So, since some people have actually bothered reading my previous posts, I figured I'd post a summary of how I've felt my first year in New York - and first year in America for that matter - unfold.
New York City
I love it. I've moved around a lot before, but no place I've been really sums up "city life" in the same way NYC does. As people have probably figured out by my forum posts, I feel most at home on Manhattan, below 90th street. I don't really know why
After 4 days at a hotel I was finally allowed into my apartment, and it's great. Well, no river view, but otherwise pretty nice - got a view of the new Goldman Sachs building if that can be called a view. And some skyline until the Milstein towers come up, all in all pretty good.
Kinda weird to see it furnished though... When I went shopping furniture I looked at the list and was wondering how the heck I could fit everything in my apartment - turns out my apartment was bigger than I
Figured I'd throw in a little post here, I'm sure there could be others in a similar situation looking for some advice....
First of all, I'm from Norway and I moved to the US, more specifically New York to attend law school; thus I'm on a student visa. For anyone looking to make the move to the US know that getting a student visa is infinitely easier than getting a working visa. I won't linger more over that, but do your research if you really want to move.
