I had to escape after 3 years.
Well said. I think that applies to every city in America.

Not a city guy, eh?

I've lived in so so many places...I think I loved em all, come to think of it, (KC,MO was
my absolute favorite city for a list of reasons)...
Boston is it's own special city of hell...the Herald and The Globe joke about the obvious...I even
find books out here in CO about how bad Boston is to live in....so many great things...
for the first year of wonderment.

Anywhere on Long Island turns into a whole Other Hell of too many rats crowded
in a cage...I have seen normal people turn into mean, nasty people in front of me...
Some sort of "edging out the other guy syndrome" takes over their minds...got outta there
after 3 years also. (But still nothing like the streets of Boston.)

Must say any place in Texas and most of Florida, Minnesota and CO have just the nicest
folks...some kind of Southern and Midwestern congeniality. Others have commented
to me that they notice it, also.
Puts a smile on my face just thinking of running errands today...in NY and Boston?
It's like preparing for battle in traffic or the checkout line!!! I mean it.
And it doesn't matter how congenial YOU are.

Sorry, my blood pressure is going up recalling...ptsd, still.

Not so much in love with the big cities now. Everyone's in a hurry. Once upon a time, I was too but I prefer a slower pace now. A day-trip every now and then is fine but I'll leave all the hustle and bustle to the youngsters.

Do people actually read these things and say "oh wow, this must be true"

I can see it now on C-D, "my city is happier than yours.. just read MSN"

I don't get how these lists come, and I don't get how people find them stimulating.

I like threads like this because of the personal tidbits they inspire from posters who either have lived in those areas or live there now.
