Im looking for a place to move anywhere in NYC that is in a safe area and the max that I would pay for in rent is 1500 a month. Studio or one bedroom doesn't matter, thanks

I was really lucky to get the place. I actually found the apartment through a newspaper ad surprisingly. I suggest you go on Craigslist. Sometimes I'll see apartment windows with "for rent" signs. Good luck!

It looks like though I'll be moving out very soon.

Quite refreshing you found it in that method hehe. How come you're moving out though?

Do you think living in chelsea/ the village has the same price apartments as your place?

I looked through the Daily News yesterday (only for a Sunday subscription for the TV Guide) and there was a "new 3 bedroom, 2 bath, on 63rd Ave, in Rego Park" advertised for "$1700/month with hardwood floors and 2 balconies ." It's a block from the Subway (M, R trains on Queens Blvd.)

So I agree with KRISTIN: Don't overlook the old fashioned Want Ads and be ready to act in an instant.

DO check out Rego Park...a nice safe area, not beautiful but perfectly adequate.

Thank you King, that place sounds like a palace, too bad I don't need 3 bedrooms,2 baths or 2 balconies. Im living by myself and don't want any roomates. Im fine with not having the best apt, just a decent one.

But yes I'll look out for rego park. Im also interested in bay ridge, brooklyn heights, chelsea and the village hmm...

Rego Park, Forest Hills (for a studio apt.), Astoria in Queens are all affordable on your budget and reasonable safe areas.
