Welcome to the Moving Guide for Postdocs WikiaEdit

The purpose of this wiki is to simplify the process of relocation to Columbia University in the City of New York.

It is mainly aimed towards foreign postdocs, but can be also useful to students and faculty. As also for other people moving to NYC.

It is NOT supposed to be an extensive guide to New York City, but should be focused on simplifying logistics, bureaucracy and everyday life of the few first months in the city.
