    Hello,

    I’m currently thinking about changing jobs and relocating. I’m from New York, but want to know more bout these places.

    What’s the night life like?

    Is a place for younger people?

    How expensive compared to nyc?

    What are the people like?

    Any outdoor activities?

    What’s the weather like? How does it effect things like cars, roads, homes, etc?

    Looking forward to you response!

    Best,
    Billy Shears

    abq native here bro but I'm also like all f***ed up

    place is mad nice to me. we got some unusual demographics for the us, the high elevation means that even tho it's a desert it still cools down a good bit at night and winter still gets pretty cold at times but without much rain/snow, i think there's plenty to do but compared to spots like nyc it's like what else rly does compare yfm? it's cheaper here definitely but it's getting expensive everywhere it feel. we got some real mf ppl and tons to do outside, big mountains and some lakes here n there, lots of pre-cac america to see ykno

    but also don't come here you'll die fr u seen the violent crime maps we only 2nd behind alaska

    Phoenix

    • good if youre towards the heart, the place is big as s*** its the 3rd buggest city in the country on oure scale size. There are retirement areas, worker areas etc but the main is good. Club life, bar life, sports, almost every artist every genre comes to phx etc.

    • really cheap. I mean everything is cheap compared to nyc besides like San Fran and upper LA. But AZ is one of the cheaper places to live. I love in the bayarea (where im orginally from) and right outside AZ. Im in AZ most year now and a quarter in the Bay. The price is why i mainly moved. And im from an outrageous living place like you, live like a king here basically.

    • Phoenix is "everyone". Outside of Phoenix and maybe Tucson tho you will only meet all white or all spanish people. Phoenix is mainly where niggas are at too. People are mostly nice here. If you go to the more ritzy areas or trailer parks that where you'll encounter the dying maga crowd that sre still upset that AZ is now a blue state. Those kind of people are still aroind but not in a major way.

    • camping, swimming, hiking, rock climbing, car racing, art shows, gem shows, car mudding, atv/dirktbikes, gun range

    • hot af especially summer, the main downside. This is legit desert. Not like LA or even Texas. Its 105+ in the summer, 40 to 60 in the winter & rest of the year 80 to 90. Mild to hot in the day depending on the season and cold to freezing at night/season. Real desert s***. Idk what you mean by affecting tho. Only thing i would say is that everything and everywhere comes with AC. Its built into everything.


    Overall:

    • Postives

    Cheap af without being in the middle of nowhere, diverse, big city vibes and experiences without the as crazy traffic and clogging. Two great colleges with ASU in PHX and UofA just over in Tucson and lot of job opportunities. Lot of land/national monuments/parks & outdoor things such as the Grand Canyon and Great Caves etc. Lot of land space too.

    • Negatives

    Hot af, cartel s***, the albeit leftover fallout of the desperate Maga & right wingers that are dying out and lost power & just the sheer size of the place can kinda be confusing/annoyng when youre new to it. And there isnt much else to go city wise outside of Phoenix and its little brother Tucson. Phx is the only major place here although it is gigantic and a lot, and Tucson is the only other option for the regular younger person. Especially if youre black. Think of it like how in Nevada only Las Vegas and Reno are really poppin like that for the average person. Thats how it with Arizona regarding Phoenix and Tucson.

    You have a car/license right?? Just wondering because in these type of places you’ll NEED a vehicle to get around

    I’m also asking this because I peeped you’re from NY. I’m from Philly and it was very tough adjusting to Phoenix being that I didn’t have a car.

    This is funny because I hated living in PHX everything is so spread out, lifestyle is a bit slower paced (compared to the East Coast), and the weather is god awful for 75% of the year (90 degree plus from April to October lmaooo)

    Oh yeah. And the nearest beach is like 6 hours away (San Diego or Puerto Peñasco). I moved back to Philly so fast lmao

    Indianapolis is interesting.
    I've been house hunting and there are some beautiful homes for like 200-300k which is insane to me

    Is it a nice city?
