    New York vs New Jersey

    Never said I wasnt diversified. And I know we happened to do our sale/purchase transactions at the right time. Neither of us bought our first places just to flip them a couple of years later. We also didnt buy more than we could afford - which seems to be part of the problem with some of the...

    New York vs New Jersey

    Growing up in Bayside , then living in Forest Hills and now Riverdale - I can say all those neighborhoods listed above are great for a couple with or without kids. There are plenty of parks and schools to chose from, and other activities. Riverdale is the most suburban of all (unbelievably...
