Moving to a new city where one does not know the area or people can be scary, but what about if a person moves to one of the most populated cities on the planet? The thought can be overwhelming, but there are things one can do. Don’t wait until the last minute. Whether that means to pack or explore the area one will be residing in. You will want to know, especially if one has never lived in New York, the closest subways stations and the best way to get around. One can search for online community groups of interest to get involved with, as well as explore volunteer opportunities in the area. Volunteering is a great way to get to know people in the community and make friends.
