Thoughts on accepting an offer for a HCOL city and moving into the suburbs? Really looking forward to leaving city life behind but not the salary. Has anyone done this?

Are you married or in a serious, long term relationship? Do you have kids? If the answer is no to both I wouldn’t move to the suburbs. And I live there now (and like it.) But the suburbs are a terrible place to be single. And they’re mostly designed around families with kids in terms of home sizes and zoning. Great for families. Not great otherwise.

I live on Long Island but work in NYC. I live in an apartment for $2,700 with all the frills: W/D, dishwasher, true one bedroom, rooftop, outdoor spaces, etc.

I had moved home to my parents’ on LI before COVID and the commute was peaceful. Hopped on the train, slept most days and read or brainstormed others. Probably 80 minutes door to door.

A lot more doable now with hybrid and remote but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t looking into remote for my next job.

Another friend is about to become a CFO and moved to New Jersey - like deep in North Jersey. He basically negotiated only coming into the office 1-2x a week so he could live further away and pay somewhat normal prices

Did this and did not enjoy it so we moved back to Brooklyn 7 months after the move. Previously lived in Brooklyn in a one bedroom. Moved into a renovated 2 bedroom in Long Island (Long Beach) right by the beach. It was beautiful but all my friends were in the city so I still found myself taking the train or driving to see them. Also had a tough time making new friends during the pandemic. I was able to work remotely but was very lonely working at home all day long in a new town and my husband drove into Brooklyn every day for work (the train wasn’t convenient for where his work was in Brooklyn). Really depends on your situation and if you need consistent community and social interaction and if a long commute is stressful.

This is hopeful thank you for sharing. A recruiter for a company I really like said CD was really wanting to do hybrid 3x a week. I’m hoping to negotiate remote or something much less than 3x.

Get it in writing.
