Breezy Point?

Most Irish community in America, or something like that. Took a lot of damage in the Hurricane. Likely need new faces.

Any reputable landlord is going to want you to have a job, credit and references. You could get a place that's shady if you wanted it - but any good place for the most part is going to want to check you out creditwise.

Did you click on the links in post #19?
Between the 5 of you, no one has friends or relatives here, to assist?

Don't waste your time with Breezy Point. Area is very hostile towards anyone who doesnt own a home there.

It's a private cooperative to own there. That's how they've kept it Irish for so long. I've seen many listings for rentals over the years, and I've heard from a friend who used to go there every Summer that there are a lot of Hispanics living there now, presumably renters.

Woodlawn. As Irish as it has ever been. And just over the Woodlawn border in Yonkers. Drive along McLean Avenue in Yonkers and count all the Irish pubs and restaurants. You will feel right at home.

Hasidic Jews. 1/3 of everyone in the county is Jewish. That's even higher than Brooklyn.

But for the Irish? Not so great.

We're getting worried as we only have 2 weeks to find somewhere!
Do you have to stay in a certain area because of jobs & transportation, and if so, where about do you need to commute to? How far are you willing to travel to get there?

McLean Ave in Yonkers is an Irish neighborhood where new arrivals thrive. A few blocks south of McLean into the Bronx is Katonah Ave. As mentioned above, hit the pubs. Rory Dolan's at 890 McLean off Kimball Ave is the biggest and best bet.
Metro North train from Grand Central to the Woodlawn station is quickest transit and stops only a few blocks from Katonah Ave. By subway the 2 train to Nereid Ave is a walkable half mile to the east of McLean Ave.
