Hey Folks,

I'm looking into a possible move to either New Hampshire or upstate New York, specifically the Albany NY area. I know both are close to outdoor activities, plenty of water, forests, and mountains. Any opinions on which would be better, more friendly to outsiders, more expensive, etc. Any cautions? And by the way, no need to mention snow and winter weather...I'm originally from Minnesota, so I know it well.

Thanks!

They have similar cultures, political views, religious views, and economies (good, moderate-liberal, catholic, good economy.) But New Hampshire has lower taxes and is closer to the beach.

I say NH!

Hi, up until 6 years ago i lived in new hampshire my whole life and now i live in new york. i am moving out of new york because the taxes here are rediculous and they keep going up. upstate ny is a nice place to visit or to vacation . if i had to do it again, i wouldn,t have moved here. that's why i'm moving out this summer. there are no jobs here, unless you want to work retail or in health care. new hampshire has much better paying jobs for sure. here the top paying job in my field is almost half of what i was making in new hampshire. as far as property tax offsetting the sales tax in new york, the property tax is just as high here. plus you have sales tax of 9.75% , income tax. so if you don't want to pay all this tax, i would move to new hampshire with out a dought. don't make the same mistake i made.
