The best tip we can give to anyone who is considering making a move to NYC: Sell your car! We have an amazing network of trains and busses that can take you to any corner of our great city. For more information, visit the official MTA website. Car insurance in NYC is expensive and parking isn't easy either. We highly recommend selling your gas guzzler and putting the money to better use, maybe buying a comfortable futon for your new apartment. Alternatively, you can also donate your car to a charitable cause. Donating your car not only helps the cause to which you donate, but can also give you very nice tax deductions and other benefits.
