Re: The Ramonator is moving to New York.
I'll sum up NYC for those who have only visited..
You wake up at 5am, it's dark.
You go to the bus station, it's dark.
You sleep, hit the tunnel waking you up, yup it's still basically dark..
You get to your office, you are typically in a windowless office, still no sign of the sun
You go to lunch, 5 months out of the year, no sun, only gray and cloudy (lunch is $20 and by the time you get down the elevator to street level you already burned 10 minutes, then you walk thru a cloud of smokers..)
You head home, it's dark
Get to your car, roll into your house 7pmish, it's full on dark
You eat, watch tv for two hours, then go to bed...
Living in the city is basically this:
Find the largest closet in your house, then consider renting that for $1800/ month.. You still won't see the sun for 5 months and your closet's rent goes up every year. Typically your closet doesn't even have walls, basically a curtain separates the "bedroom" from the rest of your closet..
Ramon, I grew up by the city, I worked in the city, unless these is an unbelievable job or you just need to do something financially, THEN STAY IN MIAMI! My friends born and raised in Miami moved to NYC for 6 figure job, they lasted 1 year...
Just watch selling NY on Bravo, even the rich people live in closets..
Good luck, but you'll be back in one year... NYC is by far the most overrated city on the planet. To vist it's awesome, to live and work it's awful.
