Default NYC base and live in Connecticut?

With this huge displacement bid, I'm looking at maybe moving bases. Anybody here fly out of NY and live in CT?
How is the drive/train journey to JFK from somewhere like Stamford? Is it doable, or is it just too far?
Thanks,
Chowmi

You'll make yourself crazy taking the train. Driving it's about 40 miles to the parking lot. Can take anywhere from 40 mins to 2 hours.

I'm in SLC, live just north of there. I'm a 7ER FO, and will be displaced. Just looking at options right now.

Interesting story from local CT online newspaper.

According to this, the real estate in CT going through the roof as all the urban sophisticates are rediscovering the health benefits of not living up close and personal with 8 million sneezing, coughing, Covid-ing people.

Good news if you want to sell your house in CT. Bad news for buyers as inventory is being snapped up sight unseen from New Yorkers who want a second home bolt-hole. Hate to buy into a market that might collapse in 3-5 years as when NYC people discover they can't stand having to mow a lawn and cook their own meals.

Then again, who knows? Nobody knows anything. The Gell-Mann amnesia effect is real, and it is the press, personified.

A tidal wave': New Yorkers snapping up CT homes as they flee the city


(Also in SLC, also considering a forced NYC move. Missus ain't gonna like it)

I was NYC based for several years but lived in PA not CT. Bucks County is northeast of Philly and is nice. Costs less than NJ and CT. Just about an hour drive to EWR so you can sit shortfall from home. It might be an option for you to consider.

I second this. I grew up in CT and live in NEPA now. It’s a beautiful part of the country. There’s no way I would ever entertain moving back to a high-tax state like CT.
