Oh, come on. "Oh, I wouldn't know a crappy town." We all know that everyone in NYC thinks EVERY other town is crappy!
NYC on the top of the list of places they would never want to live, like me. Its too big, too expensive and costs too much to own a car there. Here for less than 400k I have an extremely nice place downtown, I can afford to own two cars, go hiking, kayaking, mountain bike riding all in the city limits and can be in Vail in two hours. Cost of living here compared to salary is greater than there. Personally Iíd put NYC, LA and DC on my crappy city list as Iíd have to give up too many of things I enjoy to live there in some over priced apartment the size of my master bathroom. Its all relative one - manís crappy is another manís heaven.
