Now a day’s solar energy is very famous in Tampa and the rest of Florida, as we know Florida is the 2nd highest electricity paid the state in US. Then why we still spending too much money on paying huge electricity bill if have the option to install solar panels at our home. It's really worth to install as its affordable and comes in our budget. To knowing more about Residential Solar panels services cost visit solar cost https://solartechelec.com/solar-costs/

Tampa is really over crowded. The roads are not meant to accommodate this many people. Rent and housing is very expensive. Food is expensive and wages are low. All in all Tampa is an over priced hot mess.

Rent in NY is very high, in Manhattan (city) a studio is about $1800 1br $2200+ In Brooklyn (1 if the 5 boroughs) a studio is about $1000+ 1br $1700+ 2br $2300+

All insurance are high, car insurance runs about $300-$400 monthly for experienced drivers

Food I believe runs the same everywhere, but for my 2 person (my 7 yr old daughter and I) household I spend about $80 weekly

Hi,

I am considering moving to NYC with my wife and 2 years old daughter.

How much does it cost for living there including rent, food, insurance and any other expenses.

Thank you.
