Living in New York City got old.
I hated being in the city.
It was riddled with homeless people, loud noises and crime. I absolutely didn’t want to raise a family there; Also, the prices of everything were a lot! Unluckyly I worked in New York, so what was I supposed to do? I found a large house with a nice yard in Buffalo NY. It is only a few seconds outside of New York City. It is perfect for our new family. I right now have 1 baby boy, however the people I was with and I idea to have more. I enjoy that there is minimal traffic by our house so I would guess comfortable to let our child bike around the yard. I love that there are no car horns honking, people shouting or loud radios; The cost of living in Buffalo is much better too. I can get more groceries than I did before. I have a better car and of course, our house is amazing. I don’t mind the second commute to work. I make sure to get up early and beat traffic, but during the Winter the snow is pretty tough. I make sure to have a great car furnace. I then pre-heat the car so no snow or ice is on the windshield. I then can love a toasty ride with a podcast going. The smartest move our family ever made was leaving New York City and going to Buffalo. It is safer, cleaner and a better way to live if you are a family unit.
