@ckhthankgod: I looked up the demographics of those towns in New York, and I wasn't very impressed. Thanks anyway!

I can see Saugerties. New Paltz is a college town. Cohoes is a blue collar suburb close to those 3 bigger cities, that has a growing Black population and arts scene. Perhaps nicer parts of those 3 cities would work, as the nightlife spots do not close until 4 AM. You may like something like this Albany neighborhood: Center Square Association : HomePage

Lark Street BID :: Welcome

Lark Street - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Downtown Troy may work too: Troy Business Improvement District :: The Troy Downtown Collaborative

Perhaps the Union Street area of Schenectady too:

Another area in Upstate NY that has nightlife that late is the Buffalo area. What is also cool about the Buffalo area is that it is right next to Canada. You only have to be 19 to enjoy nightlife over there and cities like Hamilton and Toronto are close enough for weekend trips. You may like a community like Kenmore or some of the nicer Buffalo neighborhood ks like North Park/North Buffalo, Elmwood Village and maybe Allentown. I had 3 siblings attend college in the area and each of them liked it a lot.

Also, with the Albany-Schenectady-Troy area, you are close to 3 sets of mountains and Boston and NYC are only 2 hours away. That is roughly the same distance from Buffalo to Toronto too. I can't forget that if you do the Canada thing, get an enhanced driver's license. It is an alternative to getting a passport, if you don't have one.

Why don't all you people who are looking for all the same characteristics all get together and go somewhere with a suitable climate and create the city you all want to live in? Instead of expecting all the working stiffs and grunts to create it for you, ready made for you to move into?

Well happy Good Friday to you too

Isn't the whole point of CD forum to let local experts share their knowledge with people who aren't familiar with an area? Last I checked, no one is forced to answer people's questions on here.
In addition to trying to help people with their questions I also find it very enjoyable to read other peoples experiences in their own areas. There is a wealth of knowledge on these boards and I for one appreciate it

@ckhthankgod: I like the idea of Buffalo! Being that close to Canada would be pretty sweet.

@BigD_JT_14221: Seriously. I'd like to know what made jtur88 so grouchy, but it's all good. I asked a question, and I got 99% great answers. Thanks, guys!

Sade - If you have any Buffalo questions, hop over the the sub-forum and ask away. I was born and raised in Buffalo and there are a bunch of great contributors that frequent the Buffalo forum - some locals, some who relocated there from elsewhere.
