Rui,

I just conversated with a friend from Poughkeepsie and he said the same thing. He gave me some good directions and tips for traveling through the area.

Kevin, you're right 287 is the way.

well Marc801 (formerly known as Marc203) I'd like to hear that argument for sure! Really though, I live on the line and run my business in CT mostly so really I go both ways(thats what she said). If I had to make a choice it would be easy, legal weed, better rock, better skiing, Mitt Romney(wink wink), whats not to like?

Florida is not the center of southern rock climbing. In the South (VA, NC, TN, WV, AL, GA) there are just as many routes on Mt Project as the North East. The difference is that the Rock tends to be bigger and better on average in the South. There is also lots of awesome sandstone along with the quartzite, granite and gneiss that the North East has. I know that Charlotte might be a bit far south but the argument can be made that its a better place to travel from as weather delays are seldom an issue. Summer climbing may not be the best, but plenty of high country stuff that's doable in the shade.


Charlotte sucks. All the rock is choss and it takes forever to get anywhere to climb. Anyone who lives in Charlotte is dumb and is definitely a Gumby. 1/10 would not live there. NE is the best place to climb.

Something that people in this thread are forgetting..... The OP said: "The only requirement is that I live near a major airport preferably between Baltimore and Boston. " When a company sets that as a requirement, they mean it. They're looking for that person to live relatively near-by, not a 2hr commute. They also want their employee to travel quickly, meaning lots of flight options, ideally many of them non-stop. In short they want their employee to be able to minimize travel time. Dinkey little airports like Providence, Manchester NH, Charlotte, Burlington, Hartford, et al just don't qualify. From the company's perspective, when they say between Baltimore and Boston and "major", there are really only about 5 or so. I wouldn't be at all surprised if they said no to living in a number of places strongly suggested by some in this thread. New Paltz immediately comes to mind.


Really good research there bud. Charlotte was the 8th busiest airport in the US back in 2015 in terms of passengers and it has expanded even more since. Boston was 17th and Baltimore was 22nd. In fact the only NE airport that beat it was JFK. Great job with your research bud.

Edit: Correct, JFK is not in NE. JFK is between Baltimore and Boston. I got burned.

Fixed. ;-)

That map of Mass is accurate from what I can tell, and strangely specific in some of the details.

Places To Live on T Roper's map
From south to north and only south, so in reverse order of preference if NE means New England
And Not North East.
1) at the 'O' in the word 'of' in the " annexed Territory . . "
2) by The last, 'n' of the word England, on the river ( possibly at the 'b' up river )
3)It is a tye, either 'e' the one in the word 'New' or the last
'e' in the Word " Worcester"

As for all that Red Sox V's Yankee territory stuff?
I climb all baseball season &
I am not a fan of game sports anymore other than in ( occasionally required )
casual social pass-time.



So torn ? It is an eternal conflict
Born in Boston, ( Blck nGld Bruins blood)
But. . . !
Raised in Jersey (teenage70sRx' rllz)

What & where are my opinions fro My?
$unk a ship Trying to make "The Gunks in my backyard " work out
Work for the long term,? Nope, epic fail.
I like where I am, Central North East Corridor easy 1hour drive to home stone in the Gunks.
And a wealth of variety of small crags in a 3 hr drive.
Then great highway options / short flights for farther southern warmth
At Red River & the New "

This is hilarious. Watching from my front porch at 5280 about which part of the Northeast is worse. Good ole East coast banter. Ralph Swansen

You may be a lot of things, but you definitely ain't a "bad man".

Y'all so shook you can't even be honest about what you're talkin' about. It's ok, time will tell. Can't hide forever.

FWIW, a MA plate gets a similar reaction (treatment) in VT/NH/ME as does a CO plate in UT/WY... Massachusetts is the Colorado of New England, and Colorado is the Massachusetts of the Rockies. I guess the resentment is inevitable when denizens of big urban population centers travel to the neighboring more rural sparsely populated states (e.g. CA to OR/ID/NV). For some reason, NY plates don't get that reaction... doligo

It's not the location as much as the attitude that infects many from said locations. I mean, there's a reason for terms like Masshole and Colorado BroBrah.
