A Love-Hate Relationship With Biggest Cities

Americans have a love-hate relationship with their largest cities, according to a survey of 2,500 employees and small business owners.

Human Capital Institute, a Washington-D.C.-based human resources think tank, asked employees and entrepreneurs to name the U.S. city where they’d be most eager to relocate.

The winner? New York City.

The loser? New York City.

Survey-takers who liked New York pointed to its entertainment options, readily available transportation and business opportunities. Survey-takers who panned it pointed out its high cost of living.

Here are the rest of the cities on the picks and pan lists. New York isn’t the only city to appear on both. Cities use the information in determining how to market themselves to attract out-of-town workers.
