The Skirt: Seven Things You Need To Move To New York City

"The Skirt" is an ongoing series in which Four Pins' resident lady friend, Rachel Seville, becomes the most important woman in your life.

So you want to be a writer. So you have a perfect body and a Botticelli face. So you have some cool paintings you could sell. So you want to make a movie. So you want to carry a bunch of garment bags 40 blocks for someone for no pay. So you want to write tweets for a living. So you want to move to New York.

If you’ve made your desires public, everyone’s probably trying to give you advice about how to do it and when, and how Westchester is the new Brooklyn, and how if you’re going to move to New York, you need super rich parents. Au contraire! Above, I share seven rad secrets to make your Gotham Dream a reality.

Rachel Seville is a writer living in New York who believes in miracles. Read her blog, Pizza Rulez, here and follow her on Twitter here.
