1.well my family lives in scranton the community is a very nice growing young yeshivish community and real estate is quite low w/ close proximity to ny (if thats a good thing lol)
2. rochester has a very nice growing chofetz chaim style community full of very warm people and the yeshiva just started a few yrs ago a new day school w/ a pizza place and shabbos takeout
3. the shul in far north dallas has a cholent contest every winter and a growing yeshiva with warm rebbeim and geshmake guys
4. waterbury i herd is cheap but no mikveh yet so thats bad i guess

Detroit has a fabulous warm community with good chinuch. Housing is very cheap. One big chasoron – the economy there is really bad so jobs are difficult to find.
Cleveland is also a very nice community, as is Baltimore. Both also have afordable houseing and good chinuch.
I hear Passaic, NJ is wonderful – young growing frum community.
Chicago has a nice community – housing more expensive.
There is politics everywhere. My personal feeling is the smaller the community the worse the politics.
I think people who live in New York think that if you go through the Holland Tunnel you fall off the end of the earth. Not so, there’s a whole big world out there with many nice frum communities that are heimish and offer good chinuch. In many ways I think raising a family out of town is easier. People are not so annonymous so it’s easy to get lost and there is a community that’s there for you. I grew up out of town and raised my children out of town and believe it or not I find tzinus to be better out of town. Again I think it’s because you’re not annonymous there. There are many pros to living out of town.January 5, 2010 11:13 pm at 11:13 pm #671617Pashuteh YidMember
Haifagirl, if you don’t care about English, you could move to Boro Park which is much closer.January 6, 2010 1:10 am at 1:10 am #671618westcoastMember
I dont live in LA but I have been to The Valley a couple of times and I would say it is very friendly and warm. There are also many shuls and daycares.January 6, 2010 1:22 am at 1:22 am #671619HIEParticipant
brooklyn, more specifically flatbush ROCKS!! the biggest frum community after israel.January 6, 2010 2:20 am at 2:20 am #671620mom12Participant
Pashuta Yid…what was that about Boro Park.????…..January 6, 2010 2:47 am at 2:47 am #671621mybatMember
Well mexico city has a very nice frum community, the weathers nice and there are kosher restaurants, religious schools , mikvahs, etc. But its a different country so its VERY different to anything you’re probably used to. So it could be a culture shock to a lot of people , especially if you’ve never been out of the NY bubble.January 6, 2010 4:09 am at 4:09 am #671622The Queen of PersiaMember
West Hartford is not far from Waterbury, and they have a Mikvah. Most mikvah locations can be found at http://www.mikveh.org.January 6, 2010 4:18 am at 4:18 am #671623rockymountainsMember
Denver is a wonderful warm community,yes it has a mikvah(actually 3 one in each neighborhood)yeshivah,bais yaakov & kollel. Housing is very affordable and as for the weather if you don’t like it wait 10 minutes and it will change. If you want to be part of a “community” Denver is the place.January 6, 2010 4:30 am at 4:30 am #671624
mybat, i dont know about mexico city one of my friends fathers got kidnapped and another friends uncle got kidnapped there-by the police!!!…theres something wrong in a place where the police are the bad guys!!!January 6, 2010 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #671625mybatMember
Really?? I guess you just become used to being very careful with how you walk around and where you go when you’re living here. Oh, and pray to Hashem of course, because anywhere it could be dangerous.
