House Removals to New York: An Overview

Moving to an amazing, culturally-diverse city like New York is an exciting decision, but one that involves a lot of forethought and planning. New York or “The Big Apple” as everyone knows it, has everything. Glitz and Glamour, cuisine, character, arts, architecture, international business and much more. Impossible to be bored, it is easy to see why thousands of Brits relocate here.

As with all cities, the cost of living is expensive. However, there are places to eat and socialise which are cheaper if you know where to look. There are also some great places to visit such as Central Park which cost nothing. If you have a little more cash to spend, a visit to the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building is a must. There are nearly 300 museums in the area, some do not charge an entry fee.

One of the things New York is most famous for is shopping. People from all over the world travel to shop here. From top end designer goods to flea markets, art markets and for foodies the Grand Central Food Market. Something for everyone.

Property prices & House Removals New York

It is a good idea to rent a property before you buy. There are some great neighbourhoods and depending on your circumstances and finances, you can buy some reasonably priced properties.

Greenwich Village is an expensive but desirable location. Chelsea is cheaper and good for families, whilst the Meat Packing District is great for nightlife. Everyone has a different agenda, so it is good to visit each area and get a feel for where would best suit you before you commit to a purchase.

As a guide you can expect to pay around $543.000 (£412.000) for a family home in Queens. In some areas of Brooklyn, you can pay $745.000 (£565.000) for the same. The rule “closer to the centre” is more expensive applies here.

Hiring a good real estate agent is very important, they will be able to offer local knowledge and experience to assist you in making your choice. Here are a few New York agents you can contact:

Schools & House Removals New York

The City’s public school system, operated by the New York City Department of Education, is the largest in the world. More than 1.1 million students are taught in more than 1,700 public schools. There are several selective specialized schools, such as Stuyvesant High School, The Bronx High School of Science, and Brooklyn Technical High School. Several charter schools that operate in the city, such as Success Academy Charter Schools and Public Prep. With approximately 900 additional privately-run secular and religious schools in the city and a good selection of International schools, you will not be short on choice.

It can be a daunting experience searching for the best school for your child. Research is the key. There are some great expat websites to visit. Other people who have already gone through the school selection experience, can be a mine of information when it comes to education, here are a few sites to look at:
