Welcome

Hello! I’m Josh Pugh and I arrived in New York on January 12, 2017, from Adelaide, South Australia (read more about me if you’d like) with a suitcase and not much more.

While I found lots of resources across the internet to help with my move, I couldn’t find a reliable central point with information about the basics; so I thought I’d fix that.

This site is a compilation of answers to frequently asked questions I’ve found on forums, Facebook pages and from my own experience. The content is always changing and evolving as I learn more and as helpful people submit updates. To help you, all pages include “Last updated” dates right at the bottom.

Information is broken down into three sections.

If you think something isn’t quite right, have a hot tip, or want to share a coffee (beer) please do email me at [email protected] – I love a chat. There are also forms at the bottom of every page that will let you send feedback.
