Sort of like when F#X "News" choreographs "tea parties" and pretends it's news?

If you are from California or one of the eastern states, i.e. Connecticut, New York, Texas etc. Don't come here you will hate it.

When you say 'here' -- do you mean

northern NM?
southern NM?
all of NM?

I am pretty sure that there are lots of happy Texans in Ruidoso, happy Californians in Taos, and happy New Yorkers in Santa Fe.

I agree.

I meet people all the time from these states who are living in NM and loving it.

I have a feeling that feng is attempting to mislead, in order to discourage more people moving to NM and loving it.

Cool Northern vs southern NM

I definitely prefer southwest NM; no snow shoveling! I live in T or C and it's an oasis--2 lakes, 10 hot springs spas, and a river runs thru it! Nice friendly people, too.

all feng no shui: Texas is an 'eastern' state? Now, looky here, podnuh...Part of Texas is as far west as most of New Mexico.

I'm still going to come out in 2010 and check out Socorro and several other places with an eye to moving if I possibly can.

I don't know whether I could handle the winters of northern NM, but I love it there the rest of the year!

Native New Yorker and more recent New Jerseyite here - I love, love, love New Mexico, and southern New Mexico in particular.

This has been the most confusing thread I've ever read lol!!! It went from north vs. south to discussions about Al Sharpton to High School Football!! Haha. But I prefer northern... And I'd say that the dividing line, if one were to exist, would be closer to US Route 60 and not I-40. There's a bunch to like about both areas, though. I just prefer the north is all. I'd say both are scenic, both are relatively safe.. But I'd give the edge in the category of "things to do" to the north, almost entirely because of the presence of Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Taos. Other than that, the two regions would be pretty well tied. New Mexico is massive enough to have an area most everyone can like.
