CityMelt.comDo you constantly wish you lived on the right side of the tracks, river or time zone? You’re not alone.

Heck, 46 percent of the public would rather live in a different type of community from the one they’re living in now, according to a recent poll by Pew Research Center‘s Social & Demographic Trends.

But moving is expensive and new jobs are hard to come by, so wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to get a holistic picture of life in a new town, village or city before filling the U-Haul and finding a decent barber? Citymelt takes the guesswork out of finding the perfect nest, whether you’re a family of five or a swinging bachelor looking to reside within walking distance of a gentlemen’s club.

Citymelt offers a long list of weighted options to determine your perfect home base from a database of more than 50,000 locales. Pick your ideal population size and shape. Weigh in on the weather. Choose the color of your collar: Blue or white. Heck, even choose your preferred elevation – whether it’s the Mile High city of Denver or the Lost City of Atlantis.

Apparently, I would like the town of Meyers Chuck, Alaska. Allegedly, I’d get along with all 21 other residents - although with 11 men and 10 women, it’s a veritable sausage party. But with a median income of $65K, one third having earned bachelor degrees, and a median igloo value of $120k-plus, my 21 friends and I could have scholarly discussions about big, important things while burning hundred dollar bills to keep warm inside houses resembling Superman’s Fortress of Solitude.

Now that’s the life.
