Argyle is very close to Crescent Street which looks very trendy.... my work location is very close to Crescent as well.

Either way, it really doesn't matter which neighbourhood you're in while studying at Concordia. I studied there, rented in Verdun, and I found taking the metro to Guy-Concordia an absolute breeze. Other students from out of town lived in the Plateau, NDG, Rosemont, CDN, etc. etc.

One piece of advice I got before moving there was *not* to live downtown, and I'm glad I took. Montreal is unique in that you can find an interesting neighbourhood to claim your turf there. All of the fun and interesting stuff to do is not downtown anyways and is easily accessible by metro.

$1000-1200 is more than enough to live like a king there. You can find a decent 3 1/2 from $600-800 in an awesome neighbourhood.
If guitcomp wants to live in one of the tall concrete towers, $1000 or so is needed.

I am looking at furnished studios, and they tend to be a bit further away and in the $1500 range, but they all are very nicely furnished and often include gyms (a big plus).

I am looking at Argyle, Trylon, and La Cite, if anyone has any opinions.

I will be in town to search next week, so I'm gearing up!

Merci!
laCite is really nice.
I can't afford to live there lol.

I just used the Navut.com website and got Griffintown and NDG as the best areas.
