NYC is hotter in the summer and has more humidity.

They're pretty similar.

Seattle. It is cloudy 277 days a year (which would explain why the indie rock music that originates there can be the most depressing in America, rivaled by Portland, OR).

i *much* prefer NYC to Seattle. Every time I've been to Seattle, it's 1 nice day punctuated by 5-9 miserable ones. i enjoy distinct seasons - yeah, i know seattle has it to some extent, but it's more extreme in NYC, which I like more (hot summers, cold winters, awesome spring/fall).

New York City has far better weather IMO. New York City has hot, muggy summers but I would much rather have that than the cloudy, drizzly, depressing 9 months of winter in Seattle. And like the previous poster mentioned, NYC has beautiful springs and falls.

NYCs weather is rather mild, more mild than most think. Id go with NYC, too. Seattle's winters are mild, but just too darn cloudy/drizzly for my tastes. And besides, when you live in a place like NYC, who freakin cares about the weather anyways?

To me, the most depressing music is country, because it sucks just so much.

Humidity is hell to me.

Sorry I'll take the clouds in Seattle any second of any day.

NYC by far. The seasons are distinct and you see the sun for more than 2 months a year. Seattle has cold drizzle and clouds from September through June then July through August partly cloudy and slightly warmer.
