and the career fields in NYC are endless.

I'd have to go with Phoenix. I love NYC, but it is too expensive. I know salaries are higher, but I think they'd have to be 3 times higher than in Phoenix in order to have the same lifestyle. I especially can't imagine living in NYC while trying to pay off large student loans. Phoenix is a very affordable city, and even on a smaller salary I still think I would have a nicer place to live, more spending money, and be able to pay off my loans quicker.

Better weather is Phoenix, duh lol jk. NYC is going to have a lot more going on overall and a lot more resources but Phoenix is good for young graduates and is a top city for new graduates looking for employment. Each city has good and bad depending on what you like. Its really a personal preference.
