Look along the Hiawatha line in Southeast MPLS or along the green line between StP and MPLS.
Thank you. I need to do more research on Minneapolis. I just see that it's been mentioned a lot as a good place to live, and don't know much about it other than the harsh winters How is it compared it other cities on my list?

Another area like the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton area of PA could also potentially work for the same reasons. All of them allow you to check them out due to generally closer proximity to Brooklyn.
Thanks a lot! I need to do some research on these.

I would also suggest a look at Atlanta which offers as many transit options as other cities you're considering plus a thriving job market and a very favorable cost of living, minus ridiculous winters.

Chicago or St Louis...for me I am tired of the winters that's why I didn't look at Chicago. Heading to the south just trying to figure out which city.

You should visit any prospective cities.

What are your specific interests? Cleveland offers superior pro sports and cultural institutions with a relatively low cost of living. It has great parks, including Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and the recreational assets afforded by Lake Erie. See post 4 here:

Cleveland Cs Columbus VS Indianapolis VS Detroit

Chicago and Illinois face massive budget problems which likely will lead to higher taxes and/or service cuts in coming years. Research this.
