Its thee only immigration I am really concerned about is allowing more snotty NY's here spoiling our paradise! (Please note I am talking about those specific whiny, complainy, nothing is good enough for me NYC'ers, not all people from New York)
not sure why you referred this back to me, the newbie. Did you assume that all people from ny feel thisway? quite a few million of us here, i hardly think we all think that way.

?

I would not be posting my questions here then. would i?

My response is more in regards to what UrbanSFL had mentioned in their post. I am just mentioning if you feel the way they do, then please do not make thee huge trek down here. As in my note, I am not by any means grouping all New Yorkers together. But there are a handful down here, one that seems to be presenting themselves on here UrbanSFL, where nothing seems good enough or everything is awful. Or they are in a hurry to push you out of the way to get somewhere first, no matter if you are carting a child and your hands are full of bags. Again this has just been my experience living in SoFlo, maybe I need to meet more NY'rs....maybe I have just met a bad crop....

The economy in South Florida is just different from the economy in the NY area, you can't compare them. Most people are retired or older and there are very few major local businesses in PBC, so there is not a constant flow of wealth like you see in a major urban area. There are few entry-level jobs or good paying jobs for people in their 20's and 30's in South Florida, so a lot of young people move to more urban areas for jobs (like I did) but you can say that about most parts of the US that are not busy urban areas.

If you can get a good paying job in PBC and you enjoy living there, it is a pretty good place to raise kids and to enjoy more relaxed weather than more Northern areas. I wouldn't want to live there at this point in my life, I find it too sprawly and boring, but I always enjoy going back there because it's relaxing and quiet and it sure beats the winter weather here in Northern California.

- downtown Lake Worth
- downtown Delray Beach
- Worth Avenue on Palm Beach (it's a ridiculously deluxe area, like all of Palm Beach but it's fun to wander around there on foot)

Abacoa in Jupiter, CityPlace in WPB and the Mizner Square area in Boca are newer areas that were purposely built to be walkable, since they're new they don't have that old town feel but they are definitely an improvement on the endless suburban sprawl. Clematis is kind of similar because it's a lot of new businesses that only opened in the last 10-15 years, but I've heard it has hit hard times again. Downtown Lake Worth about 15 years ago was pretty dumpy and abandoned but since then a lot of new places have opened up and it's thriving again.

You omitted almost the entire south end of West Palm Beach .... good neighborhoods walkable to the corner store, intracoastal, restaurants, diners, etc.

Between Okeechobee Blvd. and Belvedere Road, East of Parker, and Between Belvedere Road and the Lake Worth borderline, East of Dixie.

I've heard Lake Worth has major problems with violence (and the statistics seem to support that claim). Is it all sketchy and somewhere I wouldn't be safe to walk around at night?
