I WOULD SELL MY SOUL TO LIVE IN NYC!

Seriously folks, I ain't kidding.

How hard is it gonna be for me (an Aussie) to LIVE and WORK in NYC?? I will apply for a Working Visa. Honestly I don't care if I'm a bum, I just wanna be where it's at!!! I'm gonna work my arse off until June next year to save enough cash to get my arse outta here.

What neighbourhood would you recommend to live, keeping in mind the price range and the fact I'm a clueless foreigner? Where's cool to eat?

How easy will it be to get a waitressing/cafe/bartender/shopkeeper job? I'm not looking to begin my career in NYC, I just want to experience something different and live a little for atleast a year. And I need a part-time job to support my habit (fun times).

I was planning to register for the Green Card Lottery, but I think I'm too late. Bummer sad

Share the love people smile Tell me how much y'all love NYC - is it the greatest city in the world??

I'm so bloody excited, I'm practically jumping out of my pants.

Are you unhappy in Melbourne? So many people would like to trade places with you.
I think NYC is one of the most expensive cities in the world.

No, I am not unhappy in Melbourne, bored perhaps. I want to mix it up. I am becoming far too complacent here.
Expensive - I can deal with. I have lived in Europe and the rent was ridiculously high, but I managed. Melbourne is pretty damn expensive too, especially in the city.

NYC is worth it smile

Well, where did you live in Europe ? Paris and London are expensive but other than that, I can´t imagine any place in Europe to be more expensive than NYC or Tokyo or Moscow. Those are supposedly the most expensive cities ( and I have seen some shitty places in Paris where people had to pay 400 € for one small room).
The funny thing is , so many people here in Europe want to go to Australia, and even Americans are leaving the USA in order to live in Europe or Australia, yet you want to live in NYC. But I can relate to your situation, I have the same urge to go and live elsewhere for a while. I already checked out some countries but haven´t found my final destination yet. Latin America and parts of the Caribbean are nice but either very dangerous or too expensive or both, and the job situation is a bit difficult.
If I wanted to live in the USA , I´d rather go where it´s sunny and warm but I have been wanting to spend at least a month or two in NYC for some years now. I should go and do it.

I´m just afraid I´d put on a lot of weight there. lol
They obviously have some interesting food in NYC.
I´m sure some of the NYC orgers can help you a bit.

You'd have to sell probably a lot of stuff to raise money for moving/living there.

be realistic about it and good luck. I'm sure there's plenty or people there who have actually sold their soul and they're risking communicable disease daily so be careful what you ask for wink

Good luck with that,but selling your soul won't be enough.Better sell your car and what have you.if you ever get here find a place in new jersey and take the train in.Unless you're in art,entertainment or finance you're not missing anything

you might need to pawn that soul to live in NYC' that's for sure. I can't say I did not love groeing up in the city, with all the different people and things to do and the freedom to just say and do how you please.

But I also feel a little claustrophobic when I go visit....and it is really fast paced and dirty.

I think Miami is a better deal than NYC, budget pending.

It truly depends on what field your trying to get into ... it would be best to live somewhere near to where you plan to work, as far as work some areas are doing well with the economy,others not so much choose wisely.

If you're coming here to NYC, make sure you have a TON of money, and a thick skin, or you'll be longing for home in no-time flat. nod

Only knowing you here on The Org, I can tell you without hesitation: YOU BELONG IN NYC! (...specifically, in Brooklyn!) I truly don't know how Mississippi has kept you contained this long, lol.

nodI second that. Vainandy would shut folks down here in NYC and have them crying like a beeyotch. He has the right attitude and the "thickest" skin, and that's why so many of us love him around here, especially in the p&r forum, because vain does not hesitate, I repeat, does not hesitate for one second, to tell you exactly what's on his mind. lol Vain's a one-man show and he knows it. lol

remember that schitt lol

Interesting thing about that clip, I met Tracy Morgan in Popeye's Chicken the same Saturday that they filmed that episode later in the evening. He was markedly underweight, wearing just jeans and an old t-shirt, and didn't seem to be well, though you couldn't tell in his "Woodrow" costume. I mean, it was really striking. Though everybody was all excited, chatting with him and acting like they were his friend. Then the minute he left Popeye's - people started talking mad-shit about how awful he looked and how he looked "sick", lol. Thankfully, he seems to have long since recovered from whatever it was that was ailing him that day. But I remember thinking when I was watching Saturday Night Live that night, that perhaps they chose that skit because the costume hid how much weight he had lost at that point in time.

Make sure you get some good $ for your soul! You'll need it if you get sick.

You might not miss Australia, but you'll miss being able to turn up to a hospital without a credit card.

Apparently that's called socialism in The US!? eek
