Do you feel confined in your boring suburb life? Well you should try moving to New York. Do
you crave more adventure from the listening city? Or are you looking to advance your career?
Whether you want to a stock broker or a Broadway star, New York is the place for you. If you
have already made to decision about moving to New York, congratulations! Now is the hard
part; trying to figure out how you are actually going to make the transition. Here are a few
tips to making sure your move to New York is as seamless as possible.
Moving to New York
1. Have a job lined up. Moving to New York is very expensive and you don't want money issues
to get in the way of your big dreams. If you are going to New York to find a career but
don't yet have a job a good an idea would be to apply with a temp agency. Temp agencies will
display their listings in the Sunday edition of The New York Times every week. These
agencies also have branches in other cities so you can find one that is close to you and
have something lined up before your move.
2. Arrange to have a long term place to stay. Finding a place on your own may be difficult
at first. Finding a roommate may be easier on your move and your wallet. If you don't
already know someone you can bunk with when you first arrive you can try looking on
Craigslist for open apartments and rooms for rent.
3. When you are ready to move out on your own make sure to do your research. If you want to
stay in the city the Yorkville area may be much more affordable than the downtown area. You
can also find decently priced places in areas such as Hudson Heights, East Harlem, Harlem,
4. If you want to consider living outside of Manhattan there are plenty of great places
where rents are much less expensive. Queens and Brooklyn are great places to live. Also New
Jersey is just a short train right away. South Bronx is also an up and coming area that is
drawing more bohemian artist types that are trying to escape the incredibly high rents of
the city. All of these would be very accessible to the big city and also offers charms of
their own. Remember moving to New York can be hard work but in the long term it is well
worth the effort!
