I think the real kicker for me would be lattitude. I don't think I could handle those short, almost nonexistent days at the extreme northerly lattitude of Stockholm in winter. NYC, without a doubt.

I'm sure Sthlm has slightly more snow than NYC, and it stays longer.

Well, it's the same here. You come home to work in the dark, because the longest day here, the sun set at 4:30 PM in NYC. People usually come home between 5 - 7.
And for example in London, the shortest day is 7.5 hrs daylight, so only 1.5 hrs longer than in Sthlm.

Low to moderate.
Summers are comfortable, so no humid summers in Europe
