I moved to NJ from Portland, OR and summer humidity is very annoying. I also have mild asthma, which makes it worse. Is there any place that is not as bad on the East or am I f#cked?
I heard Maine is not too bad, but I am not trying to live there. Is Boston bad too?

Humidty is everywhere in the east. It seems a little dryer in northern and western New England...... Western Mass and Vermont, but that may be an illusion. It gets worse as you go south or closer to the ocean.

Albany may be the best bet in terms of being a little bit dryer and location. Out of the major Upstate NY cities/areas they average less snow in the winter too. There may be other places that fit what you are looking for better though.

NONE of the major cities on the east coast have low humidity. East coast is humidity central (in the summertime).

Be prepared to sweat like a hog wherever you go. :-)

Probably Philadelphia is worse. Philly is on two rivers and gets the ocean humidity in the summer. It's swampy by nature nearby. NYC at least always has a lot of wind to blow it out.

Read about the 1793 Yellow Fever Epidemic in Philadelphia sometime. 5000 people died, and the city was a complete mess. There was gridlock in the streets because of the funeral processions that couldn't get by each other. One doctor's journal gives a clue as to part of the reason for the epidemic, mentioning that there were an extraordinary number of mosquitos that year coming from the wet areas. No one knew about germs back then or the fact that mosquitos could pass them around.

Come dry out in the desert, your skin will be like leather after a summer or two.

Does it have to be a major city? I think as long as you stay in-land, away from the coast it'll be better. It won't be dry, just better. Someone recommended up-state NY, which may be a good choice.
