Living in NYC is my absolute dream. I was planning on moving to Brooklyn this summer but I might wait another year or so. I am just finishing college and I don't have the money or a job to be able to survive.

I live in Manhattan...and yeah the real estate prices really stink here. bengalspice, manhattan is the most expensive urban area. sunshine23, look at craigslist and try to rent a room or split the apt with friends. don't use a broker with fees.

NY is expensive, but that doesn't change my mind about wanting to live there. I am wanting to move to NYC this year. For those that live there, any tips to save money or finding an apartment??

I live in NYC and though it is expensive - I believe its well worth it. Get 3 roommates if you have to, living in the city is ideal! The diversity is great, there's always something to do. I love it here.

I am jealous of you NYC ladies! I love the city and will be visiting in June. I try to get there once a year. I know it is expensive so I save up for a few months before so I can have a great time in the city. If I wasn't so setteled here I would move in a New York minute! :rotfl:

I was interested in moving to NYC but it was too much red tape to get an apartment that it would've been in my father's name and all. I decided to stay put in D.C with my $622 apartment.

I live in Houston, and I've been to NYC to visit...and yeah, I totally believe all of these. I know some people who have parents who work in NYC but live in the Houston metro...they live pretty darn well!

I live in NYC/Queens we just purchase a home and the average rent is about what we pay for our mortgage. Sometimes I think living in NYC is really overrated maybe because I'm use to it and I know not to get caught up in the hype. I think when people think of NYC they think Sex in the City. But you can live and have a great time my husband and I do on less than the 123K a year.

I live in NYC - pretty pumped my rent is so far below the average but it definitely gets really expensive here. I've had a few days when I just want to go back to Ohio because it can be so difficult and overwhelming. Then I think about how exciting it is to live here and how many fabulous things are just at my fingertips that I realize it's all worth it. Someday I'll move back to Ohio so I can actually save money (and I truly love Ohio) but for now, I wouldn't give up my amazing life here.
