Best places to live
After living and working in Manhattan for ten years I knew it was time to move out. Being an English native I didn’t have a clue about where to start looking. I kept scanning maps and picking up tips but when it came down to it, the areas I checked out were completely driven by the properties I found for sale in the New York times that sounded like what I was after. I spent about 18 months literally driving around the countryside until I ended up in Kerhonkson, NY. I have a beautiful place, in the middle of nowhere, that I absolutely love. I’m lucky. That said, knowing what I know now, having lived in ulster county for almost 10 years, I think had information been readily available I would have probably preferred northern Dutchess or Southern Columbia county, both are as rural as where I live, unspoilt and gorgeous, but those areas have better access to the equestrian community that I have become part of. The thing is there was just no way to know with spending mad amounts of time exploring, researching, and driving around, which I didn’t have as a technology and publishing exec.

That’s why my partner Harris Safier, a local real estate legend, and I started bestplace2move.com – I would loved to have been able to type in rural, within a 2 hour drive, equestrian, hiking, house, for about $300,000 who knows what would have come up back in the day!
