New York City is frequently called one of the greatest cities in the world. And it’s for a very good reason, that’s for certain.
The Big Apple has a vibe all it’s own, and so do each of its neighborhoods and boroughs. In addition, NYC attracts people from all over the world making it a huge tourist destination.
There are many reasons to consider moving to NYC, and in this post we will explore five of them!
1. Unique And Endless Experiences
When you think about culture in NYC, you think about Broadway’s world-class theatre district. But in addition to this, there are countless other options for both singles and families to enjoy.
If you prefer something a little more intimate or quirky, there’s something special for you in New York as well. The experimental theatre on the Lower East Side of Manhattan will provide you with a unique play completely different than the shows on Broadway.
In addition to this, NYC has unique experiences galore.
In addition, you can take in stadium concerts, orchestral music, or listen to musicians perform on the streets. There are world-famous museums and tiny, offbeat ones too for you and your family to enjoy. Visit the Empire State Building or the statue of liberty for the ultimate tourist experience.
And we haven’t even touched on the options available for sports lovers! NYC has not one, but two major league baseball teams.
Same for pro football and basketball too! With so many wonderful options, why wouldn’t you want to call NYC your home?
2. Unlimited Food Options
Whether you’re a picky eater, you have dietary restrictions, or you’re a foodie you’ll be in culinary heaven. It’ll be difficult to come up with a type of cuisine you can’t find here to be honest!
Like the cultural experiences above, you will have access to the most refined and exquisite foods as well as the most bizarre and soul-satisfying street foods. Your options are limitless in NYC!
You can splurge at one of NYC’s Michelin 3 star restaurants and indulge in the best seafood, sushi, or French cuisine. If you’re on a budget, grab a slice of pizza from a street vendor for around a buck. If you have a hankering for Cuban food, Caribbean food, or Pho you can find it in NYC too!
3. It’s Open 24 Hours
Have insomnia? Or are you just a night owl? NYC is known as The City That Never Sleeps, and it lives up to its nickname!
The Empire State Building stays open until 2am. Bars are allowed to be open from 7 am to 4 am. Need a toothbrush or allergy pills at 2 in the morning? There’s probably an open bodega close by.
You’ll find plenty of places to eat no matter what time it is. In addition, some gyms are open at all hours too if you’re one to go for a middle of the night workout.
4. Get Anything Delivered, Anytime
NYC prides itself on its delivery services. Many New Yorkers exclaim on the luxury of being able to have just about anything imaginable delivered, sometimes in less than an hour. Add to that the luxury of having things delivered anytime–it’s The City That Never Sleeps, remember?–and you’ll start to feel like royalty.
We aren’t just talking about food or ordering from Amazon either. Think services like a massage and other really interesting and exciting things. If you need extra storage, no problem! Someone can come to you, take your stuff, and store it for you!
In New York City, you are only limited by your imagination (and maybe the law).
5. It’s a Great Place for Kids
No, really! With the amazing museums mentioned above plus 3 networks of libraries and impressive parks in every borough, there is plenty for the kids to do.
There are shows targeted to younger audiences. In this city, you’ll find a multitude of diverse cultural experiences for your child on every corner. What better way to prepare your children for an increasingly connected world?
Like everything else on this list, NYC has an amazing array of school options. Whether public or private, do some research first and find a school that is the perfect fit for your child and your family. Whether you choose a Brooklyn Montessori preschool or one of the city’s many beloved private schools, your child will be in great care.
NYC is a great place to explore in addition to being a wonderful place to live.
