Man, isn't that the truth - Seattle has horrible footwear. Congrats on the move - Seattle and NY are both awesome places in their own way, but if I could, I'd probably take NY. I felt the same about the Clifton at first too, but after a few wears, it's my favorite shape since it has the longer captoe - other ones like the Townley just seem more "bulby". Walnut definitely feels more pointy than the brown too.
