Default Nice safe affordable places to live in NYC

Hi everyone! I am planning on moving to NYC and wanted to know which places are the best to stay in. I want an affordable place that is also safe. Prefer manhattan maybe? I also have 2 dogs. A 10 pound shihtsu and a 45 pound pit bull. So they would also have to be pet friendly. I currently live in los angeles and its sorta hard to find a place that takes pit bulls. Is nyc the same way predjudice against the breed? Will it b harder to rent? thanks!

What do you consider affordable? A budget would be helpful. Also, many rental buildings either don't allow dogs or have weight limits on dogs.

First, that won't get you much in Manhattan - if anything. And, yes, your dogs will be an issue in many places....How about Queens or Brooklyn?

For $1500 you can get a nice 1-2 bedroom apartment in Yonkers. Yonkers is a short commute to Midtown and is very dog friendly. However, there has been a crackdown by NYPD and YPD to fine dog owners' dogs caught defecating in the public. The fine has gone up from $50 to $100.

Yes, any dogs would be an issue, and two more so than one.

Pit bulls in particular, I would think.

I'm kind of in the same boat so I'd be curious to hear how things turn out for you. My fiance and I have two "pit bulls" (American Staffordshire Terriers, specifically), and we're currently living with her family. But I worry how finding my own place is going to be when I start looking sometime next year...

Ummm...Not in NYC. And you still have to get your New York State license.
