Moving from Indianapolis, IN to New York, NY

From The Circle City To The Big Apple: Are You Ready To Take A Bite?

New York City has inspired more people in more ways than arguably anyplace else in the world. What magic does New York hold for you? For Indianapolis native David Letterman, New York was the place where he became a television legend and a late-night staple for 30 years.

Don’t worry; you don’t have to become the next Letterman to enjoy living in the City of Dreams. If you’re moving from Indianapolis to New York, the two share enough in common for you to find your happy place!

A Passion for Sports

Sports fans moving from Indianapolis should feel right at home in New York. The Indy 500 is the largest-attended sporting event in the U.S., while the NFL’s Colts and the NCAA Tournament are big draws. What does New York offer in the sports realm? The multi-purpose Madison Square Garden, home to the NBA’s Knicks, the NHL’s Rangers and St. John’s University basketball, is nicknamed “The World’s Most Famous Arena.” The New York City Marathon is the world’s largest. Queens hosts the U.S. Open, one of four tennis Grand Slam tournaments each year. New York is one of four metropolitan areas to have two major league baseball teams. It’s also home to two franchises each in the NFL, NBA and NHL.


Indianapolis and New York City, located 700 miles apart, share similar weather patterns. Between cold winters and humid summers, residents of both cities enjoy pleasant spring and fall seasons. 

Arts and Leisure

If you enjoy Indianapolis’ Central Canal, New York’s 843-acre Central Park will more than fill the void. New York’s world-famous monuments, museums and live theater offerings provide endless opportunities to soak up culture.

Getting Around

Having a car in New York City can be nice, but challenging because of traffic congestion and limited parking. New Yorkers rely heavily on walking and an extensive public transportation system to navigate the country’s largest metro area.
