Moving in Park Slope Brooklyn
Moving with ease in Park Slope Brooklyn

With a distinctively small town feel, Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood is a favorite hub for young & hip families and polished professionals. This family friendly neighborhood attracts residents seeking to make the move for their kids and burgeoning families who take advantage of Park Slope’s fabulous Public School 321, local attractions like the Prospect Park Zoo and Lakeside’s year round skating facility, and importantly “Dog Beach,” where man’s best friend can take a dip and show off their best doggy paddle.

Between offering outdoor concerts during the summer (many of which are free!) and a laid back nightlife scene, restaurants that attract New Yorkers from the surrounding neighborhoods, and outdoor sports enthusiasts eager to enjoy Prospect Park’s green space (which some claim is better than Central Park!) there’s something for everyone in Park Slope.

Located in the northwest area of Brooklyn, Park Slope was named for its location on Prospect Park’s western slope. Historically, Park Slope’s Washington Park was the home to the Brooklyn Atlantics, later renamed the Brooklyn Dodgers. During the early 20th Century the Brooklyn Dodgers had crosstown rivalries with the New York Yankees and New York Giants. Years later, the Brooklyn Dodgers would be bought out and sent across the country to the West Coast, becoming what is now known as the Los Angeles Dodgers. Long considered one of NYC’s most desirable neighborhoods due to its safety, green space, easy public transit access, nightlife & dining options, high quality public schools, creative capital, and family friendliness, it’s easy to see why New Yorkers who move to Brooklyn’s Park Slope and become attached to this thriving neighborhood. “The Other Fifth Avenue” and Seventh Avenue are Park Slope’s main commercial streets, known for the fabulous array of dining and shopping options.

Packing for your moving

Whether looking to shop, dine, dance, or play, Park Slope has something for everyone.

Park Slope’s dining options feature cuisines from around the world, there’s something for every palate. Dale Talde’s eponymous restaurant is home to the fine cuisine of one of Top Chef’s favorite culinary wizards. Featuring playful Asian American fare, Talde can often be found in the kitchen overseeing his delicious, well priced, and innovative food. And for those looking to catch a late night bite, head on over to Blue Ribbon Brooklyn, a restaurant featuring a creative combination of haute cuisine and down-home eats. Blue Ribbon is a favorite amongst those looking for a delicious meal after a night on the town, but is also open early so early birds can dine in style as well. Thistle Hill Tavern is another local favorite, with a New American menu and cozy interior, perfect for date night.

Thistle Hill Tavern, like Talde’s, features another celebrity chef, Rebecca Weitzman, famous for winning Food Network’s Chopped so you know the culinary choices in Park Slope are top notch. (zip code 11215, 11217)

If you’re looking for a great Italian restaurant, al di là is the place to go. Just be warned: they don’t take reservations and the wait for this nearly decade old Park Slope staple can be long, but residents say it’s well worth the wait for chef Anna Klinger’s Italian masterpieces. For those who don’t like waiting hours to eat, Convivum Osteria is a fabulous option. This Italian restaurant features a delicious menu, with a beautiful atmosphere that makes one feel like they’re eating in a festive antiques shop. For a delicious weekend brunch head over to Mediterranean themed Miriam for the usual brunch offerings and some next level choices at this homey eatery. If you’re in the mood for something quick and easy–not to mention healthy–check out Purbird’s casual and reasonably priced menu. Healthy eaters will also love Park Slope’s famous food coop. However, if you don’t like the idea of working at the coop for your fresh produce, you can head over to Third Avenue for the local Whole Foods, but know it’s in neighboring Gowanus. Park Slope also has their own Farmers Market on Wednesdays during the warmer months.

professional movers

It goes without saying that professional movers make any move easier.  They know what they’re doing, they know where to go, and best of all: they do the heavy lifting.  But what about trying to do it on your own?  Should you even attempt it?  If you’re trying to justify moving alone, whether it’s to or from a building with a doorman, a 4-story walk up, or a cozy townhouse, we’re going to convince you that there’s no “I” in move!

Moving to an Apartment Building

If you’re lucky enough to afford an apartment in New York City, then you deserve to move into it with ease.  When you’re moving to a smaller apartment building with only one elevator, that’s going to create a lot of issues.  Waiting for it to come up and down and only being able to cram some of your stuff in each time is going to take forever, and you need all the power you can get.  Multiple team members mean you’ll always be ready to move another load.  Larger apartment buildings will typically have more than one elevator, so use the extra strength to your advantage!  By hiring professional movers, you can have several people making trips at the same time, expediting the moving process.  Not to mention the fact that moving hard objects like furniture and crates can damage an elevator’s interior.  Professional movers know how to get in and out of your building without damaging it.

Moving to a Walk Up

Yikes.  The laws in New York are changing to accommodate those with disabilities, but many buildings 5 stories or less do not have elevators simply because they were never required to.  Whether you’re moving in or out of a walk up, it’s not going to be easy.  This is really where the muscle behind professional movers comes in.  Sure, you can ask your friends to lend a helping hand, but so many trips up and down could make you enemies by the end of the day.

Moving to a Townhouse

A townhouse may seem less daunting than an apartment building due to the sheer size difference, but don’t let them fool you: you’re still going to have to make a lot of trips up the stairs.  Professional movers won’t just leave your stuff on the ground floor to deal with later (which we all might be a little inclined to do after a long day), but they’ll actually take your stuff up to the floor you want it in.

No matter what your move is, do it right, do it easily, and do it with Divine Moving.

When is moving your place of business a good idea? Many factors go into choosing the location of your company. Perhaps you are a startup working out of your garage and want to move into an actual office space, or maybe your current office isn’t meeting the needs of unexpected growth. Whatever kind of business you’re running, the location of your work space is one of the most important factors to consider. So when exactly is it time to think about moving?

Factors to Relocating Your NYC Business

Foot Traffic

One of the most obvious reasons for many types of businesses, especially in New York, is foot traffic. If people aren’t seeing your restaurant or boutique, you will most likely not get as many customers. Sure, people can look up your business online and locate you instantly, but attracting new customers that don’t already know about you relies heavily on foot traffic. Expanding into new markets and demographics is something that’s always good to be thinking about, so if you’re not getting the sales you desire, consider changing your location.

Talent of Employees

Another important factor in any business is attracting the right kind of talent to work for you. You of course want the best employees to help grow your business, so relocating to an area that hosts the right kind of people is essential. If your company relies on tech savvy employees, you want to be in an area that will be convenient for people that specialize in that field to travel to. If you’re a trendy restaurant or shop, relocating to an area known to house young hipsters will be beneficial to both your workforce and your customer base. Having a New York business can really help as this thriving city full of intelligent, stylish adults with a mind for business.

Consider Size

If you have a growing business, you need to consider the size of your office. As you become more successful, you might need to hire more people. Keeping your employees happy relies heavily on having a happy work environment. Nobody wants to work in a cramped and overcrowded office, so having enough space is paramount. You might also need to consider the size of your office if you rely heavily on equipment. New technology often creates space issues, and you don’t want to under-serve your growth.

By identifying the needs of your business, you can determine the location that is best suited for you and your employees. Moving is certainly stressful, but planning things out to fit your needs will benefit you in the long run. Divine Moving Company has a history of successful commercial moves and satisfied customers. Our full service company has what you need to take your business to its next home. Feel free to contact their New York City storage facility about moving options to request your quote.

Everyone knows that although New York City is a city where opportunities are vast, moving there is no easy job. From the consistent traffic to understanding the grid system, there really are no other cities like it, but there also aren’t a lot of NYC moving companies like us at Divine Moving.
We’ve made it our goal to make moving in NYC a breeze, whether it’s by providing custom storage spaces to keep some items in, or moving the contents from one apartment to another.

However, even though we can do a majority of the hard work, we can’t do it all which is why there are some tips we’ve compiled to help make moving from one location to another easier and less stressful.

NYC Moving Tips: The Things You Might Not Have Considered

  • Pick the professionals over your friends

    Although it may seem like a good idea to enlist in the help of your friends because the labor will be cheaper, you’re really putting your stuff at risk and you’re extending the entire moving process. Moving with the help of your friends will not only cause a ton of distraction, but also fights and potential damages to your belongings.

    When you invest in a professional NYC moving company, you’ll also get movers insurance which will help protect anything that may get a little dinged up in the process. So, spend the money. It’ll be far more worth it than looking at your dented bedframe that Rob and Tim couldn’t get up the stairs.

  • Buy all the boxes in the world

    Okay, not literally, but you want to vary the boxes that you buy for packing. Don’t just get a bunch of big boxes because you think that’s what you need, instead get a few large ones, some medium ones and a few smaller ones. The small boxes will be perfect for packing books; medium ones are great for loading in smaller boxes or dishware, and the large ones you want to keep for lightweight items like bedding and clothes.

  • Choose the right company

    Us, right here! Pick us! Honestly, there’s no other moving company out there that understands the city like we do. Our storage units are even custom built for the city. However, if you aren’t moving in NYC and we can’t assist you, then you’ll want to make sure you’re hiring a moving company that is licensed and properly insured. Also, take a look at their Yelp profile to see reviews from former customers. Word of mouth is always the most reliable source.

Moving down the street is stressful enough, let alone moving out of state or to a new city that’s far enough to be in a new state, but have no fear because we have some advice for you. The average person moved 11 times throughout their life – that’s a lot, and you’d think that with all that moving experience it’d get easier, but it just doesn’t. Packing your life into cardboard boxes can be depressing and if it’s your first big move, it can be scary, especially if you’re moving into a big city like New York.

If you’re moving to a new place, take a look at some of the tips we’ve put together. At Divine Moving, we’ve dealt with all different types of people moving in and out of new York City, and we’ve seen people handle moving several different ways, some more successful than others, and we’re going to share the more successful ones with you.

4 Tips for Moving Out of State

  1. Put together a master plan

    If this is your first time moving out on your own, sit down with family members who can help you prioritize and let you know what you’ll need to consider since they’ve most likely done it before. This list should include everything from your packing strategy (when you should start), contacting professional moving services, and setting up your new place.

  2. Don’t wait till the last minute

    This is the worst thing you can do. Start packing early so you can better determine what you need to take and what you can either give away or leave at home. Moving is a long and lengthy process that takes preparation so the bigger jump you get on it, the better.

  3. Choose your method

    You can either do it yourself, or hire professional movers. We highly suggest hiring movers because you don’t want to risk damaging any of your belongings. Of course, you’ll take some things in your vehicle, but you don’t want to have to move an entire bedroom set down a flight of stairs then pack it into a rental truck, let the movers do that for you. We guarantee we have more experience with that type of lifting and handling. Plus, movers will have a better idea of the area and where to park to begin unloading your things at your new place.

  4. Move important items by yourself

    If you do hire professional movers, you want to keep any important possessions in your possession. Move the items that cost more money or are invaluable by yourself into your new apartment, that way if they get lost, it’s no one’s fault but your own, but hopefully you don’t lose them.

Moving Around New York City?

Moving from one burrow to another in NYC can be a daunting task, but that time comes for everyone. With the busiest moving season coming up in May, contact us at Divine Moving to schedule an appointment. No one knows New York City like we do, and we offer storage for any of customers who may need to keep some of their belongings stored away in a temperature controlled environment.

When it’s time to move, the stress is already there. It’s been looming. You just paid a down payment on your new NYC apartment, you still have to contact movers, pack all your things up, and you have no idea where to start. At Divine Moving, we understand how much moving in the city can suck the life out of you mentally and physically, but we provide our clients with moving advice, because no one knows moving in NYC better than we do.

By the time you start packing up your things and looking into moving companies, you’re probably already aware of your moving budget, and doing anything on a budget can be difficult, but that’s only if you don’t choose the right company to assist you.

Tips for When You Start Your Move

  • If you can take it yourself, take it. You don’t need to let the movers take everything you have in their truck. Moving companies base their pricing on the items you’re shipping, so leave the heavy stuff to them like bed frames, large pieces of furniture, and mattresses to them and then do your best to pack what you can in your car. Also, think about setting aside a pile of the things you don’t really need, because that will be less you have to worry about, and you can donate.
  • Try not to move during the peak of the season. In NYC, the peak of moving season is the summer – that’s when all the recent graduates start migrating into the city and it becomes a nightmare for moving and finding movers that aren’t already booked. If you don’t have a choice and your lease is up during that peak time, make sure you call movers ahead of time, but you really want to do your best to avoid scheduling during those few months.
  • Do your best to use your own packing supplies. Packing supplies are expensive regardless of where you go to get them. So, you want to dig up any boxes you still have from when you moved in, and ask friends or any stores if they have boxes they’re willing to give you. This will save you so much.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask the moving company questions. If you have questions about extra moving costs, if there is a storage option, or if movers insurance is available, ask.
  • If you’re relocating, save the receipts. There’s a good chance you’ll get a tax break if you’re moving into the city from significantly far away for your job. So, make sure you save all those moving receipts from the movers to the packing until tax season.

Thank you so much for all you did to extract my daughter Claire from Brooklyn and deliver her once again to Manhattan.  I’m sorry I didn’t write earlier but I came home in what seemed like a hurricane and with my continuing ailment.  But today is a much better day and I wanted you to know how truly grateful we are for your amazing work and service.  The four men who handled the move were great in every respect.  And you, David, were the essence of customer service because with all the changes of date/time,  you never said “no” or were negative in any way.   Dana also provided valuable information and coaching, and together you made the Divine way the best way possible for a move.

Thanks to everyone on your team who helped us during a time of extreme stress and anxiety (plus illness).  If you ever need a reference from me, I’ll be glad to help you.

All the best for your continuing success,

Sincerely,

Elaine Frost
