Hi Rachlyn I feel like we are pals already! I truly wish you the best of luck in your hunt. I know it's a long hard road. The good news is the payoff is immeasurable!

Wow, ladies! Its been fun catchin' up on my reading here on C-D! Hubby still works in NY, while the kids and I are settling in and lovin' it here in DE. And you're both right, he's doing it for the money right now. Hopefully, if his work goes good for the next 5 years, he'll be able to hang up that hat and make the big jump to DE with us. We'll see!

As far as companies moving out of Manhattan... I have seen some trend in that direction in the last 10 years or so. With the internet and other "modern technologies" developing, and with the advent of 9/11, I think a LOT of the giant corporations are re-thinking the necessity to be in the BIG CITY. NY will always attract certain industries, as we all know it is hard to change some mindsets. And the idea of increasing tolls (by the mayor) is ludicrous, in my opinion. There are plenty of people who have no choice by to commute or even drive into the city everyday; lets just hurt the little guy a little more, Mr. Mayor! GRRRRR!

Hi MaryCh,

I totally agree with you! it does come down to the Mayor "hurting the little guy"... and running the "little guy" out of town... I believe that is why so many people are leaving... to find a better quality of life elsewhere... The Mayor just does not either get it or care! As much as I love NY and all of its diversity, I know that it is not the be all and end all... and there is better out there. I have to tell you, when we get to the "Yellow Bridge" and we're crossing over the canal, I get such a feeling of excitement and home, all at once! Can you tell I'm looking forward to the move?!!

Hey Rachlyn,

No doubt you ARE looking forward to moving! And our son with autism calls the "Yellow Bridge" the "Golden Bridge"! We too notice a difference once we are south of the canal.. even noticed that when searching for a place to settle here in DE. Eerie, huh?

Mary....don't know if I mentioned this, probably did, in all of my ramblings.....
In Delaware, you're either "above the ditch" or "below the ditch" when speaking of the Chesapeake-Delaware Canal (yellow/golden bridge). Some say below the ditch is "lower-slower" but that's incorrect, and heaven knows, you don't want to be incorrect and look uninformed "lower-slower" is absolutely reserved for those people in Sussex County. But, I digress..... zzzzzzzzzz http://www.westlord.com/smiles/sleep/001.gif (broken link)

I'm not sure why this old thread was bumped up, but I'd like to suggest that you start a new thread saatayero1 if you would like some info.

No. As far as I know, there is no rail service south of Newark.
