Benefits of Living in New York

Moving to New York can be a daunting prospect for many people across the country. That being said, the journey will probably be a lot smoother for citizens coming in from New Jersey. Aside from a plethora of cultural similarities, New York is only about an hour away by car! Beautiful beaches and landscapes are just two things the two states share. Here are a few things to know about your move to New York.


The Scenery

One would be unable to take in everything New York has to offer in a single year. Being one of the cultural wellsprings of the United States, its central city housed over 37 million tourists in 2018. From lights to ocean views, the state welcomes people from all over the world! One of the things that make New York so magical is that it’s the melting pot of America. The area doesn’t just present visitors with its own essence, but continues to welcome many others! Because of this, it always changes, presenting residents with a new adventure every day.


The Weather

There won’t be much of a change in this category because of the insignificant length between the two regions. However, you do experience the four seasons in a different way. There is nothing like walking through Central Park during the fall or gathering for New Year’s Eve with everyone in New York City. The Winter season in New York is also enchanting during the holidays!


Things to See

Earlier, we discussed how there is almost an unlimited amount of things to experience in a metropolis like New York. Coming from New Jersey, many people have already taken field trips to the sites as children, or have traveled there for a romantic getaway with a loved one. That aside, there are a bunch of things to see for newcomers!

Built in 1886, the Statue of Liberty is a must-see for anyone who is planning on moving to the big apple. One of the most fascinating parts about this landmark is that the statue was a gift from France, and is now one of the first things anyone thinks about when discussing the United States of America. While on that little excursion, check out Ellis Island‘s Immigration Museum, where you can learn about the millions of Americans that struggled to start a new life away from a faraway land! It’s truly a sight to behold.

Again, when most people think about the U.S., they think about New York hotspots. The Empire State Building is an architectural marvel that everyone needs to visit. This monolithic structure is 102 stories tall, with two observatories that provide absolutely breathtaking views. One should be aware of the wait to enter the building though! Remember that everything is first-come, first-serve!

Another must-see is the Grand Central Terminal.. or Grand Central Station. Almost every iconic film taking place in New York has a scene that takes place in this commercial crown jewel. There is just so much to see when you visit, but these are a few areas that anyone should check out during their first or second time in this beautiful state!


The Culture

New Jersey is an amazing state, but New York can really be defined as a cultural cornucopia. Aside from New Years’, Times Square is a haven for many nationalities and creeds. If you take a stroll through the area, you will smell foods from all over the world, or hear languages that you might not even recognize! Every American should take the time, at some point in their lives, to take in everything this area has to offer.

Another stop one should make is the theatrical capital of Broadway. Festooned with music, lights, and countless spectacles, this is the closest you can get to Hollywood glamor on the East Coast! If one has the time, check out one of their captivating plays, or simply soak in the lively essence of this beloved theater district. If you’re interested in seeing one of the popular shows, make sure you order tickets in advance! For decades, aspiring actors and stage performers have made enormous strides for the chance to perform in such a magnetic atmosphere.

If silence and inquiry are more your speed, try taking a look at the New York Public Library. Their main lobby takes up about two blocks alone! Or, if one is searching for spiritually inspired beauty, visit the New York St. Patrick’s Cathedral; a Gothic Revival that makes some genuinely weep over the stunning two-hundred-million dollar revelation made 4 years ago.

The cultural landmarks alone will keep visitors busy for years. That is no exaggeration. Hopefully, you have a magical experience in one of America’s most glorified states!

A Few Things to Remember

The Initial Transition

This will be a much easier process than traveling to the West Coast. For one, you don’t have to worry about purchasing new furniture! Excluding transportation fees, there is much to be saved in the resource department. Just remember to set up a budget in preparation for the journey.

Other Costs

As it was previously stated, New York is a rather expensive place with the cost of living being about 80.4% higher than the national average. According to a cost of living index, prices continue to rise in denser areas of the five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island. Another thing to worry about is the potential Broker’s Fee if you’re getting a new apartment. This cost is normally about 10-15% of the annual payments for the rented space.

Just Some Tips

A move from New Jersey to New York should be amazing, but there are a few tips and tricks to carry with you:

  • You may have to get rid of your car. Parking is a hassle, and public transportation is the default mode of transportation for the general populace.
  • Beware of taxi prices. They are notoriously expensive, and the traffic does not help the rates. Just try to use them wisely!
  • Don’t walk everywhere. It can be easy to get lost in big cities. Plus it may be dangerous at night. Embrace public transit systems whenever you can.
  • Don’t feel obligated to stick to familiar foods! New York has amazing food that comes in from all over the world, so take the chance to explore!
  • Take the time to assimilate. Many people say that it takes a while for people to get used to the changes, but eventually, you fall in love with the environment!

Good luck on your next great adventure!
