Hi everyone, I'm a recent college graduate and I just found a job in Tarrytown, NY. I've always wanted to live in NYC, so I'm planning to move there from PA. Please help me to look for a good area to live!

Right now, my budget is about $1200 or less per month on rent. I'm looking for a good/safe area that has an easy commute to Tarrytown. I prefer a 1 bedroom or studio apartment. I'm 23 years old, so hopefully it is/near a fairly young neighborhood.

Also, I'm completely unfamiliar with the subway system, so any help there is greatly appreciated, as well as, any general tips/advices for the move.

Thank you so much in advance!

If I were you I'd look locally in Westchester. You'll need a car to get from the train to your place of work, and keeping a car in the city without having a garage (which starts at about $400/month, not to mention the incredible insurance rate) is akin to hitting yourself over the head because it feels good to stop.

Do yourself a favor and look in Westchester.

The company that I would be working with has a shuttle that goes from the train station to the work site, and I am considering not taking my car with me if I was to actually move to the city. But wow, I didn't realize that it's so expensive to keep a car there.
