NYC Apartments: The Inconvenient Truths

Let me share something with you right off the bat, if you are not from around here or this is your first time doing your apartments in New York City homework.

You are in for both a tractor trailer’s worth of shock and awe. Shock at what things cost. Awe at what you can purchase, if you have a large enough piece of money.

Let me explain in a direct and to the point Native New York City Taxi Driver kind of way.

If you want or expect low prices, go to Walmart. Purchase a dollhouse or a doghouse.

Apartments in New York City if you are a mere mortal are expensive. Stupidly expensive! What you would pay elsewhere in the USA, for a home or apartment would get you a postage stamp sized studio apartment in New York City.

There is a scene in the great movie the “Wizard of Oz” which nicely sums up the whole New York City Real Estate and New York City Apartments Thing. Dorothy turns to her faithful canine companion and states in no uncertain terms, “Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

Dorothy nails it in the preliminaries.

However, this does not stop or slow down plenty of folks from the very non-exclusive Broke-Ass Club from coming here. Cue the music to Frank Sinatra’s song “New York, New York” The whole “if I can make it there, I can make it anywhere” scenario.

So, in the interest of doing my civic duty, I will share with you my limited knowledge.
