[ - ] Well, husband's headed back down to Florida and I just moved 20 year old into her new apartment in Queens. I have to downsize. We can't afford this apartment on the North Shore anymore. I need to find a pied a terre here in the city. I wouldn't mind a room mate but I need a low rent. I just turned 65 and I've come to listen to any wild ideas you ladies might have. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Having done both I can tell you what mattered to me in choosing Manhattan: being able to walk places, not having to be home for service repairs and not having so many things in a house that needed service, the ability of my kids to get around the city by themselves and not have to be responsible for driving them everywhere, not being stuck in small-town mentality where every child goes to the same school and does the same activities and there is a norm (whatever the norm for that town is) that needs to be followed. I love walking out of my apartment and not having an agenda and the day just happens upon us. That being said, we made sure to live in a good school district (D2) that has so far worked out for our children in HS and MS. The only negative I can think of for us is the constant pressure to make sure the kids are doing well in school because it ultimately matters. [ Reply | More ]

He's a trader, he trades digital trading cards. He makes a few thousand a month. He only leaves the apartment to go to the grocery store and to meet me at the subway after work. He spends the rest of his time at home laying in bed. His children live in Texas with their mom, he's a good stepdad to my son. He does all the cooking and he does it wonderfully, he's an amazing cook. He's really smart, he's really funny, he makes me feel amazing. I love him so much. [ Reply | More ]

I can't speak to the others, but a lot of my friends and coworkers went to UCLA. They said there isn't much of a support system and the school is so large that many students struggle initially and feel kind of "lost". If your child wants a more anonymous experience, they might prefer that - I'm an introvert so it wouldn't have bothered me. [ Reply | More ]

I worked at Berkeley for a while, it was a cool, quirky place. I'm not a fan of the housing crunch for undergrads there but it was a perfectly fine place to go to college. There were always active student groups and the undecided majors always found some kind of calling. That said, if your kid gets into Stanford, send them to Stanford. [ Reply | More ]

Stanford- Beautiful campus, small classes, super hard to get into, easy to graduate and lots of individual attention. Student body is a mix. Cal- Beautiful campus, large classes, no hand holding, lots of school spirit. Surrounding area is filled with bums UCLA- Okay campus, large classes, student body smart but not as competitive as Cal or as smart as Stanford. Very LA. Need to "dress" to go class. Lots of school spirit. Not sure about the surrounding campus. [ Reply | More ]
