I lived near Chicago and near Philly, but never in the city limits. In fact, this is the first time I've lived within the city limits of any city, but Williamsport is only a small city. I'd love to live in a big city sometime though!

Yes, I live in the actual city limits of Los Angeles, California. Three miles from downtown. Only temporarily for the school year though.

I don't think there's that much of a difference between western Nassau county and Queens. People keep saying Nassau is the new Queens, and Suffolk is the new Nassau.

True. But the area I border is very different. The corner store on the border tends to have a lot of "undesirables" hanging around, 2 blocks down by where I live the stores have no loiters. The housing styles change. Queens tends those red or green color metal things that hang over the front door. Don't know how to describe them.

It's just a different area in my opinion.

Well if you're talking about Manhasset and Great Neck, then yeah, that's pretty different from Queens. But towns like Valley Stream, New hyde park, those are very similar to Queens.

There were a few condo developments in Galveston that were hardly touched. Thanks to being built BETTER than code.

I want to steal more of New Orleans chefs to open restaurants in Texas! Yum...

I'd really like to take a drive down there one weekend to see what it looks like now. I heard the ferry has reopened to Bolivar.

I expected more votes for San Diego and Phoenix. They get talked about so much on this forum.
