I asked if it was a printing company, thinking specifically it was Quad. They are a big employer in the area. I do know that the rank and file work shifts, the plant runs 24/7. Some things are less expensive than major metro areas, others more. There are a lot of smaller outlying towns that you could easily find to live in where the housing, taxes, and other associated expenses are far less and the commute VERY EASY! Let's put it this way...there is no traffic! Except for August of course. You will not find a more diverse area in terms of culture, history, scenery, activities and socioeconomics. In upstate, the wealthy and the working class all blend right in together and most times you would never who is who. It is really nice. Lake George is a bit expensive relatively speaking but it is"Queen Of American Lakes" for a good reason. There are thousands of smaller lakes and rivers to be explored and the Adirondack Park, is a 6 million acre park of public and private lands that contain some of the most awesome natural beauty of anywhere in The United States. There are 46 peaks that reach in excess of 5,000 feet and out here that is above the "tree line", otherwise known as Alpine Territory. Lake Placid is 1.5 hours to the north, site of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games, Gore Mountain, West Mountain, Vermont is 1 hour to the east, many French and Indian War Fortresses, caves and caverns to be explored, shopping, skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, biking, picnicing etc. etc. etc. Just call Otis311 and I and we will show you what it is really all about. Trust me, if you are like most, once you visit, you WILL NOT want to leave!
