Nope.. still here Lol! I can go to any board and read and comment at my leisure. I never compared NYC to OC. There is no comparison. NYC is the capital of the world. OC is the capital of seven shades of beige suburbia.

NYC is well on its way to becoming Escape From New York for real. The things that made NYC great are disappearing. It is the next Detroit.

New York City is a dirty, run-down mess with terrible weather. Especially the outer boroughs...Manhattan is better, but the roads are still full of potholes and most of it is dirty, ugly brick buildings. The people are full of themselves, thinking that they're smarter, tougher, better, harder working and more cultured than the rest of the world. I wish they would just clean the subway stations at least once a year. There are some good restaurants there, but San Francisco and Los Angeles have good restaurants as well...not so much Orange County. In fact, the Italian Deli's in San Francisco are way better than the ones in New York. So much so that if you look at the different types of Salami they sell in New York Deli's, it's all imported from San Francisco.

I live in San Francisco but would relocate to Orange County in a heartbeat. Good restaurants are nice to have, but there are other things that are important too. Orange County has great weather, is very clean, the crime is low, the cities are well taken care of, the roads are good and there are a lot of things to do.

Unfortunately I need to visit New York a few times a year, as my wife's family is there, but I'll be happy when I return from my final visit there...not sure when that will be.

You can apply that to a lot of big cities.

NYC is falling behind so many cities and is hardly the capital of the world.

It is readily apparent that you are reminiscing about OC. We all know what happened to NYC due to CVD. How is the blizzard? It was sunny today here, a lovely day.

Which city might one hide in to avoid this kind of unpleasant scene?

Ever since California was annexed from Mexico, the white migrants who came here were largely uneducated white trash, seeking to get rich quick in the Gold Rush and land speculation. In fact, it was these very whites who committed the California Genocide, slaughtering nearly all of the Native Americans of California, stealing their land.

There are also military bases surrounding OC (Pendleton, Long Beach), and so historically there has been a military presence in OC. The military is known for using conservative white trash as cannon fodder, which brought them to OC.

Given this profile, it becomes easily understandable why places like Huntington Beach are the way they are. More of OC used to be like HB, but thankfully immigration has made it more diverse and hospitable. Not to mention, the whites who didn't strike it rich are now leaving CA because they can't afford the cost of living.

Most people don't appreciate dissimilar immigrants. Most people prefer to live around, go to school with, socialize with, and marry people like themselves. We know this from dating site, census, and real estate data. 85% of churches are 90% same race. Most parents prefer their kids marry same race. This is normal, natural, and healthy.
In a 2014 survey, the Public Religion Research Institute found that the average white American has 91 white friends, one black friend, one Latino friend, one Asian friend, one mixed-race friend, one friend of an “other” race and three friends of unknown races.
The average African-American has 83 black friends, eight white friends, two Latino friends, no Asian friends, three mixed-race friends, one friend of an “other” race and four friends whose races are unknown.
Further, 75 percent of the whites interviewed in the study had no friends of other races. Among black respondents, nearly 66 percent had no friends of other races.

Where are you getting this information? It doesn't seem accurate. For example, in the L.A./Long Beach/Anaheim area, the share of newlyweds with a spouse of a different race or ethnicity is 22%. And this is data that's several years old, so the percentage would appear to have increased since then.

SoCal is on the extreme end of interracial marriages especially if both spouses are nonwhite. No way is the whole US 22%.
