Trying to single in on one of the four for the relocation in 2014, couldn't be more ecstatic. I've ruled out the rest of the landmass in the process.

I'm not going to ask for any criteria, I can look into that on my own and I usually like to go with my own perception either way but I'd like to ask which of the four would you pick to spend a good amount of your life in?

What reason? How much does culture, climate, social or economical opportunities, crime, or location play into it? Anyone really care which country you're living in?

I'll look more into immigration as I start narrowing down the choices further, for which one would best suit me long term.

NYC. Was born and raised there. Growing up was tough; no dad around most of the time, surrounded by lots of drugs and gang stuff. But I can't blame that on the city. I just happened to have grown up in a crappy hood. I would definitely move back to an upper class hood if I was making that kind of money to support myself. NYC is a whole different world and I think everyone should spend some time living there. I feel like I am a much more open minded, realistic person due totally to growing up in Brooklyn. As I'm older now, traveling freely around the boroughs is one of my favorite things to do. Sometimes I even feel like a tourist since I never left Bed Stuy til I was like 17 lol. I'm 21 now.

Yeah, neither of my parents were around much when I was growing up and we never really had much of a "family" either way. To this day, we haven't all sat down at a dinner table together at home and the only real time I get to see my parents and both my (remaining) brothers is when we go on family trips somewhere. For that reason, we do at least one or two of those annually. To keep it 100, all I really want is to live out the rest of my life in the quiet.

I don't get that in Washington and these are honestly the only four places I've been to in North America where I feel comfortable enough with the vibe. Yet, most of them share nothing else in common with one another.

I could easily do Vancouver, whereas I would rather be in a coma than experience a Cascadia peer like Portland.
