Your Questions About Apt For Rent In Manhattan
Rule of thumb: renting in Manhattan…?
Is it true that you must make (annually) at least 50 times your estimated monthly rent before a landlord in Manhattan will rent an apt. to you? If so, exactly how common and stringent is this policy?
Thank you for credible, helpful responses.
The multiple varies by landlord, but it is usually in the range of 40 to 50 times your rent.
Some landlords will allow someone else to guarantee the rent.
I hope this helps.
Housing lottery I was picked for one can I get the apt?
I was recently laid off and I live in new york. I was called 2 weeks after being laid off for an interview for an apt in Manhattan. The rent for the apt is a bit above 600 I receive 1200 a month from unemployment. The site wants me to have my 4 recent pay stubs and I only have 2 I am trying to get something from my former employer for the stubs. I am afraid that I will not be able to get the apt and this is a once and a lifetime opportunity. If I bring my paper work from unemployment will that help me out?
Don’t bother, you will not qualify without a job.
Does anyone from New York know of any rent subsidized/income base apartments or info?
Does anyone know of any available apartment buildings in the New York City area; perferbally Manhattan and Brooklyn, that are rent subsidized, income based and are asking for a salary between $18,000- $23,000 or anything close to it. Or any websites that will give me a full listing for rent subsidized apt. I already applied for the different available apartments on Hpd housing website but I would like to have options just in case those take too long.
My family is growing because I’m having a baby soon and I need AFFORDABLE space nothing major but something bigger than a studio. A one bedroom would be fine.
The waiting list is years and years long..the only thing you can do is apply for NYCHA but be forewarned, it may take you 6-7 yrs or longer just to get a response. There are New Yorkers living here who have been trying to get that housing.
P.S take this from a native New Yorker, anything cheap, usually mean Rats and Roaches..that’s the straight truth. You should try Craigslist NYC, look for studios /1 bedroom apartments. Decent 1 bedrooms start at $1000 per month.

Me and about 8 of my friends are coming from California to Manhattan for a bachelorette party weekend.
