I have a cousin who rents space for an art studio in Williamsburg, but she actually lives in Park Slope. So you might have to live in a different area according to your budget rather than an area where there are many artists.

Art Deco...Is a haven for artists/hipsters/beatniks/homosexuals/lesbians/mushroom heads. They like old renovated apt's with historical value and vintage but yet detuned bikes too meet biking criteria in the year 2013.

Right now, I'm looking into Brooklyn, South/Northern Bronx, and Elmhurst in Queens. Shooting for a place around $600 - $1000, one bedroom/studio or shared room.

Can anyone give me some suggestions or shed some light on where those places might be these days? A friend said Williamsburg is a good place but I doubt I can afford it... perhaps Bushwick?

Much appreciated, fellow over-timers!

Sincerely,

If you're a real artist and not a poseur, you'll be mainly interested in affordable space to do your thing, not the presence of hordes of your co-poseurs hanging out all day in coffee cafes. The presence of the second raises the price of the first out of reach.

Good point. Also, for artists and investors both, you have the best gains when you are among the first to come to an area, before it gets really popular. If you wait until the area is totally trendy, you won't make the same kinds of gains or get the best deals.
