where would you live?

if you could pick any city to live in in the four big areas, which city would it be in? you can use any factors to make your decision. pick a city in the northeast (maryland, delaware, pennsylvania, and the other states north of them), midwest (ohio, michigan, north dakota, kansas, missouri, and everything in between), southeast (virginia, west virginia, kentucky, oklahoma, texas, and everything in between), and west (everything west of the great plains states). you cannot pick the city or metro area you live i right now. you can pick a city you used to live in.

here are my choices.

northeast: buffalo
midwest: detroit
southeast: miami
west: las vegas

northeast: nyc ( i don't care about too many crowds)
midwest: chicago
southeast: houston (i love miami and new orleans, but people overlook the real new orleans outside the garden district and french quarter, miami is beautiful along the coast, but some of the hoods away from the coast are horrific and the city is a little too expensive.)
west: la or san francisco (people talk about how decentralized la is, but imo it is the only city that can get away with it.)


this list does not necessarily mean these are my favorite cities, but they are where i would feel comfortable at.
