Make an adventure of moving from Los Angeles, CA to New York, NY

Are you taking the plunge and moving from Los Angeles, CA to New York, NY? Few people get the chance to experience two major cities in one lifetime. New York is a city that needs little explanation or marketing. Much like L.A., it simply sells itself. If you do make this long distance move to the other side of the country, expect to have an adventure like no other. New York is a whole new kind of eccentric and eclectic; so, get ready for a thrilling journey with this move.

Becoming a true New Yorker

When you move to the Big Apple, you’ll most definitely want to learn how to do life like the locals. To avoid looking like a tourist, locals suggest you steer clear of Times Square which is often considered a tourist trap. Also, be sure to pronounce Houston St. as House-Ton St. and not like the city in Texas. Locals of the City all learn to embrace the honking horns, jack hammers, and pedestrians and actually find it hard to embrace the quiet when leaving the city. Finally, enjoy the many meals provided to you by Seamless, an online ordering service that takes meal delivery to a whole new level. You’ll appreciate this service on rainy and snowy days for sure.

Understanding the city layout

Once you make the move from L.A. to New York, take some time to familiarize yourself with the city layout. First of all, the city sits on one of the largest natural harbors and consists of five boroughs – The Bronx, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. Each borough contains a variety of distinctive and unique neighborhoods each complete with their own subculture. Manhattan is the most densely populated with residents living in districts such as the Upper West Side, Midtown, and the Upper East Side. Brooklyn has grown significantly over the years and is quickly becoming a premier location to live in NYC.

Entertainment in the Big Apple

It’s no mystery that this city comes complete with great entertainment, something you’ve already been privy to in Los Angeles. Broadway is a must for all locals; so, don’t forget to check out what shows are running and catch as many as possible. Make your way to Fifth Ave. for a look at Museum Mile and the many wonderful art treasures awaiting you there. There are too many fabulous shops, restaurants, and activities to list, but one thing’s for certain, you’ll never run out of awesome places to venture to.

Don’t miss out on Central Park

New York City is most definitely defined by an array of concrete walkways and large buildings which means you’ll want to familiarize yourself with all things Central Park. The park will provide you the tranquil retreat you’ll need from the hectic city life. Central Park truly is the heart of NYC and offers residents activities like movies and concerts in the park year round. There really is nothing like Central Park in the spring when the trees and lilacs bloom to their ultimate beauty. This is one place where you’ll find yourself spending lots of quality time.
