Default need advise.

I know it's a SUBJECTIVE matter but just asking for opinions.
if you were to choose between Flushing hospital IM ( NEW YORK ) & St. Vincent charity hospital IM (CLEVELAND),which one would you choose & why?
I know some people will tell me ( choose the one you like ).
that's the problem;I like them both equally.
so I'm looking for an objective opinion on the merits & demerits of each one if someone has more information about them.
thank you

Well it's very much cleared that you like both of the programs equally. Now the question is where would you like to live for 3 long years ? NY ? MA? My wife used to live in NY. She loves NY according to her there is no place like NY.. Although it's expensive. Flushing is also not cheap. 1bedroom is about 1200 dollars.. Transportation is expensive and other bills will also b higher than the west coast.. As we now live in west coast she can tell the difference that starting from gas price to electricity it's cheaper in west coast..
Other than that NY is very well diverse specially flushing hospital yes you'll see all sort of patients .. MA cleaveland it's less diverse.
So I guess these are the things u should consider before moving to a new place where u know that u will b living for 3 good long years.
East cost there is no saving if u r planning to pay off bills you'll need to make some plans for that.
