13 Reasons Why Living On The East Coast Rocks!

Born in NYC and raised in Brooklyn, I’ve always only known and loved the east coast. I think folks from the west coast don’t appreciate the east coast as much as they should. Here are just a few reasons why the east coast rocks! 

I’ve lived in PA now for 25 years and while it’s a huge cry from NYC. It’s home for us now and more importantly – it’s the EAST COAST! Since we are only an hour and a half from NYC, I still get to go there a lot. I’ve also worked there my whole life. I’m still an east-coaster for sure! So, in honor of the east coast, I’ve composed a list of reasons the east coast rocks! 

We adore Neil deGrasse Tyson – he is a New Yorker of course!

And Dunkin Donuts! (well now they have a few stores on the west coast big deal!)

New York Cityenough said! and the people of NYC – they are tough, but kind, money-hungry but charitable, materialistic, but they know what really matters. To quote an anonymous person on the internet, “In NYC we sail the Atlantic, have fifty million different types of restaurants, take long walks, shop at fifty million stores, attend fashion shows, all this while we’re thinking, talking and walking fast, and simultaneously braving all the elements political and otherwise.”

The Freedom Tower stands strong in NYC!

New Jersey – it rocks and so does Chris Christie. Christopher James Christie is an American politician, former federal prosecutor, and political commentator who served as the 55th Governor of New Jersey from 2010 to 2018. Even with the Bridgegate scandal, he is still a good politician. He tries!

Museums are more prevalent, and attractions are more interesting.

Hardly ever an earthquake – that alone makes me shiver.

Our Food – Our hot pastrami sandwiches, pizza, and cheesesteaks are amazing!  Katz’s deli in NYC – slam dunk!

Accents and Dialects – ours are wayyyyyy cooler!

The East Coast has the smartest state (Vermont), the biggest city (New York City), the richest state (Connecticut), lowest obesity rate (ALL of New England), best dressed (New York, Connecticut, Washington D.C, and Boston) and we love our Maryland and Baltimore (Oh fun fact about Maryland – referred to as Little America it’s possible to take a sail on the Chesapeake Bay, hike Appalachian mountain trails, hit the town and the shops at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and explore the rural beauty of the Eastern Shore).

East Coast sports are better than yours. It’s a fact. Seriously, look at the numbers.

Winter – we love snow and cold weather – ask anyone who lives here and if they didn’t like the cold weather, they moved to Florida – it’s a win/win!

The East coast is drenched in history, and for good reason. The East has the first British colony ever settled in North America (Jamestown, VA), the first state admitted to the Union (Delaware), the first University (Harvard 1636), the first daily newspaper (Pennsylvania Packet and General Advertiser, Philadelphia, 1784) and a ton of other historical landmarks.

Our music – is insane! We have loads of talent around these parts! Bruce, Bon Jovi, Debra Harry (Blondie), Whitney Houston, Frank Sinatra, and those are just some!

  1. I’m so torn about my opinion on this post! I grew up in Southern California and then moved to Philadelphia after college and now live back in So Cal so I’m a big fan of both coasts!!! I agree with so many of the things on your list…they’re why I loved living on the East Coast! But I also live the west coast…I’m so torn!

  2. Hi Julie! At least you got to experience the best of both worlds! I’ve been to California and I loved it! It is sooooooo beautiful for sure! Thanks much for stopping by and commenting.

  3. You grabbed me right away– I love the Beach Boys (thanks to my dad :)! I’ve spent time on the West Coast and love visiting- but you’re right, there is so much to love about the East Coast :) I love the fact that the Atlantic is 10x more swim-able than the Pacific, for one thing! And of course, NYC. Plus Philadelphia, Boston, DC, Portland- so many great cities on our coast. And the seasons- I love the change of seasons; you just can’t get that anywhere else :)

  4. Hi Christy – I adore them too….musical icons for sure! Everyone is always dissing the East coast so I thought I would do and say something positive about it. I love it here! I love Cali too…it’s amazing there!
    Have a glorious week!

  5. So many true things! DD, museums, the variety of food, culture/history…

    I’m from the East Coast, but have lived in the West, where are weirdly vocal about how much they love where they’re from. That always seemed hilarious to me; if they bothered living anywhere else (like on either coast) they’d probably change their minds pretty quickly.

    One thing I’d add about the East Coast is the sense of humor. I think people are more sarcastic (and, frankly, funnier) over/up here. I’ve gone to places in the west where people have never experienced sarcasm in real life, apparently…

  6. Hi Nancy – thanks much for stopping by and commenting! Yes – east coasters do have a great sense of humor sure – that was an awesome observation on your part. I think Cali is beautiful but I could never live there. I love the east coast and feel at home here. Plus – earthquakes – yikes! Have a great week and hope to see you again!

  7. Too fun! We visited NYC once and saw the Statue of Liberty. My brother lived in NYC for awhile for his job and used to write us hilarious letters on the differences between New Yorkers and Chicagoans where we are from, about his teeny tiny apartment, and how he would rollerblade to work hanging onto the back to taxi cabs; all this was some time ago. I loved hearing about Maryland because I don’t read or hear a lot about it.

  8. Hi Cassie! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! yes – there are loads of fun things to do and we have the most amazing ways to connect with nature. I think folks forget about that. Hope to see you again soon.

  9. Hi Sue – thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! LOL that is funny – about the rollerblading. I see that all the time….with buses too! NYC is the best – I am always thrilled to go there. When I worked there for much of my life, I never got to really enjoy it because I worked and went home most nights. Now, when we go….we have a blast! Maryland is amazing and so beautiful a state! I adore Chicago too….used to go there a lot for business…food is off the hook! Do stop back when you can!

  10. Wish I can live in the East Coast, or maybe be there even for just a visit. Food seems great, especially now I know their sandwiches are. My Panini maker will be busy heating and reheating East Coast’s yummy deli sandwiches, for sure.
