I have a family of 11 and coming from NY (upstate, not the city). It seems cost of living is high in Hamilton. Are there surrounding towns that would be more affordable?
Matt on Mar 03, 2018:
This is great....but an actual date/year of when these prices were gathered would be great, as cost of living increases every year.
