San Jose, California

1. Weather (mild winters with no snow and only the occasional overnight freeze; warm, but not hot summers; lots of sunny days.)
2. low crime; no large scale urban blight like some large cities have
3. educated population
4. 45 minutes to Pacific Ocean
5. pleasant scenery (mountains on 3 sides; fairly clean air; beautiful coastline nearby)

I don't care for Florida. I don't hate it. I was just commenting to someone who said the law enforcement is so good in Ft.Myers, when in fact it's one of the most dangerous smaller cities. I posted what I love about NYC too. What's so negative about that? And I think my mom's post was meant to be sort of a joke, calm down.

I don't hold any grudges. Everyone's entitled to their opinions. I was just agreeing with TB Fla's opinion.

By the way....that was my post about Fort Myers. Yes there is a good amount of crime in the city of Ft Myers, but that doesn't mean the law enforcement is bad. Their job is to react to crime, catch criminals and then punish them. They do an excellent job of that. Crime is also very low outside of the city limits, where the majority of the population lives.

I don't like bashing other cops..... but try driving in other parts of FL where they don't bother with traffic enforcement as much(Miami/Orlando). It is quite an experience how bad the drivers are. We don't have that here so much, beacause our cops actually enforce traffic laws.

I left it to others to post about NYC, which I still consider my HOME city. EITHER place, I still like the night and the rain.

Yes, I probably should not have written about Naples at all since I don't consider it my home anyway.
