New York City Feelings

I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York's skyline

New York City is full of great food, beautiful sights, and endless things to do.
But it's also a place of inflated prices, tiny apartments, and a less-than-perfect public transportation system.

Moving here is equal parts amazing and terrifying. So for anyone courageous enough to think about packing up and heading to the Big Apple, we asked our friends and followers about what they wish they'd known before moving to New York, and first you will need affordable moving company like Dumbo Moving and Storage NYC.

So you're about to move to the greatest city in the world, where you will soon have said world at your fingertips. Everything you'd want in terms of culture, dining, shopping, education, and $12 beer is right here. Plus, you'll never have to own a car again.

Save money selling your car. People walk. Everywhere. All the time. It's a good thing. I know virtually nobody who owns a car here.

I don't say that to scare you, and, remember, we all love the city, to feel like real New Yorkers, and to think of NYC as our home. Come here with as much money as you can save. An ubercheap apartment costs you $1,000 a month. Riding the subway is over $100 a month. This city is a money hole.

A lot of people come to the city with very little cash and feel they have to live in Manhattan. They feel they're somehow not "real" New Yorkers unless they live on the island. So they plunge themselves into debt, renting absurdly expensive apartments they can't afford. Do yourself a favor and look to Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island and Brooklyn.

Expect New Yorkers to be friendly but in a hurry. We'll absolutely help you with directions or whatever, but get to the point.

St. Cloud | A New Rooftop Above Times Square

St. Cloud, the rooftop bar and lounge at The Knickerbocker Hotel, are you ready for cocktails, delicious food and Nat Sherman Cigars?

St. Cloud is named after the late 19th Century hotel that originally occupied The Knickerbocker site.

Now, with the renovation of the hotel, it is an indoor-outdoor bar and lounge run by In Good Company Hospitality, with the chef Charlie Palmer doing light food like tuna tacos and a Cuban sandwich.

Signature menu items will include Wagyu Hot Dogs with House Relish and Mustard and Tuna Tacos with Wasabi Aioli and Cilantro. Culinary offerings will be expertly paired with a progressive cocktail program and craft bottled beers.

A 7,800-square-foot rooftop bar and terrace. Enviably situated on the southeast corner of 42nd Street, overlooking Times Square between Broadway and Bryant Park, St. Cloud is the pinnacle of The Knickerbocker experience.

4pm – 12am (Mon-Wed)
4pm – 1am (Thurs-Fri)
Closed on Sundays

The Knickerbocker,
