Hello,

I have created a group for all former New Yorkers to get together for fun, friendship, laughter and forging new friendships. It is a group that is focused on couples and families. But singles are allowed to join.

If you are interested, please pm me and I will send you the link. I already have 43 members and our first get together was last night. I have a couple of questions:

What part of NY are you from?
How long have you been down here?
Where do you live?
What types of activities do you like to do?

I have been down here since 1997 with hubby Mark. We have two kids. A 12 year old son, and 6 year old daughter. Hubby and I are both from Rockland County. We live near the Sawgrass Mills Mall. We enjoy getting together for dinner, bbq's, bowling, family activities, beach, swimming, movies, etc.

We are originally from Long Island but after we married we lived in Stamford, CT and Westchester county. We have lived in Broward county since late 2000 and we currently live in Plantation (also close to Sawgrass Mills). We lived in Weston for 10 years.

We have 3 kids ages 17, 14, 12 and they attend American Heritage. My oldest and youngest are athletes. They play football and lacrosse and they also wrestle. My middle is a musician and he is in marching band and jazz band. He plays piano, and all percussion instruments.

We go to lots of sporting events (Marlins games and Panthers games). I sing in Master Chorale of South Florida. My husband is a lawyer and he plays recreational hockey Coral Springs.

We live in the Hamlets of Nanuet...not a bad area...but Rockland is getting a little to crowded...and the taxes keep going up......I would love to join your group if for no other reason than to get direct imput from fellow NY'ers that have made the move......we are looking into the Fort Lauderdale area and a little further south...I myself would move today...my wife on the other hand wants to give her son time to graduate college...

I would also love to join your group. We have not made the move yet...but are in the process. We are from Long Island (nassau county/south shore). We have 2 young children and are looking to move to Jupiter. My husband is looking into getting into the police academy while I am looking for a teaching job. I will be looking to see some positive comments. Most of the posts on this forum about Florida is negative so I will be looking for people who are glad they made the move.
