Thinking of relocating to Boston from NYC

Hello everyone,

I've been living in Brooklyn, NY for several years but I'm thinking more and more of moving to Boston. About a year ago I have visited Boston for weekend with my girlfriend and I really liked the city. The city has this nice mood I can't really describe in words. Something different than NYC, something I think I would prefer...but. I was there only for weekend so I know nothing about Boston. I would like to hear some opinions form people who live in Boston and people who lived in both cities. What are the cons, pros and so on, folks?

Boston is great! so is Providence RI. Both cities are much more gentrified than NYC. I spent alot of time in Jamacia Plains and really liked it. Best of luck!

I was reading recently that if you make $50,000 a year in Chicago you would need to make $100,000 just to live the same way in NY. Now that... is nuts.

A little studio apt in NYC rents for $1500-2000 per month

In Chicago you can get a 2 bedroom for $750 depending on which area you choose.

For those prices you might as well go live in London:):)

Come to Chicago and get away from that East Coast, lots of Polish ppl here.

I was in Patterson N.J. once, Ill never go back there either:)

only one worse smelling place......

Bourbon street in the morning sun...Phew!!!!!

Have been to Chicago and liked it too. I heard winters are crazy over there.
