When and Where to Splurge and Save in NYC

LIFE IN THE APPLE
by Lauren Malamala
Even the most basic lifestyle is pricey in Gotham.
Unlike most cities, even the most basic lifestyle in New York is expensive. In order to make ends meet (or at least attempt to), I’ve had to figure out where to scrimp and save in as many areas of my life as possible. Eating at fancy restaurants 24/7 wasn’t on my agenda when I moved to the city, so in no way do I feel like I’m missing out on much. I do, however, treat myself once every blue moon.

Talk about a throwback. If this exhibit doesn't leave you nostalgic for the music and city of yesteryear, I don't know what will.  Famed photographer Lynn Goldsmith started shooting rock and film legends on the streets of New York City in the 1970s, and more than 40 of her most memorable pieces are currently on exhibit at SoHo's Morrison Hotel Gallery.

Getting stuck in a cab on Park Avenue or spending hours on the 6 train during rush hour is inevitable in New York City. Whether you’re heading to work or spending a weekend shopping in a different part of town, mapping out your route beforehand is the most efficient way to navigate, especially when you have more than one stop on your list. What's more, whether you’re a local or a tourist, the last thing you want to do is waste time going back and forth between uptown and downtown Manhattan. Enter "Shop NYC."

Throwback: Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop Since 1929

by Tracy Kaler
Eisenberg's – Raising New York's cholesterol since 1929!
New York is a city of "firsts." First time riding the subway. First time eating a NYC bagel. First time seeing a Broadway show. The list goes on and on, and each new experience might be more memorable than the last. A few months back, I ate at Eisenberg's –– the famous Flatiron sandwich institution –– for the very first time.  Like many New York firsts, I had no idea what to expect before I walked through the door of the 80-plus year-old diner. But the one thing I knew for sure before I arrived was that I would absolutely order its legendary egg cream.

What Twenty-Somethings Expect When Moving to NYC vs. What It’s Really Like

LIFE IN THE APPLE
by Lauren Malamala
Excited to move to NYC after college? Landing a job might be harder than you think.
Every year, thousands of new, twenty-something transplants migrate to New York City for work, school, or just the experience of living in a new environment. In 2011, I was one of them. It’s almost comical to consider what my mindset was like back then, compared to how it is now, and I’m reminded of my adorable naivety whenever I come across another NYC rookie.
