I'll take California.
NY is "boring"? Never been there I take it....

And most of SoCal is exactly how you described NYC.

this looks like a poll that directly goes with the population of those states. so I chose none of the above.

I've lived there all my life genius, and by boring I mean everything north of the Bronx. The city is not boring at all.

I voted with my Northeast bias. New York -- the state overall, mind you -- is far from boring and its unique cultural diversity is just plain awesome.

New York is an overpriced Disneyland; Texas homes are made out of paper masche and its so-called open space is being looted by developers . I've never been to California.

Let's not forget that there is a huge canyon between Amarillo and Lubbock. But of course, that's the only place he's been to and of course, he won't show back up in this thread.

I've live in Lathrop, California and visited Texas. Although I was in Austin, Tx just for short period of time, I dare to say I would rather live in California. Better paid jobs.

The higher the cost of living,the better the pay is...but basically your getting paid the same amount in cheaper states its just that in more expensive states the things cost more than they do in cheaper states.
