I had to go for East Coast because: 1) NYC is my most-visited/2nd favorite city. The first time I went to NYC when I was young for some reason I couldn't help but think "why didn't I grow up here?" 2) Hip-hop
MIDWEST! Why? Because this is where all y'all are going to want to be when global warming melts the ice caps and floods the coasts! Plus, there's plenty of space to run around naked and hollering without fear of alerting the nearest neighbors that live over 2 miles away!
East Coast all the way. Born and raised in Brooklyn, here's how I see it on food:
East coast drowns the west coast in food. New York pizza tops any pizza anyway else (in the US). Perhaps I'm biased because I'm used to really good pizza, but any pizza outside of New York isn't up to par. Sure, you'll find one or two places, but pizza is generally better on the east. The west is a lousy pizza region. East gets a big edge from pizza, and in general, Italian. Plus, you could get some pretty sick lobster in maine, some other great seafood in new england.
I'll give the west coast has a better burger - In-N-Out tops every other burger joint. Other original west coast food joints (Fat Burger, Jack In The Box) are popping up on the east, west gets no points there. But, east does have good burgers, so west isn't that much better. Same for mexican. You can get really good mexican on the east.
That's just some small things that came to mind - east coast is just better.
Plus on sports: Seriously. All the champs are in the east. The Yankees are in the east. No competition.
