DougCA, I live in CS and have spent a lot of time in both SD & NY. Each is so different in size/climate/culture I really don't know how to respond. I LOVE living in CS but also LOVE to visit New York and San Diego. I think I could live in San Diego but New York would wear on me after a week.

These cities have absolutely nothing in common other than the fact that they're in the US

Well,

I lived in S. Cal. most of my life. After moving to Colorado Springs I swore I would never move back. It is a concrete jungle from LA to SD. N. Cal. however is much nicer, especially in the less crouded cities where you actually have trees and open coast.

Since I am fed up with over populated, over priced, over rated and over polluted places New York City has '0' or '-1' appeal.

I lived in NYC for 1 year. Glad I had the opportunity but wouldn't do so again. I really enjoy SD more than CS.

Wow, talk about differences! Do you have a job offer in all three cities or something? I've been to all three cities, and I'd say if money was no issue, I'd live in San Diego, without thinking twice about it. I truly do believe that SD has the best weather in the country. Beautiful beaches, canyons, hills, and deserts to explore. Plus, as a city, it has a lot to offer for its size-- a great downtown, several universities, Balboa Park, fun beach communities. The only two negatives I can think of are the cost of living there and the traffic/putting up with obnoxious California drivers.

Colorado Springs is a nice place to live too. Beautiful mountain scenery, Pikes Peak, etc. A lot of outdoor recreation things to do. Although personally I'd rather live in Denver-- Denver has much more to offer as a city and much more cultural, religious and political diversity. Colorado Springs is basically a military town-- ULTRA conservative, all white (with a small hispanic minority), and tons of fundamentalist Christian groups. No disrespect to our armed forces, but I'd rather live in a more "civilian" town personally.

New York City-- a great city if you are young, ambitious, and are willing to sacrifice everything and work your brains out to make the big bucks. If you like that high-paced, urban life with constant sensory overload, and find that stimulating, then NYC is probably the best place you could ever live. Personally, I'm a more laid-back, relaxed person, so I think New York City would probably stress me out a little too much.
