Administrator answers:

In most states contracts with minors are not enforceable sooo ,
Next to no landlords will rent to them ,
Unless they are like teen techno or entertainment millionaires .

Your question suggests otherwise . . .
New York state ? Or New York City ? ?

The state has lots of depressed areas where you could pick up an apt cheap ,
The city ? Figure on about $5000 initial cost to get in and proof of employment that you can afford the unit ongoing .

What are your careers going to be ?


Mary asks…

Where are some nice places to live in New York City?

I know it’s SUPER expensive in New York City. Are there any places I can live that aren’t the most expensive but, the area is still nice and not dangerous?

Administrator answers:

Well, surprisingly enough, you can get some nice little tiny studio apartments on the Upper East Side for around $1300 a month, and it’s very nice and very safe up there.

Of course, those apartments are about the size of the average suburban bedroom, not much bigger than your bed, but, there you go, that’s life in the big apple, right?

So, search for New York City apartments on and look at the cheapest listings they have, and also read the article at the link, below, it’s all about the lengths people go to to live here.

Good luck!… :-D

Transport right now is $2. Per ride but you can buy a weekly metrocard for $24 or $25, month;y for $81. Its cheaper than payin $2. Each way.
Food cost a lot say perhaps $100. Per week for grocery. Hopefully you can get a job that provides health insurance, cause paying outta pocket is a lot
