You may have already checked this out but if not, it might be worth a look:

Jacksonville, Florida (FL) profile: population, maps, real estate, averages, homes, statistics, relocation, travel, jobs, hospitals, schools, crime, moving, houses, news, sex offenders

Good luck with your decision.

According to's cost of living calculator, Jacksonville Florida is ~ 20% cheaper than New Haven CT.

If you move outside the city (to Yulee for instance) then it gets a bit cheaper in general. Traffic was pretty decent when I lived north of Jax (moved up here 8 years ago). Any specific questions you have about the area?
