Austin, TX


re:
A living hell
- 6/24/2020
Another example of a US city that used to be good 30 years ago, got discovered, than overpopulated, followed by high housing costs followed by all usual problems of a city in decline. Portland Seattle San Fran NYC Los Angeles San Diego Miami and on and on.

Born and raised in NY. Spot on review. It;s everything I have thought over the years but you worded it better than I could. I think maybe when you're young. It's like one of those "it" cities, Los Angeles would be another example that in your 20s might make sense. Five roommates in a one-bedroom. I don't like the gentrification. Very sterile now. Much more fun in the 70s and 80s. The city had grit and edginess. Regular Joe type shot and beer joints/bars can't exist anymore. Can't pay the rent. So now flagship Abercrombie and Fitch corporate garbage moves in. This is appealing for soccer moms from Minneapolis with real estate licenses that want to raise their kids in the city but the stuff that made the city fun for me is gone now. You're right about the culture and arts. I never really knew what that meant anyway. "City has great culture". What does that even mean?. You couldn't pay me to go to a Broadway play. I don't really like the opera. I don't like spending hours leafing through old books at Soho bookstores. I can't remember the last time I was in a museum. Actually you mentioned 3000 a month for rent. I was paying $4500 per month and it wasn't that great of a one-bedroom apartment. No washer and dryer remember that. Also no central air-conditioning. Don't believe the "you don't need a car" mantra. Maybe if you never want to leave the city that's true but I always wanted to leave the city. The Northeast has some beautiful geographical spots and the train doesn't go to every one of them. So I kept a car and I used it a lot. At least once a week I would get out of the city so I needed the car but that was an additional $700 a month just for underground parking on top of the $4500 a month rent. I moved to Las Vegas. Could've been anywhere else but I chose Las Vegas and here I've got a brand-new 2020 construction home with a two car garage washer and dryer three zone AC the works, for $1400 a month. There are shows and bands and whatever else you want to see along the strip and instead of paying $150 per month for a gym membership at a gym that was the size of a walk-in closet in New York City I pay $20 per month for a gym that literally is 75,000 ft.² large with thousands of pieces of equipment. The trade-off isn't worth living in New York unless you've got your claws in real estate or you've got some big seven figure job working at the bank's but then those kinds of guys are really living in New York living in penthouses and taking helicopters to Teterboro to their private planes. That's a different story but for anyone lower middle-class/middle-class/upper-middle-class is no rationale for it. The city does offer good benefits for government jobs and there are a million government employees in New York state. That's where your tax dollars are going to. New York is broke. Houses on Long Island have a $30,000 per year property tax. That's 30,000 and that's every year. There are some spots in the suburbs where you might be able to get away with $15-$20,000 a year but you gotta be kidding me $20,000 a year for what. Except for New York City/Boston and the surrounding suburbs and outskirts, the Northeast is not that congested. My choice would be to live within a couple of hours of the city where housing costs are a third and so are the taxes. The Northeast is a beautiful part of the country.

Seattle has a lot of fatties too. I mean a lot. It's all relative. Miami nightlife on Friday compare the girls bodies going out. Seattle females are not necessarily carrying 60 extra pounds of mass but they are carrying 20. The PNW is no picnic for single men. The women are an abomination. Maybe worse than San Fran and Portland and that's saying something. Don't get me started on the lack of makeup and ridiculous multiple piercing tattoos and strange green and orange hair coloring choices

You're reviewing The Strip, not the other 99 per cent. None of your descriptions apply to the Suburbs/ off the Strip. "Losing all you've ever worked for"?, is the guy who gambles. You can gamble in all 50 states these days. If a person got a problem it's not the towns fault, but the addicts. Food is cheap. Stay out of the Bellagio restaurants that's all. Try Chinatown. Great food, inexpensive. Stale smoke? Stay out of the casinos, it's easy, I've been her 8 years and have been in one twice. BTW I'm glad the nightlife and diversions are here otherwise it would be Tucson or Phoenix. The buzz of the strip is great to dip your toe into once and a while and than get out. I'm glad it's here for the 2 times per year I want a little adrenaline jolt. If you want a boring town you've got 10,000 other cities to choose from. Have at it.

They pay it as long as they can suck rental income out greater than their monthly nut on the place, So they rent it for 10 years suck out the rent don't put a penny int o the place and let it run into the ground than dump it.

All of these replies to the Op are the very miserable and angry women in Portland he is referring to. Bluntly put, the women in Portland and the PNW in general are unbelievably unattractive. Tattoos piercings short manly hair styles and hiking gear fashion along with 30 pounds of extra pounds is just for starters. Add no makeup or style sense, as they would see it they never demean themselves to look good for a man, I'm too progressive and woke for that. What's with the tatoos!!! NYC, Miami women in dresses and heels don't have full body tats or any tats. This is a west coast thing exagerated in Portland for good measure. If you are a single man and have ever lived in the South for example no less style sense cities like Montreal Paris Vienna Milan you will be miserable there.,, In short the girls there are the single most unfeminine hideous broads on the planet.

Fake review to shake a bee hive . I'm from Long Island. There are jerks there butI'm fairly certain this is a fake review but no one as over the top as this guy. He means to be stereotypical with the foul language and southern people insults to sit back and laugh at the replies. If this guy is for real he needs to be quarantined. I have live in the South Midwest NW SW and everywhere in between and I came with my NY accent but put the attitude in the trash can where it belongs.
Southerners have been nothing but friendly to me, It helps if you smile and are pleasant . People take to that no matter where you're from. I have never had a go back to NY moment in 40 years. Embrace the culture wherever you go or stay put. We're all not like this guy.

You don't know NY obviously if you actually believe that a 7 figure salary won't buy you much. 1 million dollars which is obviously the lowest 7 figure number equates to approimately 500 K to 600 K NET per year after taxes. Using the 1/3 for rent equation that gives you 200 K per year for rent in Manhattan. That's 17 k per month for rent. A nice rental in Manhattan is 4000 to 500 per month . 17 thousand puts you in a 3 bedroom penthouse overlooking central Park. You'll still have 400 K left over to "play with" Your statement is absurd. Any rational person that doesn't dine 7 nights a week at Le cirque and rent a Hamptons summer home and dumbass things like that can live VERY well on 250 K per year gross, yes, in Manhattan, which will net over 150 K after taxes. This is plenty to live well in NY. Believe me I do it.

- 12/20/2019
Boulder is a stick a fork in it town great 70's, sucks now kinda place. Portland Boise Austin Seattle Denver cool once suck now. A place filled with artists and non materialist interesting folks gets discovered. Soon the amateurs from all over arrive with their Lexus SUV's their power couple money and real estate licences. The money obsessed yuppies arrive to buy up all the real estate to rent out to the suckers for 3500 month, Real estate goes through the roof as now demand outstrips supply.
Corporate Chain stores come in and are the final nail. Mom and pops cant afford the rent so they're out and now you're left with baby boomer hell power hiking than rushing to their yoga classes and tofu sandwich restaurants. The original people that made the place so attractive in the first place are long gone and you're left with these cretins. If you are lucky enough to find the next Boulder of 40 years ago, if that even exists here in the US, keep it to yourself and hope and pray it doesn't get discovered. Hint" If it's far enough East you might be able to avoid the rush and crush of the cursed Californians.

Cities are bursting at the seams. Believe me I know I've lived in Los Angeles and New York and a dozen other cities. You want big burly nasty large populations go to Los Angeles to see how you like it. I'm also sick of everybody complaining about "lack of diversity". What is that supposed to mean? Do you really think it's a good thing to be living amongst hundred and 50 ethnic groups and nationalities 26 different religions a huge stew and potpourri of squabbling minorities it don't get along and hate each other. Is nothing wrong with seeking out a place that you have a cultural commonality and social affinity with. You want diversity, again try Los Angeles. Everybody cell segregates any way and the more diversity the less cohesion. Go to the San Gabriel Valley outside of Los Angeles which is 100% Chinese, rent an apartment there and see how well you get accepted. Job growth? Go to medical school, become a doctor or some reasonable facsimile and you won't have a problem getting a job anywhere. I went to college outside of Pittsburgh in medical school in California and I can tell you I'll take Pittsburgh in a heartbeat any day over the mess that is this faux multicultural utopia that people are fleeing to escape from.

Limousines are plentiful and there are plenty of servants available to choose from the under-classes for everyday labor concerns.

Parka and meat loaf - 11/20/2019
Good for the old that like slow pace and cheap buffets. Also good for non-descript mid-westerners that don't like a lot of action. No nightlife or mountains to hike on. Flat terrain with cows and cornfields. No trees, flat grasslands only. People tucked in to bed at 10 Pm on Friday so if you're out looking for fun you'll be the only one. Driving in your car past a certain hour will profile you to be pulled over by the police who will think you're up to no good. Old guys will like it cause there's nothing going on and that's how they like it. The housing very inane and uninteresting. Very mid-western. Bring a Parka and golashes and you will be on your way to fitting in.

I think this phenomenon exists everywhere in the US outside of major cities. If you're single and over 30 something forget the suburbs college towns and the so called beautiful rural area. Adirondacks Catskills etc. It's NYC as tough as that is to acknowledge if you're single and want exposure to large numbers of other educated singles over a certain age. These other places are for families ( I really hate the "great place to raise a family"), mantra, retirees, ( another dreaded demographic), empty nester's (yikes), and of course the college kids that will only exist in their 17 to 22 year old bubbles.

Andreas you are correct though the ignorant responders to your post don't get it. With a so called booming economy in a predatory capitalist system quality of life gets worse for everybody. Increased traffic of course 30 per cent rise in housing prices since 2016 alone. L.A. 50 percent. How is that good for the working folks. restaurants are more crowded and everything costs more, everything. Cars, Gas, flights and 1000 other things. An over stimulated economy hurts all but the very rich. and what about the developers. With a raging economy they destoy everything in sight, plow down forests and build more and more crappy cheap homes and strip malls forever as far as the eye can se.. they rape pillage and destroy and than move on to destroy the next place. How is this a positive for anyone but the greedy developers. They have bulldozed tens of thousands of acres in Las Vegas recently and put up 1000 houses on 8 acres of dirt in 2 weeks and what's more is they are not affordable fot the masses. A 125 K house here in 2011 is now 500 K for the same place due to this "raging economy". So the city is uglier and more inane and sterile and soulless just more crappy 8 dollar an hour jobs and houses that they can't afford to live in. I agree with the general consensus of your point that the "stronger" an economy the worse the overall quality of life in every measurable way that manners is accurate. For those on thew outside looking in that want to be able to afford "things", an event that will cause these asset classes to go down by 30/40 per cent is actually good for all of us looking to buy in to this bubble economy after it hopefully bursts.

I disagree that it's a good place to live now if you're young. the young are not immune to the awfulness of Los Angeles in 219. The nightlife is not even any good no matter what hour age. The music scene is dead. It was once a great place to live when young but not now. The Sunset Strip was alive and exciting, now it's a ghost town. Could go on but it's too depressing. If I was young I's consider Toronto Montreal and European cities if I could swing it. Not so much the US these days.

re:

You are correct to not purchase here in Las Vegas. Your 20% number is right on the money. The case/Shiller index out of Yale which is the most highly respected indices of home pricing in the United States shows Vegas as being the singular most overpriced city in the country at about 20%. I was a victim in 2009 of my own stupidity. I purchased a condominium on the strip for 300,000 and within one year it went from $300,000 in value to $120,000 and stayed there for eight consecutive years. Strangely in the last year it went back up to 270,000 and I got out quick. Took a small loss but I think the guy the guy that purchased it is going to take a bath. I also have to agree with one of the commenters below that stated is really true that California is a destroying neighboring cities. They bring their blue politics with them which create the very thing that they tried to escape from in the first place. They've driven up prices in Boise Idaho to triple what they were just five years ago. Idahoans universally hate Californians though a large part of the state now is Northern California transplants. They brought a lot of pain and misery to Portland and Seattle as well which has been well documented. Las Vegas which was read is now moving to blue forever and the illegal problems you have in California have crossed over to Las Vegas making it a less livable place and it was when I first got here seven years ago. You're from San Francisco I suppose from your post so you probably have a emotional connection to the place but I tell you I hated it. I went to medical school there UCSF on Parnassus and I couldn't wait to get the hell out of there. This incidentally was at the time when San Francisco was supposedly a nice place to live back in the 1980s. I found it to be droll and uninteresting and yes the scenery is somewhat pre-and the weather is great but everything else about the place I couldn't stand. The people pretty much have no personality very Midwestern not very sarcastic not much wit rarely found the person with a sense of humor and I couldn't wait to get back to New York, back to the East Coast but then again most of us from back East feel that way. Today if you gave me $1 million house in San Francisco to live in or million dollar house in Las Vegas I would still choose Las Vegas over San Francisco. The homeless problem up there in the condition of the city is an atrocity. The traffic is possibly the worst in the country and wallet hub just came out with the best and worst run cities in the United States. Boise Idaho is number three and San Francisco was 149 out of 150. That sounds about right to me. I can't think of a worse place to live in the United States in the San Francisco Bay Area even if I had 10 figures in the bank I would despise living there. With that said, I do wish Californians would stay put and stop ruining the neighboring states which they been doing now for the last 20 to 30 years. Vegas seems fine to me. The summers are hot but not really that bad. There's no humidity and no bugs. It was 104° today and it felt like it was 80° out especially coming from back east with 90% humidity. I think the admonitions regarding the summers here are overblown from my own personal experience anyway. Is more to do here in regards to nightlife and many more options for shopping and eating. I happen to like the Walmart/target box store type of life. Things are half as expensive and from my perspective that's not a bad thing. This thousands of food options here healthy food options for under $10 a shot. Try finding that in San Francisco. All in all I think this is a better place to live. Better than San Francisco and Los Angeles in fact better than any place I've lived in California and I practice medicine from San Diego to San Francisco including Los Angeles and you could have the whole state as far as I'm concerned. I will say there are better places to live in Los Angeles but I wouldn't be going West to find them I be going east.

With unfair but still strong affirmative action programs in place, the Negro can take advantage of educational opportunities and secure professional positions within the marketplace and afford those homes that they are being driven out of.

I would not call the beach and attraction but rather a detraction. What else let's see… Magic Mountain and Disneyland. Anaheim gangs and high crime. The mountains are parched with very little green and those that do have some trees are due to get burned down in the yearly firestorms that pervade the state. You mentioned that you get to meet people from all over. 90% of all new transplants to Los Angeles are Mexican/Asian. If that's your thing fine but if you're looking to meet sophisticated and educated Europeans from Sweden or Norway or Denmark for a couple of dozen other European cities good luck with that. I spend half the year in Lake Geneva Switzerland and the other half living in Vienna Austria I can promise you isn't the one of them that has ever had the desire to visit Los Angeles no less live there.

Cheryl, there's the real world and then is the world that we all wish we can live in. In the real world employers are always going to choose the more attractive person whether it be male or female. It's harsh to put it that way but human nature is what it is. If an exceptionally attractive tall man was to apply for the same job as a 4'6" overweight balding man, who do you think would get the job?. Also I have to say that employers and rightfully so, have got to consider the health implications of hiring someone who is overweight. Obesity is a precursor to many medical issues including hypertension diabetes peripheral vascular disease arthritis and many other medical conditions that I will not get into. Overweight or obese employees miss much more work over the long haul due to medical reasons then those that are healthy and in shape. Again not meant to be offensive but your weight is something you can do something about. It is not out of your control as it would be for example if someone was to expect that you would have to be 6 feet 5 inches tall and have blue eyes and freckles. These are genetically unalterable but your weight or anyone's weight for that matter is for the most part with rare exceptions controllable and with dedication and discipline you could become one of those "slim" females that you were referring to in you post.

Everyone will look at themselves and say can you believe how stupid we were to pay $872,000 for a 90-year-old two bedroom one bath clip joint without a garage or central air-conditioning because it's only 1.3 miles away from the beach. Normal people can't be participating in the market out there, it's got to be Chinese real estate investment trusts or air B&B speculators. Otherwise it doesn't make any sense. Most of the housing looks like Third World property to me. The kind of houses when I was growing up I used feel sorry for people that had to live in them. Small, old, no yard, no land and wished right between your neighbors to either side. I think people selling now and getting out are getting out while the getting is good. I have to disagree with one point that Mike made. I really don't think that the only thing that California and San Diego has going for it is its natural beauty. I grew up in New England with hundreds of miles of country roads and beautiful green landscapes and water feature is legs/rivers waterfalls wherever you would look to the left into the right everywhere green and beautiful. I don't see any of that in California with the exception of a few very isolated areas of beauty which have been completely cannibalized by developers and guys like Mitt Romney that can afford a $10 million house overlooking the ocean in La Jolla. Get on a freeway or any roadway between San Diego and Los Angeles and tell me with his any natural beauty to be seen anywhere. Parched freeways, crumbling infrastructure, no green spaces. I see no or very little natural beauty anywhere in Southern California. It's a desert littered with strip malls and planned communities stock up on top of some shaved off hill/mountain. Waldorf communities cinder block walls. No natural terrain i.e. forests to create natural boundaries between homes. Parts of northern California near the coast/Yosemite a few other places but most of the state looks like the surface of the moon with freeways.

I've never been a victim of crime. I've driven close to 150,000 miles in eight years here in Las Vegas and have never had a single traffic incident. Never. Not even a fender bender. Alcohol and drugs? Of course as you know they are everywhere. I don't drink and do not remember one single encounter since I have lived here when I have even had a conversation with someone that has been intoxicated. I disagree as well with your assessment about middle-class lifestyle and Las Vegas not being a good fit. I believe it to be just the opposite. I've lived in Manhattan New York City, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco. Now those are cities that definitively speaking have no real middle-class or no chance for the middle class to even afford a residence. Here, that's not true. I'm a medical doctor and have not had any problems finding a job as you put it. Yes, I went to medical school and maybe your review is not geared towards professionals but I can tell you: the town with an M.D. degree you going to be making well into the six figures your first day at work. I know I did. And all of my colleagues as well. Even though I'm a physician I still consider myself middle-class and you probably are aware housing here is a third of what it is a more sexy cities in the United States such as New York or San Francisco. Your first comment regarding no future. Multibillion-dollar sports franchises have either moved to Las Vegas or are currently in the process of moving here. Businesses like that don't relocate and commit billions of dollars without a future. As far as the people are concerned they seem pretty nice to me. I treat elderly patients all day long and they are grateful and generous in their kindness towards me and are happy to have someone that cares for their well-being. I really don't recall any negative instances at all not a single one in the eight years I've been here with any person. Maybe one road rage incident but that's about it. I think if someone sees the strip in downtown as dens of iniquity rather than just places to have a good time, but I just look at them as places to step out once a month to see a show, have a nice dinner, people watch, take date to go shopping. I've lived in some pretty boring places. Cities that had several million people that had nothing to do after 10 o'clock at night. Vegas does. I like that idea though I happen to like a city that has some edge to it and maybe a little bit of danger as long as I can keep in arms distance from it. I'm sorry that your experiences here have not been the same as mine or my colleagues and/or friends but I found the most of the reasons that a person either likes or dislikes a place is based upon what's going on internally as opposed to what's going on around them. That's just my observation. I do agree with you though about one thing and that is that will do tend to isolate themselves and segregate themselves or in their homes. Blinds are drawn and very rarely do people interact with each other. That's too bad there is a lack of community here which I think bothers some people more than others. I don't mind it as I like to be left alone anyway. I'm not really a wife and two kids and neighborhood BBQ type of guy but I do get your point on that one. I still think Vegas is a good call for someone that has middle-class money, likes relatively good weather with the exception of some hot months in the summer and wants to live in a city with action and things going on around them even if they don't partake but every once in a while. Stay sober. Don't gamble. Stay away from bad influences and you'll be just fine out here. It's not magic and applies universally to pretty much any place you choose to live. It does help to have a good education and a strong career I'll admit that. Anyway, my time here has been positive so far. And one more thing, reading about how terrible the doctors are in Las Vegas? Do your homework and choose wisely. My neurosurgeon is valedictorian from Stanford medical school. My cardiologist was second in his class at Harvard. I could go on and on but there are intellectually strong, well skilled and talented physicians out here. There are also bad ones. I could say the same for New York City Boston and Portland Oregon for that matter.

I don't dislike it here quite as much as you, but I agree the Dentists are the worst of the so called profession clas in L.V. Try inding one by the name of Smith or Jones to start with. They come her from 3rd world places and somehow get a license here in NV which has more loose licensure standards. They are out to rip offcan from as much as they the americans and than scoot back to their home countries with the loot.

Get a gun and or a dog. You don't need the police. Learn to shoot and draw quick like Marshall Matt Dillon. Get a bottle of Testosterone from the local Doc and shoot up once a week. Bulk up at the gym. Also shave your head bald and grow some sort of neck beard or goatee. Sneer when passerby's look at you and never look away first. It helps if you have crazy eyes. Keep your blinds drawn at all times. Come out twice a day to walk your war torn Pit, and make sure everyone sees you. Wear camouflage pants and a black security t shirt. Start there.

re:
Crowded, Expensive and Full of Criminals! - 9/30/2018
The older you get the more you can compare a place you remember from a long time ago to what it's like today. A place like New York City got better in the 1990s for example than the 1970s. More livable, cleaner, less crime. Gotten too sterile for me these days, but has been generally improving over the decades, but Los Angeles in my experience has been steadily declining decade to decade. It's much worse now than it was 10 years ago. It's worse 10 years ago than it was 20 years ago. Etc. Getting more and more dirty, more more Third World and strangely more and more expensive. People from war-torn or significantly economically depressed countries/political repression can come here and have a better life but if you were raised in first world settings as most of us here in the US were, chances are you're not going to like it there. Maybe if you're very young, in your 20s it could be tolerable, especially if you don't mind being around 140 different ethnic groups whom you have nothing in common with. Los Angeles was not much until the 1920s. Two or three great decades during the Golden age and then the steady decline began. I wasn't around in the 1930s but I've read a lot and would've loved to have been around then. Must've been a great place to live. I was around in the 1980s though and as difficult of a place as it was then in many ways today it is 10 times worse in every way.

Second most beautiful place. I guess you're referring to Malibu as being the most beautiful?. Had a house right on Trancas and PCH across from Cindy Crawford. She was on the ocean side LOL. Never thought much of Malibu. Never got all the hoopla. Spent years there. PCH does not have much romance. More like an interstate than a lesson beach access road. Malibu with all its houses so closely packed together could barely fit a piece of looseleaf between the properties. Sarasota much more beautiful. Were beautiful Beecher's and much much nicer sunsets. More green and just overall a much nicer place IMO. Malibu seemed to me to be rather old and dilapidated without much charm. Always thought the East Coast beaches were more quaint and pretty. You're making a good choice and I would not recommend for anyone to move to that bastion of hell Los Angeles.

The whole state is a cesspool. Arguing about what's better Laguna or Huntington is like two homeless guys are doing about who has the dirtier pair of underwear. Lived on and off and that place LA all the way down to Laguna for 25 years on and off. For anyone visiting that is trying to figure out how can some old shack 90 years old termite written shack that sell in Ohio for $32,000 is over $1 million. You got me. I'm an educated guy but I can't figure it out never could. It can't be deal more of Southern California because it has nothing going for it. Features are prettier in Florida and the mountains are more handsome in New Hampshire. At some oddball thing going on with overseas investors and air B&B purchasers. I think the Chinese are buying up tens of thousands of properties in California as part of some real estate investment trust. Never to live in what sort of like a stock that they make a dividend off of and a certain percentage of return based on rental income. It's hard to say but no normal right thinking person would ever buy property anywhere Southern California I have never seen dirtier uglier homes with more poor infrastructure, a more sorry lack of community and this multiethnic multicultural hodgepodge of 150 ethnic groups all self segregating and like squirrels fighting for the same nut. I got there in the 80s and it was bad then but I'd say it's 10 times worse now in every way that a place can be worse. I would say that every single place in the United States is better than living in Southern California. I've lived on and off in 40 different states and I would choose living outside of the Ohio on a 1 acre farm over one of these dilapidated old slumlord apartment complexes where one-bedroom units sell for over $600,000 any day. I hate that place I really do.

re: Glad I at least checked it out

From your review, you are probably much younger than me. I remember Seattle in the 70s, San Francisco in the 70s Portland etc.… Then they became "it" cities. Everyone rushed in their reducing the quality of life and at the same time raising the prices. Paradoxical that that can be the case but I've seen that with most American cities with the exception of New York which has not really gotten larger and more populated but has become much more beautiful. Seattle not the case. I will tell you I lived there for two summers and you will need air-conditioning. Particularly if you're a athletic person i.e. male and perspire often or heat humidity sensitive you're going to need it. The old ploy in the Northwest and even in California to this day is "you don't need it here". That's a lie. Because all 100° in Portland Oregon. Several people died last summer because they didn't have a sea. Don't believe the lies and prepare yourself. I portable AC which was exactly what you're talking about. Get a double hose unit not a single hose. It works better. But even the most powerful portable AC will only cool off about 300 ft.² so I hope you've got a small master bedroom. As far as your comment on Seattle being beautiful, I hate to be a naysayer but I really didn't think so. I grew up in New England which to my mind is significantly more beautiful than anything in the Northwest. East Coast rivers streams waterfalls inlets jetties and East Coast trees and forests I found to be much more beautiful. You mentioned you were thinking of leaving and were concerned you would not find as beautiful a place to live. For my money, I can name at least 10 cities of over 200,000 people between Pennsylvania and Maine that are much more beautiful than Seattle to my mind. Okay you've got those big volcanoes there but that's about it. You have my status first and spruce trees but on the East Coast or 20 or 30 different variety of trees which account for the beautiful fall foliage that we have backed their. Try Boston, Providence, Portland Maine, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Manchester New Hampshire… I can go on and on. For my money Boston it is way way heads and tails above Seattle Washington in just about every category regarding quality of life. You don't have those in a boring robotic like techies which dominate the landscape. Much brighter people in Boston, better universities and people have much more personality. Far superior city. I was a Manhattan to but I'm partial because that's where I'm from. I found the two most overrated and overpriced cities in the United States of America to be Portland Oregon on an Seattle Washington. I could go on and on as to why a but if you are not a big fan of hipsters and techies then you're going to find the East Coast much more amenable. I know I do. No comparison. Good luck with your search and getting out of Seattle is a smart move. Incidentally, I agree with you about the housing. Old, rundown "ranchers". Houses that 20 years ago were purchased by blue-collar sanitation workers are now selling for $800,000 just because they're near "Seattle". So why, it's still in the old rancher the matter where the hell is located. Be careful not to get sucked into the real estate Russian roulette wheel of musical chairs. Good luck

re: Avoid Houston
- 5/31/2018
Your review of Houston was spot on. Unlike the other commentor below JB. I too am 60 years old and single. The demographic difference between a married retired couple and a single guy is like night and day. These reviews are best evaluated and analysed by matching up your particular demographic to the person writing the review. This other reviewer JB is already married with a husband and has no interest in the single scene or anything in regards relating to your comments about the women of Houston which from my perspective is a huge reason to either move or not to move to a place and I found a similar experience with the women in Houston that you described. I've lived in California as well and that's a fool's paradise but just because one place is a sewer doesn't mean that moving to another place that's a bit less of a sewer is any rational reason to move there. The US has much nicer places to live then Texas and California that's for damn sure. For those that have the means and the energy and strength and courage and happen to be single and free, a consideration regarding a move out of the country is not such a bad idea either. You're right, Texas is not what was 30 years ago but I've lived in 20 different states and 40 different cities and I can say the same thing about all of them. There are better places to live outside of the US. I'm not talking about Costa Rica or Nicaragua either but if you can afford it , Europe, New Zealand, for all types of reasons that are more appropriate to my particular demographic and interests anyway. Good luck
