Even though there are rough patches, the potential is mind-boggling. Albany feels like a really great mix of New England with a healthy splash of the Midwest. It's amazing how overbuilt its freeway system is, though, for a city its size. I figure it's because of state legislators (who distribute highway funds) driving in and out of there all the time.
I'd personally say that Albany is more of a mix of New England and the Mid-Atlantic..

Amazing how much "press" old-fashioned, oft-ignored Albany is getting on this thread..

I put Seattle top on my "NO" list due to the dismal winter weather, the area politics, and the SEATTLE FREEZE! I stand close to people when I talk, go out and shake hands and meet people, and talk - a lot. I also have Asperger's Syndrome. Oh, and I've been in 25 different 2008 and newer Honda Accords.

95% of America is too standoffish in my opinion. To be honest, my favorite places are small rural Southern towns.

Yes:
Boulder, CO
Vancouver, BC
Marquette, MI
Anchorage, AK
Flagstaff, AZ

As you can see, most of these are small to medium size cities with many recreational opportunities like skiing, hiking, etc. I hate heat so all of these cities (except Boulder) have comfortable summers.

No: I can name many cities.

Pyongyang, North Korea
Mecca, Saudi Arabia
Harare, Zimbabwe
Mogadishu, Somalia
Port-au-Prince, Haiti
Baghdad, Iraq
Kabul, Afghanistan
Damascus, Syria
Jakarta, Indonesia
Nairobi, Kenya
