Most of you will be moving to a new home, often in a city or community away from Bard and away from the home where your parents live. This is a major decision and deserves considerable thought. New York City is wonderful, but may not be the place for you. Maybe Los Angeles is your dream, but another city might offer similar possibilities.

He looked at several cities (New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago and Seattle), and he considered whether the cities met his needs and could become a community he would call his own.
