Your Questions About Studio Apartments In New York

July 4, 2013

Joseph asks…

A good part of New York to live in?

I am planning on going to NYU for College, and I want to find a studio apartment, that is nice, not too expensive, and safe. That’s an important thing, it has to be somewhere safe. PS I want a good job, and I can’t decide what to major in. I like to write, draw, taking pictures, I like movies, I’ve considered being a social worker, and I really like helping people :) So if there is any job that can afford me a good apartment in New York City, that would be great. Sorry this is pretty specific, but any help is appreciated.

George asks…

wreaths vs. trees in apartments?!?

i live in a small studio apartment in new york, and i simply have no room for even a small artificial tree in my apartment, as much as i would like one. so i instead hang a wreath in my door.

i also have no extra storage space for the tree when im not using it.

out of curiosity, is anyone else in a similar situation?

Administrator answers:

I found this really cool tree its like super small and you can use it after Christmas is over….Look at this thing!

Sandy asks…

Which borough is best to live in at 18 in New York?

I’m moving to New York City in July. I am 18 years old and am moving up there for modeling. I have alot of money and my parents are gonna help me a little but I cannot afford Manhattan. I will be using the subway as transportation and will love to be sort of close to manhattan just to visit every now and then. which borough is best for an 18 year old college student to find a studio apartment? Brooklyn, Queens, or Bronx… I am not living in Staten Island.

Administrator answers:

IF YOU CAN’T AFFORD MANHATTAN, THAN BROOKLYN IS THE PLACE TO BE. BROOKLYN HEIGHTS WOULD BE THE #1 CHOICE OF NEIGHBORHOODS–UPSCALE, PEACEFUL, NORMAL PEOPLE, SUBWAY NEAR BY. NEXT CHOICE WOULD BE WILLIAMSBURG. UPCOMING NEIGHBORHOOD BUT STILL PLENTY OF ORTHODOX JEWS LIVING THERE. THEY HAVE STRANGE WAYS BUT ARE HARMLESS. SUBWAY NEAR BY. BOTH AREAS ARE VERY CLOSE TO MANHATTAN (JUST OVER THE EAST RIVER). WHATEVER YOU DO, STAY AWAY FROM THE BRONX. A COUPLE OF SECTIONS OF QUEENS ARE NICE (FOREST HILLS, KEW GARDENS). HUGE CULTURAL DIVERSITY IN THESE AREAS. EXCELLENT SUBWAYS BUT NOT AS CLOSE TO MANHATTAN AS THE BROOKLYN NEIGHBORHOODS. THERE ARE EVEN NICER AREAS IN QUEENS LIKE BAYSIDE BUT YOU WOULD HAVE TO TAKE THE LONG ISLAND RAIL ROAD TO MANHATTAN–NO SUBWAYS.

Donna asks…

If i was making 70 thousand a year Could I live in a studio apartment for 2400 a month?

If I was making 70 thousand a year Could I live in a studio apartment for 2400 a month in New York City? I wouldn’t be owning a car so thats saving a lot. Would they let me rent a studio for that much making that amount?

Administrator answers:

Many times a NYC landlord will require that you earn 42X the amount of your monthly rent. If you encounter a landlord with this stipulation you may not get approved.

42X2400=100,800

You may find landlords who will be more lax on this rule, but some require that you make even more.

Of course if you have plenty of cash available, and if you pay multiple months up front, you may get approved on your salary.

What neighborhoods are you looking in? There are plenty of neighborhoods in all five boroughs in which you can get much more for your money than $2400 for a studio.
