New York

A Local Perspective

New York NY
Whether you call it "The Big Apple", "The City That Never Sleeps", "Gotham" or plain old "New York, New York," there is no denying that NYC is one of the greatest cities in the entire world. Other cities have long since surpassed it in size, and yet for some reason, it is still the city against which all others are measured. It doesn't seem to matter what happens, New York remains in most eyes, the greatest city in the world.

New York has a true metropolitan population, with people from all over the globe making their home there. It is the center of the global financial markets. Broadway is home to what many consider the greatest shows on Earth, and the shopping is unrivalled. However you define a great city, the chances are that New York is a standout.

Finding a New York Apartment

When to search

The best time to look for apartments in New York City is usually in the dead of winter. The cold weather seems to also cool the apartment market, so landlords are more interested in making accommodations in order to get their suites filled. Look during January, February or March for the best results

Staying in the know

Getting an apartment in New York is tough. Almost every apartment you look at will have someone else interested in it, so you need to do everything you can to make your application stand out. If your applications aren't getting results on their own, consider hiring a broker to help you find a great place.

Life in New York


New York City is home to one of the greatest transit systems in the world. Very few people within the city choose to drive, unless they live in Staten Island, where car ownership is more common. If you live, work or study in any of the other four boroughs, your best option is to get a transit pass and avail yourself of the New York City subway system.

Where to play

Whatever your taste in entertainment, New York can provide it. Multiple teams in all the major sports leagues should satisfy even the most rabid sports fans. The theatre in the city is the envy of the arts world. In addition, if you're moving to the city for the first time, making the requisite pilgrimages to the various tourist attractions in the city such as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty can keep you occupied for some time.
