As a Parisian, I am used to seeing people admiring my beautiful city and dreaming about living there one day. Well, I lived in Paris for years, but this year I decided to move in New York.
For us, New York is just as attractive and I was so excited to finally live here. I actually loved this city and living in Midtown West with an amazing view from the 37th floor is just CRAZY ! But……… I should’ve think about it twice before leaving Paris that fast, because I already hate a lot of things.
When I decided to move in I wanted to live on the top of the building so that I could have that crazy view. I just didn’t realized that I would actually feel the height in the elevator. I’m still not used to those 37 floors.
The streets are MATHS !
One thing you might know is that most of the streets don’t actually have names but number. And as one of the most « mathophobe » human being of Earth it is pretty hard to get used to this.
Food EVERYWHERE !
There is litterally food EVERYWHERE ! Hot-Dogs at every single corner, I mean why ? I will be there for a while so please stop tempting me.
RATS AND ROACHES !
Certainly one of the things I hate the most in here. Paris and other cities are known for having rats.. just like New York, but I just didn’t know that there were also HUGE ROACHES that fly. I have to download the NYC Roach Map and i am now avoiding all the neighbourhoods in dark red.
Grabbing a cab is SPORT!
Something I don’t really understand in New York are the taxi driver. First of all they drive so fast that they just don’t see you, there are almost no “Taxi Line” and sometimes they’re free but they just don’t stop and nod at you.
