Administrator answers:

I’m no expert in the field of finding jobs, but it is definitely cheaper to live further out in Queens, like Flushing, or somewhere in Brooklyn or upper Manhattan or the Bronx and commute to the city (midtown) to work. Check out http://www.nytimes.com/pages/realestate/index.html and put in the search bar how much you want to pay and the neighborhood.

Good luck with everything!

Maria asks…

What is the reasonable price for a 1 bedroom East-Village apartment (NYC)?

Hi, French student here.

I’ll be studying between January and July 2012 in NY with my best friend.
We are looking for an apartment, either in Manhattan or in Brooklyn. Some old friends of my parents told us about a 1bedroom apartment in East Village (1 block away from the tompkins park), which is around 500 sq. feet I think. The apartment seems clean and nice, nothing crazy but nice.

The price is around 2,500$ per month. That would be 1700 euros.

We have almost no idea if the price is a very good deal for us, or if this is way to high for what it is… So, what do you think ? Good deal ? Should we try to sign a deal quick or maybe try to find cheaper ? What are the prices in this area for this kind of apartment ?

Thanks !

(tl;dr : is 2,500 $ per month a good deal for an east-village 1bedroom apartment ?)

Administrator answers:

See if you can try to find cheaper. 500 sq ft is a shoebox for that price. East Village is a nice area though, you are paying mainly for location. Brooklyn would be the cheaper way to go if you are looking to save money during your stay. I suggest you shop around first before you jump into something that you may not be happy with that you are paying so much for.

Richard asks…

I’m from Augusta,GA moving to NYC (upper east side)?

How can I move my stuff up to NYC in storage from Augusta, GA and I have no car to take it up there and I never drove a car before. What should I do? I also want to find an apartment for under $1,000 and stay at a cheap hotel for under $100.
What should I do?

Administrator answers:

1000 bucks for rent… You going to need to move to brooklyn , queens, and the bronx or get a roomate or two. Otherwise manhattan is outta the question. ( unless you know someone.) Hotel for less than 100 ? Your gonna have to stay in a hostel … NYC and San Fran run neck and neck for most expensive places to live… On the good side, the best way to get in and out of new york is the train so you dont have to worry about that part !!!

Laura asks…

How much money should I reserve to move from Houston Texas to NYC?

I am a male in my mid 20′s and I am ready to head north…Well not quite ready obviously. I have looked into some apartments and intend to take the roommate route until I am stable and know the city a little better. I do not really know the city besides the few vacations I have taken there but lets get to the point.. How much money do I need to get there also having a place to sleep (something modest) maybe a little cheaper.. I know cheap is hard to find in NYC but luckily im young and not very picky for I have no room to be. Should I bring my car? prolly not.. What kinds of easy hire jobs should I look for? Living in Texas I couldnt go to an interview in NY so should I wait until I get there? Almost any information will help thanks

Administrator answers:

Unless you have an education that is desired in NYC the only other jobs that pay well are ber tender and stripper. I moved to NYC in 85 thing 5K would get me through a couple of months and it did not. I would not move with anything under 15K-20K without knowing there was a bed and job waiting for me and I knew the costs.

Mandy asks…

The Webster- summer housing in NYC?

Has anyone heard of The Webster (an apartment for women) in NYC? I’m a college student with a summer internship looking for summer housing and I stumbled across The Webster online. It looks nice (and it has maid service!) and it is pretty cheap, but I just wanted to see if I could get feedback from anyone else…

Administrator answers:

I have a friend that lives in a similar place. The only problem is that now you are an adult, you might want a guy to stay over once in a while. Not going to happen there. They are VERY strict.
