you've posted this shit again and again and seem to really like urban/futuristic landscapes and architectures. that persistence is pretty impressive man, and i love sci-fi stuff too.

i was raised and live in tokyo so its landscapes look a bit boring to me, but still i feel that night landscapes from shuto freeway are actually futuristic. its not a tourist spot but the most futuristic one. if you came here, you should manage to drive along the freeway.

Besides the influx of hipsters it hasn't changed all that much. Crime has decreased a lot from the 90's though so some good change did happen. And yeah it's expensive as fuck, as someone who used to live around Midtown I was paying 3.5k a month for a studio apartment.
>>
>>53681056
>3.5k a month for a studio apartment

Also it isn't that bad with the hipsters imo, I live in a town literally made out of students and the big majority is hipster to some degree. I seriously prefer this over socially challenged neighbourhoods as long as they don't become too much of a cliche.

also I really love your picture

I get the hype for the factore repurposing, it can be really comfy. Reminds me of how they turned an old industrial complex in my hometown in Luxembourg into a hipster quartier full of museums and university faculties.
Sadly there aren't any decent pictures of the project, it's pretty big for this region tho

Depends on your job. When I first got here I had literally zero job experience so I had the shittiest of jobs. However once you get on your feet any half decent job should pay more than enough to afford your own place. Prices are going up though so you'll probably have a harder time of making it now. Apartments below 1k a month are basically non existant, but if you live alone you should be able to afford it. Haven't checked on it in a while, but I think Hudson Yard is coming along fine; I can't wait for it to be finished though.

It's weird, but most people actually have many thoughts in common and just never talk about it because they really think it might make oneself look autistic if the person starts talking about it. It's like the floor is lava or like you imagining as a kid a man running next to the highway trying to compete with your car. Only since the internet became a mass media anonymous people started talking about it, and soon everyone saw that many things are really common in everyone's heads

In what way? I've lived here since I was 11, so growing up and spending my teenage years here was pretty nice.

People aren't generally that out going, but you will find your group of friends in no time. Food is getting better and better here, especially price wise, as a port city we get a lot of Asian influence so it's fun going to all the little Chinese/Phillipeno/Vietnamese/Japanese restaurants.

Summer in Seattle is GOAT btw, I'm sure you've heard that before, rest of the year the weather is absolute crap though, so I hope you enjoy the rain.

We are 30 minutes from the mountains, and an hour from surfing, so if you like to do either of those things then you'll enjoy it.

Price wise it costs a LOT to live here, especially since Amazon is now occupying South Lake Union.

Well I'm American so pay here, generally speaking, is low relative to what I'm used to. Income issues seem the same as everywhere else right now. Few fields with jobs available so young people are a bit hopeless. Then again my school is communications focused so I'm biased. I know one girl who works as a nurse (4 year degree) and she earns about as much as I would on minimum wage back home. Just about every girl I've talked to wants to become a flight attendant because its the best paying profession that they're aware of. It can be a bit grim imo.

I think the standard of living here is good though. The median quality of life here is about the same as where I came from, even if life day to day is fairly different.

Taipei actually gets pretty cold during the winter. Maybe as low as 55 fahrenheit at night.

They are trying to. China mainland is the biggest market. Taiwanese creative industries are still pretty small though.

Just a typical Spanish coastal town, but oddly pleasant to live in. Not pretty at all, though, but at least somewhat dense and urban.

>public transportation/walking downtown

Getting better, the lightrail is in as well (basically above ground subway), buses run all over, I personally use both everyday.

>is the rain as miserable as they say

Shits like a monsoon season sometimes, but mostly its just crummy mist/cloudy days.
>>
>>53691262
>light rail
>above ground subway
In your dreams. I'm fine with any attempts to put in rail in America but most light rail projects are fucking trash. Not sure how yours is though. Honestly the cost of infrastructure is just so completely insane. The feds need to step in and just hire Cedar Point to build roller coasters along major thurofares. It would be cheaper and more exciting to boot.

>>53691576
>In your dreams.

Was just using laymans terms, but yeah, obviously not as expansive as a real subway system but in theory the practice is similar.

Ok ok fair enough. I'm just really opposed to cheaply done light rail. We have one going in in Detroit and it's gonna be just terrible.

I'm reading a book on Kowloon Walled City. It definitely looked like a dump, but it's strangely fascinating.
I like the idea of living underground, without a defined level of reference you are forced to use if you want to go from one block to another, and where residential, commercial, etc. place are mixed. Of course actually living in such a place would probably be less glamorous.

What's your salary? I'm in college and I wanna move to NYC as soon as I'm ready to hit the workforce. Based on cost of living calculations, it seems like it would be impossible to live in NYC and save money if your salary is 60k or below, even if you live frugally
