Hello everyone,

Between NYC and Phoenix, which one of these two cities would you prefer for the weather and climate? And also which one of these two cities do you feel would suit you better for trying to establish a meaningful career? What I mean by that is where do you feel would you have the best chance to become a valuable citizen of this country and feel that you could accomplish all your career goals? NYC maybe? Or both?

Better weather: Phoenix
Career: probably Phoenix because NYC has so much competition and the money you make doesn't go as far

Phoenix is really quite different from NYC & it is difficult to compare the two cities. New York is the primal city of America so it is almost like comparing Phoenix to Yuma [huge size difference]. The climate of both cities is also extremely different. Mild and sunny winters make Phoenix a destination for "snow birds" from the northern states\ Canada. New York has a cold winter w/ occasional snow storms. But anyone considering a move to Phoenix has to understand that Arizona is probably the hottest state during summer [only below sea level areas of the California desert are hotter]. New York has a warm & humid summer that requires A\C but not every day or night like Phoenix.

Well I ALWAYS consider the amount of competition, if I send in my resume in both NYC and Phoenix, chances of me getting the job in Phoenix is higher because there will be less people applying due to a smaller population.

Having said that, I go with Phoenix, plus I like having a good house with a yard, and possibly a pool, and I won't be over paying for it in Phoenix.

I'm not treating it like one.
Phoenix is the 5th largest city in our country and in the top 10 metropolitan areas as well. It deserves sufficient respect from posters on this thread.

Well, finally there are some replies to this thread. First of all, I am not planning on moving to either of these two cities anytime soon. I just wanted to get some feedback and opinions about these two cities. As to which city has better weather, well the thing is that weather preference is something that is subjective. 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.
