Still a major city with bad traffic and a high cost of living.
Though cleaner and friendlier than NYC.

I know, I was joking.  :D

My wife and I are born and bred New Yorkers and yet have been looking to leave since we got married and will be doing so this summer
Good for you!
We are also hoping to be out of NYC by the summer.

The main community (Bathurst and Lawrence) happens to be very gashmi and five Townsy

My wife got offered a job. It's a big community but definitely an out of town one. The main community (Bathurst and Lawrence) happens to be very gashmi and five Townsy but we won't be living there
Originally we were planning to go to ORD but this fell into our laps

Very nice. Hope you guys are very happy there. :)

And all that can be said for ORD as well :)
Neither would be my first pick if I had to move.
Fair enough. But my wife was not excited about CLE. I would have loved Houston but it is way too hot. Not much other choices
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Toronto is mini NY. Still  the same schools as the NYorker wannabes . I have found LA to at least nit have the wanna be NYorker problem.

But kudos for getting out of Brooklyn

Definitely. You feel like you can't go out to dinner without getting dressed up down South. Thornhill is much more chilled out

Don't live in Brooklyn. And I don't think that's true

Sorry I thought you wrote that. Like everything about LA it's a generalization. But based on truth

That's not how I remember it -at least with the Lubavitch communities...
