The last thing Colorado needs is more snotty, metrosexual, liberal New Yorkers moving in.

Stay where you are and wallow in your own pigshit.

The southwest of the Denver metro area is somewhat expensive.. Highlands Ranch area. Do you have a city you are looking at in particular?


Littleton Ken Caryle area to start w/Sis who settled there back in '90. Will decide on permanent living situation once I get settled into new employ.
 Quoting: Inanna of Sumeria



That's not a bad spot to start from, there is lots of commerce in that area and it's close to other industrial regions of the metro (Englewood). You will also be quite close to the mountains, Morrison, Kittredge, and Evergreen are all directly west of you just a few miles. You'll be able to see the mountains quite clearly from littleton.

Lemme guess ... you are a liberal ... you voted for Obama ... you haven't a clue ... and there is a pretty good chance you are an elitist and live in Boulder. Boulder should be nuked.

You are homeless in NYC?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 567793


I'm actually north of NY. Looking out at the mid-Hudson bridge at the moment.
When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come!" I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand.

Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"

Do you have a driver's license?

You can get a job, driving
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 567793


Driving what? My last cabbie job netted me about 20 bucks a nite upstate.

I am working at getting my CDL though. Long-haul trucking out of Colorado is what I am looking at doing for five years or so. build up enough capital to put down on a home.

Stayed there for my sis's wedding couple years back, the actual wedding took place at a small Chaple up on Red Rock.

Driving cab? I don't think so. That sux worse than driving rigs I'm sure. Plus, the city is even more expensive than up here, and I'm not gonna commute everyday for some bulsshit little driving job.

Considering a move to Denver, Southwest near the foothills. Any thoughts from others who have moved from NY or elsewhere to Denver, or lifetime Denver resident comments welcome.

If you moved there from NY, are you going to stay since you love it so much?

If you moved to Denver from somewhere else, do you want to stay?

Or, are you in NY or elsewhere and want to get out of Dodge and are moving to Denver as well?

thx.

I live in Boulder, absolutely love it here. Mostly because I am an outdoorsy person. If you're expecting a thriving nightlife or club scene like what NYC has, you are looking at the wrong city.

Has Denver changed that much? I know when I visited my brother in Colorado Springs the clubs were pretty good. Course, this was back in 1994...

Minimum wage bullshit jobs are about the same wherever you go. But here in NY you can't survive on 9 or 10 bucks an hour when rent is well over a grand for some shithole. Out there you got descent places in real complexes for less than half that. Plus utilities are a lot cheaper.

Yep, I like to sit on a big rock in the rushing Boulder Creek in the spring and meditate. Then jump in the snow-melt rushing waters, and bike home.

But I understand if this is not most people's idea of fun! LOL

Denver's red-light district is rumored to be east Colfax. I have a buddy who lived in just that area- he says the folks who live there are pretty nice- he compared that particular ghetto to "Sesame Street, with crack".
The 16th Street Mall is a fun place to go.
The National Western Stockshow is great if you like ranch stuff.
The Zoo is great and it has a nice park around it.

I'll pass on that one. Everything else you said is good though. ;) I also forgot to mention all the friendly faces. I've never been in a more friendly town than Boulder. Everyone smiles and waves on the bike trails, everyone has a good attitude, and if someone is feeling down, they at least won't pass it on to you. If you see me on my bike on a trail, smile and wave, because I'll do it to you first. :)

Re: Moving to Denver /Boulder from NYC - thoughts appreciated
I had moved to Denver from Seattle a few years back and I returned to Seattle after 5 years. I can only imagine the NYC jump will be more of a culture shock than Seattle was.

Before I get jumped on, lemme say I met a lot of nice people with good hearts and that does not reflect on my opinion about Denver or Colorado in general. I visit Denver often and it has a unique personality that can't be explained. However, long term it was not my cup of tea.

This is from the perspective of a then artsy 30ish female who likes a variety of music, arts (shows, clubs, gallerys), styles and foods who isn't big on sports.
It's beautiful (jaw droppingly beautiful) and there is plenty to do if you like the outdoors (hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing) and the Broncos. For me, after the beauty part was fully appreciated I found I didn't quite "fit in". I felt for a large city it had a limited perspective.

You will miss food most -authentic Asian, Japanese and Thai, fresh seafood, real pizza and any other ethnic food (Greek, Italian) you may enjoy. I missed good coffee but thatís a Seattle thing. However you will taste the best Mexican food ever.

Flip side -

My husband's family made the same move and they love it there. They fell into a nice town outside the city (north) and love the small town life with easy access to the city/mountains.
