Any moms in here that are NY-based. I want to hear about your experience. I’m wondering if I should move my family. 🙃🙃

Great question. I’m curious about the worst of it. Obviously being a parent is difficult, but does being in the city (or even the burbs) add unnecessary challenges? Am I insane for wanting to be there? I currently live in TX and everything is so homogeneous. It’s nice to raise my kids in the predictability of it all, but would love more culture, sights, smells, etc.


What specifically do you want to know? I have a 2 year old and a baby on the way

I’m not a mom but I grew up in a big city and had a great childhood. I have friends in NY who have kids, and the kids are cool and smart and sweet and confident. NY is tough (and expensive), but it’s also great. However, one of the things you’d probably need to adjust are your expectations of space. Apartments in NY are much smaller than a house you would get in TX, and while I believe kids adapt to anything, the parents who are downsizing would need to be flexible in terms of fitting a family into a small space, and rethinking what aspects of a home are non-negotiable. I guess if you’re used to getting around in cars rather than public transportation, that might take some readjustment too.
