Local goods at the Ft. Greene Farmer’s Market | Ethan Oringel via Flickr
New Yorkers don’t live like most Americans. We get a daily quad workout from walking up the four flights of steps to our walk-up apartments. We carry umbrellas, gym clothes, and changes of shoes in our messenger bags, because most of us don’t have cars and probably won’t be home until after dinner. We buy local vegetables at the farmer’s market down the block.
When it comes to buying renter’s and apartment insurance, it’s good to go local, too. Local brokerages like Gotham Brokerage Co., Incunderstand what it means to live in an NYC apartment. There are many New York-specific economic considerations that go into matching you with your ideal policy: higher property values and labor costs, older plumbing and wiring, different crime rates.
When it comes to NYC insurance, there’s no substitute for local expertise. Gotham Brokerage knows New York City — they’ve been in this market for over 50 years. They can help you find the right rental or homeowner’s insurance for you, and it’s fast, easy, and inexpensive.
