I'm jealous of the sunshine, palm trees, and large pools in Phoenix and San Diego (pacific ocean is too cold for me) come winter months in the NE.

From Conneticut...I wouldn't say envy I mean when I can could always move there. However, I do like New England. Only downside is the winter. However, further north and deeper you go into New England less traffic. With my State better beaches and lower taxes be a plus. Again further north you go beaches get better and taxes get lower.

Overall I'm happy living in Atlanta but it is nice to see waterfronts in the city center (rivers, lakes, or oceans) when I travel to other places, including many elsewhere in the South. Fortunately we do have water features in the metro area (Chattahoochee River, Lakes Allatoona and Lanier, etc.), but they are situated away from the city's downtown.

Living in Southern California many years ago, I was jealous of other places that had a more central location for travel and easy accessibility to open spaces other than the desert and ocean.

Nowhere is perfect and every location is lacking in some desirable attributes.

I'm the same and envy large skylines situated on a large body of water. I also envy Salt Lake city for having mountains so integrated with in the city. When I lived in Florida and Chicago I had envy for rolling hills.

I LOVED being able to order pretty much anything I wanted and getting it delivered from my grandmother's apartment in Brooklyn. There were lots of places to eat within walking distance and I enjoyed that.

Regarding to the comment about NYC's Mexican being better than L.A.'s... That's hilarious. No, no, NO. Just no. NYC is great at a lot of things, but overall, Mexican food isn't one of those things.

This kind of thing is subjective...but if you like Mexico City and Puebla style food, NYC has a lot of it. I'm sure LA does too, but it's probably not the norm.

There are at least 500,000 Mexicans in NYC, why would it be hard to believe that there is good Mexican food there?

Nothing really.

We desperately need affordable housing units for poor and middle class households, but other than that, we're good.
