NYC Apartment & Moving Survival Guide // Becky Stern

NYC Apartment & Moving Survival Guide // Becky Stern

In my 13 years of New York City residence, I’ve racked up a total of 10 in-town moves and two moves to NYC from out of state, and I learned something new during every one. Here I will share some tips I’ve learned that help make searching for and moving into a new apartment as pain-free as possible (or at least below a tolerable threshold 🙃). Although I’m biased towards living alone or with a partner, these tips can apply to those spearheading a search with roommates already in mind. More tips and useful links on the blog!
