my boyfriend and i are debating a cross-town move that will decrease our rent slightly, but move us into a bigger apt but what i fear may be a food no-man's land.
we currently live in west chelsea, near 10th ave. and by tia pol, the cookshop, red cat, bette, etc. however, we are hoping to experience another, more affordable part of the city but continue to eat well (hopefully more take-out options and grocery stores?).
we are on the fence, and food plays a large role. should we move? will we regret leaving this delicious area? again, the ultimate goal is to save money, so if we have to walk north or south from near 20th and 1st, we're up for it. please advise!
