Hi All! I will be moving to NYC in June to begin working (finance industry) after graduation. I will be making $60k and my boyfriend expects to make $35-45k. We are thinking of a studio or small 1 BR - maybe midtown, gramercy, financial dist, or brooklyn heights areas. We wouldn't be against sharing with roommates to get costs down too.
Any thoughts on if this sounds reasonable? Or more specific suggestions on areas to live in? I was in NYC all summer for an internship so I'm familiar with the areas.
Also, what can we expect in terms of typical monthly expenses (cable, electric, renter's insurance, groceries, etc...?)
Thanks in advance for your help!
