Ah, The Big Apple. The greatest city in the world. The city that never sleeps. It’s exciting to be in the city. Whether you are just visiting or stop-in all the time, one thing I can say for certain is not the greatest thing in the world. The price of living in New York City. Now, a lot of people I know and work with do live in New York City – it is possible to do on a budget if that’s your dream.
