    I'm visiting New York later this week. Hopefully if all goes well I can find a job and move there soon! I'm looking to work in the audio editing or video editing areas, and/or the scientific/health research area. But I'll take any job scanning people in at a fitness or night club. icon_biggrin.gif

    Any advice? icon_cool.gif

    To anyone who is going to say, "but what's so bad about LA?"

    Here:
    1. actors/models (too many)
    2. sun (too much)
    3. traffic (do not want car)
    4. people (lazy in general)
    5. commitment (none)
    6. Lived here too long, time to move on

    I hope you have friends here already. NYC like anyplace else can be a lonely place even though you are surrounded by lights and parties and people.

    It's a tough place to live and not for the faint of heart. Even myself, being a new yorker born and raised in Manhattan, sometimes I think this city will eat my soul away and maybe I should live a more peaceful lifestyle somewhere else.

    But I always come back here. There are times when I ask myself why I live in such a high energy crazy place. But this city is in my veins. There is no place on earth like here.

    I suggest visitng here a few times before you move here. Rents and prices are high for living space. But once you get settled you will learn how to participate and enjoy all the great stuff here even if you are on a budget.

    No. I've done that already. Pre and post Katrina. I'm looking to move and work, not party.

    While someone can get burnt out on an area, unless your career favors you being in NY, it's LA hand down. I know financial guys who have passed up promotions to go to Wall Street, to remain here and enjoy the lifestyle that NY can't touch.

    There's an LA versus NY video on You Tube that is posted somewhere on RJ that shows some of the LA beach scenes.

    For someone like me who lives the rain and fries in the sun, fuck yeah. I don't want to be under that shit 24/7/365. Even worse I don't wanna wake up everyday seeing that piece of shit bright asshole raping my eyes. It's like waking up to a fanatical Ronald McDonald in your face. I'm like what the fuck. What the fuck me.

    And now let's talk about where you live

    1. No one
    2. well below 0 in winter
    3. No cars
    4. No one again
    5. Can probably have the only fat gay guy in town stalking me easily
    6. A week tops then I'd have to leave Montana

    Anyway, let's not turn this into an LA is better than NYC because absolutely nothing is going to convince me to stay in this god damn place any longer. Then friends I made here either moved to NYC, moved from NYC, or plan to move to NYC. I am not an LA guy. It's not a terrifying place or anything don't get me wrong. But I don't like to frolic in the beach every weekend. Granted there's fuckwads in NYC too, mostly in Hells Kitchen (superficial 20s & 30s transplants). But I hate my car, and love crowds and people. And I can't find a job in LA so maybe it's a sign to get out of here anyway.

    NYC is the greatest city in the world. There, I said it. Chicago will always be my home... but I'm hoping to call NYC my home too someday! I've never been to LA and have no interest of going.

    sounds paradisical to me. But then we generally live in the rain, minus the sun.

    I just came back from visiting NYC for the first time ever. I fell in love with the city and decided that its where I want to live in the near future! I've lived in a large city in Australia, and a very small city in Canada. The Big Apple is definitely something else!

    Exactly. I have visited both places and New York City is it, baby!

    Granted, I could never afford to live there. However, I feel so energized and inspired when I visit (was last there first week in June). As a foodie, there are good places in LA--don't get me wrong. NYC is the greatest by far.

    You'll love it. Make the move. Soldier on!
