I like all for what they bring. But I love scenery and mountains. So I might love San Francisco and Seattle lol. From your poll, I really can't pick just one.

speaking of Philadelphia JBOB,
Could you or any of the other Philadelphia forumers tell me something about Germantown? I was researching houses online and there are some very nice looking properties in that part of town for really cheap.

Is it safe? diverse? what are the socio-economic conditions like? Just curious and locals will always know best what areas of their cities are like.

Germantown has alot of history it's a relative good investment there is crime in all areas of the city. It's safe just as most other parts of the city Mt. airy, Manayunk, Chestnut hill etc.. Gtown is close to these areas which are very good, chestnut hill, Manayunk and on the bottom east end you have central north philly which has gotten alot of flack over the decades but is turning around. Philly is a great investment anywhere in the city. Diversity asians, indians, etc.. it's getting more and more diverse especially since alot of people are moving here from NYC. Most people from the Ghettos of West, South or North Philly move to Germantown, Olney Oak, Manayunk or if fortunate enough Chestnut Hill, The Maine Line, Center City, etc.. when they have made it. It's like another city unto itself.

Info From the NYC forum just to indicate what's going on.

Thanks for the 411.

Philadelphia is really underpriced IMO. It should be twice as expensive-but I guess that's good news for people looking to buy homes-unlike here, where its all messed up.

Just FYI, that city doesn't exist. Chicago would be the closeset thing to it, but even Chicago isn't too espensive for a city with its size and culture. Most areas around the great lakes very affordable.

Except Las Vegas is next to Lake Mead and the Colorado river.
