Empire State Building at night in New York CityNew York City is the storied destination of American immigration. The diverse communities and enduring old-world neighbourhoods are living representations of the city’s worldly appeal.

Expats moving to New York today aren't the wide-eyed 'fresh off the boat' fortune seekers of old, but the jet-setting, business savvy players of the world's economy.

At first, moving to New York can be frustrating; expats must learn to manage the competitive housing market, adjust to a new system of schooling, and find adequate employment. The work environment and the Manhattan lifestyle are brisk and energetic, and enjoying the fruits of labour is the best part of working in the 'Big Apple'.

Granted, the cost of living is high but this is just the price of admission to living in a city with endless highlights. There’s no better place in the US to explore the dynamic nightlife, eclectic selection of restaurants and theatre, chic apartments and the diverse international population.

New York has a centre-of-the-world feel, acting as the controlling axis not only for America's financial markets but also for much of the world's economy.
