Cheap apartment/room in NYC for 10 days?
Looking for a cheap place to stay in NYC for 10 days in August. We are currently In Boston an hoping to travel up to NYC to sight see and shop before we head back to Ireland! Does anybody know cheap places to stay…motels or hotels preferably with our own room as we are a couple!
Any help so greatly appreciated
Unfortunately, my friend, renting an apartment for less than 30 days in considered illegal in New York City. Therefore, I would recommend stay in a hotel or hostel instead.
Depending on your budget, may I recommend the links below for hotel price comparison.

I know there’s no such thing as cheap in NYC…but what is the the cheapest living option for a poor student?
I’m a 20 year old college student from Long Island and I’m looking to get an internship in the city this summer. Originally I was planning on commuting, but now I’m considering apartments. My internship will (most likely) be in lower manhattan, so I was considering finding a place in Staten Island near the ferry and taking the ferry in every day. What is realistically the cheapest I could find an apartment for? I’d obviously be willing to share, and I don’t really care so much about location as long as it’s not the Bronx or Queens (which I know limits my options a lot). UNLESS you know of a nice area in the Bronx that I could afford on a poor student’s budget.
Any thoughts,opinions, or advice? I’m pretty familiar with the city having lived so close to it for my whole life, so I’m mostly looking for advice on the cheapest places to live and how much I should expect to pay there.
I interned on Staten Island a few summers ago, the area near the ferry terminal is pretty sketchy, pretty much anything north of Forest Ave seemed sketchy when I was there, and anything south was fine.
What do you consider cheap? My friend from college was paying $900 per month for an apartment in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, walking distance from the #1 subway line, Metro North, and several bus routes, as well as the apartment having a reserved parking spot.
Is it worth moving to NYC?
My dream has ALWAYS been to go to college and Live In NYC…
Is it worth it?
Any good colleges?
Any cheap apartments, not to far away from the City?
I live in Oregon, so I’m going to miss my family ALOT!!!!
NYC is worth it! But it’s what you make of it. Some people are not used to the impersonal-ness of NYers. We have amazing colleges in NYC, Columbia, and NYU to name a few.
It’s expensive, but you can look into areas such as Williamsburg (especially if you’re creative) or Astoria. Some suburban places are close to the city and much cheaper.
CUNY also offers affordable education but the different schools offer different qualities. Flagship schools such as the CUNY City College, Baruch, and Hunter are generally good. But if you can go Ivy or semi Ivy (NYU) then go for it
What is the safest and cheapest place to live in NYC?
I might be moving to New York City soon, and I have been looking at apartments. I have no clue which neighborhoods are nice and which aren’t. I have a pug and a car, so I need some place that allows pets and has some type of parking. I need to be near the fashion district…which I believe is in manhattan right?
I have been searching all over the internet, but I’m not really finding the information I need. I would prefer someones personal experience, but any help is appreciated!
I think Queens is much safer than Bronx, and is also pretty close to Manhattan. Kew Gardens, Forest Hills and Richmond Hill are pretty nice places. Richmond Hill has plenty of parking space. Forest Hills Gardens is also a nice private area, but I don’t think you can find someplace cheap for rent over there. I think you should settle closer to 71/Continental avenue, Queens, because there are plenty of apartments there and the transportation is good, there’s an express bus to Manhattan and the subway can take you to Manhattan in about 40 minutes
Hey it looks like we are moving to NYC! I have a few questions to people who live there or have lived there.
1. My husband is a Manager of a retail store.. he gets paid about 40,000 dollars now ( We live in OR) since rent is so high there, do people tend to get paid more?
2. Are the cheaper apartments really bad to live in? I am talking about less then 1000 a month.
3. What is the city life like?
4. Is there really lots of opportunity there…(especially in music)?
Oh and we are in are 20′s if that makes a dif.
1. Yes, you will earn more. The avg. Wages in NYC amount to 25% greater than most tier 3 cities.
2. DO not live in an apt. Under 1000/month anywhere near the city. They are roach infested. If you wish to live on 1000/month rent a sublet or a share with someone. Or perhaps a private apt in someone’s home outside the city in Queens, or Jersey City, 15 minute trip away.
3. NYC is everything you want it to be. A different country every day, a different concert, play, show, sight every day. The things you see here you will see noplace esle in this world. I moved here 9 years ago from canada and can’t leave,
4. I’m also a musician…there are TONS of opportunities here.
Good luck and feel free to contact me via email if you’d like more info.
