You did it. You packed up your few worldly possessions, said goodbye to whoever you once were at home, and bought yourself a one-way ticket to the Big Apple. Now youre in the worlds greatest city without a clue as to where youre actually going to live.
And its a big decision: if you didnt know, people in New York take the phrase You are where you live to a whole other level. So while youre camping in one of New Yorks many hostels, trying to figure out where youll be making your home in the city that never sleeps, it pays to understand NYCs neighborhoods and who you can expect to become depending on where you choose to live.
