I'm sure you've been here before and know it is a beautiful city. Most visitors never venture beyond the Strip and that's definately not where it is for me. I love the mountains and all the natural beauty of the city. There is a lot of vitality in LV. unlike the vitality of NY, and the vitality is that of having fun and enjoying the outdoors. And for sure, you know you will be getting much better weather; very little of the humidity and definately none of the winter snow crap and weather. Can't say how much your career will be in demand but have to believe it would be somewhat easy to seque into something similar and being single.....I would definately go for it.

I am also a born and raised nyc'er and I love living in Las Vegas (so far.) The food is a good as nyc and I like that, similar to nyc it is pretty diverse culturally speaking. Housing is obviously way more affordable and so is living in general. The biggest culture shock issue for me is the driving- you do have to drive everywhere in this urban sprawl- but, if you live in most places other than nyc, you will probably have to drive (at least the traffic here is not as bad as LA.)

Fellow NYC-er here. Been here for over a year now and love it. Granted I really dig the outdoor recreation stuff and weather so the move was easy for me. Of course there's no place like NYC and Vegas just doesn't have the same culture or vibe but it does offer decent/close compromises. Dining, entertainment, sports, nightlife, etc. Perhaps one challenge is not having everything within one block but here nothing is too far away either. To me there is no "off" in NYC. Here I can choose to either be in the energy or be away from it and get some peacefullness and quiet.

As far as becoming a home owner. This is the right place at the right time. It's worth a shot especially if you have some friends here. You can always go back to NYC if Vegas isn't for you.

Good luck.

If I were you I would definitely go. Especially if you already have friends there that can show you the ropes so to speak. My sister lived in Vegas and loved it, she now resides in TN, but that was due to hubby being relocated. Anyhow, if you decide to go I know of an opening for an Attorney position, a friend of mine recruits for that sort of thing, I will get more details from her if you are interested. Otherwise I am sure you shouldn't have any trouble with finding work as an entertainment lawyer! Good Luck!

A BA? Well---- that's the problem. Next application list your education as a GED, or perhaps an on-line degree from an unaccredited institution. This will certainly result in a bonding with HR, and give you that "edge" to get hired.

You are ABSOLUTELY the first person that has ever posted the food in LV is as good as NYC.
