An Expat Talks about Living in New York, New York

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

New York

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?

There is so much to do here in terms of activities and clubs. I've never joined any but book clubs would benefit newcomers as well as gyms, the Road Runners Club, individual churches or religious faiths may have some sort of clubs, Mommy and me classes, classes at the New School, etc.......

In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

The most diverse city in US (I think). There are people from all over the world here. There are a lot of little sections of this city designated to certain populations from foreign countries. Some New Yorkers are completely accepting of differences, (an example of this - after 9/11, some NY made a conscious effort to not be racially biased towards Muslims while others did).

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Investing - Wall Street, Advertising, Fashion, Marketing, a lot of Law firms!

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Work, Work, Work - to make lots of money!!! Socializing is a big factor as well. Sports is up there too among a lot of men.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

I highly recommend young people moving to this city. It has a lot of opportunities for growth. I would recommend this city to anyone who is bored with their current city and are looking for change. I feel that families would benefit more from the suburbs surrounding the city. The public school system can be tough for children just moving here.
