And do you like your area or hometown ? Im curious. Some of you live in places that are
very lavish, while others dwell in places that are depressed and economically
depleted. Some of you are probably homeless, and that is ok by me.
And then you have those who live a life that only few can imagine.
But what does your area(city or town) say about you ? Do you like where you live at the present time or what ? Answers please.

I live at 300 Mainstreet, Cleveland Ohio.
The keys to my house are under the door mat.
To unlock my door turn it counter clockwise and pull.

My city is exotic and is a resort area. You cannot compare the two really.
It is like apples and oranges. The dynamics are vastly different.
Which would explain why I see the world one way, and you another.

I've lived in New York City most of my life. I grew up in Brooklyn, NY and attended high school in Staten Island, NY. I lived in New Brunswick, NJ for college (Rutgers University) and then moved to the Chicago area for 2 years. Now I live by the Jersey Shore while I go back to finish up school. Afterwards I'll probably live in Manhattan or Brooklyn while I either attend law school or establish my career. Then I wanna move somewhere very different from what I'm used to (like Portland, Oregon) -- possibly even outside of the country.

I love Jersey, I think it is a great state and the energy level is high.
Hmm. Interesting. By the way Danielle. Whos the cute chick by your side ?
Oh, thats your wife. Sorry. =)

I have always lived in the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area of NY. It's nice to be so close to something people travel from the other side of the world to see, but I'll still move as soon as I can. I don't know where yet, probably the southwest area of the US, Hawaii, or maybe even a different country. I'm bored of where I am.

Andromeda. Ooooh. You are coming from one of the most melodramatic places
in the world. Besides the fact that New York state has some of the most colorful and
charismatic small towns in the country. Niagra Falls is a beauty, simple and plain.
And being so close to Canadal also give that area another layer of depth not seen
by many. Not everybody can say that the live next door to another country.
Now how is that for a place called home.

I'm not a fan of small towns, or maybe I'm just bored of the ones here. The problem with western NY is that it never seems to change.

If there's one thing I love about where I live, it's this. Borders mean little when you can cross them whenever you like. Maybe I'll live next door another country again someday.

I live just outside of Toronto... maybe 5 min away from the city's borders. It's okay. My neighborhood has pretty lavish houses, but the drawback is that there is nothing "walking distance".

California is nice Rocky. Never been there before, but most people like it there.
I know the economy sucks in the Golden State. But it has come a very long way,
and the cities there are awesome in spite of the problems they face daily.

I disagree. California is a huge sh1thole. The grass is yellow all year round. Theres a tree every half mile, and the weather sucks. San Francisco is OK I guess. The other major cities suck. Oakland is the crime center of the world, San Diego is too warm, LA is a spwrawled out shithole filled with traffic and pollution. Northern CA is OK only because of the Oregonesque landscape.

Very True.

I think it all goes by how you are living in the state of California. There are a lot of
other nice places such as Modesto, Canoga Park, Gold Ranch, Santa Cruz,
Sherman Oaks, Long Beach, and other areas that are pretty decent compared
to the others.

Grew up in Lexington Massachusetts, a fairly affluent suburb of Boston.

Lexington is a very historic town, and historically active, and growing up in that atmosphere had a very large impact on my understanding of and appreciation of history.

Okay, sure! Bring warm clothes, it snows seven months a year (another thing I'm not fond of).

The great White Male from Lexington Mass. That is a wonderful town sir.
You must live a very complicated life. Very Liberal, patriotic, intelligent, and
straightforward.
