Another typical city vs. city thread.
What's your all's favorite city above, everything inclusive (including cost)? I'd like to revisit all three cities. Chicago has been my top choice for a while. Low cost of living, and a very urban feel (and beautiful). I don't think the winter would bother me as most people (used to live there when I was a kid).
San Francisco seems great and I only hear good things about it. I'd like to try out the West Coast. I will admit the weather would be pretty nice. But the housing cost... I feel like if I'm paying that much I might as well be in NYC.
NYC obviously has that appeal for a lot of people, especially in finance. I'm going through summer internships, and it seems like most of them are in NYC. I was under the impression that SA got trained in NYC but then got sent to their offices around the country (or stayed), but I'm not sure if this is the case (for public finance). I keep going back and forth with NYC. I'm one of those cheap people who likes to save, so NYC might kill me in that case. I would definitely get a roommate, so hopefully I could stay (maybe) under $1500 on housing... The last time I was in NYC I was convinced I wanted to live there.
What about you guys? What would your top choice be?
