We want to relocate from Georgia to Ct or NY. Our son has autism and we are looking for a place that has a good program in one of the states mentioned above. If anyone one has any suggestions please help us.

just don't go near johnstown. if you say the wrong thing, you'll be killed and the cops won't investigate. lots of satanism and ghost tours and mental illness and disease.
If a town can have cancer, this is johnstown.
political muder on a regular basis. of course it's always ruled suicide.

Default Reading

Don't overlook the Reading area per se. The surrounding areas have differing tax rates. There's a lot of beautiful rural area around that is surely worth a look.

Your really barking up the wrong tree on this one. There is little or no locations in eastern Pa that will provide you with the attributes you are looking for. Even the small towns in upper Northhampton County that "ScrantonWilkesbarre" alluded to, have fallen under the sprawl machine and are being dismantled to be replaced with all the suburban problems now experienced by other eastern Pa areas. If your really concerned about your childrens well being, and education so much, its a big country, and that New York job is replaceable. is this move for you or your children? think about it!

Thumbs up Considering relocating to PA

PA is a great state for relocation. Has anyone considered (or even heard of) Butler County? It's in the western part of the state, an hour or less north of Pittsburgh, close to the OH state-line, about 200,000 population, all the amenities you could want (or really need), affordable housing, growth, clean, no traffic, none of the big-city problems, which anyone from NY, especially Long Island, will appreciate. You can purchase a home here for what your down-payment would be for a Long Island, NY home. I'm not talking about a junk home either. These are nice 3-4 bedroom homes with property! The outskirts are really country-like, farms etc. A $250,000 home here would be $1.5 million in NY and you will have acreage, not a postage-stamp sized backyard. Many homes less than $100k, clean living with employment, close to major cities (if you need to get your 'city-fix'), casino action nearby, 60 miles to the Meadows, 100 miles to Erie, PA, close to Grove City outlets (mega-shopping), local malls, restaurants, all the big-names too, antiquing is big here, plenty of schools, medical, life's essentials etc. I left Long Island 8 years ago, don't miss it at all (yes the pizza but who lives someplace for pizza????). More info available if u want.
