Strategies for Finding a NYC Apartment?

Good Questions

Pin it button
Q: I am looking for an apartment for next year, and I have been looking through craigslist to see if I can find an apartment either in Manhattan or Brooklyn. I have been looking through the no fee section, but I guess tons of people look through that also. My question is, how do most people in NY find their apartments? Do most people pay a realtor fee? What is the fee usually? I sort of find it pointless to pay someone 10%-20% of a years rent for seeing an apartment? What other websites are there for looking for apartments?
