NYC is a garbage dump nowadays. There is too much pollution, a lot of nasty and rude people out to get what they want. I lived in NYC all my life until now. Its a lot of a major struggle to find jobs. It is very expensive to live. A lot has happened since Hurricane Sandy. Which by the way you don't want to experience living in a very big and crowed city. The health care system is ridiculous. You only go to the right doctors and people who actually want to help you. Trains get very crowded, and you have to deal with rats. Now with the BLM and the protesting going on, it will be very hard to get to work. I had that happened to me where I was running in 30 minutes late. Its not a healthy environment. You have to watch out for a lot of people, wither in the law, the health care system, the legal system, your neighborhoods', etc. Gangs are everywhere. Murders happen, including rape.
But other than the crazy struggles one goes through. I can be a fun experience in the right places with the right kind of people. But if you never been to NYC before. Try to visit for a while first during many times of the 4 seasons. However once you go in, its hard to get out. Do your research, visit FIRST before you decide to live. Because its a lot that is going on over there. But you must have a lot of money. And be careful how you use it.1

I live in the Bronx but planning to move to Queens or Brooklyn not too far from Downtown because that's where I work. Traveling 1.5 hours to/from work five days a week is too long and tiring. Lower - Midtown Manhattan is too noisy and expensive. So, pick carefully so you can actually enjoy living and working in New York. It's definitely great because there is so much you can do there. Trains and buses will get you anywhere you wanna go.2
