The city of New York has many attractions like Central Park and The Empire State building. The city also has Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. For many Americans, going to New York is the ultimate dream. Whether it is because of the many things you can do or the opportunity that waits, New York City can offer more than you can grasp.
However, if you are planning to live there, be reminded that the cost of rent in the Big Apple might keep you up all night. Rent for an apartment for one person in New York City can cost more than a mortgage of a house in other cities such as, Los Angeles.
