1. Do you have storage for your car?
You do not need a car to live in this city. Plenty of cars crowd the roads of New York, but most of them belong to competing camps of yellow taxis and Uber Toyota Priuses. You will not be needing your car anytime soon, especially if you live in Manhattan. Instead, get to know the MTA system intimately, because your happiness will be directly correlated to a convenience factor, which is, in turn, a function of walking distance to a subway station.
