What Kiplinger.com had to say: "No U.S. city can match the Big Apple in terms of job opportunities or cultural fare. Yes, it can be ridiculously expensive, especially for those on a starting salary. But with a little digging, you can find cheaper rents in outer-borough neighborhoods or across the Hudson River in Hoboken, N.J. An extensive public transit system makes getting around a snap. And it's the city that never sleeps. No wonder droves of recent grads seek their fortunes here each year."
Pros: Unmatched career opportunities, culture and nightlife, falling crime rates
Cons: Sky-high rents and cost of living in most areas
