The point is that Chassidim are stuck in the same five communities we've been in since the war, because ships happen to have arrived in NYC. If only they would have arrived somewhere pleasant instead...

It's time to move past the stuck mentality and choose to create communities in places we would actually enjoy living in.

That's one of the big questions I have about the Tampa plan - with the entirety of the United States open to you, why choose a place that has unpleasant weather and is just so... boring? (And yes, I know that AZ is a lot hotter. But that's been discussed to death - 110 in AZ is a lot more pleasant than 90 in FL.)

I understood the point, my point was that was no Ellis Island after WWII and Arizona is landlocked.

In any case in 1950s we needed power in numbers to create infrastructure and support eachother, itís a different world today and we donít need that to the same extent. We also have the luxury of finding/creating job opportunities anywhere. Your average Jewish immigrant to NYC in 1945-1955 didnít arrive with that mindset.

In your opinion, which are the top 5 places in the US where you'd choose to start new communities?

Casa Grande and ďTampeĒ have infinitely greater chances of success than some of those

Only one of those is in the US.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Two, but neither are in the "lower 48". I think LIH is the only one Dan mentioned previously on DDF in this context. LIH is also the only one with weather tolerable to most DDFers, though I'm with Dan on that one.

Not everyone works in the blogging business. JOBS, JOBS, not available everywhere in abundance.

Depends what you do. Lots of options other than blogging that allow you to work in or around many places.

I would think vouchers would be the #1 consideration

The vouchers in FL are pretty good. Step up gives thousands per kid.
