A Guide to Living in New York

Last updated 5 years ago

Whether you have recently moved to New York City or are relocating between boroughs, you know firsthand how steep the cost of living and real estate can be. You deserve a moving company that provides affordable moving services and trustworthy storage facilities. Contact the trusted movers at locally owned and operated Men on the Move today, and prepare yourself for your new life with this helpful guide to New York.

Finding an Apartment
Before you make your move, try to save as much money as you can to avoid having to scramble to find a stable job or safe place to live. Next, prepare yourself for the fact that finding a Manhattan, Brooklyn, or even Long Island apartment is a second job in itself. Approach your move with realistic expectations, and consider reaching out to friends and family for a cheap or free place to stay as you search for your own space. As you apartment hunt, keep your pricey furniture and personal items safe in self-storage.   

Stretching Your Budget
When you find the apartment of your dreams, be sure to ask your moving company for an estimate of any moving and storage costs so that you aren’t surprised by a high bill later on. If you are like many New Yorkers who are facing dwindling bank accounts, review locals’ tips for saving money in the city. Many first-time New York residents opt to take an extra part-time weekend job, eat at home instead of dining out, and choose water instead of alcoholic beverages at bars. 

Making Connections
Finally, being successful in New York is all about making and cultivating personal and professional connections. If you are an aspiring actor, artist, or dancer, ask your fellow performers for tips on how to save money on headshots, reels, and classes.
