Arguably the most famous city in America, if not the world, New York, New York is an unrelenting veritable hive of activity. With things to do for literally every kind of taste and style you could imagine, New York has something for anyone and everyone! From five-star restaurants to dive bars, the diversity of New York City and the people who live there cannot be overstated. New York is a melting pot of world cultures, with communities from all around the world. From Chinatown to Little Italy, the diversity of cultures from one block of the city to another is astounding. Far be it for us to say that New York is only a cultural hub, it’s also one of the greatest commercial areas in the world for shopping, dining, and entertainment! With world-famous places to see like The Empire State Building, Central Park, and Times Square, New York is never short of places to go and things to do! In the “Local attractions” section is a list of specific attractions, monuments, and significant landmarks and links to websites about them!
The cost of living in NYC is extremely high with studio apartments costing around $2,400. The closer you live to Times Square or Central Park the more expensive your rent will be. We highly recommend looking for another J1 to room with to share the cost of an apartment. Please note, without established credit, your first and last month’s rent may be required as a deposit. HRC recommends you arrive with at least $5,000 as startup capital and to help secure housing.
We will also put you in touch with a local Buddy or Alumni who can assist you with finding a place to live.
Getting around New York without a car is very easy. With local taxis, a comprehensive metro system, and many things simply within walking distance, there’s some diversity to the options available for traveling in the city. For information about using the New York metro system, use the below link.
