New Girl in New York

My husband and I have been living in New York for about 2 months now and I am slowly but surely learning my way around Manhattan.  Before I came here and when I first arrived I wanted as much information about my new home as possible.  There are lots of guide books and websites but not that much information about what it is really like to live here and how to settle in.  I am hoping that my blog will provide some useful information to expats coming here from the UK and other places around the world.  I won't comment on, or recommend anything I haven't experienced first hand.

Little things make a big difference, so maybe some of my discoveries and experiences will help you settle in to this wonderful city.


  1. Hi New Girl!

    I think I've just read your whole blog, or most of it! It's very useful information and really well written. Fingers crossed I will move to New York (from Australia) sometime in the next 6-12 months so I've been doing a bit of online research and stumbled across your blog. If the plans come to fruition I'll be in touch! Cheers, Trish.

  2. Hi Trish!
    Thank you much for your lovely comment and for taking the time to read my blog. I am so glad you are finding it useful and hope that you end up being a New Girl in New York soon! Let me know how it goes!
    Thanks again for the positive feedback.
