Hi,

I am graduating from college in May, and I am planning on moving to NYC from Florida. I know I am going to want to get a sublet when I move, but when should I start looking? Should I plan a trip to NYC around April to actually look at the apartments? I know I should look for sublets on craigslist, is it possible to get one without actually taking a trip to NYC before my moving date?

Is there any other advice anyone has?

Thanks!

I Know two Floridians who move to NYC. AKA Gator Girls. They both lived in sublet apartments in Manhattan were the rent was 2500 or of some sort and for the past couple of years they have been working office jobs making entry level money. MY best bet is to avoid Manhattan and check out the shoreline of the BRonx and Queens with its cool hip areas full of out of towners like yourself and close to Manhattan. But you may wanna live the Manhattan life style aswell with your other fellow out of towners who pay more then 2000 to 3000 dollars worth of rent. I have a few Floridians who live where I work. So many young Floridians are moving to NYC. Damn Florida must suck, maybe because to many NEw yorkers live there!

South Florida is basically a hospice for people the New York area. As my mom (who lives there) calls it... death's waiting room.

And don't ever consider renting sight unseen. (Geez, I hate that idiom...seems it should be site unseen, especially with an appartment...but I guess that;s why they're called idioms.)


If you have a job lined up maybe you can talk your employer into putting you up in a hotel for a couple weeks while you explore.
