It's true that we saw you grew up here in in HoD, what's true for you is the same for all of us who are still hanging here, we're kind of family here.
I like how your thoughts are very positive on your move, best way to go, and I see you being happy there too, cool, take care brother !!!
The ongoing covid situation has forced my wife and I to make a tough decision and we've put our house on the market. We simply cannot sustain our life in NJ because the property taxes are so fucking high. Had I still been working, or covid not happened things could be different but it is what it is.
Hard to sell your first house after two years and some change, but I digress.
Good news is, we're moving to Philadelphia. We've spent a lot of the past several months in quarantine with my wifes folks who bought a house in the Society Hill neighborhood. Needless to say, as much as we don't get out for obvious reasons, we've really come to dig Philly. It looks like we should be able to make a profit on our current home (thankfully people are leaving NYC like mad and the market in our area is really strong), and find something equally as nice as our home in NJ and pay significantly less in terms of taxes and our overhead.
It'll be a great place to once again hit the 'reset' button and dive right into a music scene when things are opened up again.
Funny for my fellow 'old timers' here on HOD- you've indirectly followed my journey since I was literally a teenager so it felt natural to fill you guys in.
Hope you're all well, safe, and healthy! Cheers
