Hello everyone,

I am from NYC and I have lived several places. I am looking to move upstate but close to nyc. I have a 2 year old so a good school district is important as well as a good job economy. I'm looking to move within the next two years. Can anyone give me some advise?

What kind of work would you be looking for? What else are you looking for in a community? What about cost of living? Anything else?

I usually do customer service or call center work. I don't want to be in a big town but not too small. Multicultural community is what I really want.

Try Albany. Trains and buses run from Albany to NYC. I think the buses are really cheap. Something like $30 for a round trip ticket.

You can try somewhere in Orange County like Goshen, Monroe or Cornwall. Perhaps Spackenkill, Hyde Park, the Arlington area or Wappingers Falls in Dutchess County too.

Poconos are the absolute best deal within 2 hours of NYC. You commute into NJ for the job / decent salary. I wouldn't recommend anywhere in Orange County for jobs.

I agree. OC does not have a good job economy unless you're in healthcare, perhaps.

I guess scratch the Orange County suggestions and look into Dutchess County. Keep in mind that you may be able to take the train into the City for work. So, it may not be completely out of the question.
