Moving to New York: Pros and Cons
If you’re considering living in New York you’ll find that there are a number of good reasons for moving to that state. You’ve probably already realized the advantages of making the move. But it sometimes takes a long time to decide if relocating is the right thing to do, so it’s a good idea to take a while to think about the details before you decide if it’s right for you.
Each year, a lot of people move to new homes in the United States. Around 12 percent of the population, or about 35 million people, leave their current residence for a new domicile. A number of families and individuals from across the country relocate to New York, and they often find that it can be an exciting adventure.
If you’re new to New York, there are many new sights and experiences in store for you. Numerous guidebooks and online sites supply an almost endless inventory of information about every conceivable benefit that the state offers.
Among your first decisions will be selecting the best places to live in New York. Do you prefer life in the city, a small town or in the country? You can find a variety of options that will fit the kind of environment that suits you best. The next step is to choose several different locations that fit your preferences, and then look at the advantages that each provides. If you have friends or relatives you’d like to be near, that can help you narrow down the options. They can also probably help you make a good decision by providing advice and inside information.
Once you’ve considered the many advantages and opportunities the state offers, you’ll probably be asking yourself, should I move to New York, to another state that’s also interesting, or should I stay in my current state? It all depends on your reasons for moving. Sometimes your circumstance can help to make your choices clear. If you’re relocating for a new job, for instance, that makes your decision easier. Otherwise, you must weigh the benefits that you’ll reap by making the move.
Economic decisions always play a role when it comes to making a move, so you’ll of course want to consider the cost of living in New York. Taxes, fees, the price of real estate and many other factors determine how far your money will go in any geographic location. You can look at the cost of food, utilities and other day-to-day or year-to-year expenses and make your own calculations. Or, find an online cost-of-living calculator and let it do the work for you.
There’s a great deal of information that you’ll want to consider if you’d like to move to New York, and that may take a bit or research on your part. The time you invest in finding the facts will be worthwhile, most likely. Should you decide to make the move you’ll feel more confident about your decision, and you’ll likely have a good idea of what to expect in your new home.
Registering a Car in New York and Getting a New York Drivers License
It can be challenging to get around almost everywhere without your own source of transportation, so it’s a good idea to ensure that you know the rules of the road and any new regulations that you’ll be obliged to follow. When you’re moving to New York, the DMV will likely be among the many stops you’ll want to make as soon as you begin to get settled. Start out by looking at the New York.gov DMV website. It supplies a lot of the information you’ll need to know and can save you a lot of time.
You’re probably most interested in finding out the facts about transferring your car registration, such as how much it will cost and how soon you must make a transfer after becoming a resident of the state. Fortunately, you can find all of that information online.
Another top question for motorists taking up residence in the state is what must I do about my driver’s license? Again, you’ll find all of the facts that you need to know on the government site. In addition, you can learn about all of the rules associated with registering a car in New York.
Moving to New York with Guns
If you’re an outdoorsman and are moving to New York with guns, you’ll want to know what regulations and licensing procedures you’re facing.
New York is generally perceived to be highly restrictive for purchasing, possessing, or carrying firearms. This is especially the case for New York City and its surrounding suburbs, and larger urban centers throughout the state where most New Yorkers live and work. In contrast, most rural areas in New York have relatively permissive firearms policies, particularly with respect to concealed carry.
New York State Law does not require a hunting license to own or possess long guns or pistols. New York State Law does require a permit to own/possess a pistol. New York State Law does not require a permit to own or possess a long gun unless it falls under the definition of assault weapon. In 2013 New York State banned the sale and possession of assault weapons (guns that have certain features) NY SAFE Act. New York City has its own set of laws and requires permits to own any long gun or pistol.
You may find that the gun laws in New York are more lenient or more restrictive than the laws in the state that you are moving from. In either case it’s a good idea to contact your local law enforcement agency to ensure that you’re getting the most up-to-date rules and regulations, whether you’re moving to New York with a handgun rifle or shotgun.
5 Ultimate Tips for Moving to New York
Relocating to a new state can be a tricky business, so you’ll certainly benefit by picking up any tips to make moving to New York a little easier. Here’s a handful of items that will help you get started:
- Many buildings in New York don’t have elevators, so that will increase the effort (and the time required) if you’re moving into an elevator-less building in the City.
- City streets aren’t made for moving trucks. So if you’re moving yourself, don’t drive that rental truck if you are uncomfortable on narrow streets.
- Parking signs in NYC are pretty explicit. Although reading signs may be the last thing you’re thinking about when you’re parking your moving truck, you most likely WILL get a ticket if you park in the wrong spot.
- Many buildings restrict move-in/move-out times as well as access to the freight elevator; check with your building about any such restrictions.
- Moving always takes longer than you estimate, so if you’re renting a truck, rent from a company that allows after-hours drop-off. Or plan your move to allow plenty of time to return the truck.
It’s never exactly easy to make such a big decision as moving, particularly if you plan to move to another part of the country that’s far away. But you’re probably taking the time to think about all of the pluses and minuses that you may encounter. So, when your mind is made up and you’ve decided to go, and you have your heart set on a new, exciting destination that you’ll soon call home, take the leap! Call us for an estimate and the professionals here will help you begin your new journey. It could be the first step you’ll take on a long road of exciting adventures.
