Our top Manhattan moving tips

Mostly situated on the island of Manhattan, the borough actually also includes a few islands and the Marble Hill section on the U.S. mainland. This neck of the NYC concrete jungle boasts a humid, subtropical climate with over 200 days of sunshine a year. Summers can be hot and steamy, with July and August averaging out to mid-to-high 80 degrees Fahrenheit (F).

Spring and Fall tend to be chilly and crisp. Winters are cold with an average of around 25 inches of snow annually. So, as you’re contemplating what to keep and what to give away when it comes to weather-appropriate clothes, it’s good to make sure you have something packed for every season.

In all kinds of weather, you’ll be singing in the rain or sweating it out on the city streets with 1.6 millions other Manhattanites. Beyond answers to the question “How’s the weather?” though, there’s a lot more to know about living in this borough, including:

  • Cost of living: Living in this part of NYC is among the most expensive places to live in the country. Utilities, groceries, transportation, and healthcare costs are all higher than the national average. Housing costs are especially high — over five times the national average. To put some numbers to it, the average rent in Manhattan is $4,140 per month. Fewer people buy homes here and those who do pay a premium to own real estate to the tune of $1.4 million as the median listing price. Per square foot, the average cost is about $1,600. No matter which way you go, you may need to downsize your belongings. Dwellings in Manhattan are generally smaller, though there are some differences depending on what part of the borough you secure your address. As you’re looking for a place to call your own, you may consider how you want to spend your money. If you’re a homebody, you may want to invest in maximizing the space you want to spend the majority of your time in. It’s good to keep in mind that some amenities, like a dishwasher, elevator, or laundry in-unit are harder to come by — or will increase your rent cost. However, if you plan to spend your time out and about, finding a place that puts you where you want to be location-wise may be your top priority.
  • Getting around: Plenty of people drive personal cars in Manhattan. However, if you’re bringing a car along with your move, you may be in for some traffic and regularly circling the block for a free parking spot. Both are common challenges for those with personal vehicles. The good news is there are plenty of good alternatives when it comes to commuting around Manhattan. Taxis are plentiful and you can hail one down on the street. Keep a lookout for the color of the car though. Green taxis will only take you where you want to go above E. 96th street, W. 110th street, and in the rest of the boroughs. Yellow taxis can go anywhere in the city. Then, of course, there are rideshare services you can use. Public transit is a fantastic option if you’re hoping to get around car-free. The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) offers a number of options, such as the iconic subway system and buses that’ll take you nearly everywhere you want to go in the city at just $2.75 for a one-way ride. Alternatively, you can rent a Citi Bike to take the scenic route while tooling around town. Unlimited passes will cost you just over $15 a month. Lastly, it’s good to pair any of these options with shoes you’re comfortable walking in quite a bit so you can keep pace with your fellow New Yorkers.
  • Speaking the local lingo: A borough this grand requires its own vocabulary. And, while you’ll learn it soon enough as you acclimate, there’s no reason not to study up before you set foot in the city limits. For starters, you’ll likely hear people refer to parts of Manhattan as “uptown” and “downtown”. Generally speaking, “uptown” is a reference to locations and neighborhoods north of 59th street, which is at the southern end of Central Park. “Downtown” refers to what lies south of 59th street. To further complicate the terminology, both phrases are used as directional descriptors as well. For example, you may hear the conductor say “this train is going uptown,” meaning it is going in the northern direction no matter where you’re starting from. On that note, when using the subway system, you may hear people refer to it as the “subway” or the “ train” instead of referring to it as the MTA. When it comes to which subway lines you’re taking, there are colors associated with them, but people generally refer to the letter or the number of the subway line instead (such as the “A train” or the “6 train”). If you find yourself in SoHo after getting off the train, make sure to pronounce the street you’re on as “House-ton” street, rather than the way you say Houston, Texas. As you continue to speak as a New Yorker, you’ll find that “New Yorker” typically refers to people who live in NYC as opposed to people who live in New York State. And, when you hear “the city,” many people are talking about Manhattan specifically.
  • Schools on the island: At all levels, many schools in the borough get great grades when it comes to institutions of learning. If you’re a parent, you may need to study up on how to enroll your child in the appropriate classroom. The Department of Education has resources on getting children enrolled anywhere from 3-K to high school. Generally, children in kindergarten through 8th grade will attend their zoned school, which is associated with your home address in the city. There is an application process for high schools, which may be an unfamiliar process for some. Manhattan is also home to world-renowned institutions of higher education. Among them are Columbia University and Barnard College in Morningside Heights. Downtown, New York University is located among several neighborhoods, including Greenwich Village, West Village, East Village, TriBeCa, SoHo, and Gramercy. There are also 11 public college campuses within the City University of New York located in Manhattan. No matter what stage you or your children are in your academic pursuits, you’ll find great opportunities here.
  • Recreation as a resident: It’s likely no surprise that arts, architecture, entertainment, and cultural institutions abound in this part of the city. There’s plenty to see even just walking around and exploring. Among the greatest attractions are the theaters of Broadway, the Metropolitan Museum of Art (or “The Met), the Museum of Modern Art (“MoMA”), Whitney Museum, Guggenheim Museum, the Apollo Theater, the Empire State Building, and Rockefeller Center just to name a few. To enjoy them all doesn’t come cheap for many visitors. As a resident, however, you can discover all the secrets of being a tourist in your own home because you have the luxury of living close by and claiming resident deals and discounts! For example, you can get less expensive tickets to a Broadway show by using the lottery system (they have in-person and digital versions), buying rush tickets, or getting standing room only tickets. You can also take advantage of the no-cost or pay-as-you-wish days at many museums and cultural institutions nearby. But, if you can’t schedule your visit during those days, there may be some local resident special pricing. That’s the case at The Met — New York State residents pay-what-you-wish for admission. Even though city livin’ ain’t cheap, there are times where it pays off to make Manhattan your home.
