I have some investment properties in PA. Moving there may be an option. It's far ideal, but it's better than NY.
You need to spend some time in PA before making that move. If I could list the US states in order of where I'd live, PA is down near the bottom, like bottom five.

Ding da-ding da-ding da ding! Congratulations city living!

You are the winner of a brand new black Mustang. Plus you have a choice between

Door #1 a two week long vacation in Bangkok Thailand at a 5 star resort and casino plus free massages every day and a cash package of $500 spending cash.

Or you can pick mystery Door #2. What will it be?

I’m considering moving to Boston as it has better baseball, better chowder, and it offers everything that NYC does as NYC has always tried to but never succeeded in becoming a better Boston. What is my prize?

You get a bunch of Red Sox clothes and hats and stuff because that's the only thing people in Boston have to identify with. Have fun. Also you win a box of Kleenex for wiping your tears when the Yankees or Mets win against the red sox!

Sounds about right, the Red Sox and the Yankees can go choke on a fat one

Where on earth did you get that, or take this thread to imply such a thing? People wish to leave New York City for other reasons: the housing is horribly overpriced: renting a shabby 1-bedroom walkup apartment with stained fixtures -- in run-down parts of Queens and the Bronx -- is approaching $2,000 a month (you'll pay even more in the better areas, and much more in Manhattan. The cost of services ain't cheap, either, from shoe repair to internet access. Public transportation is overcrowded every hour of the day (the empty subway cars at 2 p.m. in the 1990s are a quaint memory). Few ever questioned whether NYC "had anything to offer" -- it obviously does or 8.6 million people wouldn't live here now (one million more people than 25 years ago). But life is tough, very tough here, and just gets tougher.

A bat to the head.
