As for Syracuse, Money Magazine Best Places: Best places to live 2008 - City details: Syracuse, NY - from MONEY Magazine seems to have been a contender. Reported high state taxes but no property tax, air quality 91% (excellent), avg home price 72k, college town (so assuming this lends itself to be more progressive).

--> what Ive found so far

Well, I'm originally from the area. So, I know it like the back of my hand. You can find a good house in most places around here.

You have to like snow if you move to the Syracuse area... considering it is the snowiest large metropolitan area in the US. (over a half million people that is)

Don't forget the Buffalo area. Lots of good deals on housing and there are neighborhhods like the Elmwood village and North Buffalo that are quite progressive.

The upstate NY metros are good places to look.

I don't know how liberal Fort Worth, TX is, but I was amazed how cheap the housing is there. I was watching "Property Virgins" on HGTV, and a young lady was looking for houses in the $70-100k range. It appears $100k gets you quite a bit of house out there.

Louisville has one of the coolest neighborhoods for young progressives that I've seen anywhere

Northeastern Pennsylvania would be a good bet as well. Scranton seems to be getting "hyped" left and right these days, and with the continued westward expansion of NYC and the continued northwestward expansion of Philadelphia, NEPA is bound to take off in the coming years.
