Breakdown of Apartments in New York City
"Neighborhoods to consider if you are thinking of living in Brooklyn include Park Slope, an easy commute to any of the hospitals, with block after block of attractive brownstone houses and apartment buildings; Bay Ridge and Borough Park, pleasant residential neighborhoods surrounding the Veterans Hospital, with tree-lined streets of single family and two family dwellings; Flatbush, the area surrounding the University Hospital, with an interesting blend of large apartment buildings, row houses, and single family Victorian homes that creates an almost suburban atmosphere just minutes from the Health Science Center; and Brooklyn Heights, a beautiful urban neighborhood with lovely brownstone houses and a scenic promenade overlooking the skyline of lower Manhattan, only 15 minutes from Kings County and University Hospital.Of course, Brooklyn is also a quick trip away from the limitless possibilities of Manhatta(Suny)."
Brooklyn
Manhattan
"Surrounded by the world's best live theatre, restaurants, shopping, nightlife and more, this is Manhattan living at its best. Legendary Central Park is minutes walk away with acres of greenery and trails for walking, biking, jogging, skating, people watching, and, hopefully, cross-country skiing and snowman building! Whether or not the show comes, there's the romance of a trip around the park in horse-drawn carriage, or the icerink(Manhattan)."
Bronx
"In the Belmont ("Little Italy") area, which is a popular area right-off campus and still reasonably priced, studios start at about $500/month and go as high as $850/month for a really nice place. Depending on the number of rooms in a share (an apartment or house with 2 or more bedrooms) rents run from $300-$550/month per roommate. One bedrooms in Belmont are between $850-$1150/month and three bedrooms are between $900-$1250. These are estimate averages, obviously prices will vary with the quality and accoutrements of each housing situation(Frequently)."
Queens
"Three of the most popular neighborhoods in western Queens for those commuting to Manhattan are Astoria, Long Island City (LIC), and Jackson Heights. They are all a short subway ride to Midtown. Astoria and LIC are just across the East River from Midtown and the Upper East Side. As people are priced out of Manhattan, western Queens has gained in popularity, especially for folks in their 20s and 30s. To find an apartment, a real estate broker is usually the easiest route to go, but expect to pay one month's rent in fees. Or check the local newspapers for no-fee listings. Also, small landlords often post for-rent signs in windows and in laundromats and cafes(About)."
