New York’s tech community will be further developed to one day rival Silicon Valley. For those tech junkies wanting to try out New York for a few months without committing to a lease agreement or paying any money upfront, there is the option of co-living in NYC.

Dip Your Toes into the NYC Experience

The above are just a few places to visit when you are in NYC, especially if you are “geek of nature”. There are countless others which are too many to name. If you are planning on relocating to the Big Apple, you may choose to go the route of co-living first, while you make up your mind.

Research various companies that offer you good value for money. You will share common areas like the bathroom, lounge and kitchen but most places offer en-suites in each bedroom and come with a host of great amenities which are covered in the fee. These homes often group like-minded people together, so you may find yourself in the company of people who share the same interest in technology and the digital age as you do.
