Live in the country AND the city (read all 3 entries…)
The ideal goal

is to have a place upstate to go to on weekends and work/live in the city during the week.

OR live full-time in a quiet place within commuting distance.

We are not alone

The problem with living in a quiet place within commuting distance is that pretty soon a lot of people will be living with you in the quiet place, which leads to a traffic problem during the commute.

Good point

It’s true. I can’t imagine driving in rush hour traffic. I hope not to commute by automobile – I would like to find a place accessible by train (Metro North). I know that even that can get rough, but my commute at present is approx 45 min, 3 subway transfers (on jam-packed standing-room-only subways) from Brooklyn to Manhattan. I would make a lateral move, commute-wise, if it meant being around trees and quietude more often.

Let me know if you hear of anything. :) (What’s your commute like?)

Ah, yes, I forgot that you lived in an organized part of the world, with trains and stuff.

My daily commute is a 20-minute walk or a five-minute cycle from my flat to my lab. On Fridays I drive 45 minutes to Bronkhorstspruit, a small town outside Pretoria city where I spend the weekend.

20 minute walk, 5 minute cycle

Sounds perfect!
Yes, NYC is organized chaos. Just out of curiosity, if you don’t mind, why do you spend weekends in another place? Is your weekday place just for work and the other your quiet escape? Or is it a family home?

I like to tell people that I live in Bronkhorstspruit (where my family is) but that I have a place to sleep in Pretoria (where I study full-time.)
