What should international students know before moving to NYC?

Before moving to NYC you need to research this city. This is a legendary place. There are movies, books, songs and tv shows about this place. If you go there without any preparations you might feel a bit overwhelmed by everything. That’s why preparations are important. Don’t worry, we will gladly help you out.

Things you shold know before moving to NYC

NYC is divided into five boroughs – the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. At the moment Brooklyn is the most popular amongst students and younger crew. Jersey City and Hoboken in Hudson County are sometimes referred to as the sixth borough because they are so close by but in reality, there are only five boroughs. You probably heard that this city never sleeps. That can be a good thing since you will be able to find whatever you need even in the middle of the night, but it can get noisy sometimes. Don’t worry, you will get used to the noise in a few weeks.

Moving to NYC

You can say that sometimes this can be a hectic place. Traffic can be chaotic too! That’s why if you plan to move to one of the boroughs like Brooklyn you should ask skilled people to jump in and help you out with relocation and settling in especially. This city is not the friendliest place on earth, you won’t find any small town mentality here. That’s why it’s smart to hire movers to help you out and make the transition easier.

How will I fit in?

This is one thing almost all international students are wondering about. Chances are you will fit in just fine. This city is the most diverse place on earth. You can find just people of about any religion, race, and preference here. You will find your crowd easily, all you need to do is – mingle. To be able to do that, you need to unpack first (then you can have your new friends over) but don’t worry, Teddy Moving and Storage will gladly help you out with that.
