The land of opportunity not quality - 12/14/2020
Born and raised in queens. if you don’t know how to hustle and aren’t prepared to work multiple jobs/multiple incomes you won’t do well in NY. Unless you’re a doctor or something, This is a dog eat dog city. As awful as that sounds that’s what makes NYC so great. The natural average resident understands that. Frank Sinatra saying if you can make it here you can make it anywhere is absolutely fact. The food options are amazing as it’s one of the most diverse places on earth. I want to move as I’m done with it to be honest. I want a nice house, vegetables and other things that come with quality of life. Quality of life in NY is based on how smooth your commute time is and if you can avoid paying tolls. Too expensive for young people like me even on a good salary. I would have left years ago if it wasn’t for my family. It gets a 2 for food and family for Read More

NYC Both Good & Bad - 2/22/2020
I was born & raised in NYC. During the time I grew up there is was a GREAT place to live & grow up. However, over the years it changed.

It is expensive to live, but so are a lot of other places with far less to offer. NYC has so much to do it is nearly impossible to be bored unless you are broke. There is seemingly nothing that you can't get there. Transportation is plentiful and affordable. If you don't think so, try living some place like NC or Baltimore. While Baltimore has a train & bus system it is not comprehensive at all.

NYC is quite crowded, but for some that is the attraction. People draw energy from other people so this is what makes NYC so electric!! If you are not a people person or you have a phobia of crowds then I suppose NYC is not for you.

The NYC public school system sucked out loud as I can recall which is why in 1997 my ex-husband and I decided to leave with our 3 kids. That was 23 years ago, so I am uncertain what it is Read More

Save yourself, visit maybe but don't live. - 1/19/2020
I've lived here for the past 20 years, NY has not changed, the minor changes are things for attractions for tourists nothing has been done for the people living here. Crime is still crazy, Housing/living is a major scam, New York is a dream killer, not a maker. Read More

new pork city - 12/21/2019
NY's always been rubbish. It was rubbish 30 years ago, and it;s rubbish now. I am not a huge fan of NY or it's surrounding suburbs. It's where being mean is the norm. If someone's nice to you, you start asking yourself, why's this person being nice. Does he have an alterior motive? It;s like the worst people from all over the world all decided they would move to NY. The people of NY are what makes the area so bad. New Yorkers are a bunch of savages. I injured my foot once, and took the elevator in the subway, and a crazed New Yorker with a heavy New York accent was harasing me about not being old or in a wheel chair. Aparently to them, only permanently disabled, or seniors can take the elevator. Another crazed New Yorker kept banging on the door of the bathroom in a medical building. And when I didn't open the door for him, he became very triggered. My first impression of New Yorkers is that they are greedy, and selfish. Not all, but that's the impression they give me when compared Read More

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
