I'm going to Manhattan for 2 weeks in July with the main focus of exploring local areas and finding the best fit for me. I know about most sites that show NYC apartments, but this question is for those that live in Manhattan right now.

Is there anywhere in the city I can go to for apartment listings. Local papers? Certain companies? Besides craigslist where can I go (on foot) that would really help me?

Thank you

I don't live in Manhattan but I work there. Often residential buildings have signs on them with the number to call if you are interested in renting. One way might be to arrive in the city with an idea of neighborhoods that are possibilities based on a website search, then walk to those neighborhoods to get a feel for the area. If you see a sign (it's usual a property management company), call them and ask if there are any vacancies and if you can see an apartment. You should probably see different apartments in different neighborhoods. Good luck!
