As far as distance is concerned, Hamilton was the first drivable one for me since Boston. Indiana and Ohio would be within driving distance although much farther. I flew to Texas and Seattle but had to pass on Australia.
As for the possibility for a New York site, I'm looking at Saratoga Springs, not NYC. It is 4 hours from Boston and NYC, just a bit farther from Toronto and Montreal and less than an hour from Albany airport. I have no doubt of Barony approval, and have others willing to help. The area is beautiful and there is a college in town as well as the national dance museum which we are looking at using somehow.
