Six Month NYC Moving Plan

My wife are planning to move to New York in around six months. Assuming you had the $$$ & job situation figured out, what steps in moving are unique to that city, or things you wished you did before you moved there? Is there a good 'NYC basics' guide (things that tell you-- yeah you really should get a NYC driver's license, etc) that isn't geared to 22 year olds? [more inside]

Seattle suburbs or neighborhoods that are better than Ballard?

I've broken free of my stupid belief that living in Seattle in a "hip" neighborhood is a MUST for me, but I'm dealing with some depression/anxiety and have a hard time working up motivation to go exploring, so I need help on where to focus my attention for potential new places to live when my lease ends. Everett, Lake Forest Park, Kirkland, Bothell—never been to any of these! Barely know where they are on a map! [more inside]

Should I Move to TX?

I'm in CA and my company has folded. My research shows that moving to TX would be a good plan because, running the numbers, there is a reasonable amount of daily postings for positions I am suitable for across the TX metro job markets, and house prices are considerably less (read: affordable) compared to CA metro areas. So it all makes reasonable sense except for this: I have no emotional drive to relocate there. [more inside]

help! should I drop out of my MFA writing program?

I started a MFA writing program in Vancouver this fall. I wasn't sure about whether I should go or not to begin with, and now, I'm still second-guess and worrying I made a big mistake.

Jewish communities- greater Boston

My family is looking to move out of our small condo in Cambridge to a nearby suburb that will give us more space, great schools, green space, and a community to call our own for our growing family.

Need tips for teenager making pre-move connections in LA area

My son and I are moving to the LA area (specifically Alhambra) from northern Michigan in a few months. He's 14 and I'd like to take whatever steps I can to smooth the transition for him. Toward that end, does anyone in the area (or elsewhere) have any ideas as to how he could start making local/neighborhood connections/friends before we move? I've searched for online clubs, etc., but haven't found much (and those can be questionable anyway). Any advice is appreciated - thank you!

Getting the clothes and toys from the US to Germany

My friends are moving the family from the US to Germany. They are planning on getting rid of most of the things they own, but would like to keep a number of the children's toys and books, some instruments, clothing, and miscellaneous other items. I'm guessing they're looking to keep around 250lbs of stuff to be shipped in boxes. What is the least expensive way of shipping several 40ish pound boxes from the US to Germany?

What to do with 25 year old baseball memorabilia?

So, back in grade 5 (or 5th grade, as we called it in Brooklyn), our teacher had us all write to various sports teams and basically ask for free stuff. I ended up deluged with schedules, stickers, postcards, and a few autographed photos. Somewhere along the way, I also picked up about a hundred autographs (on 3 x 5 index cards, with neatly handwritten descriptions) of baseball players from the 40s-70s.
