This city has so many culinary options it's mind-boggling. Seriously. If we go out to eat for dinner and haven't already set a specific place to go, it will take forever to decide. You walk down almost any street and there are a barrage of restaurants to choose from. It's dizzying. I love it, don't get me wrong, but it seriously is a very time consuming process trying to find a place to eat.
We can't go out to eat all the time, as it turns out, NY is just as, if not more, expensive to eat and live as it was in California. I want to tell anyone not living in California or New York - if you plan on moving to either state - your cost of living will skyrocket. It's a fact. I think. Probably is. We have a super cute (oh, "cute" means small) studio (no bedrooms) apartment in the Financial District (all the way South on the island) and are basically paying the same amount you're paying for your house with lots of rooms, garage space and lawnage. I'm not complaining, I'm just warning. It ain't cheap here folks. You've been officially warned.
