Funny because I am debating the same thing right now. Stay in NYC or move to Cape Coral where family is or try something new like Poinciana Florida. I hear it is nicer there. Any opinions ? I will tell you 1 thing that N.Y. is getting to expensive & the air quality is getting worse probably because the traffic is a nightmare. If you like triple locking everything you own & always watching your back dealing with rude people then hey go for N.Y. its definately a challenge to live here.

My parents live in Naples, like 30 miles south of Cape coral. They're only here because of my dad's job, and they don't like it at all. I've heard from other people and they know people here in SWFL who want to move back to NY. It's different when you vacation there. It's a completely different world when you actually live there.

here's an example why: I'm in Naples visiting my parents right now. It's like a ghost town around here since most of the people who live here are snowbirds. I wanted to get sushi for lunch. THREE sushi restaurants were closed for lunch until November (when the snowbirds come). One was closed down completely until November for that reason. In NY, not only can I get good priced sushi, I can get it any day of the week, year round.

NYC! I can't imagine living anywhere that does not have seasons. Not seeing the leaves turn in the fall would depress me I think. My parents spend a lot of time in Stuart Florida, not to far from Cape Coral, it's hot all year and boring and everyone is old.

I like the Coconut Grove section of Miami, where my brother used to live. People call it Miami's version of Greenwich Village. If I had the means to afford a second home, it would be there! But to leave Brooklyn and move to Florida year-round? I can't envision that.

coconut grove is fun, the university of miami is basically right next to it, and therefore there's always young people around.

especially thursday nights are great, "college night" at the grove go to fat tuesdays, beer for $1/$2 (depending on what brand you prefer), then head over to mr.moes or sandbar. good times

I'll tell you why people have to ask, because I'm going through the same thing. Sometimes, people just have to talk to others, to flesh things out and get it out of their system, and, in the process, they get new perspectives and either confirm or deny their prejudices.
