I see that  EU economic and financial affairs commissioner Pierre Moscovici endorses UK approach:

 

Mr Moscovici...."If Europe doesn't deliver on growth and jobs, if Europe is seen as the place for austerity, if Europe is not seen as a hope, as progress but as a constraint, as a punishment, as a pain, then the European project will be not only criticised but rejected." See http://www.bbc.co.uk...europe-31067473

 

UK unemployment:  5.9%

France unemployment:  10.5%

EU unemployment 10%

 

UK growth: 2%

France growth: 0%

EU growth:  0%

 

What are the figures for Germany?

 

Edit: Didn't see Griff's post.

Both! I visited both September last year, It really does depend what you are looking for and how long you want to stay. Boston is incredible, historic, and very relaxed. New York is the same, but bigger and a lot faster! Boston is a walkable City, New York less so.

 

Another big difference is $$$.You can blow through a lot of cash in New York quite easily.

 

The above may sound like I am putting a downer on New York, which I am not, I have visited New York three times, Boston only once. Maybe that is why I am a bit more enamoured with Boston at the moment.

 

January is a great time to visit New York, the weather will cut you to the bone, as will, no doubt, Boston (Bob8 can give you a lot more info on Boston than I ever could)

 

 

Either way, you won't be disappointed with your choice.
