    Ok, this article has got it wrong. I've lived in the northeast corridor, the areas *outside of NYC* for ages, and let me tell you, Manhattan's the last place I'd want to actually live & work in.

    I think many of us like being able to drive and find a parking lot, in a vast network of leafy/green suburbs, than being in a concrete jungle, hopping from one bus/subway station to another. So while that urban cul-de-sac may be fun for 20-somethings, Woody Allen, and the Sex In the City women, it's a type of prison for everyone else.

    What Silicon Valley has, is that ability to hop in one's car and drive to either the shoreline, SF, or Marin and soak in the natural settings, outside of buildings and basement bars. Likewise, in the New England region, it's about the same stuff but we prefer smaller seaside towns like Mystic, Newport, etc.
