I'll start off by saying that I have love/hate relationship with NYC. As much as I like the buildings, lights, diversity of people, and the ability to go almost anywhere through public transportation, there are other things I'm not too fond of. My biggest issues with NYC are the cost of living and transportation, it is way overcrowded. I would like to move somewhere (east coast preferred) that maintains that city/urban lifestyle but isn't so excessive. It also needs to have reliable public transportation as I am not a fan of owning and maintaining a car (prefer to rent one if necessary). Does such a place exist? I'm up for a new adventure anyway...

What is your housing limit? Do you want to live in an apartment or would you consider housing?

I'd much rather live in an apartment but I wouldn't rule out housing...

Which I guess also brings the question of weather. What's your preference on weather? Hot? Cold? Dry? Is humidity a factor?

Boston or philly

Not many places with public transit good enough where you can get by without a car.
