Went south for seven years, then came back home!!!!!!!!!!! There may be more jobs available down there, but we missed our "real" wings, snow instead of ice storms, and all the genuinely friendly folks in WNY. My advice: All the perks of WNY are worth weathering some winter and some lower-paying employment.

I moved from WNY to Georgia a year ago looking for a good job, lower taxes, and warm weather. I have a good paying job, somewhat lower taxes (not that cheap), and warm weather all year. And I feel lost. I miss NY and can't wait to come back. I have met nice people here, but this just doesn't feel like home. I doubt that I will move back to WNY, but I'm seeking a job transfer to the NYC area so I can be near WNY.

Being happy is what matters most in life. Being near my family and friends is what is most important to me.

If I could find work there as a Senior Geologist I'd go back. Love the 1,000 islands.

I live in Buffalo and I'm looking to move to Charlotte. I was sucked in to the Buffalo vortex almost 20 years ago from NYC. The people here are so nice, great schools too. I kept waiting for Buffalo to recover financially from the steel plant closings, still waiting.
Buffalo is full of talented people working crappy jobs or leaving town. The storm last October left the trees as broken as the people here. it is depressing I cannot wait to leave this city of broken trees.

I moved to Atlanta 17 years ago. Now, married with two small boys, I am ready to come back!!! We hope to make the move this summer.
Atlanta has changed so much since we moved here...we really miss Rochester!

I ate dinner tonight with several people, many of whom are Native North Carolininians (?). I found it funny that all of them had the same horror stories about Charlotte and Raleigh and said they would never ever move there themselves!

Default Cortland or lansing NY

I am thinking of moving to the Cortland or Lansing area. I heard that the Lansing area could be "snobby" Is this true??. I know the schools are good. What about Cortland is it a poor community? What community would be friendly?? Family friendly. We are middle class working family. I like to be involved with the schools my children go to. Just wondering if anyone could help me with this decision. Of course if you know of another area near to those towns mentioned you think would be friendly please let me know.
Thank you so much for any information!
