Hi, We (me and my wife) are planning to move to NYC around July this year and will be looking for 2 bed room rental apartments around Brooklyn Heights or Newport. As she will be joining school at NYU, so we prefer to stay at 15-20 minutes of commute distance.

We have a budget of around $2500 ... can stretch it up further by a couple of hundred more, depending upon proximity to subway/PATH.

Considering that safety is a priority for us along with commutable distance, any suggestions for the apartments, area, cost of living in and around Brooklyn Heights / Newport?

Thanks in advance.

Both are really nice neighborhoods....i'm biased towards Jersey City , but i do love Brooklyn Heights....there are also other neighborhoods in Jersey City like Historic Downtown or Paulus Hook where you can find something you might like or Hoboken.

I dunno a whole lot about jersey city, but $2,500 won't get you a two bedroom in Brooklyn Heights. A few hundred more may not either, depending on your definition of a few hundred more.

@availableusername : Couple of hundred can be construed as $2800-$2850.

@Nexis4Jersey : Thanks for your prompt responses.

Agree with this. . .

OP I did a little search on Corcoran ( I know not the ideal realty) but here are some of the prices for 2BD's

Corcoran, Manhattan, Brooklyn, New York, Homes For Rent, Real Estate, Properties, Apartments, Rentals

It didn't post correctly but pretty much the lowest price on the site for a 2BD is $3800
