i live in england lol
Usa is not just suburbs and their homes are much prettier than houses in UK.
Each region is different in the Us e.g Arizona looks completely different than Illinois and illinois is nothing like Florida ;p
Uk cities are almost all the same, boring rownhouses built very close to the street usually without any greenery because there is no space lol

Or bored.

I think you are right. I lived in NYC -smack dab in the middle of Manhattan - from the late 50's to 2000. Did everything there, went to everything, etc.

Now I find it massively boring, and worse than that annoying. But then....I used NYC up, and the quality and variety of what's there now, does not measure up to what used to be there in my estimation.

And I am at the point in my life where I don't need to be bombarded with entertainment and sensation; good conversation and company make an interesting place -- noise, hullabaloo and crowds of bufoons are big negatives. Thus, I would find other people's boring places far more interesting than NYC.

Matter of opinion. I find a lack of character and interesting features in most US houses. Lots of historic houses in the UK. The older the better IMO.

The UK is not all cities. There are lots of villages, small towns and countryside. I'm not in England, but Scotland and I'm surrounded by greenery, water, mountains.

Many cities in the US look the same as any other city.

Oh, right, forgot you are the one who hates England. So move.

Living in Canada was pretty boring. It's like being in a small town on the outskirts of everything else. And you can see everything else from your small town, but if you want to go to everything else you are leaving the country. Sitting inside for long periods gets boring, fast.
