That's just insane, there's perfectly nice 1-bedrooms to be had for $1,200 in Long Island City. Just across the river.


There are also perfectly good apartments in Cleveland OH for $500. :wink:

In my opinion, if you are attend Stern or Columbia, you must live on Manhattan. You would be missing out on so much if you don't. It's only 20 months, bite the bullet. that's what I would do.

Oh no, I agree with that completely. In an ideal world, I would be going to Columbia or NYU and sharing a $6,000/month 3-BR with 2 roommates. :lol:

Just saying that if $1,200 was all I could afford, I would rather live 25 mins. further away from school and have a place of my own, as opposed to staying in somebody's living room.

Columbia maybe, but for Stern you can get in from Brooklyn in such a short amount of time. The MTA runs all night, and you can always get back to where you need (the one time it was tricky was at 4am in the snow for my friend). Hoboken and Jersey City are also viable. I live downtown, but I think it needs to be corrected as misinformation that you miss out if you don't. My friend in Brooklyn is extremely involved in life and won't miss a thing.

I agree. I think the Williamsburg neighborhood in Brooklyn would be a great place to live as an NYU student.
