Wondering if NYC moms think the city is slowly getting better, I believe it is, but only from what I hear.
I have been waiting to move back for so long (had left in 2016) finally there are a few job opportunities opening up, after 2 years of actively searching - so my dream is finally turning to reality.
I would be happy if I could afford a one bedroom apt (possibly Upper East/Yorkville) for a while rents were slightly lower, but now prices seem to be going up again.
Also, in terms of safety, I heard from some friends that they are avoiding subway and also walking around at night - as they feel it is not as safe as it used to be. What are your thoughts? Is this everywhere or only in some parts of the city?
Anyway, this year has been particularly tough, not only Covid but other things (including imminent divorce) I am trying to stay positive and look forward to coming back to the only city I have ever loved, although there is a lot to plan for.
Any feedback/advice really appreciated. Thank you for reading.
