What's up New York?With my wife in her final year of residency, we are once again looking for a place to settle in the lower 48 states. We hope that this move will be permanent. This is your chance to add two hard workers* and two gifted children to your community. Please tell us why we should move to your town. My dream home would be Boulder, Colorado; hers would be New York City. Our current search list, which changes often, includes St Louis; Kansas City; Bloomington, Indiana; Eugene, Oregon; and North Texas. We both like what little we know about the West Coast and the Mid-Atlantic states. Here are our criteria, in order of importance:1. Jobs: A medical center with challenging job opportunities in Anesthesia. 2. Schools: Good public or secular private schools. 3. Religion: We would not want to attempt to raise a family in a neighborhood dominated by social conservatives. This eliminates Utah and the smaller towns in the South and the Midwest. 4. Culture: Asian culture in the city or within easy driving distance is a definite plus. We like college towns for diversity and culture. We do not want to live in a place where English is the second language. This eliminates Miami and San Antonio. 5. Weather: My wife would like winters no more severe than those in Iowa, for example. This disadvantages the Rocky Mountain states, the Dakotas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and inland New England.6. Traffic: Reasonable drive times or access to public transportation. This eliminates Los Angeles and Houston, for me at least.Any feedback, positive or negative, will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance,-Wes *In all honesty, the phrase “two hard workers” counts my wife as 1.5 hard workers and myself as 0.5 of a hard worker!
