Strange how that works.

NY for the city
CT for Fairfield countys beautiful homes
NJ for being a knockoff NY and NYs sidekick

All three are better then Nebraska though

I was unaware I or anyone else mentioned the South in such a way in this thread or anywhere recently that you would have seen.

I think you're lost, bud.

NY has skiing, whitewater, wine country, mountains, big lakes. What CT and NJ have in regards to these features pales in comparison.

NY has NYC. Northeast NJ and Southwest CT are in its orbit and for all intents and purposes would be far less populated or relevant w/o NYC.

I have family in NJ in the NYC commuting area and have visited a lot. Great area.

I haven't been to upstate NY, but as as skier that might sway me.

I would vote NY without reservation, but NJ and CT both are underrated and overlooked when not being unfairly denigrated.

NY holds a *major* lead against CT/NJ.

I wouldn't want to live in NY outside the metro region. Meanwhile, half of NJ IS in the metro region. You can probably see where I'd rather live if my name didn't give it away...

I wonder how many people are thinking of the city when they see "New York."

This is what you get when you give the wildly uninformed a platform to spew their simplistic, self reassuring & ultimately skewed version of reality. Ahhhh, the Internets.

I'm sure Rochester played a *major* role in the results to this point.
