For Nearly Half of America, Grass Is Greener Somewhere Else; Denver Tops List of Favorite Cities - Pew Social & Demographic Trends

That has a list of popular cities in the US. Of those San Diego and San Francisco look the most expensive.

Of metropolitan areas that grew rapidly in the 2000s: Boulder, Colorado; Fairbanks, Alaska; Riverside, California; and Washington, DC look the most expensive.

no way LA's that high.

Your list is remarkably similar to Forbe's '09 list.

1. New York, N.Y.
2. Los Angeles, Calif.
3. White Plains, N.Y.
4. San Francisco, Calif.
5. Honolulu, Hawaii
6. Miami, Fla.
7. Chicago, Ill.
8. Boston, Mass.
9. Houston, Texas
10. Washington, D.C.

I still think LA is exaggerated, and there's no way Houston costs more than DC.

White Plains?! Might as well put Bethesda, MD up there.
