    I'm a NY transplant too. Unfortunately we seem to be in the minority that are pro 2A. I've only been here 5 years. I didn't come here to change PA to be more like NY. I want it to at least stay the way it is or ideally, be more conservative as it used to be. My family is the same way.

    I built a home on 5 acres in saylorsburg in 1987.

    taxes at the time all in were $980

    in the early '90s all the transplants moved in and they built schools like crazy and the taxes went crazy too

    now some of those new schools are no longer in operation because people stopped moving there because the tax bill on many properties is higher than the mortgage payments

    a few years ago I ran into an old neighbor and he said the taxes on my old place are over $11,000 and if the current occupant didn't have parental help he'd probably have to sell

    For starters... avoid anything blue on this map from 2020 election (Monroe is blue)

    I'm considering it based on feedback so far. My family will take my advice. Seems like Palmerton PA is right at 2 hours from NYC and 1.5 from me. Any suggestions around there? Thank you

    Palmerton used to have a huge zinc smelter West of town. Be aware of soil metals content in that area.

    however, check the superfund site since mitigation has been ongoing forever and reuse assessments are underway for many sites

    Honestly, I think your defined terms are somewhat self-defeating. Most any place within 2 hours of NYC (i.e. effectively at most 1 hour into PA) is gonna have a goodly share of what you don't want. Carbon County may be among your best bets within that zone, but even if you find a little corner in that 2-hour-radius that's still sensible... how long will that last? 5 years? Cancer spreads.

    1987 mine were 1300 approx in PV school district and that's county, township and school. They are still under 3K. Way cheaper than Northampton or Bucks.
    Just slightly below the US inflation rate.

    Hit me up with that old address and I'll check the assessment and tax records. Unless you never pulled a permit and were paying on undeveloped land and the new owner got caught in the reassessment I can't see that rate.
