Having a fair distribution of individuals from New York City, Los Angeles and Miami whether native born and bred or just simply by way of current living situation, throughout our office pool we feel that we have a good geographic representation of the urban trifecta.
Many many years ago the argument used to be whether or not you were an East Coast or West Coast person and never the two could agree upon either for better or for worse which was the better to live. A die hard New Yorker would take it to the grave that they could never live in Los Angeles and vice versa. Now a third member has entered or at least somewhat elbowed their way in to the discussion, Miami.
For all too long Miami has been the runner up, effectively a sixth borough of New York City. Every New Yorker went to Miami, or the greater tri-counties of Miami-Dade Broward and Palm Beach. Where you went depended largely upon where your Grandparents probably retired. Until the late 90’s Miami was still pretty much a fringe city, and Miami Beach a place where people waited to die. Now of course that has all changed. Miami and the Beaches has forced itself to become a world class destination with sparkle and glitz. Reasonably good restaurants are to be found all over and a burgeoning art scene livens up the warehouse neighborhoods.
North Or South
So the battle these days is no long simply are you a west coast person or an east coast person, but also extends to north or south.
In the accompanying articles to come, here, the Social Gazette crew will do their best to weigh in on that battle, New York, Miami and Los Angeles.
