Fairfield, CT is somewhat expensive, so I may move. I will attempt to sell my house (6 years later) and move. I have been considering New Haven and Upstate NY Cities (Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, Albany). What do you think I should do? I heard the Downtowns of NY cities has revived a lot. Another upside to Upstate NY cities is traffic and I can fly to almost every city on the EC and Chicago via Buffalo and Rochester Airport. Although I will miss the New Haven food. I am traveling up to UNY for a week or two soon. New York is y favorite state also.

What are you looking for in a community? I also don't know if the food will be different, give or take some things.

You can do/find all of these things in many Upstate NY cities/areas. Anything else?

Nothing else. Only main problems are selling the house I own and convincing my girlfriend to move.

That would be important.

I will say that Wegmans doesn't go east of Syracuse and Binghamton in NY State, except for one I think that is in the Hudson Valley.

Which city do you recommend? I was thinking of Rochester-Buffalo because of airport access.

You could go with either one, really. Both have what you are looking for. Buffalo has more people within the city, but the metro area populations are pretty much the same. Both have areas of the city that have nightlife, some shopping and that are pretty safe too. It may be a matter of what you see from each city/area.

Yes, Wegmans is headquartered in Rochester , but in the last decade or so has expanded to Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. Rochester is a very creative city. Being a computer geek you will love RIT's computer curriculum.
