Well....thanks for ruining it for me, so that's over for me. And second, um....Pennsylvania is not NY - PA is like.....Kentucky!

FWIW, I did not say "don't come here". Obviously, I came here from somewhere else, and I've been here almost 30 years. People do, every day.

I don't know what you mean about Pennsylvania being like Kentucky. In what way? And why is that a bad thing, anyway?

OK maybe not 1/3 as expensive, but still way cheaper.

Some folks in Jersey refer to parts of PA (exc. metro Philly) as Pennsyltucky. Even heard Boulderites refer to Longmont as Longtucky. No offense or strike to anyone.

I've heard "Pennsyltucky" many times before. It's meant to be a put-down of both states, I think. FWIW

I live in the Bay Area and also have observed the weight gain issue with "marathon" commuters. 1 Hour+ one-way commutes are just not good for your mental or physical health.

Hey, I commuted in NY and still worked out 2 times a day.

In Denver, this has been made SO much easier, I'm actually getting lazy.

Not in Pittsburgh!

Out here, Pennsylvania is considered a very urban state, I have found.

Per recent Forbes "best cities" list (March 2009), Denver is the most popular place in the US, and in the top 10 cities that people are currently relocating to. So you've picked a good spot but seems so have lots of other people! Definitely get out of NYC...I lived there a very long time ago and never went back, not even for a visit. Your life will improve greatly.
