  2. New York City A shift from women waiting longer to have children to having them earlier again?...(more) 5-19-2015 10:32am (37 replies)
    I'm not sure if this is my circle of friends but it seems like everyone starts having children earlier again, I always wanted to wait awhile but with everyone having children i feel pressured to get started too, so is there really a shift again to having children earlier?

    Last Sunday I was walking down Lexington Ave. near 79th St. with my young children after having a Mother's Day brunch. One woman who had dark hair and wearing dark color glass frames walked by. She looked at me and made some comments I couldn't hear very well, and spit on the sidewalk with a disgusting "yuck" sound. I thought maybe she saw something gross on the street and didn't worry. And then she walked over to me and made the yuck sound again as she looked at my face, spitting on the ground. Yesterday I was walking down Lexington Ave. in the mid 70s and ran into her again. When she saw me, she did the exact same thing as what she had done on Sunday. I have absolutely no idea why anyone would do this to a stranger. For your information I am Asian American and have lived in the neighborhood for about 15 years. I am aware of another crazy lady who lives in the area and often spits and screams her lungs out as she walks up and down Third Ave. But she doesn'

    Thinking of moving to the burbs before having children, don't need a big house but want a small yard. Budget about 2M, but can go higher if need be. Want to be in area with good schools. What are the differences between Bronxville and Darien besides the beach? Are they really as preppy and rich as people make it seem to be? Reported HHI not that high, it seems… All insights appreciated!
