    Please give honest and detailed reasons. Taking into account: Natural Disasters (SoCal has Wildfires and Earthquakes); Pest problems (SoCal has Roaches and Bugs due to the intense heat); hawter Women (SoCal is said to have hawtest Women as many r in the Entertainment Industry); and if u have dwellings in other Countries so u will be in SoCal or NY at certain times.

    Thx to all that chime in :)

    Neither? Sorry....if forced, NY so closer to family.
    I only post to highlight there are many factors other than ‘hawtest women’/Pests/weather individuals (and families) weigh.

    ‘Money is no object‘ only removes that factor from the Decision, not a defining feature in of itself.

    I have lived in both areas. Corona in SoCal and Long Island. Although it's been quite a while ago I doubt anything would change my mind. My vote goes for SoCal all the way. New York is fun to visit but its just not my taste. If you are building a mansion I doubt it's in Manhattan so maybe the area you are looking at is nicer - the place is just blah to me. SoCal is sunshine, beaches, mountains an hour or so away. Twistie roads and elevation changes. Beautifuler (I know not a word) women AND it is the Motocross Capitol of the world. I could go on. But you don't care what I like. Get what you want. Also I could live anywhere locale wise - and choose neither. I pick TX.

    I live is So CA and have for many decades having grown up in Northern and Southern CA. I have had a successful business carrier in So CA. So, I have a pretty lengthy history in So CA.

    CA in general used to be a great state to live in progressive but not socialistic, great business opportunities, reasonable taxes, great weather, relaxed life-style. Well a lot of that has changed for the worse, high taxes, substantial regulation, difficult to start a new business, very socialistic, quite intolerant of conservative views. Currently business and people are moving out of CA to other localities. Most of the folks moving into CA come from south of the border so the demographic is changing rapidly and has been for about the last 15-20 years.

    There have always been irregular earthquake issues but they don’t seem to be much of a deterrent of living a good life (i.e.. hurricanes, tornadoes which occur regularly in the south and east). The brush fires occur every year in hilly rural areas which are very desirable living areas because of view and less dense population etc. So often this is where larger homes are often located. So they are a real issue to be concern about. I live in this type of rural hilly area. The beach areas are very expensive to build since the land is very dear and the coastal commission and cities/counties have very difficult building regulations generally, such that the project expensive and very frustrating to complete.

    Well the weather is still great but were it not for our family living close and our life time friends in the area, I would not move here and definitely not build a mansion here. Try renting/owning a condo in a desirable area first for a year or two to get a feel for areas you think you would consider building a mansion. One opinion for what it is worth.:rolleyes:

    Doesn't Miami have hurricanes? Also it has Latinas and I like Blondez.

    Is Manhattan better than the beaches?

    Manhattan is awesome. Just wouldn't want to live there. At least not primary residence. :)
