Moving to New York City
If you’re moving to New York City, half the world will think you’re the luckiest person alive and the other half will think you’re crazy.
Here’s the key to New York; everything, yes everything comes down to space. In NYC, there are about 27,500 people per square mile. Compare that to Chicago’s 11,500 and you’ll begin to get the idea.
Manhattan is an island
Islands mean space is finite and Manhattan has only 22.7 square miles. Whatever isn’t there already must be brought in across, under, or over the water. Movers in New York City know it will be time-consuming, difficult to maneuver, hard to park and there may be a lot of steps involved in moving someone in or out.
The boroughs have a little more space but not much. If you move to trendy Brooklyn you might get more space and your movers will thank you for giving them a micron more breathing space. But it’s not going to be palatial so try and get used to the idea.
No space equals fewer things to move
If you ask New York City’s moving companies to move you to any of the city’s five boroughs they are going to look at how much you have to deal with and the less the better. If they can get 10 small jobs in the same area in one day, it’s going to work for them.
How do you get things a little more you-centered?
