It’s unique. It’s big. It’s New York City. And if you’ve been thinking of making the move, I can’t recommend it enough. Even if you’re only planning on staying for a few months, living in NYC will change your life for the better, and open you up to groups of people you won’t find anywhere else in America. Pull the trigger and spend some time in this world capital, you won’t regret it.

10. You’ll quickly learn to multitask

Eat, walk, hail a cab, and talk on the phone at the same time. It’s all in a days work here.

 9. Pat Kiernan will become your new best friend

He’s been the morning news anchor on NY1 since ’97, and he’s awesome.

8. There’s always something to eat

Literally everywhere. Options, options, options. Unfortunately, this still won’t make it easier for you and your hubby to pick a spot.

7. You’ll get your degree in ‘Platforming’

It’s the art of knowing where on the train platform to stand to best get to your exit.

6. So you can see Times Square as a local

AKA never. Consider it haunted and never visit.

5. It’s the best sports city in America

End of story in my opinion. Some of the other Xome contributors disagree.

4. Central Park in the fall is gorgeous

All year, for that matter, but especially in the fall.

3. You can walk anywhere

It’s one of the best things about moving to New York. Make sure you buy some Dr. Scholls inserts.

2. There’s always a flight out if you want to visit home

It’s the best travel hub in the world pretty much. There’s also always a Taxi ready to drive you home when you get back.

1. Because variety is the spice of life.

Go to a different restaurant every day of the year, a different bar every day of the year, and meet people from all over the world. You’ll never be bored in New York.
