Loved it here, on one block you have the library, arts and culture, education, and economic centers. Then a few blocks up you have the train/bus stations, and school districts. The cost of living to be honest is very pricey and the job market is not so bad. If you're seeking a face paced job industry, this is the place to be.
Summers were certainly a blast here; there is always something to do in the city. Winters were very cold. When it snowed it snowed, I have experienced up to 24 inches when I lived there.
I could not get enough of the exciting attractions and amenities just a few blocks away. Ancient Monuments, theatres, theme Parks, aquariums, restaurants, nightclubs, spas and shopping centers. Jonny D's Pizza on Broadway is one of my comfort food pizza shops. Their pizzas and cal-zones are one of a kind. Although I no longer live there, I come back to visit every year on my vacation.
