Administrator answers:

Sure,you can live there.
But Manhattan is not the best place to live,is very expensive,I live here,in Manhattan.
Now I say you the cheaper and safe places to live in NYC:Queens,where a lot of people,many many young people come here to spend less;Brooklyn,Park Slope is a neighborhood located in the west of Brooklyn, is located between 15th Street and Flatbush Avenue between Prospect Park West and 4th Avenue;
Lower East Side of Manhattan (between Canal Street and Houston Street and between the East River and Bowery);Sunnyside in Queens;Chinatown,Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill e Greenpoint

Me and my boyfriend plans on moving to Georgia?

Me any my boyfriend plan on getting married and we are from NYC and we want to move to Austell, Ga and we just want some advice on the moving. He works in retail for about 10 years and I am a medical assistant graduate. How can we make a smooth transition? To find a job? To find an apartment? Thank You

Administrator answers:

You would want to start by getting to much as possible about the City as you can. If you already know the city then you should search for jobs that suit your qualifications and check out the companys, get as much information on the company as you can…if they are within the distance you are willing to travel; go for it!

Then start looking for apartments. I like to give myself atleast a month or two, dedicated my packing, job searching and apartment searching. Also ensure to give the two weeks notice or whatever at your current job. Ditching is not cool…

Packing and doing it correctly plays a big role in making a smooth move. Organization is key. Labeling boxes and having enough boxes is also a good idea. Labeling also helps when unpacking when you reach your destination. Alot of times, I want to use any box I can find and even the ragedy ones will work but, that isn’t a very good idea. If you can buy nice new boxes(they are cheap…) then I would suggest to have new ones. They don’t rip or fall apart as easy….lots of tape to ensure they are securely sealed.

Keep track of all paperwork and receipts…in something labeled. Key items, birth certificates, ss cards…

Make sure that when you get there that you take time out for eachother. A move can be stressful and if you don’t have some fun when you get there, things can sometimes get a little stressful and you might just forget why it was you two went there in the first place…maybe even why you went there with THEM!…lol, it happens.

Take care and safe journeys.

The worst thing you can do is jump up and move your life somewhere and not know anything about anything when you get there. Do your research if you don’t already know about where it is your going. If fail to plan; you plan to FAIL!

Willing to walk around?
The Chinatown/ Little Italy area is a good place to start.
The Village is not the tourist trap it was.
The area around St Vincent’s hospital has some good neighborhood places .
The uptown “clubs” are a ripoff.
Tribeca, between the Village & the world trade center area has some nice places.
Hole in the wall ,sidestreet ‘neighborhood” restaurants ,cafe’s & bars in almost any part of town are a well kept NY secret.
One “secret place” I miss is “BeekmanTowers ” an apartment bldg off UN plaza w/ an open rooftop bar…. Not far from the hotel & might still be there .
That area is also good for the” hole in the wall” joints.where the locals who do not “split” on weekends hang out .
Far as I am concerned that is the real NY.
Ask your doorman or a cop.
Best regards.
