California has one of the highest average property tax rates in the country, with only nine states levying higher property taxes.

California's median income is $78,973 per year, so the median yearly property tax paid by California residents amounts to approximately % of their yearly income. California is ranked 15th of the 50 states for property taxes as a percentage of median income."

Again you are not listening, "Hello McFly, Hello?"

Look at SoFla numbers, we are not talking Spring Hill or the cheap parts with no jobs.

Greater Tampa Bay is 4.5 mil(larger than metro SD). Never see any graffiti everywhere I drive. I probably counted less than 10 instances past 10 yrs, removed immediately (which is what I like about this area..it's clean). But still, INMO South FL has a lot less grit than the large cities in CA.

I do have a "disdain" for SOME people from NYC, but not all mainly people from Long Island, but again not all. Your comments and beliefs further reinforce why NY's in general are not well favored in SoFla among many, I heard a lot of negative comments from natives when I lived here about the worse bunch and NY was always the top of the list.

The level of entitlement and obnoxious attitude shine brightly and if anyone has issues with "Assimilating" then take off that NY Yankees hat and stop saying "Fuggedaboutit".

Move along and slice my deli meat paper thin and hand me a sample to eat with my dirty hands while touching that bacteria ridden shopping cart at Publix.
Thank you for clarifying your position. With so many New York transplants in South Florida I am sure that those from anywhere else would be intimidated by the sheer number of NY transplants and their effect on the area in general.

I do not wear, nor do I own, a NY Yankees cap, but I do have a small NY Yankees logo decal on the rear window of my truck. Directly underneath that is a decal logo of the Florida Gators football team. I used to have "Orlando Solar Bears" put it dried up.

The custom of Publix handing a customer the first slice at the deli counter is a move to ensure the customer is happy with the thickness of the cut and the quality of the product. Corrections can be quickly made to avoid waste of product and the time of the clerk. The slice is handed to the customer on a piece of wax paper. I personally make use of the hand sanitizer and use a wipe on the handle of the shopping cart. In fact I never fold down the kiddie seat. I have never used the term "fuggedaboutit" in place of "for get about it" nor have I been to "Thoity Thoid and Thoid" though I have said "hole da door" while running down the steps at a subway station.

I am pleased to know that you do not have a disdain for all of the people from NYC but only a segment of us. We are a different sort of people and sometimes terribly misunderstood.

Relax, have an egg cream and a bagel with a schmear.

I was comparing County to County, but the Greater San Diego MSA is 3.3 mil as of 2015, Tampa Bay MSA is only around 2.975 mil.

Not even including San Diego is also a part of the San Diego Tijuna MSA which is also nearly 4.9mil

Not sure where you are getting "4.5 mil" from? I can tack on Orange County and LA, since nearly 60% of CA's population is in SoCal.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Diego%E2%80%93Tijuana

Also forgot to add, since moving here I rarely see cop cars or a heavy police presence, occasional San Diego County Sheriff, CHP and local Police but nothing at all like what I saw living in SoFla. While crime is everywhere, Flakka and Bath Salt usage is unheard of on the news as compared in SoFla. I don't see people Flakka trippin on the streets. The "Gritty parts" of a lot of cities are prevalent in many all over the place.

'A 2012 estimate shows the Tampa Bay area population to have 4,310,524 people and a 2017 projection of 4,536,854 people.[16]'

Metro Tampa is Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco(about 3 mil pop.).. Greater Tampa Bay extends in 4 other counties(practically connected/continuous development)

Tijuana is in a different country..

Yet the 2010 census says that Tampa had a metro population of 2.8 million. Not even the fastest growing metros grow that fast. Why do you like to use blown up estimates instead of official numbers? There is absolutely no way Tampa added 1.5 million people in less than 2 years.

A good point was we all got exposed to different cuisines and traditions. Ive celebrated , Junkonoo, Carnival, Epihany, Pesach, Hanukkah and many others. Being invited to a friends home for eating, partying, story telling and learning about the world. Experiences I will never forget.

We thought "West Side Story" to be a ridiculous separation of people because of their nationality.

I learned a variety of cuss words to!

White bread people are so gimp
That's great. But south FL,is not a great place imo to live and raise a family ... In general. I attribute that to the people and the mentality. Otoh, I can think of other large areas where it's more homogenous and ppl seem to be better people, have less issues, and are actually happy there.

I would say it depends on where in S. FL. 30 years ago I said I would never live south of Ft. Pierce.

Of course you have to attribute it to the people. Its not the shrubbery that makes a place.

Sure, homogeny creates a Stepford Wives world. Everybody is just like everyone else. B O R I N G and
D U L L.

People never learn how to interact with anybody but their own.

Point still stands. Greater Tampa is not 4.5 million. Come on.
