    So I moved into a new place today. Its a studio in Manhattan. Ive lived in Manhattan and Brooklyn my whole life, (except for a brief time in London). I am just excited and wanted to share this with my BHW family.

    Especially considering that the apartment is being paid for through IM. And a good chunk if it BH ;)

    So here are some pics. Its 650 sq feet, not big, but couldnt afford much more considering how much it is. (Over $2k a month)

    It may not seem amazing but if you guys had any idea how much it costs, I think many of you would be very surprised, but the upper east side of Manhattan is very expensive.

    PS
    Forgive the mess my gf's clothes are all over and we are unpacking
    I also just paid for and set up a trip to Costa Rica in August :) and will document that as well, again all paid for through IM. This fall I should be trying to set up a full time office, and of course you guys will be updated on that.

    Again sorry if this seems like im trying to brag, Im just very excited and wanted to share with you guys. And maybe this will give some of you guys some inspiration and motivation to keep working.

    I will also update again when the apartment is looking nice and all set up.

    Congrats bro. I grew up in Manhattan and my parents are still there. I moved to queens about 2 years ago after getting married. When I left the city I used to pay $950/month for a 1 bedroom apartment on the upper east side.

    Wolfdog, one of the best things about New York City is that ANYTHING you need to get, you can find it right there.

    Beautiful home you have, vivalafeva! The view out the window in the first picture isn't the best, but the inside is pretty awesome. Enjoy the unpacking, I know how that goes.

    I actually have a pretty good view one of the windows is blocked, but the others have about 5 blocks of unblocked view.

    When I update the thread I will show better pics of the view.

    Thanks everyone, Im pretty excited about it.

    Damn that's some sexy apartment that you got yourself there, all nice, comfy and warm, Congrats! Good Luck! & Have Fun! :D
    I was just wondering how old are you? If you don't mind me asking? Oh and one important question :p since you've lived both in London and in Manhattan which do you prefer and why? I'm very curious because I'm bored of London and would love to move out somewhere when I'm older.

    Well im 21, and again to the people saying its messy, the apartment isnt done being set up yet, just moved in yesterday.

    I like NYC more than London, although London is great. I never really lived there for more than 3 months. There is honestly no city like new york city.

    I also would like to say, some of my income is from my offline business actually, not just IM. I own a clothing line.
