Biggest wasted opportunity in the USA - 8/9/2019
I moved to new york when I came to the USA from Dominican republic, and it took for my parents and me to move to FL to see how bad NYC is. I unfortunately find myself here again because in my line of work, it's a lot easier to find work in NYC and then transfer to a better place.

1. prohibitively expensive: obviously any city is gonna be more expensive than the surrounding area, but oh my god living here is expensive. housing is the biggest part of that, no doubt in big part to all the gov't regulations on rent control making it very risky to build here, which leads to my second problem:

2. oppressive, bloated ineffective government: NYC has to have the biggest, most overreaching state and local government in the country, besides maaaaaybe San Francisco. the burden of regulation is a big reason living here is so expensive, and it makes opening up a business unnecessarily difficult. basic american rights like firearm ownership are effectively nonexistent, and Read More

New York has many issues very expensive - 6/15/2018
New York has always been expensive but I think even the least expensive areas are around $1800 in Manhattan just for a studio apartment. City is very safe for a city this size but not safe like a small city or town. Public transportation is great but not cheap. Need a good paying job to live Read More

Hard to Find Affordable Housing - 2/25/2016
The New York City housing market is pricey and competitive. It is nearly impossible to find an apartment that rents for less than $1000 per month. As a result, many people share an apartment or rent a room. Room rental is a very common solution for the housing problem. Craigslist is widely used to bring tenants and landlords together. Read More

Manhattan is its own city now let's save the plane - 12/5/2015
You are misleading your readers by including Manhattan, New York in with New York City, in which you state that 8 counties are included with that one city ... Ummmm NO and the population for Manhattan is definitely not over 8 million people with a median household size of 2.6 or whatever. But they have done the same thing in Los Angeles (taken most but not all of the cities within the County of Los Angeles calling it one city (including the San Fernando Valley starting in Woodland Hills which now has matching signs to prove we are indeed Los Angeles with 4 million plus residents and bringing changing the median income, household size, etc ... Bringing the middle and rich down and the poor up. How can u compare for example a million dollar brownstone (owned apartment or townhouse in CA) in Manhattam to anything not in Manhattan or even to rent a place in the "city" costs 4K or more for a one bedroom. That's like in California grouping my 289k condo to whatever u would find in say Read More

NYC.. It has it all - 7/11/2015
Living in Manhattan my whole life and having traveled the wide world, i consider NYC to be the center of my universe. East to west, from lower Manhattan to half up the island at about 110th St, everything a person wants and needs in life can be found here, except a beach.
Culture, restaurants, parks and recreation, shopping, hospitals and health care, the 4 seasons, public transport , craziness and solitude, and a train , bus or ferry ride away from the other 4 boroughs that comprise the whole of NYC. It takes a lifetime or two just to see all of Manhatta ( as the Native Indians called it), referring to this "island of hills". Home of the knish, pizza slices, the pastrami on rye sandiwich, burgers, hot dogs, NY Yankees, NY Mets, NY Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, NY Rangers, NY Islanders, NY Giants and NY Jets...what else did i miss? 24/7 ..the city never sleeps but when you need to escape you eventually come home to Read More

Not as shiny, but avail 24/7 - 6/16/2015
The New York City transit system may not be the cleanest nor the newest, it is however available 24/7. With one fare, it can take you one stop away (shortest being 510 feet) to the longest ride (one line), 31 miles (covering three Read More

The best of times, the worst of times - 2/15/2015
Living in New York is has been literally the best of times and the worst of times. Yes, the rent is CRAZY high, for a teeny tiny space. Yes, the weather can be really crappy, and everything costs double what I am used to. The best of times, however, include being a few subway stops away from the best of pretty much everything imaginable. Museums, libraries, clubs, Broadway, shopping - it's all available here. If only I could afford to Read More
