Some years ago my niece, who then lived in NYC and now lives in New Jersey, asked me during one of my many visits why I didn't move back to New York. I told her "There's nothing for me here". She replied, "Your whole family is here", to which I replied, "That is not enough".

That includes a twin brother, nieces, a grand-niece and 2 grand- nephews, a daughter and two grandsons. Plus various other relatives. My point being that you don't always make your life decisions dependent on where your family is - some folks do and more power to them. My lifestyle doesn't allow for New York City to be a place to live. Or anywhere upstate for that matter.
Come and take it!!
