We're looking for a future place to retire, it's not right around the corner but closer rather than further.

We currently live in central NY. Outside of liberal NYC the rest of the state is pretty moderate to conservative. We live here because of our jobs but don't want to support the state any longer when we retire.

From what we've read Tn looks to be the state that would be a good fit for us, however I've also read that some places are pretty unwelcoming, or fake welcoming, to anyone from the north.

Just wondering what the atmosphere is in Johnson City.

Despite the number of people viewing the forum, there hasn't been a single reply to my question. That's ok, sometimes silence says a lot.

I have my answer and thank you, we'll look elsewhere.

If you are that impatient that no one has responded to your post in one hour, I'm thinking you better stay in New York! You wouldn't enjoy the relaxed and laid back attitude that we southerners cherish. Yes this is a wonderful place to live with low taxes, less crime, less traffic and beautiful mountain scenery! My neighbors are transplants from Chicago who are in their eighties and have been here about 15 years. They wished they had moved here earlier! It's your choice, but I think it's a good idea to check everything before you move. And good luck Ya'll!

I guess if you're a representative of the area I definitely don't want to live there. You are neither laid back nor relaxed. Judging by the posting name you used it just to attack me. Chill out. Really?

I actually wasn't criticizing anyone at all, simply stating that I had my answer. Nothing wrong with that answer, just that I had it. I looked for an active forum to post. There have been many posts since mine, and at any given time many viewers. Do I think I'm special like you say? No. Do I think I deserve special treatment like you imply? No. Impatient is something I've never been called, I have however been called out for being to patient and understanding. I don't want to hear it anymore, I live and let live, or want to.

I live in a small conservative town, we don't tell people to chill out, I don't want to move to a place where I won't have that same feeling of belonging. Nor do I want to move someplace where people from NY are hated, we sadly are all judged based on NYC.

I want to leave the nastiness,not retire to it. So maybe you should "chill out". Y'all.

I didn't know telling someone to chill out was considered derogatory. Seems like they were stating the obvious about your impatience and paranoia over feeling ignored. You probably do need to stay in your small conservative town where you feel special! But you stated you wanted to leave the nastiness, so where you live must not be that great if you are inquiring on random topix forums! I doubt you are going to be happy anywhere, so please stay away from East Tennessee! BTW it's "too" patient, not "to" patient!
Chill out next time before you post and you will make less errors! Bye Ya'll

Bad hair day? Wow so much to say from someone that doesn't even live in that state, way to go. It appears you search out anything to reply in a nasty way, ok I'll play, sucks to be you. But hey, kudos for pointing out on an Internet forum with auto correct the difference between to and too, shall we talk about me and I?

Yup live in a very friendly town, where you aren't welcome. That appears to be your problem and why you immaturely attack everyone. Want a buck to buy a clue?

And posting As geez touchy. I don't want to touch you, but you sure are miserable trying to say that I am. Adult conversation is a lost art.
I thought I was posting an adult question on an adult forum and welcomed adult conversation. The replies are from chill out and it appears his bf geez touchy. Both attacking, nasty, and childish. Ok Steel Magnolias, you both post just how sweet you are by being exceptionally nasty.

Probably a better place to retire to than to be from in many ways. Milder climate than most northern locales. Lots of restauarnts, lodging, universities and colleges, VA facilities, and other medical care. Half the MD's that graduate from the local Med school stay in the area. Lots of touristy things to do for retirees. Everything form lakes and mountains to fishing and crafts. I would say come on down.(bring your pension too and help our economy)

Also because of our jobs we could relocate. It's a scary thought because of the economy and right now a secure job is best, so since we don't have the security of our moms basement we stay put. In better times things would be different.

Storytellerman, I thank you so much for your reply. It didn't really address my concern but I don't see that as a fault with your reply at all. I think you were trying to cover everything that JC has as a plus and not my specific concern. Easy to do in a forum reply.

However, based on the two very nasty previous replies ,and I do release there were only two neither living there, no one except you defended your city, or replied as adults. I talked to my husband and I'm sorry to say that we will not be moving there. Silence really does speak volumes.

Seems like this thread got a little out of hand.:) all I can say is I've lived in the tri-cities area my entire life, and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. But some can be a little hostile to northerners. My ex was originally from Long Island, & sometimes when he was talking he would get loud & obnoxious. I don't believe this was in purpose. That was just his way of doing things. So that was a put off. I would say that we are just very laid back, so any other behavior can come off as offensive. Am I making sense? Just remember, we were taught to respect others, until we feel you don't deserve that respect anymore. The south is beautiful. There is no war between the 2.:)

P.S. There are assh**** no matter where you go, but if you come in thinking everyone hates you; they just might. I firmly think that positive thinking gets positive results. The same is said for negativity.

Hi miss Kay, your husband is from LI and you say southerners at first thought he was loud and obnoxious, clumping all NY into the same boat and while I do appreciate you saying "out of control" its a few replies, not on my part nasty. So while you try to say, oh northerners are misunderstood, rude is rude, and you can wave your hankies but its not an excuse.

Look at the replies, seriously,

For your own safety, stay out of East Tennessee. Your bad attitude and East TN gun laws won't mix!

It's hard to tell a persons intention when it's text. You may not have meant to, but sounded rude. As did others. But i was trying to answer your question. I meant everything in the nicest possible way, but apparently didn't come across that way to you.

I understood and you were being nice and tried to answer her questions with your experiences. Seriously, what kind of nut job looks for a place to live on Topix! Then is insulted that no one responded to her demands in a timely fashion! Wonder what lucky place she is inquiring about today? Maybe Knoxvegas?
