Which U.S. city is the best?
I really liked Baltimore. There were reasonably good cultural opportunities, and it has Johns Hopkins, UMMC, Bon Secours, and Mercy Hospital, which make it a BIG medical/health care town, which is good if you plan plan being a health care worker.
However, it also contains vastly large tracts of very shooty (as in you may be shot if you go there), blighty, urban blight that look like the stories they used to do on 60 Minutes in the late 70s and early 80s about how terrible urban blight was in NYC.
Chicago and Boston are appealing, but cold as a woman's heart.
Speaking of Chicago, is there anywhere in flyover country worth a second look? I hear some good things about Austin, but then you'd have to live in Texas, and I've promised myself that I'd never make myself live in Texas.
So, if a person could live anywhere in the U.S., which city would be best?
