Dear Andrew,

I hope you are doing well. I am writing this letter to inform you that I have moved into a new flat near New York City Center.

This is too formal for a friend – I am writing this letter. Try to write more informally.

I hope you are doing well. I informed you during our last conversation that I was looking for a more spacious apartment. Well, I have found one and I shifted to this place last night.

Actually, I have been transferred to the city center branch of my company. It took me around an hour to commute from home to office (The idea is not clearly conveyed. Which home?) Commuting from the previous apartment to this branch used to take more than one hour every day. So, I decided to find a new place to stay near my workplace.

It is a flat of three bedrooms with attached with bathrooms, having a modular kitchen and a huge lobby (having destroys parallelism. Three, A, A are parallel.). It is a perfect place to accommodate a family of four. I, particularly, like the interior design and superior ventilation process of the flat. Despite its size and quality, it is a quite affordable and even cheaper comparinged to my previous apartment. (Though there are minor mistakes, you’ve developed the second part of the question in a specific manner. Good job!)

As we have not met for ages, I invite you and your family and you to visit us for a dinner on this weekend. Children will love to play with each other and we will spend some quality time together. I am sure you will love the new house. (The invitation is fine. A reference of the new apartment will make it better.)

See you soon,
