    I think October is best enjoyed in Connecticut.

    fall is definitely the best time to be here, to the extent that one can use the word "best" non-ironically in this context.

    You don't get semi-wood over the seasons like native east coasters do?

    I don't think I'd want to live in a place that doesn't experience a perceptible change of seasons. Seems like a bore.

    If I were to add a reason why NYC sucks, it would be the overwhelming amount of people. There are just too many.

    let's see, we have the humid season, the hot & humid season, the torrential rain season, the freezing season and the snow & slush season. So, no.

    re: rains: for six months of the year, every single weather forecast says "showers & thunderstorms." about 1/3 to half the time you will actually see precipitation. but the threat is always there so you have to carry your umbrella like a talisman. Then after several days of no rain, you say "fuck it" and leave it at home, that's the day you get caught in a downpour and soaked to the bone.

    It snowed like one time last Winter, around Halloween, and that was pretty much it. I don't mind a little snow. Around January, you start to get sick of it.

    I like snow, especially in the city. It turns to slush very quickly, but to my amazement I discovered that one should wear boots instead of loafers when this happens. But not my Edward Green suede boots, that would also be bad.

    New Yorkers are nice, for the most part. There are just too many of them.
