this is my last post in this thread. i could say so much more, but reversing the news journals' brainwashing of you guys would take years it appears.

all i can suggest is for you all to start checking real estate for sale in wilmington everyday and you will see what exactly is happening.

good luck to all!

NYC may be safer or cleaned up in some eyes. But as a NY'er I will tell you this....what's happening is Corporations and Foreigners (Manhattan).....Yuppies (Brooklyn and Queens)....and the Bronx, well not much good to say about it really although the South Bronx is busy where it used to be bombed out. I lived in the City for 39 years before moving to LI....while the 70's were scary, by the 90's it was pretty good......but now foreigners are the only ones that can afford Manhattan, that is why Manhattan Real Estate is still doing good....and exchange rates and a weak dollar is the reason behind it. Nothing wrong with that necessarily, but there used to be some character, now it's either Disney, or Hard Rock, or whatever. I went down to Occupy Wallstreet a couple of years ago, it was funny as hell actually (I knew some on both sides)....all these people running around denouncing corporate greed, and holding up their iphones to video (Apple had just become the largest Corporation in the US, I think they went back to #2 after), and drinking Starbucks. It was priceless. OK I know I'm ranting off topic, and I apologize....but hearing how good NY was just got me started. And the crime rate is going up steadily now anyway.
Peace, I still hope to move to DE soon, I know an improvement when I see it. Then again, Wilmington itself is a city and it does have problems that need some fixing.

Feel free to wander as a former Wall Streeter myself, you gave me a great chuckle. Also reminded me of the crash in '87, when all the smarter-than-you 20 somethings , who had their Beamers, or Mercedes, along with the house in the Hamptons and the obligatory Pied-a-terre in NYC. I watched with the eyes of a mid 30 year old, as they wrung hands, held faces in hands, cried (yes and more than you would think) and came to the grim conclusion that the cushion they had been living on was not going to inflate and they had been taught an awful lesson.

To be sure, I don't think the future for Delaware is bad at all. I just don't think that the future for the City of Wilmington (by which I mean the incorporated municipality strictly within the city limits) looks all that brilliant. The City will muddle along, with some successes and its continuing structural, societal failures. The two things to worry about long term in the state are issues primarily farther south: rising sea levels, and the continuing residential development of its agricultural land.
