I知 an African American single gay professional moving to Manchester, New Hampshire for a work opportunity. I知 looking for areas in NH or MA that are ideal for a professional in his mid 30s. Not really into the bar scene, but would like a cool place to go to every now and again to maybe have a good meal and a drink. I致e lived in a lot of places and have a very diverse circle of friends and I知 acutely aware of the lack of diversity in New Hampshire, however I would like an element of diversity in some respect. I壇 prefer my commute to be no more than an hour even during the winter. I知 less concerned about the snow as I致e lived in the north before but over time, I would tire from a long commute. I知 looking to pay no more than $2500.00 a month for a rental as I plan to keep my current home. I appreciate all ideas and perspectives.

It does not make sense to live in ma if you are working in nh. NH has no income tax, ma steals 6%.

You do not tell us whether you prefer an urban or rural environment but manchester and nashua are the closest things to a city in nh. They will have the largest volume of rental housing, the most diversity and some of the better restaurants.

For your requirements, manchester is likely the best option unless you are bringing a dog or greatly prefer a rural atmosphere. Concord and Nashua deserve mention. Fly into mht for a long weekend and check the place out, you will get a much better idea of what works for you than an anonymous internet forum.

If I were you, I would look at these properties in downtown Manchester:
875 Elm Street
Wall Street Tower
Manchester Place

See link.


Being black in NH?


Also, for $2500/ month you can rent a luxurious house in Bedford.

Diversity isn't the first thing I'd associate with NH, but Manchester itself is probably your best bet. I think you can get a nice place for a good deal less than $2500/mo. You may want to consult this crime map because some neighborhoods in Manchester are dodgy. I suggest changing the settings so that you're visualizing only violent crimes, and over a period of a few months to get a good idea of where to avoid.

If you don't mind paying the MA taxes, consider Lowell or Haverhill MA. More urban and hipster in comparison to Manchester itself.

I agree with this. If you're working in NH, might as well live there to take advantage of the taxes.

Nashua, although not exactly urban, would allow easy drive into Boston on weekends.
