Back to the bay

Jonathan Haas, personal

While I'm not originally from the Bay Area, I've spent the vast majority of my adult life here. After living in New York City for a few years, I've recently moved back. Here are the top reasons why:

  1. The weather is better.

There's no denying that the weather in New York City can be tough to deal with. From the brutally cold winters to the steamy summers, it's just not ideal. In the Bay Area, the weather is much more moderate, and it's definitely a huge perk.

  1. The food is better.

Don't get me wrong, there are some great restaurants in New York City. But in the Bay Area, the food is just on another level. From fresh seafood to incredible farm-to-table cuisine, there's something for everyone to enjoy.

  1. The people are better.

This is a personal opinion, but I find the people in the Bay Area to be friendlier and more down-to-earth than those in New York City. There's just a different vibe here that I really love.

  1. The cost of living is better.

While the cost of living in the Bay Area is high, it's even higher in New York City. But the trade-off is that you get a lot more for your money. From larger apartments to more affordable restaurants, you can get a lot more for your money here.

  1. The tech scene is better.

The tech scene in the Bay Area is one of the best in the world. From the incredible startups to the massive tech giants, there's a lot to love about the tech scene here. And the Bay Area is home to some of the most innovative companies in the world, including Google, Facebook, and Apple. The caliber of talent here is just incredible, and startups are popping up all over the place. It's a great place to be if you're interested in tech, but it's also a great place to be if you're interested in other industries.

  1. Nature is better.

While New York City is a great city, it's not exactly known for its natural beauty. But in the Bay Area, you can enjoy the beautiful outdoors all year round. From the gorgeous beaches to the incredible hiking trails, there's a lot to love about the Bay Area.

Overall, I'm so happy to be back in the Bay Area. It feels like home, and I'm really enjoying being back.
