Today, we discuss one little part of making it in the Big Apple!


Kristy has lived in New York for awhile.

She knows that New Yorkers aren’t always patient.  But she also knows that they’re usually friendly and open to meeting new people – maybe more so than where you live.


Here are Christie’s 3 top tips for meeting new friends in New York:

  • Know that you’re not alone! Many New Yorkers are transplants – they were born somewhere else and moved to the city. That means they’re as open to meeting new friends as you are.
  • Explore online community groups and meet-up events. With so many people in one place, there are likely to be many others you can connect with.
  • If you sense a connection, don’t be afraid to invite the person to do something. Go for coffee or check out some part of the city together. This might seem odd where you live, but it’s normal in a city full of transplants!


Is it easy to meet new friends where you live?

Are people there like New Yorkers?
