I've read that I'll need to show proof of income in order to rent a place in NYC, but would this be necessary if I have a roommate or simply rent a room? I savings, but make my money writing freelance, so showing proof of salary can be difficult.

Usually that's the case if you sign a lease with a landlord who do checks. My guess is if you sublet from your roommate or have a lenient landlord who accepts cash it might be acceptable not to provide it? I've always signed leases, so not 100% sure.
