No offense to our newest "global ambassador" Taylor Swift, but when it comes to advice for New York newbies, there are some things you *might* not know if you moved straight from Nashville into a $20 million Tribeca penthouse. Things like how to work out for $10 or less a month, spotting the BS when a broker lists a Bed-Stuy apartment as "Williamsburg-adjacent," finding a roommate who isn't a nutjob (because you can't afford to live alone yet), and how to make any landlord love you (this is key—trust).

And for that, we're here to help. So welcome to Welcome to New York week, where we'll be diving into everything you need to know when you first arrive in the city—and everything we wish someone had told us.
