Hi - I am moving to New York in a few months. I will be working in the financial district but don't know where to live. Any suggestions? I can afford up to 2k a month. Also, I curious about how much more expensive the city really is compared to Hoboken or other out lying areas. It seems that it's not all that much cheaper based on some websites I found. What's the better choice? Live in the City or an out lying area?

I would live in Brooklyn or Hoboken-you will get a much better value, and it will be a very close commute-10-15 minutes. but it will be cleaner, quiet, bigger appartment and cheaper groceries. Look at Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope--they are as nice as Manhattan, Hoboken is also very nice
