Maybe Atlanta would fit the bill. It's not SF or NYC, but it''s warm and a major city.

Why don't you just go back to NY, you seem to like it so much. I know of a little burb on the Seine that has an urbane population not interested in hiking or camping, has a wonderful Metro, and could kick San Francisco's #%$ in the beauty department, but something tells me you're not ready for Paris.

Forget the weather and natural beauty, Toronto is a terrific alternative to NY imo as far as arts without losing all the aspects of a vibrant city.

Houston has the largest arts scene in the South. This city is virtually un-Texan in character. I threw it in there in case you want something different like a Chicago. But if you don't want to go so far, there's L.A. that is only dwarfed by New York's art.

as far as natural beauty, San Francisco makes mincemeat out of Paris and all of its suburbs.
