NY is really only unbearable for a week or two in the winter and a few weeks in the summer. Most of the summer is uncomfortable but not too terrible, not nearly as bad as FL. And what NY'ers call unbearable cold would probably be just an average day for CLE...


I'm not saying the weather is great here, I would probably call it "consistently mediocre," it's usually not that great but it rarely gets really bad either.
I can't take the stench of garbage during the summer.

Texas jobs that are available are not really Jewish jobs per se, there are tons of jobs if you are up to drilling wells, operating heavy equipment or driving rigs. For the rest of us there is churning credit cards
Is that under finance?  :)
And what about health care??

Some parts of manhattan (eg harlem) are around 10 degrees warmer than the rest even during winter. Plus, you get all the benefits of secondhand "smoke" without the illegality of it.

Seems like this discussion comes up every few months in this thread.  :)

My opinion after having lived in the Northeast for most of my life and moving to S. Florida about a year ago. 4 months of brutal heat is wayyy better than 4 months of brutal cold.

I won't say I don't miss the cold and the smell of wood burning fireplaces a little but that's what wintertime trips to Colorado are for.

Boca= mouth
Raton=rat

Does the name "Rat's mouths" have any bearing on the city or population?

Quote
In Spanish "Boca" means "mouth" and "Ratón" means "mouse" (not "rat" as is it is commonly mistranslated.) However, in nautical terms the word "Boca" refers to an inlet. The original name "Boca de Ratones" appeared on eighteenth century maps associated with an inlet in the Biscayne Bay area of Miami.

Does Chicago have the worst weather of any major city? Colder than YYZ in the winter, hotter than NYC in the summer. But hey, they have shallots and milts.

not hotter than NYC, and nice Lake Shore Drive - almost a beach. Skateboarding, biking, jogging.
Better priced single family homes. Nice people. Good choice of schools and shuls.       + good food.

How often do locals from Lincolnwood go to lake shore drive? ??? Not sure it factors in to pros and cons....
But the housing is definitely much more reasonable and the people much nicer. Don't think the schools are any better than any similar sized Jewish community. And you do have two great restaurants.

Housing may be cheap as compared to NY or LA , but I would not consider it reasonable....
