    This is true, I'm an engineer, there's jobs in any economy doing this.

    Florida, Minnesota, Colorado, The Isles kinda

    Haha you're not bitter about that at all are you?

    Then again, it's expensive as **** to live in New Jerssey
    And that is why I left for Maryland, it was cheaper than NJ. I was 14 too in 1995 and swore I would get season tickets...oh well.
    Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

    Newark will never be main metropolitan city in the area. The metro hub of the region is NYC.

    Growing up when I said I was going into the city, I didn't mean Newark

    Not at all. It's a crap policy but it doesn't really bother me. But it's a direct reason why this team is such a lifeless slug.

    It's still a big city and it's on the way to NYC, you can't really put it anywhere in NJ and call it the big city. It's not as bad as the CAA.

    It's better from what I can tell (I moved from NJ during the lockout), but it doesn't get rid of the regional politics, which was strong in the past and still exist.

    And as you mentioned Lou and the Devils didn't manage the brand well in the 90s, especially coming off the Herb Brooks disaster who was popular with the press.

    For me my job is kinda keeping me here. Not much need for a Wall Street networking engineer outside of Wall Street

    I've worked financial services for over 10 years, a lot of my money goes to housing and cost of living, but luckily I do alright enough to have a good chunk left over. Any other sector I'd probably be gone too.

    Since I go to Sweden so often, and with the dollar value now, NJ still seems cheap Subway in Stockholm is like 10 bucks. Haircut? $100 Only thing cheaper than here is...going to hockey. The irony.

    And Montreal. ****, that city is expensive as hell.

    I had a chance to stay going from a dot com to a Wall Street firm. I hated working in NYC and wanted a more rural feel. I have found a little slice of heaven here in the Wedge (PA, DE and MD border). No regrets really other than not being local to the Devs.

    If Zillow is right then where I grew up in Middletown ironically the cost of living has equalized a ton. I haven't saved much which means I didn't move far enough away..lol.
