I already planted the seed in my husbands head, if I have to work it's not so I can live somewhere I don't want to be. Glad you made it back north!
Waxhaw was far out there..that's for sure! I hear you with the italian thing..they all hear Italian and get scared like Tony is going to be packing at Applebees, my neighbors from Ohio never heard of Chicken cutlet, fried Ravioli, Donna Summer..the list goes on and on, not that any of that makes you Italian just so funny how different people are. One time they went to visit NYC and came back and said, "wow, everyone talks like you up there!!!" What a culture shock!!! There were a lot of NY, NJ people where we were but most were miserable that they made the move..Oh, I hope you get back. We were there three years & I used to beg to go back north. It took a job loss on my husbands part and me putting my foot down...he wanted to stay..I said let's get of here. Good luck!

compared to new york, jersey is a boring place to be. nice to live at if you plan on working, staying at home, and doing things here and there but this is no place to be if you're a teen or in your 20s. i'm trying to take it back to new york, maybe even brooklyn even though i want to move to upstate. jersey sucks.

and to the woman that said she hates pa, even though i never lived there and only visited there like only a handful of times, i can see why you said that. i don't know what it is about that place but something about it just turns me off. from the poconos to philly, something isn't right about that spot. i would rather stay in jersey.

I am in a verge of moving to NJ from MN because my wife wants to move back (she was born and raised in east hanover). I am offered a job at EWR airport that pays $110k a year. Is this enough for one family household? I can't imagine how much more expensive NJ is than MN. Any advise is much appreciated.

If you will be making $110K a year I don't see too much of an issue. East Hanover might be a little tight, but you can live comfortably in decent areas of NJ on that income. I left because I was making only a little more than 1/4 of that!

the median household income in NJ is $71,637. So you will be fine. You wont be rich by any means. But you will be fine on that amount.

I was always wondering if I should move to New Jersey or not because quite frankly raising children in NYC is no easy task and I have heard that depending on what part of NJ you are, you can easily commute to NYC, after all its where I work and I have no clue about how jobs are down there. Then again am not even sure if I can afford a place in NJ with a once a month that salary. Geeze what a headache.

The parts of NJ that offer an easy commute to NYC are too expensive. Stay where you are.

If you want to live close to EWR in a good town with a good school district, 110K here will probably feel like 45K in a comparable place in MN. It's up to you if you want to do it. My advice: stay put.
