Living in New York

New York is the USA’s most heavily populated city, and is the home of inspiration for a plethora of books, music, and Hollywood movies. Living in New York will give you a true  taste of awe inspiring diversity, culture and grandeur, making it such a preferable place to live.  New York has a wide range of career, culinary and entertainment options available, however unfortunately the cost of living is one of the most expensive in the world. When assessing the cost of property in New York, the average 2 bedroom apartment in Manhattan costs around $1 million (£705,450). Fortunately, salaries in the Big Apple are of the highest globally, so there is a balance. 

The climate in New York is temperate, however its position in the East makes it a vulnerable destination for storms and snowfalls. This would most definitely be something to consider if you are planning on moving to New York. New York is a great place to live if you are searching for new opportunities and a new way of life. There are also some great educational facilities across the area, making it a great city to raise a family.
