    Inspired by why NYC sucks.

    Economics aside what would be your dream city to live in? Provide reasons why it is your dream city if you are so inclined.

    I could seriously do London for a stretch.

    Having never spent more than three weeks at once in England but probably a total of 12 weeks in the past decade, I love every time I go.

    I'm sure I'd tire of the crowding, etc but I'd happily get to know London very well for a few years. Perhaps live just outside.

    London would be very low on my list. Hell, I'd rather stay in Boston than live there.

    London seems like it would be a nice place to be from.

    I've never been there but it seems like Santa Barbara would be a really nice place to live. It is 2 hrs into LA, but the actual city is SB isnt super small, and you have good proximity to the ocean (obvs) and there is a large state park to the east. Also good food/wine region. Weather is nice.

    Been for a short visit. I like its location to various other things that interest me. LA would not be one of them.

    I just threw proximity to LA in there - not sure I'm much of an LA person either, but proximity to a large city has its upsides (shopping, travel, health services).

    I could definitely see myself living in Zurich or Berlin. Zurich was small but fun. It'd get old in a few months. Berlin I cant imagine getting old in 3 years.
