Are you in that New York state of mind? Even if you aren't a native New Yorker, there's something about the Big Apple that makes it impossible to resist. Perhaps it’s the iconic destinations like Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center, and the Empire State Building. Or maybe it's the fact that you don't need a car -- the fantastic subway system, the walkability, the trains, the buses, and the yellow taxi cabs make living car-free a reality. There are even more reasons to want to "make it" in New York -- Wall Street, Broadway, the endless nightlife, the amazing shopping, and some of the best restaurants in the world.

Apartments in New York range from sleek and sophisticated high-rises to historic brownstones to chic and stylish lofts. The city is divided up into five boroughs: Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. Many of NYC's legendary neighborhoods are on Manhattan: Gramercy Park, Greenwich Village, Hell's Kitchen, and the Upper East Side. The city is filled with top-ranking universities, including Columbia University, New York University (NYU), Fordham University, and Julliard.

No matter where you choose to live, put on your walking shoes and go exploring. The wide sidewalks and towering buildings create a maze-like feeling you'll love getting lost in -- especially when you can walk past places like the Flatiron Building, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Lincoln Center, the American Museum of Natural History, and Times Square.

Living in New York

  • History

    New York was settled in 1624 and was named for the Duke of York. But it was in 1604 that Henry Hudson first explored the area as he searched for the Northwest Passage to the Orient. After exploring the coast for nearly two weeks, Hudson claimed the area for the Dutch East India Company.

  • Parks

    The best-known park in NYC is (of course) Central Park. The park was built in 1857 and covers 843 acres. It is a National Historic Landmark and was designed by famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. The park is filled with walking paths, pedestrian bridges, and benches. It features horseback-riding trails, ice-skating rinks, a conservatory, and the Central Park Zoo. Its outdoor amphitheater, the Delacorte Theater, hosts the summertime "Shakespeare in the Park" festival. The park also provides playgrounds, ball fields, the famous Belvedere Castle, and the legendary Tavern on the Green.

  • Cost

    Rent in Manhattan is pricey. You can expect to pay roughly $3,000 a month for a studio apartment. Part of that is because of demand -- NYC is the most densely-populated cities in the country with about 28,000 residents per square mile. In fact, there are close to nine million residents in the city. Luckily, the economy is one of the best in the world, and many fortune 500 companies are located in the city. The oldest building in New York is located on Gardiners Island. The Carpenter's Shed was built in 1639 and is the only still-intact building that was granted by the Royal Crown.

  • Transportation

    New York City is pedestrian-friendly and bicycle-friendly. The subway system provides fast, easy access throughout the entire city and is the most popular way to get around. Those living in Staten Island have access to the Staten Island Ferry, which is free. For trips to Long Island, the Long Island Railroad is available at Penn Station. The city also offers buses, and the yellow taxis are easy to hail, not to mention iconic. Other notable buildings include the Alice Austen House in Staten Island, built in 1690; the Fraunces Tavern in Lower Manhattan, built in 1719; and St. Paul's Chapel in Manhattan, built in 1764 and one of the oldest surviving churches in the state.

  • Shopping

    As the center for the fashion industry, the shopping in NYC is legendary. From Macy's in Herald Square to Niketown to Downtown's Century 21 and Chelsea Market Baskets, there's something for everyone In the city. Of course, there's Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys New York to explore, as well. From corner bakeries to sidewalk cafes to some of the hottest fashion boutiques in the world, you'll find what you're shopping for in New York. Be sure to stop by the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market and the 165th Street Pedestrian Mall in Queens when you feel like bargain-hunting. There are even whole neighborhoods designated as shopping enclaves. SoHo, for example, offers everything from odd to trendy to fashionable, all housed in historic buildings along cobblestone streets.

  • Restaurants

    No matter what cuisine you're craving, what atmosphere you're looking for, or the price point you want to pay, you'll find it in New York. The city's restaurants are plentiful and legendary, from five-star French cuisine to the best in New York style pizza. Must-try restaurants include Gramercy Farmer & Fish, Pietro Nolita, Sugarfish, Lalo, Gristmill, Italienne, Black Walnut, Tavo, Seabird, 49 Monroe, Hanoi House, Fusco, Birds of a Feather, Simply Hooked ... do yourself a favor -- just start dining out. You'll find your favorites. (Oh, and don't forget the food trucks, corner cafes, and food carts.)
