Please feel free to elaborate on the subject.
How can one compare a city to an entire state? This thread makes my head hurt, honestly.

I am tired of beaches, sunny days and tropical lifestyle. I want snow, great coffee shops (of course Puerto Rican coffee is the best in the world), scarfs, walkable places full of culture and history. I like PR but it is a boring place here and the people is not very friendly. Crime rate and cost of living (utilities, gas, goods, electronic s, etc., higher than NYC) in PR are up above the clouds

Lol, you can not compare a city with an entire state but you can choose any place/city in a state and compare it with the cities on the list.

This may sound weird, I am Puerto Rican but I don't like to live in Puerto Rican communities or places with lots of Puerto Ricans. I like the american lifestyle.

Ok, so I will say because of walkability and snow you're left with Boston, DC/NOVA, Richmond, and maybe Charleston (though the snow is quite rare, it gets a boost since you seek history)

I would choose NOVA since it's slightly cheaper than DC or Richmond for some really cool, walkable areas with historic charm but on a small scale.
