Single and childless earning 40k Baltimore (a way underrated city that's still relatively cheap)

Single and childless earning 60k Chicago (great city. no more explanation needed.)

Single and childless earning 100k New York (doesn't have to be Manhattan)

Married and childless, combined 120k New York (could be Manhattan)

--With kids you're presumably also looking for decent public schools, which complicates things

Married with kid(s) combined 120k Ithaca NY, Williamstown MA, or some small NE college twon

Married with kid(s) combined 200k DC (but definitely in the 'burbs because DC city schools suck)

Married with kid(s) combined 500k New York, (New York, and Manhattan for sure. The downtown public schools are generally strong, and with that income you could also choose to go private.)


Obviously I have a (big city) Northeast bias.

We would live where we live now, the places you have listed do not appeal to us or we would already live there no matter
what the details of our situation.
