I am a born and raised Manhattanite and NYU student living on the Upper East Side. I love to document my escapades in the city. All photos are taken by me. Enjoy!

f-meharry asked: Since you live in New York, I was wondering if you could answer some questions? I'm only a junior in highschool, but it is my dream to move to New York Ciry (or somewhere close/just outside the city) and get a job in the fashion industry. Could you give me any advice on living there? Also, I know that New York is suuuuuper expensive to live in, but would I be better off renting a regular apartment or a studio apartment/loft? Love your blog btw!

Dear f-meharry,

I think that if you are aiming to work in the fashion industry and want to live in Manhattan that you might be better off renting an apartment with a roommate or two. Living with a roommate can be beneficial because you cut the costs of rent in half (or more), but can still live in a very nice neighborhood. Whereas, if you are by yourself in a studio, you are the only one pulling all the weight when it comes to paying for rent and that can be limiting when it comes to looking for a space in your desired location.

I hope this helped you!

Good luck in your future plans!

Sincerely,

NYE
