Living in New York

The Big Apple keeps getting better. New York has miles of bike lanes, bike share programs, and there’s always been extensive public transportation — the subway, the LIRR, buses everywhere, and you have to try hard not to find a walkable neighborhood.

On the island of Manhattan, you’re never more than a 10 or 15 minute walk from a subway station; super hip Brooklyn and Williamsburg offer more of the same. The entire city has the urban density that supports walking to nearly everything: the city’s great museums, playgrounds like Central Park, East Village restaurants... many New Yorkers live their whole lives without ever owning a car.
