I’m thinking about giving up my NYC apartment and putting everything in storage. I’ve been staying with my parents for the past few months while paying wasted rent on my place. Does anyone have recommendations for a good storage unit in NYC? Also movers?

I actually have a storage unit in LIC that should be available in February or March if you are still interested then!

Where’s your apartment? I need a temporary place and don’t want to sign a lease

UWS!

I used two task rabbiters for my move from Hell’s Kitchen to a NJ storage. I’m at Good Friend storage in north bergen and found it good enough in terms of price, location and service/cleanliness to recommend it to two other friends!

If you are paying movers, get a storage unit in Queens or Long Island - if will be way less for more space.

MakeSpace storage! It’s awesome- they come pick up from your apartment for free and drop off is only 49$. You’re locked in just for 3 months. Super reasonable.

They handle the furniture, but send you boxes, hangers etc for clothes and other small stuff.

What are some things you wish you had known earlier or by age 30? In some ways, I feel like I'm late in the game. See more 👇🏻

As in, they could be easily avoided with a “please keep in mind X” or something like that. Thoughts?

I made a big no no when joining the company and did not negotiate the salary before accepting. Should I informally chat about future compensation to my boss? He’s a pretty laid back guy and I think he may be flexible with me.

Kind of niche question here but under NY CPLR, if a plaintiff files a MTD/MSJ, and then the defendants file opposition papers containing information that the court had previously ordered to be kept under seal, would you a) file a reply asking to seal/strike the opposition papers or b) file a separate OTSC since you’re now seeking additional relief not sought in the original motion?
