I struggle with this because I have a life similar to yours in NYC- the life I always wanted when I was growing up bored in an idyllic suburb. But now that I have DB, I see that Main Street/small community life much more rose-colored. Now, that came with almost no diversity- white, Protestant, rich, preppy, lean conservative- which I couldn't tolerate. And with few exceptions, the women stayed home. The biggest difference was slower speed of life and inward focus. Everyone did Turkey Trot. Everyone went to Light Up Night. If someone had a sick kid, the whole town rallied with fundraisers/meals/etc. [ Reply | More ]

It sounds like city life suits you, so you should stay. But I can think of lots of drawback (and I love Manhattan). It's filthy, it's noisy, traffic is horrendous, the subway smells, and there are rats. You have to pay for parking. and getting your kid into a decent school is a full time job, and often cost an arm and a leg. No matter how much money you have to spend on real estate, you probably won't have enough to host a pool party for 15 kids, or a slumber party for these 15 kids without annoying your neighbors. That's probably what people think when they consider moving to the suburbs [ Reply | More ]

I grew up living in the burbs and HATED it -- happily raise my kids in the city. That being said, of course there are drawbacks. You are crazy if you can't think of any no matter how much money you have: (1) You don't have suburban sprawl type space no matter how rich you are. You may have it in the Hamptons but then you have to schlep there and back and you can't bring tons of people with you. It's unlikely you have a pool in your backyard and you definitely don't have a tennis court or golf course.; (2) People are generally pretty competitive or at least ambitious. I like this, but it's not for everyone. (3) Some people prefer to get in their own cars and drive without being stuck in traffic or on a crowded train. (4) No matter how much money you have, schools are not easy. You have to apply for both private and public at some point. I know billionaires who are not happy with their kids' schools. It's not like walking down to the street and registering for a neighborhood school. [ Reply | More ]

Digital Radiographs  Digital radiographs are one of the newest X-ray techniques. Standard X-ray film is replaced with a flat electronic pad or sensor. The image goes into a computer, where it can be viewed on a screen, stored or printed out. Digital X-rays taken at different times can be compared using a process that highlights differences between the images. Tiny changes therefore can be caught earlier. Used properly, digital X-rays use about half the radiation of conventional film. [ Reply | More ]
