going to FB NYC over MPK

So i have a new grad offer with FB starting in may and its in MPK. Im wondering with the recent news of FB getting a lot of office space in Hudson Yards whether i can try to go to NYC?

I interned in NYC for a summer and rlly like the fact that i can have a great social and dating life, meet new ppl, not need a car, and i think my TC will go farther in NYC than SF.

If i go to SF i assume ill get a studio to myself for $2500 a month, no culture, need a car, more expensive COL, few women to meet/date, homogenous tech bro culture. If im wrong pls tell me, my only insight is from what ive read about SF, whereas i experienced NYC as an intern.

So how likely is it for a non returning intern to be able to go to NYC?

    You probably won't get a studio in SF. More like Menlo Park. Else be prepped for a 3h commute everyday.

      Sorry not familiar with Bay Area. Yeah if I go to mpk office I’d want a studio as close as possible, Idc if it’s 3k a month I don’t want a far commute and I want my own place.

    HQ beats satellite offices for early career employees.

    Median rent in nyc might be cheaper, but nyc has much greater inventory of complete dumps. If you filter for apartments that you actually want to live in, then nyc and sf are equally expensive.

      Only sort of true, there's some pretty solid 2500 ish studios here.

      Overall I think of it as being about the same or slightly more expensive than SF depending on how you spend.

  • The real comparison is NYC vs MPK since you have the commute otherwise
