   I’m thinking about movaing to New York City. First, there’s always something happening in New York. There are conxerts, museums, and sports. I could eatch my favorite team, the New York Mets. Next, it’s easy get a job in New York and the salaries are high. My friend is a waiter in a nice restaurant and he makes about
$400 a week. Finally, I would feel more at home because there is a Thai commumity in the city. There are Thai grocery stores, Thai restaurant, and Thai social clubs. Im going to live with my friend in New York for a month. If I find a job, Im going to move there.

  I live in New York City and I’m thinking about moving to the suburbs. First, the rents in New York are very expensive. My wife and I and two children live in a one-bedroom apartment. The rent is $1,200 a month. Next, the traffic is impossible. Sometimes it takes me an hour to get to work. And finally, life here is too busy and too fast. The streets and sidewalks are always crowed. People are always in a hurry, too bust to stop and say “Hello.” I’m going to look for a job in a smaller city or town.
