Take your jacket, or did you never get it back? Might come in handy around all the NY slags

Ultimately though thats a once in a lifetime opportunity, one which not many people would even stand a chance of getting. In my opinion it's a no brainer, get your shit packed say your goodbyes (for now) and go get yourself some mixed race chicks.

Do it, my pal had training there for 3 months and said he ate out nearly every day. Endless choice of great eateries.

I have watched numerous television programs which take place in new york and so can say with certainty you should go

If you have to ask you should probably stay at home

You can split hairs all day about how the club scene sucks compared to Europe but the food is cheaper and better yaddayadda, you'd be an idiot not to go at least for a year or two. Look just outside Williamsburg e.g. Greenpoint for semi-reasonably priced hipstur friendly housing, or Park Slope if you're a baller Cool

how so, particularly when it comes to The UK? I would think the poor had a better chance at an opportunity to make something of themselves here in the US if the worked EXTREMELY hard

Anyone know what the house scene is like in NY?

Better than here.. At least it was when I've been..

Not sure why everyone is loving NY so much and saying I'm a dick for even asking. Ive been a few times and always thought it wasnt as good as London. NY is a lot more expensive, even US brands cost more out there than in the UK. Food is good, but 25% tip/tax on everything means its not cheap either. Rent is painful in NY, much more so than London. The house scene is no where near as big and clubs seem to shut a lot earlier. I get its a good opportunity but so is London and I'm already there!
