Where Would You Rather Work in NYC or L.I.?

Posted By admin on Nov 19, 2010 | 0 comments


Lately, I was discussing the benefits of working in the city. A lot of students prefer to work in Long Island over the New York City. So I decided why not have a blog about the comparison of working in New York City to Long Island. Now, I was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y. and going to the city is always a pleasure for me.
First off, just being in New York City and experiencing it first hand is incredible. New York City offers so much and more. Seeing the lights, the tall buildings, historic landmarks, and people can inspire you to dream BIG. So why wouldn’t someone work in the greatest city in the world? Need more convincing? Well, ok. In the city, you can save a lot on transportation. You wouldn’t need a car to survive. New York has the greatest public transportation system in the world. For an $89 ultimate monthly metro card, you can travel as many times you like for thirty days. There are thousands of different restaurants and eatery to satisfy your craving. Also, there are numerous stores to go shopping right after work all within your workplace! From 5th avenue to Manhattan Mall and everything in between. The nightlife is always on in the city, never missing a beat. With a variety of bars/clubs that offer after hours specials, who wouldn’t love spending a night out on the town in the city with their friends or co-workers? The diversity in the city is amazing. Meeting new people from all walks of life, allows one to gain a better understanding of different cultures and lifestyle.
Commute Times- drastically improved, based on how far from home you work. Without having to rely on public transportation, you can decide when you leave for work or home. With the rising MTA costs, costs of gas and insurance are not too terrible.
Salaries- You’re not going to see a ton of 1/4 million dollar salaries on long island. for the big banks and investment firms, yes you need NYC. But, there’s nothing wrong with making 80-100K in your late 20s or early 30s. You can always migrate to the city with a few years under your belt
Flexibility- with your own transportation and a job close to home, you’ll gain more time with family and extra activities like exercise, community groups, and special events.
