      Yeah but b/w those two, there is an
      obvious choice: NYC

      Do you always reason based off subjectivity?

      There are extremely clear pros and cons to each city, I could spend all day writing comparisons so I’m not sure how it’s “obvious” at all.

    Museums and parks - NYC
    Broadway - NYC
    Just about every other cultural shit - NYC
    Dating - NYC

      Can’t you not really swim at the beaches in SF because it’s too cold?

    I’m probably the odd man out, but I actually prefer SF. I enjoy the mild weather and the slower pace compared to NYC.

    And while SF does have some serious Infra problems, they don’t really bother me personally.

    • Why do you consider the pace slower? I find people in SF are always stressed out from work.

      I've always thought it looks less busy on the street because everyone is either in the office or resting getting ready for the next day.

      Having lived in both cities, people are WAY more stressed out in NYC that SF

      Been in NYC for a year, weather is a real drag. It’s barely tolerable outside for 5-6mo out of the year. Climate is an underrated factor in picking a city.
