Miami is paradise........ or is it?
I have been in Miami since 2017. I went to U Miami and was lucky enough to get a job for a fund in Miami. I love this city. The downtown area is sweet with lots to do, the beaches are nice, the water is always warm, the golf courses are nice, my apartment is brand new and only $1,700 a month. My office is right on the water and I have an amazing view of all the cruise ships coming into Biscayne Bay...
On the surface it seems like Miami is the place to be. But somewhere deep down I feel like it isn't. For example the culture here is strange. I don't want to paint the whole city with one brush but for the 5 years I have been here it has seemed like more people are focused on their image, what clothes they wear, what car they drive, what Rolex they have vs growing in their career.
Deep down I feel like it is time for me to make the move to New York. There's been a lot of talk about wall st moving to South Florida but I really haven't seen this at all. I think New York will always be the place to be for young people in finance to really grow in their careers and expand their network.
Would it be stupid of me to leave Miami?? A lot of people dream of living here but to be honest I think I'm over it and I need a new adventure.
