Yeah. You might as well stay in New England. That's where most of the funding goes for education, salary, etc. So there's a lot more "cleanliness" to it.
Either way, it's not the streets here that make it feel First World, it's the house and the interior of that house. You can have a shitty looking house yet decorate it enough to look like a damn nice flat.
But yeah, shit is old here. Haha
