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.

Wow it's still expensive to live on central Hamilton mountain. Wages need to start matching cost of living. The city is becoming dirty. Where are our taxes going ? Wake up people.
