living in Islip, Long Island

One of my favorite brothers has a job opportunity that would bring him to the East Coast from a small town in the Midwest (Yay!). Specifically, he would probably move his family to Islip, Long Island. He called to ask me what the area was like and I had no idea how to answer him. I live in North Brooklyn and have only been to Long Island a couple of times for brief visits. So I'm asking here for any insight into what life is like in Islip. I can find some facts online, of course, but nothing that gives and inside view of day to day living. Is it really expensive to live there? What is the culture like? Anything unique and wonderful about the place? Does it totally suck? [more inside]

How does our (potential new) Indiana neighborhood skew politically?

I've lived in the same neighborhood for more than 15 years and am currently negotiating a move to a new less-known-to-me neighborhood in Indianapolis. I'm curious about how the new neighborhood leans politically. I seem to remember seeing a color-coded map of how Indiana's voting districts/polling places voted in the last general election, but am now unable to find it. Any suggestions on how to find this data?

Do I want to be an expat?

Where is a good small city with decent weather for happening couple?

We are looking for a small city without cold winters that has a large body of water - no inland towns for us- and is vibrant, cultured and intelligent. We have lived in LA, NY and Miami and are now in Durham, Nc - finding it too woodsy and land locked and way to hot in the summer here. We both work and are in our early sixties.

Ranking cities based on UX/front end dev job potential

My partner's job will soon relocate him to one of the cities in the list below the fold. I am a fairly early-career front end developer who also does a lot of UX design and visualization work, and I'm hoping to move somewhere with demand for such positions and (hopefully) an active community of developers. Can someone with experience working in web development in one of these cities offer any advice? I'd also appreciate more general help in how to do my own research on the career potential of the different places I've listed. [more inside]

Moving mom up to MA

My mother, aged 73, would like to move from NYC to near us in the Boston 'burbs to be closer to us and our little daughter (though not moving in with us).

Help me find work in the US

Having just come back from visiting family in a few different states, I'm now beginning to feel that their suggestions for me to move closer to them might be a good idea. I'm from the UK and wouldn't move without a job, so where can I find potential employers who would take me seriously and not think I was too much of a hassle before they'd even read my resume? Are there any particular jobs boards for this type of thing? I would also consider a temporary move. [more inside]

Are LA City relocation assistance payments tax exempt?

In 2014 my landlord decided to demolish my building to build condos, so I received a $15k payment of relocation assistance from my landlord as mandated by the Rent Stabilization Ordinance of the Los Angeles Municipal Code and overseen by LA Housing Development (now the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department, I guess). Is this exempt from State and Federal taxes? [more inside]

A question about job-hunting remotely

I live in Texas, but I'm actively seeking to move to Boston (for personal reasons), and I'm planning on moving there as soon as I find a job. I'm not moving sooner because I'm underemployed, living on savings, and the cost of living where I am now is much lower. What language can I include in a cover letter that concisely signals both "I'd be happy to move there at a moment's notice" and "I am not trying to con you into paying for my relocation"? Should I quit listing my Texas address and start putting a friend's Boston-area address on my resume instead? Am I overthinking this?
