New York may be a great destination for those interested in urban life.

If you are a big fan of busy city life, then instructing your moving company to bring your belongings to New York City may be a good choice. The largest city in the country has just about everything a fan of urban settings could hope for.

The Big Apple has more than 8.2 million people, all of whom are spread across the city's five boroughs: Brooklyn, Staten Island, Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx. Each area offers different things, with Manhattan being the financial center of the city.

Manhattan has such tourist attractions as Times Square, Central Park and several skyscrapers that are some of the largest in the country. With such a vast city, there are so many different landscapes and options to choose from. There are many beaches in Brooklyn and Queens, and the city provides one of the largest subway systems in the world to get you to wherever you need to be.

Education is a staple in the city, whether it is the countless public and private elementary and high schools, as well as several universities. Columbia University, Fordham University, New York University and St. John's University are just some of the many public and private options available.

Theaters and stadiums abound in New York
Arts and entertainment options are numerous in the city. Whether someone wants a night out at the Radio City Music Hall or at the famous Apollo Theater, there are always choices. If you prefer classical music, take your pick. The New York Philharmonic Orchestra are just one of the dozens of options you could have to choose from every week.

New York is a sports city as much as it is a center for arts and entertainment. The area has two baseball franchises - the Mets and the Yankees - as well as two hockey teams - the Rangers and Islanders. Both the Knicks and the Nets of the National Basketball Association reside in the city, while there are many other teams nearby. For football fans, the Giants and Jets play in East Rutherford, New Jersey, which is just a short drive away. Additionally, the National Hockey League's Devils play in Newark.
