Your Questions About New Affordable Apartments In The Bronx

February 27, 2013

Joseph asks…

Another New York question?

Ok I’ll be completely honest with most of you I’d like to move there. At the Beach at the moment, which is ok, but for what I’m paying out here I think I could do better (1,300). Then again maybe I’m a bit niave about that. Anyway, we’re thinking about watching the ball drop in Times Square, but we’re unsure if we should take the train from here or just drive up there, where to park if we do drive, and how to hold onto our money, which wasn’t a problem the last time, even given the fact that I fell asleep on the train (which wasn’t that smart of a thing to do), but that’s neither here or there. So, aside from getting up there, how much should I be prepared to shell out for that day or so …

Administrator answers:

As far as rent in NYC, there are a wide range of options. Manhattan is not the only burrough in NYC. The most affordable housing is within the other four burroughs- Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island. Staten Island is the least convenient, transportation-wise. You can get a 1000 sq ft apartment in a nice neighborhood in any of the other burroughs that is 30-45 minute train ride away for about $1000 a month.

Depending on where the “Beach” is, its a pretty good idea across the board to take the train and eliminate the frustrations with having a car in the city.

To hold onto your money, you should keep it in a close bag or in your front pocket. Just don’t be waving your money around and you won’t lose it.

If you want to spend the night in the city, you better make your reservation now. It should cost $200-$600, depending on the hotel and location. Besides hotel costs, your drinks will cost $5-$10 each, food $2-$200. A one day subway metro card is $7.
