We have CNN, Coca-Cola World Headquarters, The Weather Channel, and many many other Fortune 500 companies. The job rate is about the same across the board nationwide. The crime rate is "not so great" in the city...but the suburbs are perfectly safe. I'm sure the same can be said about any major city!
I would say the only "downside" to Atlanta is the traffic...but you do get used to it and plan accordingly!
I live in East Cobb (a part of Marietta) and we have the top rated schools in the country. Our schools offer a public education on a private education level. The schools have been recognized not only on an academic level but in sports, bands, chorus and more!

You'll also find tons of reading materials about Dallas and Texas in links on my web site to the various local news sources: http://www.richpatterson.net/community.aspx#News

I hope those links help. Best wishes to you and your husband on your journey. BTW: You'll also find many other folks from NY here in North Texas. Be sure to let us know when you're ready to shop for a home or condo. The market is showing a lot of activity lately.
I may be a little prejudice, being born and raised in Dallas, but this is a great city both economically and quality of life. We are a friendly city with much to offer from recreation to the arts, there is a niche for everyone. The other good point is that we are close to an international airport and can be almost any where in the country within 3-4 hours. Donâ€™t be asking me for beach front or mountain views!
My website is loaded with useful information about the Dallas area and I offer a Relocation Guide that provides even more information. It would be my pleasure to share that with you. You will find a sample of it on my website under Relocationn.
Visiting our fair city is the best choice and you will see for yourself what we have to offer.Let me know how I can best assist you in your decision.
