I am moving to NYC soon and would like to know good apartments in Manhattan/Brooklyn area.
I would love to not stay in New Jersey especially Jersey City.

    What’s wrong with Jersey City? It’s a far safer and cleaner place than shithole Brooklyn.

      It reminds me of India and I would like to avoid that.

      You’re in the wrong part of JC then. The heights and Grove street are really nice with a ton of stuff to do.

      Ahh, the Indian who just got here now thinks is too American to be living near Indian population.

      Why would he want to live near Indian population? Might as well be in India then. He's in the US to experience a new culture.

      I did not get here now, I am here to experience other cultures and not just stay in my comfort zone.So, don’t judge.

    LMAO ruling out an entire state because of some stupid preconception. NJ is an awesome place to live and many towns have easy commutes to city. Matters more if you have or plan to have to kids

    I see a lot of people from Brooklyn. I am from Queens. I own a house here. It has good neighborhoods too. Commute ain’t bad. 30-1hrs.

    Crown heights is relatively cheap and good. Bedstuy and Bushwick are fun too. Williamsburg is overrated. Park slope if you're older. Brooklyn heights and dumbo if you're rich.

    Manhattan is okay but sucks to live in.

    While I lived in Jersey city but always wanted to move to Hoboken or Newport. Good PATH connectivity

    • How is PATH at rush hour? At capacity with all the high rises that have gone up?

    If you are open to other boroughs, Astoria in queens is pretty great, only 20-30 min into the city and the best Greek food. (Great food in general, TBH) if you really need to stick to Manhattan or Brooklyn, apts in the heights (above 145th st, west side) has great apartments. Also, it’s along the west side highway, and major train lines like (A,C,D,1,2 &3) which are express and local. I could get anywhere along the west side in 30 min, across down in 45-60 min.

    Depends on budget and priorities. UWS, Chelsea, West Village, UES, LES are all pretty good in Manhattan.

    Brooklyn: Williamsburg, Boerum Hill, Park Slope

    Manhattan: Tribeca, West Village, Alphabet City, Chelsea, Lower East Side, also Midtown generally. Upper West could be an option if you can commute by 123.

    Yes Hoboken is a nice place to live, you could take the 5 mins ferry across Hudson River to the city. It is very a lively place.

    You can find 1bed for ~4K in mid town around 8th Avenue, 45th st. Perfect location.
