Or looking at the glass half full you could get a great roommate and have a active social life immediately. Some of my best friends to this day were roommates with my friends. I can’t think of an easier way to make friends in a new city. Especially now where every city/neighborhood seems to have a Facebook social group where people are always looking for roommates. Pretty easy to look at the poster’s photos/posts to see what they’re like vs classified ads back in the day. But you are right you could get a dud. Good luck

How about parks, any really nice ones?

Rent does seem to be noticeably cheaper just would like some more info on how it is for someone who likes to go out here and there and likes to stay active.

YOUR BEST bet would be to live near the train station that will take you to the free Ferry to Wall Street. If I am not mistaken, the train from Staten Island is free also. S.I. has lots of young people, and many clubs to go to.

Lots of Parks, the further South you go, the more you will find. Good-luck.
