Life in New York City

Over half of our residents live in New York City. The relatively short 30-minute commute is made possible by the fact that we travel against the usual traffic. New York City’s rich diversity and culture provide limitless diversions and activities regardless of individual interests. Whether it’s a restaurant/bar, museum, park, sporting/concert event, or shopping venue, there’s always a new place to be explored. Residents living in NYC typically choose the Upper East Side or Upper West Side for quick highway access and relatively easier street parking compared with other areas of the city. Manhattan is easily accessible by car and public transportation. The Metro-North rail service operates every day of the week, including holidays.
