Every time I have moved in NYC (and those times have been many) there is always one very important question to ask before even considering the place.
Sure, you can ask about the cost, utilities, pets and other trivial things but let’s get down to the nitty gritty... because there is only one really important question, and that is....
Where is the closest grocery store??
You see there are many places in NYC where you have to walk 15-20 minutes for a grocery store. Some people even have to take a subway or god forbid...a bus!
And though some would argue that you can get your groceries delivered and it's not a big deal, these people obviously don't understand how often I go to the grocery store.
So when my current apartment building boasted a grocery store in the building well... I was sold.
