Hi All:

I'll be graduating soon and making the move to NYC over the summer. To get a head start on finding a place, I figure I'll visit the city over spring break to get a feel for the different areas and apartments within my range (My range is between $1200-1800, either with or without a roommate). Also, I'll be working in Midtown East, so something relatively close would be ideal (a commute less than 20 minutes).

Does anyone have tips on how I should go about this process? Should I make appointments with brokers or just walk around the city and go directly to management offices for buildings I'm potentially interested in? Also, what areas would fall within my price range and be close to Midtown East?

I've heard Midtown East itself, Murray Hill, Midtown West, Hell's Kitchen, and FiDi might be potential living areas with lower than average rents (relative to Manhattan) and short commuting times to Midtown East.

Thanks in advance!
