Moving to New York can be a big change, at least it was for me. Every so often I would like to share with you some tips that I wish someone had told me when I first moved to the city.
I live in a walk up. On the fourth floor of a walk up to be precise. There have been many days where I look out my window and it doesn't look like its raining, yet as soon as I walk down the four flights of stairs and open the front door, I discover its raining and have to run back up and down four flights to fetch my umbrella.
2. Invest in An Umbrella
Sure, on rainy days there will be street peddlers that seem to appear out of nowhere to sell umbrellas. These are great in a real pinch, but will most likely not last for more than that storm. So I always try to carry an umbrella in my bag just in case.one in a different color and have been very pleased with it. Plus it was pretty affordable. It gets very windy on some streets in New York, the buildings create quite the wind tunnels, so its important to have an umbrella that can withstand the rain and the wind!
3. New Yorkers love Fireworks
Next week, I will discuss some tips to make commuting on the subway a little easier.
Hope these help!
