Default If not LA, what city could the move have been to for Season 6?

It is widely known that LA wasn't exactly the greatest of cities to move to for Season 6, but if they had to move, what city would have worked better?

I would cast my vote for Chicago since it's closer to Milwaukee. It would have opened up the story lines a bit more and given Frank a more diverse restaurant community to open an eatery.

Hang on for a stupid question: does anyone know why it was decided to move the setting at all? The series was riding high, as far as I know (number 1 in seasons 3 and 4).

I went with New York since they went there to visit Frank's mother in the Festival episode.

I read somewhere that the move was in an effort to keep the material fresh. The writers felt the Milwaukee setting was getting stale and moved it to California in hopes of providing plenty of new material. But the move was a mistake because it dramatically changed the Laverne & Shirley characters.
