It's interesting how everyone has a different idea of heaven. Would anyone care to explain why you feel that your choice for "heaven" is heaven on earth to you?

Yes.

You think of being in isolated booines as being heaven??

Is it even possible to relax amid the hustle and bustle of a big city?
Yes.

I live in a pretty nice place, surrounded by palm trees, that's about five miles from gorgeous beaches, and one mile from largely unmolested hills that overlook the LA basin. I walk out my front door, make a right, make another right, walk three blocks, and am on one of the most famous streets in the US, where I can see absolutely gorgeous women from all over the world walking around wearing summer clothes in January.

I can find nearly every cuisine in the world withing a radius if a couple miles. I can find nearly every type of shopping one cares to imagin in about the same. I can do everything from going to a poetry reading and eating Asian fusion that crushes what you can find in most major American or international cities, to hiking in solitude through a high desert mountain in about the same distance, time, and effort.

So yes: it is absolutely possible. It's quite easy and effortless, IMHO.

Nowhere; everywhere has its virtues and flaws (some more than others).

Bingo.

I have never experienced the type of energy that NYC has to offer anywhere else in the US...or the world for that matter.

I will be moving to Manhattan in about a year and a half. Nothing less than two years.

I prefer smaller cities but love having easy access to cultural activities such as Museums, Art Galleries, Opera, Concerts, Theatre but I also need access to scenic beauty and wildlife etc..

For me places in the US I would be quite happy to move to :
Boston area ( Cape Ann to the North or Mid Cape) and a large proportion of New England
San Francisco area / Marin County in particular or Rockridge/Berkeley
Portland OR
Pacific Grove/Monterey

Being born and raised in Connecticut, I do have to say that the New England states do have a pretty peaceful feeling about them.
