Livability: This is how life changes when you move from the city to the country

Thinking of leaving the city because it’s too expensive? Interested in moving to a small town or rural area? As part of our Cost of Living Diaries series, we got all the details from a woman who did just that!

Name: Isabella

Age: 35

Job in D.C.: Federal government policy analyst

Job in rural New York: After two years of trying out different things, I’m back at my D.C. job, mostly working from home.

Rent in D.C.: $1,850 monthly rent, plus utilities for an 800 square-foot, one-bedroom apartment. It wasn’t in the best shape, but it had a lot of character.
