Poughkeepsie because it's the closest to NYC, one of my favorite places to be.

* TROY CITY NO WAY--looks like the South Bronx in downtown Troy.
* Albany city NO WAY* bad crime (see above)

I am sure both Troy and Albany have nice parts but where I have been have looked dicey with very high crime rates.

Do you want to live in a city and do you have a job already?
c
I live in a suburb of Albany that is just a suburban place but okay. I will be moving though after May. Where to is still up in the air but maybe north of Albany. If my husband doesn't get another job by then, we are out of the capital region...

Never been to Schenectady but hear crime is VERY BAD.

Poughkeepsie (city of) was crime ridden in 1988 when I lived there...but you could live in Hyde Park or Fishkill (nearby towns).

Don't know about Utica or Syracuse or Buffalo.

What are you looking for in a place to live? Once that is established, then the people trying to help you will give specific information.

See, I'm not too worried about looks, as to I am quite fancy upon the romanesque buildings that Troy has, although I thought their crime rate was substancially lower than opposing cities like Albany, Schnectady, Poughkeepsie and Buffalo. I love NYC and don't mind the rough look as long as it isn't rough.

I believe that Troy's crime rate is lower than most, if not all of those cities. Of course, there are good and bad in that regard in Troy though. You may like this neighborhood guide: Troy NY Neighborhoods (http://troyny.gov/neighborhoods.html - broken link)

It is lower than most on the list but still pretty high.Troy has a violent crime rate of 902. The 20th highest for cities with a pop between 40,000-60,000. Also just a disclaimer I've never been to Troy just reporting stats, so I'm only looking at it through numbers.

Also keep in mind that Troy is a city center that is among many suburbs of bigger city centers and the population is short by almost 4000 people according to the information I compared between the list on Wikipedia and this website: US2010

Also, Binghamton and the surrounding area may work as well.
