I started a thread about Best Southern cities and I recieved only a few responses but they were good quality responses.

So I'll do the same with the East Coast. Also tell why you selected the city?


I like to find out why people like what they like!!



Thanks

I love the density of the East Coast; row houses everywhere with narrow streets; all the history; the old and beautiful architecture and good seafood restaurants as they're right next to the Atlantic Ocean.

Washington, DC suits me the best, but I can understand why others like other cities better. I've lived in Boston (let's just say I did not resonate with its energy) and have worked extensively in NYC and Baltimore.

At its best, DC has a very high concentration of very intelligent, educated professionals from all over the world doing very interesting work that exists nowhere else in the country and is focused on issues beyond their own self-interest. DC also has a nice mix of very urban vibe and culture with a more laid back energy than, for example, NYC.

Thanks for the reply. Great explanation.

I'm not a city person so I have eliminated ALL cities in the northeast. I like the other states in the central east coast but not as favorites. I hate Miami so Miami gets the can. The best city on the east coast is probably Delray Beach, FL. Or Boca Raton.
