What To Take When Moving From Manhattan To Brooklyn

Making the move from Manhattan to Brooklyn might not seem like a big deal, but once you’re there it has the tendency to feel like a world away. Brooklyn goes to sleep much earlier than Manhattan, so life across the bridge can be a little bit different.

Moving and storage in Brooklyn can be easier than in Manhattan, if you’re bringing the right things with you. You’re headed for a change for sure, but moving in NYC can be seamless if you do it correctly.


Bring Your Bike

There is a reason that you’ll see so many dedicated cyclists in Brooklyn…it tends to be an easier form of transportation than the subway. Rides on the train that take up to an hour can easily be completed on a bicycle in twenty to twenty-five minutes.

Clearly, having a bike will help to get you where you need to go faster. You can bring your existing bike, buy one, or use the Citi Bike system! Either way, you’ll find that biking in Brooklyn is much easier than biking in Manhattan.

It’s not as stressful, and most of the bikers in Brooklyn are pretty skilled and abide by safety and traffic rules. It won’t be long before you’re a pro.


Everything You Own, And More

Brooklyn tends to have a bit more space than Manhattan, with a more laid back vibe. If you’re craving some new apartment decor to go with your new Brooklyn digs, don’t be afraid to bring it along. Your building is likely to have storage, and if it doesn’t, there is probably a unit within close affordable proximity. Moving from Manhattan to Brooklyn means you absolutely won’t have to downsize, unless you want to!


A Friendly Attitude

It’s easier to play off a distant demeanor in Manhattan. Life is a little faster, a little busier. However, in a Brooklyn neighborhood, you’ll find that your neighbors rarely ignore you. You’ll fall into the swing of friendly waves and a chorus of good mornings when you walk through your halls out onto the street.

Obviously, a great attitude isn’t something you have to store, but it’s nice to need it. Brooklyn is friendly and neighborhood oriented. You’re certain to love every second of life here.

When you’re ready to make the move, give Simply Moving a call to help you move your apartment and, if necessary, your storage unit!

    Great group of MOVERS.

    The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

    Dear Stefan, I want to tell the public how wonderful your company has treated me. Has stored my possessions and has delivered everything with the utmost of care. Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!

    P.S. when I got the delivery we thought there was an antique shelf missing but I found that behind some boxes after the truck left…So I have it all and am filled with joy…
