Hi, all. I am a new grad from Columbia Univ. and got a job in 20 street Manhattan.

I would like to ask some advice for apartments. Brooklyn or Manhattan, which I should choose.

In Manhattan, def more diverse and modern, more activities and bars. And also more safe relatively (right?)

In Brooklyn, with the same amount of money, you can def live better. The living condition should be better. But the dark side is it seems that there are not so many young people hanging out there. Relatively not that vitalily like the city.

My friend and I would like to rent a real two beds apartment. Our budget is 3000 around/mon. I checked out some Manhattan luxury buildings, real two beds apartments for 3000 around is def impossible.

I mean I like cool places and also want to live in a nice neighborhood. Which makes my life now so tough. Such a dilemma.

Any suggestions would be vastly appreciated.

Thx

I live in Brooklyn (Williamsburg) and it's ALL young people. No one in my building (aside from this one lady) is over 35.

This has to be a troll thread. You claim to have gone to Columbia yet know nothing about the city?

And yes Williamsburg is safe. I live off the Bedford stop.

Must be a troll unless they are a foreign student. They either are pretending or failed English at Columbia
University.

Don't you have another thread asking the exact same question?

Parts of Brooklyn can offer the same bars and activities that Manhattan can. You need to be concerned about what you can afford on your budget.

Manhattan and BK have become too over saturated and worshipped over, Be a real trailblazer and move to Staten Island and mix in with the locals, Do you and your buddy have the balls to do that?

Is this some sort kg of joke? Hip areas of Brooklyn is full of young people like yourself who just moved to NYC of recent college grads looking for opportunity. Brooklyn hip areas are full of young people mainly 20 something to even early 30 something , everyone is mainly s millennial cohort. Manhattan does have a diverse set of young people going out vs Brooklyn though which is mainly transplanted folks like yourself.

I came here like one and a half year ago and now graduating. I always stay near by my campus. Literally haven't been to Brooklyn a lot!
