NYC Apartments for Rent

New York City is the world's greatest city. Of course, that is open to debate in many parts of the world, but among the residents long and new, there is simply no contest. Whether you seek gourmet dining, legendary Broadway shows, luxury brands, or more humble interests; you'll certainly find what you are looking for somewhere within the five boroughs of NYC.

Probably the most difficult part of living in New York is actually moving here, both because of the difficulty in finding NYC apartments for rent and the notoriously high price tags that come with living in the city (or even anywhere within a few miles from the city). Fear not, there are always neighborhoods with great deals, new housing stock being constructed year after year, and an expansive, albeit aging, public transportation system that serves well over a million commuters per day.

Atmosphere

Among many other things, New York is home to the world's financial and fashion capitals. Paul Graham infamously wrote that all great cities send a message in 100 subtle ways, and here in NYC the message is to make more money. There are other admirable messages too, to dress better and be more hip, but by and large the city seems to offer an unlimited number of ways to spend. Friends and strangers alike remind us that we should jog harder on the financial treadmill, a phenomenon only outsiders like Robert Kiyosaki could declare an endless Rat Race.

Despite all the price and consumption shock, New Yorkers still love the city, and for great reason. It's all worth it!! In almost every industry, career prospects for young millennials are better working in Manhattan than anywhere else in the world. Finance, Law, and Marketing immediately come to mind, but in just the past decade NYC has made even greater strides as a technology hub. Engineering jobs were once relegated to back office positions in large non-tech firms, but with Google's solid headquarters in Cheslea, the rapid startup scene growth in DUMBO, and the impressive expansion of WeWork and other co-working spaces, New York now easily rivals Silicon Valley and SF as the country's destination for software engineers.

And while a city of over-achievers and over-spenders might seem too intense for relaxation, New York City actually sets the standard for world class entertainment and museums. One can admire the Matisse collection at the Museum of Modern Art, stroll through the old Sheep Meadow at Central Park, have afternoon tea overlooking Columbus Circle, and watch a Broadway matinee all in one afternoon; leaving the evening free for more adventurous journeys.

Getting Around

The public transportation system is expansive and may seem intimidating at first, but it runs 24/7 and services millions of commuters and tourists daily. The subway charges a single fare between any two destinations, whether you are traveling one stop between Times Square and Herald Square (a 10 minute walk), or from Columbia University's medical school campus to JFK International Airport (a 19 mile trek). For those living farther away, there are several light rail trains that serve folks to the North (Metro North), East (Long Island Rail Road), and West (the New Jersey PATH train). Those who live due South of Manhattan take a ferry (The Staten Island Ferry and New York Waterways ferries).

Mayor Michael Bloomberg's decade in office saw a dramatic increase in NYC support for bikers. Countless miles of new bike lanes, some separated by medians. Citibike also came online in 2013 providing short term rental bikes and docking stations all over the city (just don't keep it for longer than 45 minutes). While biking alongside seemingly wreckless cab drivers, aggressive bus drivers, and blind-spot laden delivery trucks is not for everyone, a bike during rush hour traffic can often be faster than any other mode of transportation, especially when there is no direct subway line to your destination.

Check it Out
  • Take a walk on Highline Park; best to start in Chelsea and head north an hour before sunset.
  • Thirsty for a cocktail? Find one of the legendary NY speakeasy bars; you can cheat now using Yelp.
  • Shopping in Manhattan is good in almost any neighborhood, but SoHo and 5th Avenue are especially noteworthy for luxury brands.
  • Everyone loves the big museums, from MET to MOMA. For something a bit different, check out the Museum of Chinese in the Americas, or the Tenement Museum in lower east side.
  • Like every tourist or new New Yorker, walk the Brooklyn Bridge, grab a pizza from Grimaldi's once you reach the other side, and treat yourself to a cab or subway ride back.
  • Everyone knows to look for Chinatown and Little Italy by Canal Street, but for more authentic fare, try to find Chinatown in 8th Ave Brooklyn or Little Italy in the Bronx.
