Hello Babylon! Moving to your area and could use your advice
Posted December 7th, 2012 - 8:53 pm by from Brooklyn, United States (Permalink)
Hi all,

So my girlfriend and I are moving to Long Island this January. We know very little about LI (even though I had lived in BK for a few years). What is bringing us? Well, she is involved with a new non-for-profit charged with bringing mindfulness and meditation practices to Long Island schools. I'll be working in some restaurant or another and teaching writing in one of the colleges in NY.

We are planning to move to Babylon, as her job is in Islip and we are told Babylon is the best place for young people in the area.

We could use any help, advice, suggestions you may have to offer. Our turn around is going to be kind of quick: driving across the U.S and plan to be in LI by the 12th of January. We hope to find a place ASAP, but any help from the CS community would be helpful: a place to surf for a short stint, leads on sublets or apartments for rent, willing guides in our transition to the East Coast, etc...

Hope to hear from you and looking forward to meeting the Island,
