Just curious, how are you defining "East Coast?" New York and Boston for sure... What about DC? Norfolk? Savannah? Jacksonville?DC is kind of an "iffy" city. Maybe the political scene is incredibly fast paced, but I found the legal scene a bit more relaxed.
Being from the Midwest, I've always been surprised to notice a cultural difference on the East Coast. I shouldn't generalize, but I find that, on average, young people are more concerned about social mobility, status, and speed of living. People go out more than their Midwest counterparts, stay out later, work until they're actually tired.Then again, I mostly see an old friend of mine from my home state, and maybe many of her friends are like that. She lives in Washington Heights.Is it just me? I've been thinking slightly more about where I want to go -- perhaps hopelessly ambitious, in this economy -- and I'm mulling over the cultural difference I noticed a year ago.
You guys don't know what the @#!* you're talking about re: East Coasters. We're super, super hospitable and usually wear our hearts on our sleeves. We'll also be the first to call bull and not pretend to like someone.
