NEW YORK b>
Why renting an apartment in New York? Eclectic, noisy, cosmopolitan, New York is probably the most world-changing city. It is the nerve center of fashion, finance, politics, music and culture and for many, is the capital of the world. The first time you travel to New York is like if you were in a movie: iron exterior stairs that cover the facades of most buildings, the yellow cabs and youth playing basketball courts in the middle of Harlem, become New York in a unique city, with images and moments never seen in another city. With lots of contrasts, there is a neighborhood for each moment: from Manhattan with executives walk quickly to the Bronx, the birthplace of multiculturalism.
