Las Cruces might not have as much as NYC, but I can pretty much guarantee a walk in nice weather at any time of year.
Liking certain weather is definitely subjective, but overall I think NYC's climate is fairly conducive to walking outside. Winters here are fairly mild, spring is pleasant if a little rainy, and fall is gorgeous. It's just the summers that are unpleasantly hot and humid. I don't like to sweat. The perfect climate for me would be Northern California, but I'm willing to sweat through NYC summers to live somewhere with this much energy, urbanity, culture, and places of interest to me.

I've never been out to East Meadow, but thankfully I have plenty of Italian butcher shops and bakeries on Court Street right here in Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens. I also live right near Sahadi's, a great Middle Eastern/French market, a little shop that sells British products, and a few French bakeries/stores. Between all that, Trader Joe's, a couple of really reliable produce stands, Garden of Eden, and a shop offering Latin food and products, I am simply spoiled rotten when it comes to food shopping

walk/metro to work; shop in the city; sweep the sidewalk instead of cutting the lawn; potted plants instead of garden; live in a 4-floor narrow home; dine-movies-events without having to drive.

I live in NYC (the not-dense part though) too and I'm more of a Suburbanite lol, the only Urbanite thing I do is care about the homeless.

You buy fruit, vegetables, and meat and sometimes don't use them for up to two weeks? There are certain things which really don't last more than a week, even in the refrigerator.

My tastes change. I might plan dinner for the next five days and then three days later be in the mood for something different, so I like the flexibility.

Rural people don't care about poor people or vote democratic? Could have fooled me!
