How many times have you been to Manhattan? That's like one of the last places I'd want to go for vacation lol.

The Colorado choice is solid. I would want a ski chalet for sure, either in CO or Vermont or maybe Snowshoe in West Virginia.

Beach house for sure but don't know enough.

NYC in winter? Have you ever done it? It's miserable. So ******* cold. And the NYE stuff is a nightmare.

Have you ever gone for vacation? Not being a smart ***, but I HATE going to NYC for business, and I really enjoy going there to party\hang out. I imagine it would be even better in an $8 mil condo

I have never seen snow, but I like Christmas. Christmas in New Yark seems fun.

Mrs Rico has wanted to spend a Christmas in New York for several years now. I keep saying no because family is here but now that we have an imaginary family of our own, I am more open to the idea.

The vibe/energy there is soo much different from San Francisco. I love it.

Nice cabin/lodge type setting in the Rockies of Colorado.

Beachfront setup somewhere in the area between Clearwater Beach and Sarasota Florida (or Naples).

High rise condo setup in Vegas.

My Dad's entire family is from there, I have spent more time in NY than most people. I got it out of my system a long time ago but I understand the allure...but to me the "crush" of living there is very real. Hardly any sun unless you're very high up, dirty, smelly, expensive, etc.

nah man, the nice sections of nyc arenít smelly or dirty anymore. 10-15 years ago everything was

soho/greenich village is ******* awesome

Bar/restaurant scene is off the hook

With enough coin you can do anything you want. Tons of awesome roof pools that are like little resorts.

$10 bucks says 99% of the time you go you stick to the general area your family is in. I always do whenever Iím visiting someone. Itís not like other cities where you pretty much go all over the city when you live there. Mainly because nobody drives after they get there.

On my last trip there I went to Flushing (US Open), then to a friend's apartment in Murray Hill, then home to sleep at my cousins' place at 102nd and 5th right across from the park. Where's my $10?

Living there is cool for a while, but gets old, and the allure wears off.

1.) Cabin in the Smoky Mtns. in TN, near Gatlinburg but off the beaten path
2.) Something off the grid in Wyoming, for complete isolation
3.) For the beach getaway I'd also choose the gulf coast of FL, but probably more like Destin. No thanks to Siesta Key, it's a tourist trap. Maybe Anna Maria Island.
