Re: What is your favorite state in the US?

New York - my home state.  Home to the world's greatest city of the same name.

 

I live on a wonderful island called Manhattan!

I couldn't agree with you more.  To add:  New York USE to be a beautiful place to live, until it became what it is now.  Too blue - I'll leave it at that.


@fitfuninformed.  That’s mostly the NYC area. The rest of the state is mostly not blue except maybe bigger cities upstate. Since most of the population is NYC that’s what happened. NY state is huge. Of course you have to put up with the state government but that is a result of NYC. Actually I am the opposite of you.

WI, four seasons, beautiful lakes and forests, Door County, sports (Brewers, Packers, Bucks), great universities, summer festivals in Milwaukee, EAA, there is truly something for everyone in WI. Can easily travel to Minneapolis  or Chicago if you need a big city fix.

We've lived in various areas of the country, PA, IN, VT, NC, TX, and back to NC.  I have to say they all have their good points and not so good.  I really don't have a favorite.

@ALRATIBA 

I was born on the lower east side of NYC in 1940 ----- it sure has changed. We lived in a small apartment building and knew all the great neighbors. Rent was less than $50/month - when my family moved to Brooklyn in 1950 - our rent in a bigger apartment building was $50/month. Everyone could afford a roof-over-their-heads and very few people owned a car. Didn't need a car - just took the trolley, bus or subway. People walked everywhere - so u actually saw your neighbors. I'm in California many, many years - and I still Love NewYawkers - and I still have my NY accent.

Woman Very Happy
