Congratulations! You have taken the first step into morphing into Noo-Joy-Z North ...

When I crossed the Mass line into NH yesterday, I thought I had a major mind melt and somehow driven back south.

All of the condos hanging off the hillsided and the skyline dotted with new vinyl wrapped development houses.

Yeah ... I know the reasons that go back to the high Mass taxes and all that ... it was just sad to see it happening to you.

Southern NH is becoming a suburb of Boston whether we like it or not. It probably helps our state property tax revenue to have all this crap popping up but I agree that every cookie cutter development is an eyesore.

I don't understand why people will spend so much money on a relatively nice house but tolerate a jam packed development with identical houses on 3 sides, no yard space, and no trees. These places have zero character, maybe reflecting the personalities of the occupants?

I'm bitter

NH is a Libertarian state. Live Free or Die.

This attitude leads to places like North Conway, a beautiful location for strip malls. "Wow, this is beautiful. Let's pave it!!"

Because they obviously only exist in Nh:

When people say to me that they can't/won't live in an inner city (which I do), yet will live in the suburbs with a development like you described - I don't get it.....

Oh come on now don't you realize NH really starts north of Concord, everything south especially as it borders around Rte 3 and Rte 93 is just northern Mass. The kicker is that alot of those people work in Mass and have to end up paying some income tax to Mass for the priviledge to work there. I always thought to get the benefit of NH you must live and work in the state and buy a quite a few big ticket items (no sales tax too).

All of the people that got sick of Massachusetts moved up to NH that is why NH is becoming like that. Also why NH was the only stave to vote republican in the 2000 elections then to vote democrat in the 2004 elections.

Too many people live in thier houses. Meaning, they build the big fancy house, but never leave it, except to go to school, work, shopping. Some can't afford to do much, because they can barely afford the damn house.

We here in northern NH or Vt need your money. We finally figured out that the best way to get you folks to come on up is to sacrifice a small corner of the White Mtns and the town of Manchester, Vt. and make it like back home i.e. traffic gridlock, chain stores, strip malls, ugly developments and McDonalds. Kinda like flypaper with a cash draw. Apparently it's working. :

And therein, lies the danger. Just talk to any NJ resident about taxes. They will start with mandated court orders to build new schools and affordable housing for equal opportunity (Abbott v Brurke & Mt. Laurel decisions). My taxes will rise to probably about $15K from the $10K they are now and many of us (self included), have to move because retirement won't cover that kind of cost of living. The "migration" from NYC that started here and saturated the state in the 70's .....

It's sounds like it's marching north ..... I feel for ya' ...

Well the reverse can also be true .

Here in the Northernmost region of NYS, between the" Dacks and the 1000 islands region of the St Lawrence river we have BEAUTIFUL scenery and of the damn politicians have created a penal colony more akin to French Guiana . AS a result The crime rate and social cost from that move is a serious problem here in GOD's country

Now in addition to an unbelievable number of prisons they soon to be ex Gov Pataki are sticking a "facility" for SEXUAL VIOLENT PREDATORS --think Ted Bundy or as they are called the worst of the worst. BTW at a cost 4 times --yep FOUR times MORE expensive than what is being done in NJ or Mass with these predators 240 K/yr vs 60K/yr-- and the court of Appeals just told them its illegal but still they move forward withan ill-conceived oplan when teh answer is longer sentences.

Unfortunately our taxes have risen disproportionately my home 2000sq Ft 100yrs old cost me more in property tax than my daughter's McMansion in Middesex county Mass --go figure

Damn stupid politics

The ol' expressunn .... "pay me now, or pay me later" ......

You in the north will (like in NYS), will start footing the bill for the increased demands in services. With the industrial base in the tank and the tourist economy (ski included), possibly on the decline with the rising fuel costs where is the money going to come from.

Warp daddy, Gubbnerr Patki is looking out for your bests interests. Wake up and smell the coffee will ya' .. !! :

He didn't give you a prison, he gave your region an employment package! Not a bad job with good pay and retirement after "20 and out", if you can stand working with the scum of the earth all day, getting spit at and called names you didn't even know existed.

Bound to happen - the northern NJ border is now Rte 4 in VT.

Condos in southern NH? Ever see the raping of the face of Okemo? THAT's sad.
