No. It's more like Chicago. NYC is a world of it's own....

I know of a really nice town, great attitude, temperate weather, diversified economy, well-educated population, thriving city centers, lots of restaurants, lots of local craft breweries, perched next to gorgeous scenery, but I don't want to say where, because I don't want more people to move here think they need more people there.

There are lots of nice towns in New Zealand. Portland is a really nice city. If it wasn't for the traffic, some of the San Diego County communities would be lovely.

Sounds like Denver ! I'm so jealous that you live in an  environment like that sad
How can you not enjoy fresh air and scenic mountain views !

If you are going to suffer the cold in Canada, at least go with Montreal.

Toronto is a cold Omaha.

Really?

With 19 C temperature I hadn't noticed.

Although today was pretty chilly.

I totally agree, except in my experience the people in NYC are friendly.

I can't really say for sure, because I live in California and have not visited enough of the country or other countries to compare ... but the Bay Area of Califonia is pretty hard to beat!

Thanks... smile

However, you are probably thinking of São Paulo, Brazil!

I am talking about Buenos Aires, Argentina, Spanish language!   tongue

yeah, my bad.
it's the pain meds kickin' in... along with having to deal with a couple hundred Brazilian photographers over the weekend.  (Cameras are outrageously expensive in Brazil, so when the Brazilians come to Las Vegas they visit the local camera stores and buy up everything they can get.  Camera store owners can buy the product at USA retail stores for much less than they can buy 'em from their own distributors.)

Along those lines, when I lived in the Caribbean we'd visit a German town in Venezuela called "Colonia Tovar".  It looked quite a bit like the smaller towns in Germany (where I lived after the Caribbean).  If I remember correctly almost everyone was speaking German in Colonia Tovar, at least the people that owned the restaurants, stands, and shops.
