Where would you rather live, New York or Boston?

Do you want to live in Boston or in New York? Tell me why.


City: Boston

State: Massachusetts

Country: United States


I've lived in both places and they each have advantages:

NYC is more densely cultural: more museums, more events, more energy, more resources, more international, more of everything.

Boston is more laid back, spread out, and a little lower key. It might suit someone who wants to drive a car to various places as well as it is a little easier to do there than in NYC.
As a resident in Boston, I'd vote for my city for its approachability, size and history. I like being able to walk from one end to another, eat amazing food no matter where you are, and walk through historical neighborhoods where America started.
