I'm considering a move from NYC to one of these two cities in New England (and open to others if you have any to suggest) and thought to look on here for some guidance. They seem to also have good breathable air in general which is why they made the list.
The following questions came up during my research:
1. Which city is closest to the darkest skies? They both seem to be within driving distance to some of the darkest skies in the North England based on the maps I looked at, but which city is closest to sites that are convenient and accessible? Burlington is close to the Adirondacks which looks like a plus.
2. Which city is closest to public observatories? There are a bunch in NYS which are about 4 to 6 hours away from Burlington.
3. Which city is has an astronomy culture? The Amateur Astronomer's Association in NYC is pretty awesome. The skies are not however. :/
Thanks in advance.
