NJ to CT?

Hi, I recently was offered a job on 1st Ave near Grand Central in NYC. I live in Maplewood, NJ which makes for a rather long commute so my wife and I have discussing the possibility of CT or Upstate NY. We really like the culture of Maplewood. It's very diverse and accepting. A lot of families move from Brooklyn and it has a very artsy culture. I was wondering if anyone knows of towns in the NY or CT that have a similar feel?

What to do in Falmouth, Jamaica?

So next week, my girlfriend and I are going on a cruise for our third year anniversary booked through Royal Caribbean that leaves from Florida and stops at Labidee, Haiti; Falmouth, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman; and Cozumel, Mexico. This is my first cruise, and my girlfriend’s eighth cruise. We have already booked awesome excursions in Labadee (parasailing!), George Town (turtle farm and stingray city!), and Cozumel (snorkeling boat tour!), but we are unsure what to do in Falmouth since it’s a relatively new port.

One town forward, two towns back

My colleagues in New Jersey often refer to places as "the next town over" or "two towns down from me." I get the general idea, but as life-long Southern Californian, I feel like I'm not getting the full, nuanced meaning. [more inside]

Mystery 1950's (?) print

Can you help with identifying this mystery print? It shows a 'futuristic' town, with bubbly/jet-like cars and trains going past a mall. I saw this print at the Philly City Archives. They think that it might be set in Lawnview, in northeast Philadelphia, but they don't know, and there are a number of other Lawnviews in the US, e.g. in Dallas. [more inside]

My family is considering moving to Oregon (or conceivably Washington) in a couple of years, and we are going to visit soon.
