Your Questions About Cheapest Apartments In Nyc

Charles asks…

How can I convince my parents to move to NYC?

I really want to go to Stuyvesant High School in NYC because I want to go to a better high school [than the one I'm supposed to go to currently]. There probably is a good high school closer to me but I don’t know if I can go to that one… [towns and district stuff]. What should I do? My parents probably could afford a cheaper NYC apartment… but I want to know if it’s worth it and how I can tell my parents I need to go to a different high school. Mine has NO AP. Please help! Thanks in advance.

Administrator answers:

So, you want to uproot your entire family just so that you can go to Stuyvesant High School? Not TOO spoiled, are we?

Don’t be ridiculous. Sure, it’s a good school, but it’s not THAT good, so don’t be an idiot, and, besides, Stuyvesant is VERY hard to get into. I mean, you have to apply, and they get thousands and thousands of applications from the best and the brightest students in the entire city, and I’m sorry to tell you that, unless you’re some sort of major genius, you probably wouldn’t get in, sorry.

So, to sum up, as we say here in New York City, “Fuhgeddaboudit!”

Good luck!… :-D

Donna asks…

Can someone help me with this question about living in NYC?

Where and how can you find a cheap rental apartment in NYC under 600 dollars. If you find any links, could you send them to me?

Administrator answers:

There is no such thing and any link you find will be a scam.

How could i describe my Vampire Character in my book?

I’m writing a book about Vampires. The main character …….. Has long curly locks of black hair, pale face, dark brown eyes, she is slender and fairly tall, extraordinary & beautiful. She and her mother live in an cheap apartment in NYC living off of McDonalds. What shoe & clothes brands should she have? Clothes style? I will pick a best answer and put this in the “To help write this book” Section. Please help me!

Administrator answers:

The sun among the clouds stood out the girl. With her hair as dark as a ravens wing rippled down to her shoulders like a waterfall. Her pale face reminded everyone of a moon lit night. Her eyes full of courage and strength hid behind the dark chocolate pool. Her clothes were plain and inexpensive upon anyone else but on her made her look like a goddess. Yet her soul was pure, happy, and whole, no arrogance in midst of all the goodness. Her beautiful face, her beautiful mind made her who she was and yet she had a secret. Something dark lurked behind all the beauty.

IDK that is how you could describe her.

Where’s the best in NYC to live for a broke, twenty year old Columbia student?

I’m moving to NYC from Miami to go to Columbia, I have $1200 dollars for room and board please another $900 dollars a month from work, what’s the cheapest apartment I can get in the city? What’s the best neighborhood for College students? The Upper Westside and Morningside Heights are pretty expensive.

Administrator answers:

Columbia owns a lot of the apartment buildings in Morningside Heights and rents them out to students at slightly below market rates, so look at Columbia’s housing directory before ruling that out. If you want cheaper still, go north/east into Harlem.

Ken asks…

Which nyc boroughs is in the city and which is close to the city?

I’m moving to nyc soon and want to know which boroughs is in the city and close the city,also are there any cheap apartments in manhattan?

Administrator answers:

The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island are ALL the boroughs, and they’re the five boroughs that make up New York City. They’re all IN the city. However, many people consider Manhattan to be “the city,” because it’s where the most sight-seeing goes on, and it’s where the most landmarks are. However, all five boroughs are The City, even if many people don’t think of Staten Island to be part of the city because of it’s seclusion. However, it’s a part of the city. I used to think that New York City WAS Manhattan — but it’s not.

There are VERY few cheap apartments in Manhattan. If you want a cheap apartment, I’d recommend looking in Brooklyn or in Queens — those are where the cheapest apartments are, generally, and it’s where college students attending New York University tend to get apartments, as Manhattan apartments cannot be leased on a college student “salary,” if they even have one.
