Moving from Cincinnati, OH, to New York, NY

Is Gotham calling you away from the Blue Chip City? 

Along with being one of the world’s top tourist destinations, New York City — by far the country’s most populous city — is also home to more than 8 million people. Are you ready to join them and find your slice of the Big Apple? Moving from Cincinnati may seem like a tall order, but it doesn’t have to be when you have the right help. Read on to discover some things that connect Cincinnati and NYC. Then, learn about a long-distance moving service designed to save you time and money. 

Finding your professional niche in the Big Apple 

Cincinnati and NYC each are home to multiple Fortune 500 companies. Top industries in New York include healthcare, education and finance, while transportation/warehousing is one of the fastest-growing sectors. If you work within Cincinnati’s extensive library system, there may be similar opportunities in NYC. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, New York is one of the top five states where librarians are in high demand. 

Remember that while NYC’s average income is well above the national average, so is the cost of living. NerdWallet reports that living in New York City costs 61% more than in Cincinnati. 

Sporting fun from the field to the court 

Are you passionate about the Cincinnati Reds? You can still catch them when they visit the Yankees or the Mets — and offer the fans in your section the friendly reminder that professional baseball began in Cincinnati in 1869. You can also cheer on the NFL’s Bengals when they’re in New Jersey to play the Giants or Jets.  

Are you invested in the Cincinnati-Xavier college basketball rivalry? Expand your hoops horizons! Head to St. John’s University in Queens to watch the Red Storm take on the NCAA’s top programs. If you follow Major League Soccer and FC Cincinnati, mark your schedule for when they come to New Jersey to face the New York Red Bulls. 

NYC landmarks inspired by Cincinnati prototypes 

If the Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State Building look familiar to you, it’s not happenstance. These New York City icons are modeled after Cincinnati’s Roebling Bridge (1867) and the Carew Tower (constructed between 1927 and 1931).  

Architect John A. Roebling designed both bridges with a stone tower and suspension cables. The two-lane Roebling Bridge in Cincinnati proved that suspension bridge technology was possible. It was the world’s longest bridge when it was first constructed — as was the Brooklyn Bridge, completed in 1883. 

Art Deco architecture is prevalent throughout both cities. Another example of similarity is the airport terminal at Cincinnati’s Lunken Field, dedicated in 1930, nine years before NYC’s LaGuardia Airport.
