New York -- City Guide
So you’re moving in NYC? Maybe a career shift is sending you out of state, or house prices finally dropped enough for you to afford your favorite place in Manhattan. Either way, HireAHelper is the best place to book your load, unload or full service move. Seriously, comparing moving quotes and booking movers in New York has never been this easy. If you're trying to figure out how much movers in New York cost, here's a blog post we wrote to answer that question. And if you’re making The Big Apple your new home, here are some tips on where to eat, shop, and have fun in NYC.
Dining in New York
New York is world-renowned as a hub of dining bliss. Thanks to the mash-up of a variety of cultures and cooking traditions, new flavors and dishes are invented constantly. Depending on what part of the city you’re in, you can find something sweet at “sugar Sweet sunshine” - a bakery featuring some fantastic baked desserts, according to NYC Food Guy. Or checkout the $10 Deep Fried “Montanara” Pizza at Forcella on Bowery that he raves about if you need something a little more substantial. Check out his blog for some great New York City dining recommendations.
Transportation - Getting from A to B in New York
The key to the transportation game in New York is the impressive subway system, utilizing it’s 24 trains to move over 4.3 million people per day. The intricate trains and their connections with the local buses and commuter trains can present a confusing challenge to newbies. But, once you get the hang of the system, it’ll take you just about anywhere in New York State, including Long Island and even out to parts of New Jersey, or Connecticut. Eva wrote a great post over here on the Tripwolf blog with more tips and tricks to getting the most out of the New York mass transit system.
Shop Like a New Yorker
One of the hardest parts of moving to a new city is finding favorite shopping spots all over again. You know the ones, where your favorite 3 or 4 stores are all close enough to make a quick afternoon trip. If you haven’t yet found your new shopping corner of New York, definitely checkout 5th Avenue. The Holiday Goddess editors highlight 5th Avenue as a great “no-map” shopping destination with stores of international fame like Saks and FAO Schwarz all nestled together within walking distance.
Family Fun in NYC
If you’re moving the whole family to New York, there’s plenty to do together. Getting everyone around town will probably be easiest on the subway as children under 44” ride free. Make sure to pick up a Pay-Per-Ride Metro Card that you can pre-load and swipe up to 4 times in a row to pay for 4 riding members. Now, where to ride to?
First, check out the big famous attractions:
- The Statue of Liberty
- The Empire State Building
- Times Square
- Rockefeller Center
- Staten Island Ferry
- Central Park
After seeing the famous sites, checkout some lesser known attractions, like Imagination Playground, at South Street Seaport, John St. between South and Front Streets or The Bronx Zoo down on 5th Avenue at 64th street. WeJustGotBack.com has a great insider guide to seeing New York with kids, curated by families that have been there. The list of family-fun activities goes on and on, so be sure to take a look.
No matter what brings you to New York, there’s plenty to eat, see, and experience. And if you’re moving to New York City, lets say, from Chicago, HireAHelper can help you find the right Chicago movers to load you up. Or if your move is taking you out of New York and down south to Texas, you can even compare and book Houston movers, without ever leaving our site. Plus, make sure to get your deposit back, or move into a clean new place, by hiring some help cleaning in New York through HireAHelper.com.
