If you’re considering relocating to NYC or one of its boroughs, take a good, long look at Queens, NY. Recently announced as the #1 top travel destination in the New York Post, Queens is bringing in visitors by the droves. But instead of a quick trip, consider the following four reasons why you should get a moving truck rental and make your Queens visit more permanent.
1. The Cultural Diversity
If you want to experience cultures from around the world—all in one place—then choose Queens, NY as your next home. You can become a regular to NYC’s largest Chinatown or enjoy authentic Thai, Indian, or even Lebanese cuisines any day of the week.
2. The Arts
Home of the Queens Museum, the Sculpture Center, PS1 Contemporary Art Center, and the Museum of the Moving Image, Queens has its corner in the NYC arts’ scene. Plus, you can visit art galleries, enjoy live music, and take a dance class at one of many smaller venues throughout the area.
3. The Food
Okay, we mentioned the food earlier…but it’s just that good. If you’re a foodie or a fan of diverse dishes, then move to Queens. You can find cuisine from all over the world, at every price point. Like to cook for yourself? Get fresh, local produce or enjoy a cooking demonstration at the Forrest Hills Greenmarket.
4. Cost of Living
In comparison to Manhattan and Brooklyn neighborhoods like DUMBO, Curbed NY says that Queens is probably your best bet to rent an affordable, one-bedroom apartment in New York City.
