Needing a change

I want to move. Anywhere but here. New York? LA? San Fran? Rome? Zimbabwe? Suggestions welcome.

  1. tom says:

    NY, definitely. Its the capital of the world.

  2. Chad says:

    Ummm, Zimbabwe? <a href="http://strikeslip.org/archives/000447.php" rel="nofollow">Hell no</a>. You might as well move to lovely downtown Sarajevo.

    How about Portland, Oregon? Or London? Florence? Tulsa?

  3. Nikki says:

    Cinque Terra, Italy.

    Right on the Riviera, baby!

    The most beautiful place EVER.

  4. chris says:

    Cinque Terra? Not unless you want to ride a fenicular (sp?) all day, or buy stock in Timberland boots.

    I vote Victoria, Canada. Or New York City. Or you can just eschew the whole house thing for a while. That, I think, would suit you best.

  5. chris says:

    Look, stop kicking it around and just move. Get yourself a non-prewar in B*K*L*Y*N and join the crowd. crimney. :D

    there's always portland, yeah - or stay on the east coast. i'm debating what to do when my lease is up in May. thinkin about Burlington, VT.

  7. alex says:

    I can't get much worse than Nebraska. When my lease is up I'm planning on moving to Chicago - but would rather live in London.

    I'm getting to the "anywhere but here" complex. Which isn't good, because it's the mentality that anywhere has got to be better than this. And I don't think it's location specific. I think it's situational. But the location is a major contributor.

    If I could only afford New York...

    chad I have a message for you:

    I AM MOVING TO DOWNTOWN SARAJEVO ASSMUNCH!

    :)

    <em>If I could only afford New York...</em>

    There's always hoboken! Seriously, though... I can't get enough of Glebe. If I lived anywhere nere Glebe, specifically as close as you, I don't know what I'd do with myself. I'd drive up and down it everyday!

  11. Waldo says:

    Alex, it's funny: I'd <i>really</i> like to live in Nebraska. Grass always being greener and all that.

    John, you want some small-town loving and you know it. None of this major-cities-of-the-world. Move to <a href="http://www.townoforangeva.org/" rel="nofollow">Orange</a> or <a href="http://www.scottsvilleva.com/" rel="nofollow">Scottsville</a> or something.

  12. chris says:

    You know, John...there are still relatively inexpensive places to be found outside NYC. Greenwich for example, with a roomate, amounts to about $500 - $700 a month.

  13. shep says:

    Actually, going off what Chris said...my friends Rich and Michelle live with a third person in a small joint in Astoria, Queens - it's running them about $1200 a month. It's small - I mean, my place has more square footage than theirs, barely - and I pay $505 a month.

    I hear you on this - my lease is up end-of-May, and I'm not sure where I'm going yet, but leaving Rochester is crucial at this point. I ain't getting any younger.

    Dave, you touched me deelpy with this video. My late husband used to sing this song to our son when he was quite young. The visuals and the music are terrific. Is it possible to get a DVD of this, or a CD of the music?Your work is outstanding. I have three published novels and supplied the cover art from paintings I had done (forgive me for wanting to do my own thing. LOL) If I decide to have a finished memoir published I may need some help with that cover.Congratulations on your excellent work.Masrie
