the capital region is an expensive place to live.

Keep that in mind.

Roger that! For what I was paying on the fringe of arbor hill in albany I'm now in a really nice complex in Indianapolis. Gotta pool, fitness center, central air and a whole host of goodies + the heat is paid for just about the same amount as in Albany. Anything in NY your getting ripped off, be the rent, food, utilities. I've seen it with my own eyes!

I think depends on where you are in NY. Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo are more affordable. For instance, for a 2 bedroom in Liverpool, just north of Syracuse, I paid between 595-620 while I was there. This complex had a fitness room, community room and car wash bay. I don't think the electric was over 66 dollars while I was there too. So, it depends.

I agree .. my sis and brother-in-law live in DeWitt and was at one time thinking about moving to Syracuse. The rents are ... reasonable. Still .. you're in NY and it's going to get worse. I'm wish I would have made this move either south or west in my 20's I'd probably have a savings account.

I hear ya. Things tend to be cheaper "down South". I think that with more and more people moving that way, they will be hit with the same issues in terms of taxes there too and it is already happening. I know VA taxes your vehicles for instance. I think Indiana does that too.
