But if you moved here...wait, we shouldn't use this thread to disparage other people and places...I won't stoop to that.

I would move to New York, Toronto, or maybe Philadelphia if Chicago ceased to exist . Most probably Toronto assuming if Canada let me in.

I'm already in SoCal in a great position so at the moment it's not needed.

Same. It wouldn't hurt if it were also Seattle of 25 years ago, and cheap.


I'd go back to Southern CA if it snowed there too, and if it were at least reasonable COL-wise (I just can't justify it).

Most everywhere else that I've completely written off is for multiple reasons, and everywhere else I haven't, I can deal with their shortcomings.

I'd move to:

NYC, if I could buy a brownstone in the West Village.
Chicago, if it wasn't for the winters.
Montreal, if it wasn't for the winters.
Honolulu, if it wasn't so isolated.

It was somewhat authentic as "the city different" in the 1970s...now it is largely a caricature of itself...and tourism plays a huge part in that transformation. I still like it but don't choose to live there. They say "you can't go home again" so the lesson might be to grab it as soon as you can because that thing that you find appealing might not last.

I'd live in San Francisco if it wasn't so insanely expensive (I know that doesn't hold much weight coming from LA lol).

I'd live in NYC if it wasn't so cold for a large portion of the year.

But who am I kidding, if I got a job offer in one of those two cities and I was still single with no huge obligations, I would move there in a heartbeat - even though it would mean leaving my beloved LA

+8 and counting. Guess I’m not the only one who thinks Texas is an absolute joke.

But, a cheap joke!
