I Love New York - 3/5/2016

As far as the outdoors, New York is a beautiful state with a lot to offer than most people think. New York has two of the best state parks in the country. Watkins Glen and Letchworth State Parks are great places to go hiking and enjoy the outdoors. The finger lakes region is beautiful as well as up north in the Adirondack mountains. Autumn is a great time of year to spend outdoors and enjoy the foliage. New York is such a dynamic state. Between large cities such as NYC, Syracuse, Albany, Rochester, Buffalo, and the vast amounts of farmlands and villages; New York State has it all. New York City has a lifetime of places to see and things to due. It is a truly amazing and powerful city.

NY (Long Island) - 4/2/2015

Housing market is painfully high. Explains why it so many people live with their parents until they are 30.

Living in New York not the City - 3/21/2015

Imagine you have been transported to a place where all you can see is rolling hills, mountains in the distance, more sheep and cows than people.. Farms, covered bridges, old homes from the Revolutionary War days .. That is what you get when you visit or live in "Upstate" New York . The people are friendly and helpful, hard working and caring. Like most people anywhere in the world, they work, have families and just want to be happy. It is a wonderful place to visit and a very good place to call home.

Retirement expense - 12/17/2014

New York State has higher taxes than many states and that effects ones ability to retire comfortably. The long winter creates an additional cost for heating as well.

Long Island, all in all, STINKS! - 2/2/2014

Long Island is absolutely by far the worst place I've ever lived in my life & I'm going on 60 years old. The summers are unbearably hot & humid, it's nothing but a hideous conglomeration of malls, stores, & urban wasteland, the traffic is absolutely insane, & all the people are nasty, paranoid, shallow, neurotic, money-oriented jerks! It is grossly overcrowded at 5,402 people per square mile. The rich kids are spoiled rotten & disrespectful, & the poor kids are belligerent, dangerous, & disrespectful. It's ridiculously expensive & unless you're a high-level professional it's almost impossible to make ends meet. I lived there for 18 years & let me tell you, when I moved away, I shook the dust from my feet & swore I'd never go back again. I haven't, either.

Taxes, taxes, taxes - 11/23/2013

It just keeps getting worse. I make 20% more than the average for the area and still struggle. State and local taxes go up every year. No surprise people are leaving NY in droves.

Long Island weather - 9/11/2013

Living on the South Shore of Long Island we are the first -in line to get hit with the hurricanes etc that our fall weather is notorious for. On avg I would say there are about 30 nice enough days out of the year to enjoy. Winter-cold windy-n'easters-snow and tons of moisture all year round! Summer 85 avg with 80pct humidity-it may look nice outside but you'll regret stepping out the front door-unbearable! For every 2 days of decent weather-rain -humidity-always a chance of thunderstorms and should you enjoy that type weather-get ready for hi risk of west Nile Virus from the 20 mosquito bites you'll get in an hour-love all the pesticides they spray over us!! Oh-Spring-if we are lucky to have one (every few years we are!) don't even think about opening a window coz you-everything you own and every pet will be green from Pollen!! Looks real pretty in pics tho!! Ever wonder why NYers are stereotypically known as unfriendly? Every other day and every single is a battle of extremes-Good Riddance-Southern Calif bound!!

In the Mountains - 5/6/2013

New York can be very beautiful north and west of NYC. We have low crime and beautiful weather in summer. Winter can be too long for seniors, but the medical care is very good.

binghamton NY - you have to find your community - 1/31/2013

And its not easy, it took me over a year. Binghamton is kind of depressed but it is looking up. At least it's headed in the right direction. No trains. Bus to NYC is about 3 hours. Beware of student housing. Land lords take advantage of the student community. Consult a crime map before moving into a neighborhood.

Love New York - 10/25/2012

We have lived in New York all our lives, my partner is a born New Yorker who has travelled to many countries. We love New York, but can't stand the winter cold anymore and the cost of living is getting out of hand. So we are both looking to retire out of New York.

High Cost is driving me out!! - 9/27/2012

I've lived on Long Island, NY for all my life and now at 46 are looking to get out because of the high cost and unemployment levels. LI used to be a great place with friendly people but now it's more competitive in everything from homes to cars, not very friendly people anymore and many clicks. Need that friendly feeling and genuine goodness and NY is not the place for that anymore.

NY Big City of Dreams - 9/10/2012

NY is getting a makeover, apertments and homes. Unfortunatly they are too expensive for newyorkers in this current economy. The future doesn't look bright for the middle class family in NY.

NYS has beautiful scenery - all 4 seasons are enjo - 6/11/2012

I will miss the change of seasons terribly but we are looking to move out of state because it is just too costly to live here. The Buffalo area has so much to do during the summer months - so many festivals - I am hoping to find the same where ever we end up. Also, the pro sport teams does create a great deal of excitement for the area. Being so close the Canadian border is a plus - if you have a passport.
