  8. New York City Suburbs...(more) 4-20-2015 1:09pm (4 replies)
    Anyone grow up in NJ or LI and move to Westchester or Connecticut when leaving city? We both grew up on LI. Have lived in NYC for 15 years and now thinking suburbs for our two dd's. DH works long hours and his office is near GCT. Commuting wise, Metro North makes all the sense. Also something exciting about moving somewhere new/different. The downside is that we both have lots of family on LI, including grandparents who we want to be involved and who are always there to pitch in. Having that extra help would be a great benefit of the burbs. Just wondering how others made the decision and how it has worked out.

    Looking at a midsize coop in an area in transition on UES. It's a bit run down compared to others in the common areas (windows, elevators, basement, etc.), but people coming in are paying far more than what was paid in the past (say $1.6-8 for small 3 bed). Some of the units have been renovated very high end and are occupied by families, but you can see that many current residents are original owners (went coop in late 80's). Can the transition of the building happen pretty quickly or is this more like decades before the building itself (apartment from the units) is upgraded?
