Check with out of state friends and/or relatives. They can tell you a lot about the area, and maybe you can even move in with them until you get on your feet. That's what i did when i went to Cali from the east coast. Had everything set-up except a job, which i got soon enough.
Then i was able to move, get a car, a nice drum set, Made some friends, but consulting with friends is the best way to go. If you don't have any friends where you're interested in going, ask your friends if they know people there, and get the info from them.
Doing it on your own can be a lot harder.

I honestly think NYC holds their people back. Yes, there's a lot of people that live there so there's more chances for jobs and making a living but the amount it costs to live there really hinders people. If you're not rich, it's hard to build any type of savings. It's like that city swallows you whole and you aren't ever getting out or gonna have a better life.
I still like NYC but I wouldn't want to live there unless I was loaded.

It all comes down to where you want to live in NYC or any city for that matter. Some people live there rent free. Not the nicest accommodations but... You get my point.

Moving is tough. Sometimes you don't realize how much you are going to miss everything till you are away from it. If it were me I would save first, at least enough to survive a few months. It would defeat the puropse of independence if you have to call home for support. New places are fun but as the newness wears off you can regret your decision so if you are 100% sure this is what you want, make sure you have plans and even back up plans to make it work.

I would advise you to stay motivated and focus on one thing at a time. Look at what you currently have right now and use them to your advantage. Your end goal is to look for a job, in order for you to do that you want to move elsewhere to look for it, but what's holding you back is the uncertainty and most importantly not having the funds or resources to be able to support you throughout that time that you're looking for a job. So your immediate goal should be to raise some funds.
My biggest advice to you is to take your time. You are young, time is at your side -- you don't have to rush through it. Think this through and attack your problems one by one. A job is an opportunity, no matter what or where it is or how much it pays. I encourage you to swallow your pride and maybe start looking at getting a job at a fast food place or Walmart nearby temporarily -- that's if you haven't done so already. I assume you're not paying rent while at your mom and pops. Save enough money till you have enough to live on for at least three months. Three months is usually the lowest short-term rental agreement that many apartments offer. While you're there you could get a small job to support your funds, then slowly work your way up and send out your applications/resume.

This is how you do it:
1. Get the F.U.C.K up and move out.
