Moving from KCK to NYC? Prepare for big changes 

Moving from KCK (as the locals call it) to NYC is the start of an exciting adventure! But it can also feel like a different world. Learn how to find your comfort zone while navigating the change of scenery. And see why moving with U-Pack® may make sense for you.

Combat Sticker Shock

Newcomers, beware: New York City will wallop your wallet. From housing to groceries and entertainment, it’s by far the most expensive city in the U.S. As a resident of slower-paced KCK (population 153,000), you’re just 3 miles away from neighboring Kansas City, MO, a thriving metropolis of almost 500,000. That means a more affordable cost of living with easy access to all the big-city amenities — you get the best of both worlds.
Looking to save on housing when you move to NYC? Consider a similar tactic — live near the city, not in it. Many locals opt for neighboring New Jersey or Connecticut (or on Long Island) and commute.

Remember To Breathe

New York City leads the nation in population density and is abuzz with activity 24/7. It’s easy for newcomers to feel overwhelmed in a sea of 8.6 million people sharing such a small space. When you’re longing for the more relaxed vibe of KCK, escape to these eight peaceful NYC havens:

  • New York Public Library, Fifth Avenue Branch
  • Elevated Acre, Lower Manhattan
  • Cloisters, Upper Manhattan
  • EAT Restaurant, Greenpoint
  • Burp Castle, East Village
  • Gantry Plaza State Park, Long Island City
  • Inwood Hill Park, Manhattan
  • Coney Island in the winter

Miss That? Try This!

Replace the following KCK favorites with these NYC alternatives:\

Watching the Kansas City T-Bones play baseball — Move up from the minor leagues to the big show! Catch the Bronx Bombers at Yankee Stadium. 

Kansas City barbecue — Dig into a delicious pastrami sandwich from legendary Katz’s Delicatessen. 

Historic neighborhoods — If you love KCK’s Strawberry Hill, NYC has 139 historic districts and district extensions to explore. Among them: Greenwich Village, Jackson Heights and Sugar Hill. 

Schlitterbahn Waterpark — Cool off on a hot summer day at Luna Park in Coney Island.
