Hello everyone,

I'm sure these questions have been asked over and over but I would greatly appreciate feedback. I have come to the point where I think I am just about fed up with NYC. I would like to relocate to possibly, MD, PA, or DC area. I am a RN in my early thirties and my partner is a teacher also in his early thirties. Knowing some of theses questions would be a good starting point for us. Thx.


1.What are the more trendy places to live in MD? I would like to live in a place with nice restaurants, shops, etc.

2.Prices for renting,etc?


2.How is the job market,salaries, in MD for our particular careers?

Annapolis. Parts of Baltimore, maybe Canton, Federal Hill.

What kind of environment are you looking for? Are you fed up with the urban environment of NYC, or the city itself?

My first recommendation would be Philadelphia and its suburbs. Philadelphia has some very nice, trendy areas around center city, and many of the suburbs are upscale.

In Maryland, I'd look at Harbor East in Baltinore. It's fairly expensive there, but surely cheaper than NYC.

In DC, look at Georgetown, Dupont Circle, Kalorama, and Chevy Chase.

I am looking for a better quality of life. I like the city but I am a lil fed up with urban life in nyc. I originally grew up in the suburbs and moved to nyc in my 20s and enjoyed it. Although now that I am getting older I prefer a little slower pace. But I would still like to be able to go out to lounges, restaurants, movies mall etc. In close proximity.

I think there are lots of areas of Philadelphia you'd like.

Thanks, everyone has been very helpful.
As far as philadelphia and surrounding suburbs . It would be helpful if I knew what the name of the neighborhoods were specifically? Any info on job market there. Even in this economic climate as an experienced RN I have had limited difficulty getting employment in
NY.

In Philadelphia, anything in center city, like Washington Square West, Rittenhouse Square, Old City. You might also check out Manayunk, up the river from downtown but still in the city.

In the suburbs, many of the main line towns (along U.S. 30) are great: Villanova, Wayne, Malvern. Media is also nice, and West Chester is a great college town.

Look up butchers hill in Baltimore. It's walking distance to Hopkins hospital and is near a number of city schools.
