You win a used minivan from 1997 with a screeching alternator belt, and a pack of Marlboro reds.

In my case, I already live in Boston and San Francisco.


The issue is that (a) I have always wanted to live in NYC (and actually bought the third condo in Parkchester, the Bronx, to test the waters), and (b) my Boston condo has appreciated a lot, and is tying up a lot of cash, so would be financially prudent to sell it; I don't like Boston that much anyway (Bostonians have a surgically implanted chip on their shoulder), so would like to swap it for some more neighborly environment on the East Coast.


I always wanted to live on both coasts, and always thought that my last East Coast base (when I fully retire) would be NYC. But... after I started staying on/off at my (previously rental) place in the Bronx, I am starting to find out that I actually do not enjoy NYC as much as I thought I would.


I'll continue thinking about it. Moving to NYC is still an option, I am still not totally convinced that NYC no longer has anything unique to offer. Or I may stay in Boston (I like my Boston condo, although I don't like the city overall). Previously mentioned Pittsburgh (a little far inland, but it has a hub airport). Or even a smaller city on the East Coast.


My requirement for the East Coast city is historic preservation. Five cities with the largest pre-1940 stock of buildings are 1. Buffalo, 2. St Louis, 3. Cleveland, 4. Pittsburgh, 5. Boston. I have been to all of these cities, the first three are out due to high crime rate, but #4 and #5 are a possibility (actually, $5 is the present reality, but I am not sure I want to keep it that way).
