Hello Everyone,

I just have a general question about the USA's east coast, is it getting too crowed over there? I ask because there is places that have more reasonable costs of living and have a variety of apartments, homes etc that aren't even full because there is not enough people in those cities, or the cities are spread enough where they can build more apartments and homes if needed but on the east coast they really can't because there isn't enough room too, in certain cities. I've always wanted to live on the east coast but now I'm not so sure, they say as you get older your likes and dislikes change (which I agree with) and I think that is what is happening to me.

Thank you, all for your replies.

I don't think the east coast is crowded at all, but vibrant and dynamic. It's the best region in the country IMO.

Your mileage may vary though. Coming from a state like Oregon which has a low population density, the east coast may seem crowded to you.

So you think there is enough homes and apartments for people who want to move there now and for the next generation? In the northeastern parts of the country, like New York, Washington, DC, Boston.

Probably, but I was raised in Colorado where everything is spread out and I like it that way. Oregon is just where I currently live. But thank you for your answer.

That is true, I'm just thinking about the other half of the country that has more jobs then people.

The east coast is not "crowded". In the cities sure but outside the metro areas it can be as rural as the south.
The only reason the east coast has a lot of people is because of the high density within their well established cities. Outside of that and the suburbs its farmland, hills, lakes, streams, and waterfalls everywhere

Thank you, for answering. I absolutely agree with your answer. Just to let everyone know, I was just wondering! Because I care about this country and wanted to know.

Look at a map of Northern Maine up around the crown and you will see that it is as sparsely populated as many remote parts of the West. Most of it is undeveloped forests and lakes and unincorporated land, some used for timber cutting. There are also many parts of Vermont and Upstate New York that are very rural. A huge swath of the most northern part of New York is conservation land that's bigger than Rhode Island called Adirondack Park. There is plenty of open space if that's what you are looking for, you just have to get off the I-95 corridor.

Too crowded? No such thing. Maybe in certain cities along the East Coast but not the whole thing.

It will be too crowded when 200-story highrise residential buildings line every block from DC to Boston. Even then, I'd love to live there.
