The $4m question. Okay, so a few weeks back a reader wrote in asking where she could find a place to live in NYC for under $2,000, and we recieved a great response - helpful too. But today we have an even better question:
I have just moved out of living with someone in the East Village (long story) and am looking for an apartment downtown (say south of 34th street) that won't cost me more than $1,000. I absolutely want to be in Manhattan and know this can be done, I just need a good tip. I am not picky, but I also don't want a roommate.
We once lived in an two bedroom in Little Italy for $800 a month and had to pay in cash for rent and utilities to the restaurant downstairs. We know of many instances like this, but these things are not listed. Anyone got a tip? (Thanks, Eliza!) MGR
