Next time I think about moving to FL I'll think about Boca. As of yet such thoughts have never entered my mind though.  :D

If you can handle the heat, it's an incredible place to live.
IME, it gets easier the second summer.

To be fair he grew up in NMB, so he's been used to it for a long time. I am not good at handling the heat at all. Maybe it's because I lived in Milwaukee for 7 years, but I could barely handle south FL the few times I was there in Feb/Mar when it was 80 and humid (for an Angeleno).

thanks - I was looking AT the top of the picture. Now I see that it's written on DDF on top of the picture. will be interested to read the article.
They talk about the few 'eateries' and not much about the 3 Mikvaos, and just about 2 lines on the chinuch, younger pre-school options aren't mentioned.
(Neither is "Dan's Deals" mentioned alongside Cleveland Clinic.)

Would be cool if they had a monthly series of out-of-town profiles of midsized cities..

The orthodox shul struggles to get a minyan on Sunday. It's a beautiful shul. On shabbos I think they have around 150 people.
I don't think there are any restaurants. Homes IIRC are extremely cheap
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

This one restaurant came up in search - http://www.terraalbany.com/about/kosher/. And there are large kosher aisles in a few supermarkets.
