If you absolutely forced me to leave Brooklyn, my first choice would be Miami. Not a suburb of Miami, but within the city itself. My main dilemma would be whether to relocate to the Brickell or Coconut Grove section.

And as a second option, I was in San Francisco once, several years ago. A beautiful city. And it has the sensibility a New Yorker can deal with!

Lived in Los Angeles for 7 yrs before moving to Manhattan.

LA is NOTHING like NYC. It's a city that revolves around cars. This means car payments, car insurance, gas and TRAFFIC.

That's the #2 reason why I moved out of LA - the traffic. It's a 24/7 nightmare.

Hopefully you can be lucky to work close to where you live (within 30 min).

Also - bars/clubs close at 1:45am. So no more NYC-style late nights.

But you're right - the weather is great. Don't worry about the rich people - you'll never bump into them as they're in either in their Beverly Hills/Hollywood Hills mansion or in their cars. That's another thing - you won't bump into many people. No subways, not much walking - you can literally go for days without any contact w/ anybody else. (home to car to work to car to home)

Either San Francisco or LA for me.

The city of Boston isn't too bad but it is heavily rooted in sports, seems everything revolves around their sports teams, it's like a small town trying to be a big city. For those who think it's like a smaller version of NYC, they couldn't be more wrong.

This forum got moved from the NYC forum. It seems to me that because of that, it lost its original intent, which was to ask New Yorkers what other city they would move to if they had to.

Now since it's in "general US" I suppose a possible answer would be "NYC."

I will be living back in Boston within the year so that's not an option. If I had to live anywhere other than Boston, then I'd pick New York City. San Francisco being a close second and D.C. being 3rd.

Obviously Chicago, but not counting that: Seattle, or Monterey, CA.
