Hard to argue with the facts. This is why Miami will continue to suffer as the inflationary depression expands over the next few years. Notice how the bulk of the top 10 is in Florida.

I know...Florida needs to have something else besides tourist and retires as its industry. Or at least attract bigger companies to move here, but we have already discussed that the workforce isn't here.

Miami beat out NYC, kinda shocking but not really.

The funny thing is, out of all of those cities, I'd only consider living in New York or possibly Chicago. The rest are not worth the $$$, IMO.

I'd rather live in Miami than NYC or Chicago...they can keep the cold.

Cold weather doesn't bother me. It's an inconvenience, but I'd trade Miami for either of those places, cold and all.

Personally, I don't like the seemingly endless heat and humidity here, nor do I like the scorching power of the sun, making everything so bright that going out gives me a headache at times.

cold or non-stop heat and humidity? neither are fun, you gotta pick which one you hate the least. or move to the southeast (other than FL), where you get warm weather, cold but not really cold winters, and hot summers. best of both.

Outstanding. Miami makes another list. I've lost count now. Let's see. We made the top crime list, fattest people, low standard of living. I think Miami has made every list except 'worst smelling city'. Of course at the rate they are adding to Mt Trashmore we'll make that one soon.
