Houston is over 600 square miles. You can walk across Manhattan in 35 minutes, river to river. I know there was also BBQ (Brooklyn, Bronx, and Queens)but you had to cross water to get there. Two very different places, both have their pluses. Except, fewer know about Houston. Pro sports, world class Museums, Opera, Symphony, Ballet, Theater district, and you said it, NO STATE TAXES. Friendly people and Forbes just named it the #1 place to buy a home in U.S. (just out- I paid $1700 a square foot in NYC) ! RIce Univ. ranks in the top Universities in America and there are several more very good Colleges. If you can handle the heat, it's a great place. BTW, if you look up the weather, NYC and Houston have both had the same Hi temps all summer.

Houston is getting rave reviews all around. I like to visit but am glad I don't live in that much humidity year round. We spent a week there one afternoon-stuck on the freeway. I like a little bit more breathing room. However, if my daughter moves back to Texas, even Houston, I will give it a big yee-haw!
