New York City is an exciting and vibrant city that over 8.4 million people call home. But you don’t have to live there to enjoy its many amenities. Tens of millions of people every year flock to NYC to partake in its many wonders. If you live there, you know that rent can be quite high compared to the rest of the country – the avg. rental price is $1,200/month with avg. home values reaching over $492,000. But ask any resident of NYC and they’ll tell you there is no better place to live. With entertaining Broadway and Off-Broadway plays, 6 major professional sports teams, a plethora of tasty food choices, and an electric night life, residents of New York City are quite happy with the premium they pay to live there.
As a visitor you have many lodging choices – from the swanky 5 star Waldorf Astoria to a more modest 2 star Econo Lodge Times Square, every budget size can find you a place to stay in New York City. And don’t forget, New York City is not just made up of Manhattan. There are 4 other boroughs – Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island – where you could find more affordable accommodations. While you’re there, don’t forget to check out some of NYC’s famous landmarks – the Statue of Liberty, The Empire State Building, and Times Square are some of the many sites of note that even longtime residents continue to visit time and time again. But with a population per square mile of over 27,000, just make sure you watch where you’re going as you enjoy this marvelous city.
