In addition to the high cost of real estate (i.e. 100 year old homes, which sold for $70,000 in the early 1980's), are now valued at close to $1,000,000), there are other negative things which come into play. For example, the cost of auto insurance in Brooklyn, is very expensive, as are utilities. Parking, if it exists is a hassle, as there are probably twice as many cars on the roads now (or more), than existed 40-50 years ago. The old neighborhoods, as we knew them are no longer. I'm afraid that it would be very depressing to move back to Brooklyn, now, as it would not be the same, as it was, while growing up. I have all of the conveniences that I need where I'm living at now, and I like the peace and quiet at night.
