I live in NY my whole life and I think its actually pretty hard to find any kind of jobs here. Everyones looking and no one is finding anything. Its very expensive to live here too so I suggest not living in NYC but maybe some of the surrounding areas like the bronx or brooklyn. Its best to save A LOT of money and find a roomate. Try getting a regular Job and finding a place that will let you intern so you can get some experience in your field. Goodluck!

Quoting khigh:" What type of journalism? NYC is great, but the hard hitting reporters and journalists are in DC. There's nothing better for a communications major than White House press credentials."


photojournalism.. more about social problems and helping somehow. :)
I also want to be a photographer and writer :)

Quoting TheNuge:" so, if i moved to your country because i thought it was really cool but i couldnt support myself, i should be entitled to live off of the earning of the citizens your country?"


I said I'd be a honest hard worker.
If someone wants to work hard, they can go wherever they want. Period. :)

When I drive on the LIE thru queens I view all those high rises and it makes me shudder.

my sister-in-law has lived in nyc since she was... 16? she lived in bx until she moved to the village early last month. more expensive but also more convenient for work.



also, i have a friend who recently moved from miami beach to the upper east side. he had to stay in a hotel for 2 months before he found something (it was a spur of the moment move). he is a manager at Coach and does not go to school but somehow he affords it. he lives alone in a 1 bedroom apartment.

Quoting Supafly★:" Parts of the Bronx are just awful. But some parts are really nice. It just has a bad rep because of the South Bronx. "


i know how it is. while i haven't actually lived there, i used to spend summers there.

Cool. Fortunately, there are lots of ways to "move it on up" in NYC. I miss it!

Quoting Supafly★:" You do but most people don't is what I'm saying. People who have never been there are hear all about how "bad" it is normally don't know about the nice parts. Same with Brooklyn and Queens. "


that is ridiculous. but there again, i guess it is like people going to the keys (where i am originally from) and thinking it is such a tropical, beautiful and awesome place to live. then, they get there and there isn't even a beach lmao.
