OMGHi2U Would you sell your house and move to an apartment in NYC?

Updated on next page somewhere.

So, would you?

I spent a few weeks in NYC and my wife came out for a weekend. She loves the place and wants to move there. I may be able to keep my current job and work from home (and travel as usual), wife should be able to find a pretty good job there.
I'm having a hard time weighing up the pros and cons.
I liked the city, but am not sure if I could move into an apartment, after being in our house.

anything?

Visiting NYC != living in NYC
Ide much rather just visit.

I grew up in a big city (Philly) and i would rather just relax in the 'burbs at this point in my life.

I lived in Manhattan for 2 years, and I'd love to move back. Now, I don't know if I'd sell a house to move there, but that's up to you.

Can you turn the house money into a co-op in NYC?

hmmm... depends on how well I was being paid.

I'm there a lot and sometimes the city doesn't impress me and other times I like it...

I'd do it if I could maintain my standard of living.

Sell my house to move to NYC?

Hell no.

Sell my house to move into another house within a few hours of NYC so I can visit at my leisure?

Sure.

I used to live in Manhattan, it's fun, maybe you could rent your house for a year, and just go to NYC for a year. That way you don't have to sell it and could move back easialy.

NYC is for certain people. I'd sell my house for a rowhome or condo in a heartbeat.

Thought about that. Not sure how hard it would be to rent out.

How many of the above people who say they would never move there, have actually visited or lived in the city?

Agreed.

Upstate or Tarrytown I'd do though.

I live about 45 mins away. Close enough for commuting / pleasure purposes, don't think I could ever live there. Too many bums, junkies and general undesireables running around. It also makes me .... angry .. in a way no other place ever has.

After living in Hoboken which is almost a borough I would not move back and give up my house. It is frustrating just going into the city for events and such. There are just too many people and it's transit system is not up to that challenge. Really think about how much it costs to live in NYC. Rent is very very high and transport is very expensive. Add in Food and Nightlife and you got your self into some big trouble.

I'm finding it hard to read you guys. Are you trying to say you wouldn't move to New York


Just to let you know where we're coming from. Back in New Zealand we were able to walk/taxi/bus from home to work to bars to restaurants. At the moment in Phoenix we have to drive everywhere. Some of the time I miss the city life (Phoenix isn't a city, its a bunch of suburbs joined together).

This would go for about $25,000/month

Hope you are independently wealthy.

I love the city. I was born in Brooklyn and grew up on the Island going into the city all the time. But to live there now is PRICEY.
