  11. I'd choose Philly because of the weather, I don't like hot weather. Also, its near NYC.

  14. Phoenix actually seems more expensive.

  15. I'm going with Phili, they got cheesesteaks. Phoenix is in the desert and full of idiots as far as I can tell. Really, rather then the value of homes, the number of degrees held seems more important to me, the place will be more expensive to live, but you will have better neighbors.

  19. Even with the heat, I'd take Phoenix. Phoenix is much closer to Vegas.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I would prefer Philly, because its closer to where I live in MI, and it's warmer then where I am now, but Phoenix might be too warm.

  24. Without knowing 'that' much about either city, I guess I'd rather live in Phoenix. I do like city-scapes but that picture with the mountain is far too inviting.
