Internationally known for being home to the most famous city in the world, the state of New York is also the fourth most-populated state in America, and it was one of the 13 colonies that initially formed the United States. With over 19 million residents, the state of New York has a diverse geography and an even more diverse population.

New York State is home to several of the best universities in the world, and it is one of the six biggest contributors to the United States’ economy, generating over $1.5 trillion dollars in gross state product in 2018 alone.


Pros and Cons

No matter where you’re moving to, the one thing you need to keep in mind is that there will be pros and cons of living in that place. Even if you move to Norway, also known as the best country to live on the planet, you’ll find a thing or two that are considered as disadvantages. The state of New York is no different: here are 7 pros and 7 cons about moving to New York!


  1. Arts and culture: if you’re an art lover or a culture-inclined individual, New York State has more than enough attractions that will please you.
  2. Distinct seasons: the Empire State, as it is known, experiences the four seasons very distinctly, which is a positive aspect for many people.
  3. Low crime rate: as surprising as it may sound, the state of New York actually has a lower crime rate than most states, ranking #12 in terms of public safety.
  4. Educational institutions: the state of New York is home to several of the best universities in the world and to some of the best high schools in the country.
  5. Healthcare: those who are considering moving to the state of New York should be aware that this state is one of the best in terms of healthcare access and it is the second-best state for public health.
  6. Natural environment: surprisingly enough, the state of New York ranks #6 in terms of pollution, meaning that there are low pollution-related health risks in the state — especially outside of the NYC metro area.
  7. Celebrity sightings: while most people may think that celebrities are only spotted in New York City, that’s actually far from the truth: celebrities own property all across the state of New York.


  1. Cost of living: as great of a place as it is, the state of New York was actually considered the third most expensive state to live in the United States.
  2. Harsh winter: the entire East Coast of the United States is known for having particularly harsh weather during wintertime, and it’s no different in the Empire State.
  3. Job opportunities: being one of the most populous states in the U.S., New York still has a lot of room for improvement when it comes to the job market. Its unemployment rate is 8.4, which is higher than the United States average rate of 6.7.
  4. Real estate: as we mentioned, the state of New York is one of the most expensive places in the United States, with a price per square foot of over $1,000!
  5. Opportunity: on top of being expensive, the state of New York ranks #35 in terms of economic opportunity, which means that upward social mobility is pretty difficult in this state.
  6. Traffic: living in a state that has over 19 million residents means that, naturally, there will be a lot of traffic, especially if you move to the NYC metro area.
  7. Taxes: one of the biggest downsides about New York State is that it has the highest total tax burden in the United States at 12.28%.
