If it makes you feel any better, I live in NY and FI has been applying for jobs anywhere but here. We may ok money but can’t afford to buy a house since the taxes are about the same as a mortgage payment. Plus the schools aren’t that great.

I love NY. I’m assuming you want to live in the city right? We currently live in Manhattan but are looking at houses 1 hour outside the city. I love the city life but refuse to continue paying 3k in rent. It’s ridiculous.

I’ve always had the irrational, extremely strong urge to move to New York. I decided against it several years ago because it makes absolutely no logical sense, but it still gets me down every time I think about it. Anyway, I completely understand OP.

@ctmk14:  I don’t think they will regret moving! Haha! It’s not that we’re priced out, I just don’t believe in paying soooo much money for something that will only allow a roof over my head for 30 more days and that’s it! No mortgage! There’s a lot of logistics that we are thinking about before we move out though. We live and work in the city so moving an hour away will definitely change things, so we’ll see.

@ctmk14:  Thankfully, I don’t get that feeling when I look at mothers and their children (we’re CBC), but I feel it every time I see a cute puppy. I want to take it home every time, and that would be crazy considering we already have two standard poodles. TBH we’d likely run a full fledged shelter if DH would allow it.

SO and I considered living in Manhattan but couldn’t believe how expensive it is. We’ll just stick to living in California and VISIT Manhattan from time to time.
