I am a native New Yorker now living in Richmond, Virginia and planning to relocate near Wilmington. (My husband got a job transfer.)
Just curious?? Are there any transplants from NYC now living in Northern Delaware?
I don't like it here in the South and find that some of the Southerners are not too fond of people from NYC.
I am hoping there will be more tolerence in Delaware.


Appreciate any feedback.

I'm a native New Yorker that moved to Calif when I was young, we are moving to Delaware soon, try coming from the state that's referred to as the land of "fruits and nuts". We were thinking of moving to Colorado, we found out they REALLY hated Calif. So I know what you mean. So I say the hell with them all! We chose Delaware because all my family is on the East Coast and from what I can tell there are a ton of people from the East Coast that end up in Delaware because NY, NJ etc are expensive, property taxes are very high, and cost of living are high. So you'll be fine. Especially in Willmington.

Actually, we have been very pleased with how "accepting" people in DE are of New Yorkers. I am originally from Ohio, but grew up in Va Beach due to dad being career Navy. Met hubby in Va Beach, but he is a native Long Islander/New Yorker. We have lived in several states over the years, and folks in the south were not kind. Did I say that nicely?

I have met several people in our 4 short months here from all over... partly due to the Air Force being here in Dover but also due to the migration mentioned above. Again, it has been refreshing to experience the open and welcoming attitude here. Definitely a far cry from what we experienced in our 15 years in central NC!

Good luck, and welcome!

Mary

Now, now....there are a lot of pretty smart folks from NY, Phila and DC that enjoy first and second homes in Delaware. And look at the lowest taxes of any state in the country, no sales tax and beautiful resorts.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm we should have a new slogan that says " the smart people come to DE to live" Maybe that is why we are the first state.

As a recent transplant from the south, I'll give from PA's comment a big "Amen"!
