Snap judgement / simulation:
YOU: currently a New York City dweller, part of a dual-income-no-kids household, fleeing the five boroughs to greener pastures upstate. You both hold jobs in the city that you plan to keep.
1) Must have easy access to good road riding. Hills or no hills, doesn't matter. Insert your own personal definition of "good road riding" here.
2) Must be north of the city, but within a 1 hour absolute-maximum commute by a reasonable form of mass transit. (We drive, but we do not want to commute in our cars.) And north because our families are up there.
3) Slight preference for east side of the Hudson River, but not a requirement.
So, where would you move?
