I love where I live because the majority of people care about one another and it's the safest place I have ever lived. No high population and no high crime. Oh yeah and it's really, really inexpensive live.

Just graduated college and moved back to the parents house. Crushing college debt and a poor economy led me back here.

I live in Chicago because I took an internship here a summer ago and fell in love with the city. I like the faster pace, things to do, food, and unique neighborhoods throughout the city.

I live in Kauai b/c I wanted to move to Hawaii. I studied Japanese and did not want to move to Japan, so Hawaii was a good medium. My company placed me here.

I was born and raised here in New York. And since I'm taking a semester off from school (I go to Tulane University down in New Orleans, Louisiana), it's pretty logical that I'd come home to assess the things going on in my life.

Plus, it's arguably the most amazing city in the world.

how about you?
i live in the town i live in because it makes me happy. low traffic,easy access to major hospitals and airports, great variety of shopping,great schools,religiously diverse, very "green" and has a strong emphasis on values.

Great question! I live here because it is where I grew up and I never had the guts to move. I have always wanted to live on the east coast, closer to NYC my very favorite city. Not happy here but it's where I will be until my daughter graduates.

I'm living in the armpit they call Pittston, PA because that's where my parents decided to live. At age 21 I'm counting down the months until I'm finally financially secure enough to move out on my own---preferably to a more liberal, educated, and accepting area where gays aren't regarded as "the plague."

One word, FAMILY. St. Louis is fine, but if it wasn't for 90% of my family being here, I'd be out west.
