Or if San Diego or Los Angeles had the urban landscape and public transit of Chicago that would be really cool too; I like my hills, canyons, mountains and ocean. My friend who i grew up with in the Bay Area and went to college with in San Diego moved to Chicago almost a year ago for really no good reason and she loves it, says the people are great and she seems to like the change of seasons. I'm looking forward to visiting her soon and checking out one of America's largest and greatest cities....

If you take out the earthquakes, heck yeah! I wouldnt want that urban landscape in a earthquake-prone region. There are trillions of tons of steel in downtown Chicago, imagine all that coming down with the million+ people working in them?

haha, true I didn't really think about that! Even though high rises are actually some of the safest structures to be in an earthquake b/c they can flex, at least the ones they build here b/c of strong codes, that is still a lot of glass that has the potential to break and fall to the street. During the 89 quake I know that's how some people got injured in downtown SF. Okay then leave out LA and put Chicago where SD is, San Diego has a much lower earthquake risk b/c it's far from the San Andreas fault.

I have to say that I do not think that anything compares to a life lived well on the Hamptons! Even a summer rental on the east end of Long Island is like balm for the soul...
