My wife and I have been flirting with the idea of moving out of NY for a little while now. Living in NY has gotten to be pretty expensive with high property taxes (at least were I live) and a fairly high cost of living. Pizza costs at least $2.50- $3 a slice and bagels are almost $1. These are just some indicators about how life has gotten very expensive. I've taken the time to look at many cities across the USA and have settled on one in particular because several factors: A Nice Growing Orthodox Jewish community complete with eruv, mikvah, religious schools, some kosher restaurants and nice size properties at very affordable prices. Until now we only thought about this, but now we are taking the first step and actually flying out to take a look around later this week. Looking forward to a Bon Voyage!
