I did recently. Happy to connect

Your target cities are very different from one another. Care to elaborate on how you came up with that short list so we can try to offer perspective?

Let your career interests drive your decision. Most places offer salaries in line with living expenses (SF to a limited extent though).

Moved from NJ to Austin first and now SF. Dm me.

New York to Austin - happy and no complaints. Might not have the New York skyline but a lot of other things to offer.

Tampa would probably stretch your dollar the furthest.

Your yearly reminder that if you’d bought the DJIA in 1929 you didn’t become profitable in real terms until 1955. It wasn’t just WW2. If you’d bought the DJIA at the beginning of 1966 you lost almost 75% to inflation over two decades and didn’t recover in real terms until 1995. You’d have made nothing between JFK’s death and Clinton’s second term. We are in a particularly weird period of “stonks only go up” but remember those 8% returns over the long run mask generation-defining risks.
