Where should I move? (Big city, young professionals, good weather, great public tran
I am lucky enough to be able to move anywhere to set up a new office for my company as long as it is a major city, US preferred but possibly internationally. We are running a new trial that can be done from anywhere.
So I'd like to go somewhere that matches what I've always wanted from a city:
-Big, with a ton going on
-Great public transit
-Lots of educated young professionals
-High Jewish population
-Great weather (I don't like winters)
Programs: AA, DL Gold, HH Dia, UA, pretty sure I have at least two of those buy 10 get 1 free coffee cards

Ayn Rand: Bad writing, worse philosophy, criminally stupid economics.
I'd also recommend Chicago (aside from the weather) or NY for the Jewish communities in both cities. PDX has a diverse smattering of Judaic denominations. Are you looking for Reform, Conservative, Orthodox?
Singapore. I don't think there's a high population of Jewish though....
Vancouver is nice too but the weather isn't that great sometimes....but not as cold as the other cities in Canada like Montreal and Toronto.
I used to work in London, UK and ticks the boxes (except the weather...) but that was 8 years ago. I don't know how it's like now.
I'd vote for San Diego--great weather, a good bus system and a nice train system (one line goes right to the Mexican boarder). A great zoo, Balboa park has many great museums. The Jewish population ranks 80th for the US.
Los Angeles public trans is pretty good and getting better. I LOVE Los Angeles and it has everything you desire. I can't remember, did you mention beaches?
Well, maybe we have a winner after all
It certainly meets all the other requirements. Can't exactly say it has a large PERCENTAGE of college grads, but there are plenty of schools there and lots of educated people living and working there. Scores well on the Jewish front, too. And there is always something going on. Car chases, wild fires, mud slides, earthquakes.. ha ha .. just kidding. It's got tons of stuff going on. Unless you like the NFL. It doesn't have that.
Lots happening? NY, Chicago, LA, SF, Boston, maybe. Sort of depends upon what you want to be happening. Is it artistic (then NY), intellectual (then Boston), high tech (then SF, Boston), political (DC, though these days one could argue that nothing happens in DC).
