After relocating from the West Coast to New York City, I was surprised to find major banks on every street corner, but only very few credit unions. And of the few ones, many aren't even open to the general public - such as the "New York Times Employees Federal Credit Union", the "Actors Federal Credit Union" and so on.
I've had very positive experiences with credit unions and would like to continue doing business with them. Any insight into what's going on here? Did the big banks chase (no pun intended) the CUs away from their home territory? Can anyone recommend a good CU in the general NYC area?
