Yes, we have a big New York announcement.
We signed a lease tonight which means we will have a new New York home. We won’t move in until the end of February.
We started our search for an apartment soon after we arrived but most places were available either immediately or for the beginning of February. We were told by agents to really start looking at the start of February for a move in of early March, so we did.
Our new place won’t be at all as big as our apartment in Sydney but it will be comfortable enough for the three of us and visiting guests.
Without revealing too much, our new apartment will be located approx 10 mins walk north of Times Square, 10 mins walk south of Central Park, about 10 mins walk to Carnegie Hall or the MoMA.
I will follow up with a post about our furniture frenzy and a rant about the cost of living in NYC – many people in Sydney complain about the cost of rent but they have obviously never rented in Manhattan. It’s enough to make your savings account cry.
