    Good Morning All,
    Have just joined the forum. I have a question about commuting out of manahttan.
    I have accepted a job in Melville, quite a way out of town i know. But my partner has already started a position in the Rockefeller university.
    so we will be living close to there.
    how is the drive out of manhattan on the weekday? is there overnight parking garages? or can you park on the street over night no worries in the upper east side.
    Coming over from the uk so all very exciting and cannot wait.

    Lots of info on this website so thanks everyone.

    Good day to all!!

    Try the Riverdale section of the Bronx: nice safe place to live. BTW, if you are in need of new window treatments for your new home, I highly recommend Blinds.com (lol)

    Smile NYC move in 18 months

    So Ive finally made up my mind to go ahead and make the move from Texas to NYC next year after I graduate college, Im gettin my degree in Healthcare Administration but have been working the last few years in the Insurance field and have alot of work experience with that not to mention my Property and Casualty Insurance License as well.

    So Im moving at the age of 25..Ive only been to NYC once but fell in love...and do plan to visit a few more times before next year, however im researching now on what areas to move to..I know Brooklyn or Queens is a good alternative to Manhattan but I also have found a lot of prices in my range of 1100-1300 in Washington Heights/Inwood area...is this a good bet??? Also I have been thinking about maybe securing an apt with a roomate to reduce my costs by about half to around 600-700 for room, but I dont where to quite look for this? Any suggestions???

    Lastly, does anyone know where to look for jobs in the Insurance field in NYC or is the insurance field there not that great for a living before I secure more lucrative employment in the Healthcare Administration field??

    Thanks,

    Chase

    For all the current residents of the New York City, one question eternally knocks are heads and i.e. how many people can New York accomodate? Well I came across this interesting piece of information and thought to share here. For somethings it is worth questionable while for others more moving in New York means more diversity and development. If you might want to read some more on that, you can take a look at

    The Lo Lo plan would be outrageously expensive and could create a whole new set of problems. The more probable option is that the zoning regulations will continue to be altered, to allow for additional mass for new buildings in certain parts of the city. Then we'll start to see towers that are interconnected way above the street level.

    The history of NYC shows that when things get crowded one good option is to build UP.

    Upper West Side vs. Upper East Side. What's the best zone to move into?

    It's definitely doable. In Alphabet City, Lower East Side or Chinatown, you can find apartments within that price range with relative ease. You may need to be willing to go up to $1200-1400, but especially in those areas, the cost of living is pretty low for Manhattan. Look into Stuy town, it's probably the nicest affordable neighborhood for you.
