About New York

There is much more to New York than just New York. With 19.85 million residents, New York is the fourth most populous state in the USA. It’s true that 40% of the state’s population lives within New York City, but there is plenty to explore across its 55,000 square miles. New York state was one of the 13 original colonies which first formed the United States, which is perhaps why we associate NY culture with being so typically American. All of this, truly does make New York a remarkable city to reside in, why not consider moving to New York?

Suburb Profiles

New York City – let’s start with the obvious. NYC is the most populous city in the US, and is deservedly the cultural, financial and media capital of the world. The city’s fast pace is a result of its position as a hotspot for business, and it is also an important location for international diplomacy, acting as host to the headquarters of the United Nations as well as other organisations.
Rochester – located on the southern shore of Lake Ontario, Rochester is a great place to live for people of all ages, with low living costs as well as a low rate of unemployment. In terms of education, Rochester has good schools and several universities, including the University of Rochester and Rochester Institute of Technology.
Buffalo is New York state’s second largest city and lies in a beautiful location on the eastern shore of Lake Erie, close to Niagara Falls. There is plenty to do in Buffalo whatever your interests, from roaming around the 50+ art galleries to taking a stroll in one of the city’s many parks- there are more than 20 in total!
Albany is the state capital and is situated on the west bank of the Hudson River. The city is a hub for high-technology and nanotechnology industries, so is a great location to consider for your move to the USA if you work in this sector. Albany has plenty to offer by way of keeping you entertained both by day and night, with more than 60 public parks, as well as a vibrant nightlife and good entertainment.

Transport / Getting Around in New York

There is great public transport to get you around within New York as well as connections to other states and countries. The ‘Northeast Corridor’ train service runs through New York on its way between Boston, Massachusetts and Washington DC. Within the state, the ‘Empire Corridor’ runs between New York City and Niagara Falls. There are also intercity networks which can get you from place to place on a budget. In terms of aviation, New York state has 20 commercial airports, 11 of which operate international services. With this in mind, transport around New York is most certainly not an issue.

Things to Do in New York

Moving to New York is an exciting adventure which offers an array of opportunities. Whilst you’re nearby, it’s highly recommended that you experience the buzz of NYC. For a more outdoorsy vibe, you can go hiking in the Adirondack mountains, or fishing in Lake Ontario. Letchworth State Park is a largely overlooked spectacle but is sufficiently breath-taking to be referred to as the “Grand Canyon of the East”.
