Administrator answers:

Trust me you don’t want to move to NYC. I live here(was born and raised here) and it is way too expensive. I can’t wait to move. Don’t get me wrong I love NY but, a decent 1 bedroom apartment can go anywhere from (at least) $1200-$2000+, and studio apartments start at about $900+. And then you have to factor in utilities-electric, gas, cable/satellite, phone, renters insurance(very highly suggested-especially in NYC) and that varies from company to company. On top of that finding a good paying job is difficult, the amount you could get paid will most likely not cover your utilities, rent and food expenses. You would have to have a roommate at the least.

But if that is what you want to do-good luck to you.
You would need alot of money saved up.
