Well, unexpectedly my husband was transferred to New York. We arrived in September and I have to say that I've really been pleasantly surprised about how much more family-oriented it is here. The schools are great (I'm in Westchester county) the shopping is about the same as in the Bay Area and I'm enjoying the seasons. Also, I have a son who's a junior and there are so many terrific colleges nearby....

Good luck to you.

*I count my blessings every day that my husband wasn't transferred to California.


Westchester county is not Orange county, you can't even compare the two. I can't imagine moving from California to Orange county NY.

When you go on the CA boards.... there are a lot of people who moved out to places like Texas, Washington, and they all want to move back to CA because they hated it. Hope that doesn't happen to us. Any one from Los Angeles who now resides in the lower Hudson, and is glad they made the move??? Thanks to all.

Why don't you try Gilbert AZ instead, you'll be bored to death in Warwick, oh unless that's the plan.
