If you define your budget, what kind of commute you're okay with, and what type of place you want to live in (both apartment and type of neighborhood), we can help you narrow your focus and give you an idea of what you can get. It can be hard to look for apartments here from afar, especially if you're not looking at an apartment building--many rentals here are in two- or three-family homes with small-time landlords. The big managed buildings are newer and expensive.

Yes, this. The Garden has very good transit access--two subway lines and a commuter rail go through there. Your budget is more important and depending on that, what sort of neighborhood you want.

Right now we're doing $800 for an 800 sq ft house,but we're out in the country. Not sure what even comes close to that around there. My commute is currently around 45 min for 35 mi,but again that's in the sticks. I'd try to keep commute under an hour if possible...

Will your salary change with the transfer? If you're looking to spend $800 on housing, don't make the move.

What is your budget? Not what you're paying now. And you say "we", who is we? How many rooms do you need.
