The Litchfield Hills in Connecticut -- very artsy and quaint with a strong New York influence.

Just finished reading this thread. Incredible info here, thanks to everybody who has contributed! I'd say I'm in the same boat as most of you in terms of what I'm looking for in a place to live. Best of luck to all of you in your search.

Glad that some of the info is helpful or might lead to some satisfactory relocations.

Any experiences of your own you'd like to share--we haven't had as many Southern cities mentioned to offset all those in the NE and several posters sure wouldn't mind a warm weather climate.

Best to you too!

Welcome back, stormweary!

Glad to hear your computer is back online.

One or two recent posts in particular might really be of interest to you.

Thanks for adding and sharing this, Dancingearth--I suspected at least a few of the first time posters found the thread in a search--and you confirmed it.

Default new orleans as art town

griffininsight: you posted about new orleans and I have to disagree somewhat with what you said. Right now, nola is NOT that affordable at least compared to pre k. rents are VERY high in the city right now, might be less in the surrounding suburbs but I wouldn't, as an artist, want to live in any of them.... uptown and the quarter are intact and running but anywhere else it is still pretty much a mess. I was there in March and there are signs of rebuilding but very slow imo. i still have family and friends there and they ALL say the same thing, living is hard in nola right now, politics the same b.s., infrastructure fragile, it IS changing but slow .
You are right in that the Julia and Magazine street galleries are up and running and from what I hear are doing well. you are going to find "tourist" type art there but its mostly in the quarter and well, at least its high quailty
FYI I was born, raised and went to graduate school there. It is my home and I'd like nothing better than to go back, but right now, I just don't see it happening for me.

Default Hartford visit

I just got back from Hartford, Ct. area and my quick impression is that it has some potential. Got to the Wadsworth for the Ct. contemporary exhibit and was well worth it. there seems to be a lot of support for the arts in general but from what I understand the downtown area is a bit "depressed" as businesses are moving out. Maybe someone with more info can comment better on this. ( I should post to the Ct. forum....) there seems to be some renovation of old buildings. ct as a state seems to have good support for the arts. I guess being so close to NYC is a big factor. As best as I can tell too, COL is about the same as other places away from the big apple. My daughter lives in Vernon and I was comparing her bills to mine here in Fl. and they weren't so out of line.
Just my two cents...
