I'm from Montreal and I have a job offer (junior XSI artist) for a Design and effects studio in New York city and they are offering me 25 000$us and health insurance. Does anybody know if it is a good deal considering costs of living in New York. How much should I ask for? If anybody can give me valuable advice and informations, it would be very nice.

mart: Sounds good - entry level positions are a great start. Some of NY people could give you more advice on the money.

Got any more details on the job or a portfolio/site?

$25,000 is crap for New York. In Milwaukee, I'd consider it the low end of "enh, I guess I need the health insurance", but for New York? That's starvation wages. Then again, it's possible... and you know what they say, "if you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere." Just don't carry much cash on you, and leave your credit cards at home unless you're shopping.

edit: All in all, I'd say take it. It's a tough job market right now, even after a year and a half of economic blah, and even if the job sucks it's good experience. The more work history you've got, the better.

The poster has demanded we remove all his contributions, less he takes legal action.
We have done so.
Now Tyberius Prime expects him to start complaining that we removed his 'free speech' since this message will replace all of his posts, past and future.
Don't follow his example - seek real life help first.

I tend to agree with PT, New York has a very high cost of living compared to most other states. However, the health benefits are nice to have. This may open up some doors for you however, and I think my conscience would tell me to go for it. New York is filled with design opportunities.
