Chicago, on N. State Parkway, Gothe or Astor St. Never need a car. Near everything to walk!

Palm Beach, Florida. In Via Parigi (same as above, right in the heart of things).
I'd be mighty content to have my old apartment back, really! (which is now a $ multi-million townhome :<(.

Southhampton Long Island[/QUOTE]

CarolinaJack, very curious about this one, have you ever visited here? I spent two summers here and must admit that, if you think Philly's bad 'tude-wise, this is another stratosphere. The one truly down to earth person we actually encountered & had a cool, regular conversaton with was Billy Joel. At the bar in a pub just chilling out on a slow afternoon, so we didn't let on or make a fuss. He actually initiated! Most others around acted quite aloof and his personality was not of the mold there.
Just pick your home next to Billy's so you know you'll have one cool neighbor to shoot the breeze with , OK?

"If money was no object" you'd want 2-3 houses in the U.S., not one.

An apt. in NYC.

A house or condo in Vail.

A place in So. California. Perhaps Malibu or La Jolla or Rancho Santa Fe.

That is exactly what I would want. I love old townhouses in NYC. I like Sarah Jessica Parker's and Matthew Brodericks digs in the West Village. Nice townhouse! Can't imagine what that goes for.

A decent sized property for my furry friends to run around in the snow.

A few places in California would work- Bel Air Mansion, Beverly Hills or Malibu would do.

There are some really nice places all across the nation I've never been. But if money was no object, I'd have a house on the battery in Charleston, SC, a beach house on Kiawah Island, and a 60-foot yacht to cruise to my house in Bermuda

Maybe a better question would be, where would you live if you still had to work, but housing affordability was not an issue. Hawaii might be a great vacation spot, but would you honestly want to live there all the time?

I'll agree with carolinajack on Chevy Chase, MD-- if I had a big-shot position in the federal government. Even though that's not technically a city-- it's one of the most beautiful neighborhoods/townlets I've ever seen.

1 of three options,
buy up as much land as possible even do home buyouts right at the point of which the state lines of tn,va & nc meet

buy my own mountain or mountains in the eastern portion of the states

i've never been to DC but from what i hear the area around the white house is not so good, so i would buy every bit of that area up bulldoze it down, then put in something that's going to make me even more money.

I am with you anonymous

I would buy a house on the Charleston Battery, Kiawah Island or better Spring or Dewees Island, already have one on Sullivans island SC, one in Jackson Hole and on Bermuda or Barbados.

I would buy a place in California in Monterey, Carmel, Santa Barbara or Laguna Beach. On a cliff over looking the ocean. Or in the Colorado ski country.
