There is another thread that looks just like this on both the Syracuse and Rochester forums. You can find answers there.

Considering the cost of a house in a safe area of Brooklyn is now pushing $750k, and you can realistically get a house in an Upstate suburb for 1/10 of that price, I'd say yes.

I've done a ton of research on this personally, and in most parts of the country, you can survive quite well on 1/2 of what you make in the NYC area. So, if you make $100k in the NYC metro, you'd easily have the same quality of life Upstate for $50k.

That's not across the board, because if you're making $15k and getting a ton of public assistance, making $7.5k isn't gonna be good. But you get my point.
