Haven't posted in a while but still looking or longing for a move.
Livin in NY family not typical NY'ers. Like culture, free stuff, quite, afford-ability
and lower Cost of living. Prefer nice people, non polluters ( ie; throwing trash from car window types) we are ( I am ) mostly a home bodies but love day trips.
Need good high school following into good college or vocational for kid, and employment/career opportunities for Wife ( non profit? working with adults with developmental disabilities). Love suburbs that are close to or by conveniences
........where is the US is this? and is it on or near the east coast ( we love scenery as well but won;t bet the future on it)......

Well, I don't suggest this much but it sounds like you might be happy in Phoenix, AZ. It's cheap and clean but the education system isn't great, we have plenty of good charter schools though and some of the outlying suburb areas have some decent schools.
You can travel around the state and experience different climates, people are always boasting about that and their won't be and snow to shovel, thats for sure. Close to CA, if you need some beach. Check into the desert states, AZ, NM, etc.
Personally, I'm leaving the state, but it sounds like it has a lot of the qualities you are looking for. I've lived there for 30 years and in need of a change myself. I'm wanting seasons, and history.

Major college towns typically offer much what you are looking for:

Affordability, culture, plenty to do, green/environmentally conscious, good schools, stable economy and job options with university related hospitals/clinics for your wife.

Have you ever looked in to Oregon? Cities in the south are less gloomy, like Medford and Ashland.

I live in Phoenix and watch people throw trash out their windows daily.
