Southern New York – home to New York City, Long Island, and the base of the Catskill Mountains. You are close to the Atlantic Ocean, Times Square, amazing food 24/7, and a city that never sleeps – which means you’ll always have something to do. Broadway, skyscrapers, and massive public transport, if you don’t mind people, action, and an on-the-go lifestyle, NYC is the perfect place for you. Even though it is one of the most expensive housing and living areas in the country, many find this a wonderful trade off for being so close to pretty much everything. Plus, you’re never too far from Upstate, where you can get your fill of nature at popular weekend getaway spots for city-dwellers.
