    Talking how to use "live"

    This is my first question. Which is more natural for you,
    I lived in NY last month.
    or
    I was living in NY last month.
    and
    I lived in NY then.
    or
    I was living in NY then. ? Depends on the situation ? If so, please give me some example sentences. Thank you.

    Default Re: how to use "live"

    Both forms can be used. I would use the progressive form to imply I continued living there before and after the time under discussion .
