Excited to see how this plays out

Pros:

Sounds like a great idea! Many of my friends are struggling when they move into new cities.

Cons:

I cannot think of anything that currently solves this problem sufficiently

Product @ Blend

Can't wait to see how this evolves into the next big thing for urban millennials!

Pros:

Solving a real problem - starting a new life in a new city. Making new friends is 1 of the biggest challenges for those in their early 20s.

Cons:

Don't see any yet

I wrote about just *how* difficult it is to move to this city as a new grad so if you're interested, you can read all the gory details here: https://medium.com/@SarahMcBride...

Pros:

As a foreign import to NYC, this is endlessly useful. So many basic things in this city hinge on having connections.

Cons:

I'm looking forward to seeing how the team bridge the experience from online to IRL meet-ups and mixers.

Thank you so much for this response (and I LOVE your medium article!!). I relate with many of the problems you listed about new york, especially the part on "Spending time with humans." Im so excited that Trolley can help.

Thanks for your review @sararahmcb ! Loved your article on NYC and I can definitely relate!

looking forward to more people joining!

Pros:

Already a member! very excited to meet other recent nyc transplants

Cons:

so far, so good! it seems members are self-selective and will take advantage of Trolley by interacting on slack and attending events
