Agree about South Brooklyn. I am thankful for this. Area stays quiet, unassuming, clean. If I want festivities and crowds I can venture out for a day.

Excuse me... I'm just going to catch up. So the OP sorta moved from some "boring" place and the rent amount for a room in NYC isn't exciting enough? That's the main attraction! I do love the LifeAdvisor name.

Feel sorry for all you young cats.

I have repeated this on my numerous posts.
As a young single person renting.......
You have to make at least $100,000 a year take home to live comfortably and put away some money in New York.
You can squeeze by on $50,000 a year take home but you won't be able to save a dime.

If you are paying $1200 to $1800 a month can I assume you are in the $50,000 a year and under range?
If so, get a better paying job,work a second job,etc...

Renting should be for retirees only..
You need to save the most money in the shortest amount of time with the goal of home ownership.
If you rent early on in life you will never own anything.
This is different for pensioner retirees who have sold their homes and now choose to rent to avoid home upkeep.


I am witnessing young kids landing good jobs but living in PA or way upstate NY sacrificing travel (2 hrs. daily each way)
for future home ownership.
You can pick up a home in the Poconos for $30,000 $40,000 with little down.
A $40,000 home for 30 years at 4% should run about $189 a month.
Add in $2,000 a year in property taxes for about $170 a month
Home insurance $500 a year at $41 a month
Gasoline and car insurance $200 a week at $800 per month
Tolls: $6000 a year or $500 per month
Utilities $200 per month
Food Clothes $200 per week at $ 800 per month

That's totals about $2,500 a month which can be had on $50,000 a year pay.

Avoid renting if possible at all costs in NY.

Hope this helps.

I call BS. You don't need to make that.
And also not everyone dreams of being a home owner
