That's what you call living on top of the world. Sheesh.
Uh, most people?

Why don't you just propose to NYC while you are at it..... geez. Not everybody thinks like you do

I envy nobody else's location other than maybe LA because of the proximity to mountains

Count me as another who does not envy such things, ughhh.
The only thing I envy is lack of easy access to nice sand beaches, but it's not worth giving up what I do have in order to get that.

Well, I find anywhere else in the U.S. outside of Manhattan to be boring to live in.

(Or at least very close to Manhattan, if nothing else)

You can make your own fun anywhere. Maybe the problem is you and not places other than Manhattan.

Being in Nebraska, I envy the folks back home in VA that have the mountains and the ocean all within easy access. Here we've got corn and cows eight hours in either direction!

As a Floridian I envy states where farmers markets consist of farmers selling food they produce versus our flea markets which are inexplicably called farmers markets where more often than not there aren't any real farmers (some guy might show up with some produce he bought at the produce distribution center). I miss creative independent restaurants with great food in lieu of chain restaurant-o-rama. I miss a generally well-educated populace with varied interests versus well, you know...Flori-duh. But I can wear short sleeve shirts, shorts and flip flops 11 months out of 12!

As an NYer, I envy people in Western cities such as Denver, Seattle, and Los Angeles for the access to incredible outdoor recreation. I also envy Chicago for being insanely clean for such a large city.

ditto. At least Milwaukee has lake michigan and trees, higher population, paved roads, more state parks and natural areas.

Out here it's just farmland, with a few state parks here and there but it's a 30-60 mile drive to get to them or any other city for that matter.
