I have recently been made a job offer to move to Troy NY. I am interested in living in a relatively "upscale" area in the Capital region. At the same time, since I am hoping to be as close to NYC as possible, meaning that I wouldn't mind a 45 min commute to Troy, I am looking for an area that's south of Albany. Any hints you can offer would be highly appreciated. I don't have kids so I am not bounded to school districts.

As far as upscale, I would think Latham/Loudonville/North
Colonie, Bethlehem, Niskayuna, Clifton Park and maybe East Greenbush in terms of suburbs. Not sure about south of Albany that is that far out. Bethlehem is just south of Albany, but I'm thinking that you want something that is a bit more south of the area. Maybe Saugerties, a nice part of Hudson or Catskill, the Valatie/Kinderhook area and the Ravena area.

Bethlehem has many upscale areas, Ravena/Selkirk is up and coming with many new housing developements. Hudson is a quaint town and people who live there love it.
Check back tomorrow, I will do a quick search and post some web sites where you can view some options.
