Summer Heat is pretty high here 3 months of the year but the other 9 months are really pleasant compared to NY. You can enjoy the outdoors 9 months of the year. Enjoying the summer heat requires that you get involved with water sports, swimming, tubing, canoeing, boating... there are numerous rivers and swimming holes and a few lakes near by. And the Gulf coast beach is only 2.5 hours away to Port Aransas.

Violent Crime Rate statistics are comparable between SA/TX and NY/NY. But property crime is higher, mostly burglary and theft. NYC has surprisingly low crime rates, much lower then the national average, which I find hard to believe. I suspect they are cooking the books.

Crime Rates/100,000................SA,TX..................NY,N Y
Murder.....................................6.6.... .................6.3
Rapes....................................36.3..... ................13.3
Robberies..............................131.7...... ............240.6
Assaults.................................344.7.... ..............363.2
Burglary...............................1131.4..... .............221.1
Thefts .................................4400.4........... .......137.4
Auto thefts.............................434.8.......... ........114.9
Arson.......................................15.4.. ................???
Total.......................................451.9. ................254.4........National Average...........319.1
You really meant to say 9 months of heat, 3 months of pleasant weather, right?

Three months June, July, August are the hottest months of the summer. May and September are hit and miss when it comes to good weather. Some days are good, some are hot/humid and others are really hot. The rest of the year plays out well.

May and September are hot, no matter how you slice and dice it. For someone from NY...it'll be reeaalllll hot. Anything in the mid-upper 80's is hot to someone from the NE..that covers pretty much all of May and September. Could be late April and early October as well.
I'm a formr NY-er and have been here for 7 years...it's still hot for us...it's a long hot summer. Even tougher to endure if one is overweight/out of shape, I would guess.

I don't think you can use blanket statements in this situation. Everyone is different and registers temperatures differently. You can't assume just because he's from the NE that high 80's is "hot" for him. Just my opinion.

Not sure why you used CD for the crime statistics. I would never use CD.

Here is ranking of the top 10 cities in America with the lowest crime rate and the bottom 10 cities in America with the highest crime rate.

http://os.cqpress.com/citycrime/2012...sFactSheet.pdf

As you can see, both New York City and San Antonio are in the top 10 for lowest crime rate.

Actually yes, you can. No way it's hot for just 3 months here either...just no way.

Well, in a literal sense, yes you can. But it doesn't mean you're right.

As for 3 months, well, the poster was saying those three months of summer are the hottest/most uncomfortable. It's "hot" for probably 5 months out of the year. Maybe more depending on random heat waves.

NYC had a high of 62 today, today our high will be 84. People from the NE are going to consider this hot, even though its not summer hot, its still hot for this time of year. The tempature may hot be high, but for October it's not what they are use to

Again, what someone thinks is "hot" is subjective. You can't speak for anyone but yourself. That's my point. That poster might think 62 is cold while someone else might think it's just right. Who knows.

Something to remember about the weather here is for most of the day it's not very humid. At least not humid for someone who is used to east coast humidity.

So while the temperature might be 84 and that sounds warm, the humidity is far lower than a NY early summer day where it might be 84 with 70% humidity.

84 here is far more comfortable to me than 80s on the east coast.
