Former East Coaster (native Lawng Islander to be exact, minus the native accent). Moved to Los Angeles about a year ago via NYC, and quite unoriginally, am more than satisfied with the climate. If LA added all the friends and family I left in NY and subtracted the driving/parking bullsh*t it'd be a damn near perfect sum of a town. But don't get the wrong idea... I hate math.
Conversely, I like words, witty interchanges, empathy, philosophical introspection, and new ways of looking at the world.
The last line of my profile is important.
If you agree with this or at least like debating/discussing this kinda stuff, we'll get along like peas and carrots:
