Expectations vs. Reality of Traveling to NYC

New York was always famous for its culture, tourist destinations, and iconic landmarks. You might have seen giant billboards and dazzling lights of New York on the screen. However, can you be very sure about what you see in films or what others talk about NYC is reliable? Some might exaggerate the beauty of the city, and some others would speak less about the beauty of the city. Either way, we cannot determine which is valid unless we see it ourselves. Reality is what we see!

Most of the tourists walk into NYC, having an image of a city with clean roads. But they are shocked to see unreliable, dirty subway system, and rats on their path. Moreover, will you believe if it was said that New York is one of the most polluted cities in the USA? Nothing can be said unless you see it. But don’t get it wrong, population and high tourist rate might be a reason behind the city becoming dirty. However, you shouldn’t imagine the worst city because it is not!

Time Square

Time Square in New York City is a prominent place for tourists. It represents the culture of the city. Moreover, Time Square represents the Big Apple. Even if everyone who visits the town wants to spend more time in Time Square, it doesn’t happen that way due to the packed crowd. However, it is not the only place NYC has to offer you. You can enjoy a different kind of experience in areas such as Escape the Room NYCthe height line, and the urban park


Since many tourist attractions are located in Manhattan, the visitors plan to spend their days in Manhattan. There are places such as the central park, Rockefeller, and statue of Liberty, Times Square, Empire state building, and many more places. But in reality, it’s not only Manhattan which offers all the tourist attractions. You can find more places to explore out of Manhattan. Areas such as Brooklyn, Staten Island, and The Bronx will provide you with many exciting places to entertain, too.

Central Park

The central park holds a central place among tourist attractions. The fresh air, fauna, and flora of the park are most appreciated and talked about. So everyone who plans to visit the central park, expects a calm environment to spend the time smoothly. However, it is a city that invites a lot of tourists into it. So there is no doubt that every tourist attraction will be crowded than you expect. It’s not going to be calm like you “believe.”

That’s why Città Sant’Angelo is among the 5 cities in the world where to go to live (according to Forbes)

Leave your work and go to live abroad. Where is it? In Città Sant’Angelo, for example. The council started from Forbes , which drew up a ranking of the places where it would be better to stabilize, since they offer a good quality of life at low cost.

The US magazine has rewarded the town of Abruzzo with an excellent sixth place, leaving behind its best known destinations, such as Bali and Playa del Carmen, Mexico. With its 15 thousand inhabitants and a temperate climate, Città Sant’Angelo represents for Forbes “a little corner of paradise”.

Below, the complete list, written by the journalist Laura Begley Bloom in the January issue, dialoguing with Kathleen Peddicord, editor of Live and Invest Overseas .

1. Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon dominates the ranking, thanks to its elegance, its centuries-old history and its sea views, comparable to works of art. A show for which a low ticket price is expected. Living here, according to Forbes estimates, could cost around $ 1,300 a month.

2. Cali, Colombia

Pleasant climate, warm afternoons and cool breeze in the evening: Cali gets the silver medal, thanks to its inhabitants, friendly, pleasant and always ready for conversation.

3. Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic


The capital of the Dominican Republic boasts a city liveliness, made up of crowded ports and roads always in turmoil. The influx of tourists has led to the construction of various infrastructures, which offer modern comforts. For food and rent, a couple could spend $ 1450 a month.

4. San Pedro, Belize

A small city, with expats from all over the world, to create together the life that everyone has come to look for here. A tiny island in Beliza, where prices can be a bargain compared to other Caribbean locations.

5. Saint-Chinian, France

Provence is famous, but expensive, says Forbes. This city offers a valid alternative at a reasonable price and is described as “a city in style ‘Beauty and the Beast'”. For wine lovers, it is good to know that the industry is growing here. The inhabitants, friendly, are the additional value.
