If you didn't mind a small, but very walkable community, this hospital not too far from Ithaca(about 50 minutes to an hour) and in a good health system could work: https://www.guthrie.org/location/gut...rning-hospital

Also, to be a homer for a little bit, you may want to consider this area of Syracuse, since it is only 55 minutes to an hour away from Ithaca: https://www.planning.org/greatplaces...ersityhill.htm

If you don't mind Rochester, which is less than 2 hours away from Ithaca, you may want to look into this facility: https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/strong-memorial.aspx

For additional info, I have a degree from Cornell and work in medicine. I'm lucky that it's easy for me to relocate to urban areas and find work very quickly. The trade off is walking on foot in downtown areas, as a girl, can be a recipe for trouble (looking at you, Denver...). So thank you to all the posters that offered information on the walkability of your recommendations.

Unfortunately the job market in Ithaca is very poor, otherwise I would not need to post here! I have looked at living in Ithaca for the past 3 years but geez, the job market is just awful.
Are you looking at working at a hospital then? Here in Pittsburgh there are no hospitals in Downtown per se, but basically all of the ones in the city are in walkable neighborhoods. I'd say UMPC Mercy is probably the one in the least walkable location, but it's only around 15 minutes from Downtown by foot, so even that isn't terrible.

Housing costs are 1/5 of what they are on the coasts.
I really don't want to get into a pissing match here, but Cleveland just isn't anywhere near as walkable as Pittsburgh. It has a better rail transit system by far, but when it comes to walkability it just isn't the same.

Cleveland has one neighborhood with a 90+ Walkscore (downtown). The next highest walkscore after that is Ohio City, at 79. Pittsburgh has 15 neighborhoods with a higher walkscore than Ohio City.

This is one area of Buffalo that would fit and it has hospitals nearby: Elmwood Village Association – Promoting Our Community since 1994

Check out the neighborhoods of Old Westport, Downtown Loop and Crossroads which all have WalkScores in the high 80s/low 90s.
I love Kansas City, but it's definitely not a car-free place. You might be okay if you can walk to work, but going shopping will be a major problem.

St Louis is more walkable, but Minneapolis is an even better option.

I gotta choose a few of these recommended cities to visit! They all sound fantastic.

This may help as well: https://profiles.health.ny.gov/hospital/

Another NY neighborhood that would fit and is near a couple of hospitals: Lark Street in Albany
https://larkstreetbid.org/

It is in this neighborhood: Historic Center Square Neighborhood - Albany, NY
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Center...toric_District

Street view: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.6538...i6656?hl=en-US

Again, there are other neighborhoods that would/could fit nearby as well.

Hi all,

I have big news regarding my future move. I have a new job- I now have a mobile office, which provides wonderful flexibility! I can work from anywhere as long as I have a phone connection. I am allowed to relocate anywhere east of the Mississippi.

Now I don't need to be near a hospital, or worry about job markets! I can focus on cost of living and quality of life.

Perhaps check out Ithaca again, if you still like it.


Those other areas mentioned before would likely work as well.
