What kind of work in media? Do you work for an ad agency? It might be a little more difficult finding a job in Clarksville.

NYC to Clarksville will be major culture shock. I haven't been through Clarksville in several years and I think it's grown recently but it's gonna be a lot different than NYC. There'll be less things to do, fewer choices in restaurants, etc. but also lower taxes and a completly different atmosphere.

You should visit there before you move.

I think upstate NY would count as being rather urbane compared to Clarksville...

Very true Piedmont, I agree completely. But I asked those questions to gauge how the OP looks at the difference between the city and upstate. If they see as upstate as a bunch of backwards yokels, then chances are the OP will not like the difference in culture shock they will experience in Clarksville, Tn. If the OP finds upstate charming and a desirable place to live, then Tn. will be a welcome lifestyle change, don't you think?

I moved to Clarksville from New Jersey 3 yrs ago. Compared to nyCITY it will be a huge difference. Not nearly as much to do and next to no nightlife. Most people- if they need to get out and have some fun (esp us younger ppl)- we head to Nashville. Nashville is still nothing compared to NYC in terms of shopping and activity but there is a bit more options in activities. Lots of bars, concerts, and a much better mall than here in Cville. Clarksville isnt exactly out in the country either, though. There is a good mix of people due to the military so you wont find yourself surrounded by all southerners. Though there are quite a few families- there are lots of single (mostly men) due to the military as well. It is very populated, though, with young families w/ little kids here.

Cville is a growing city and constantly growing in population and businesses. I dont know how successful your biz would be here but it could very well do well in this kind of town. There will be an adjustment period for you but if you can get used to things being a little more quiet and be ok with limited options for entertainment- you'll do just fine. Oh- but eat some good food before you come because there is NO food here in TN that is like NJ/NY food. I think the wide variety of different foods is one of the #1 things I miss.
