Hi all,
I'm from Europe and will be moving to ny in April (I will be there only for one year). My husband and I have 2 kids (5 and 6). I was in ny 3 times but only as turist- so I don't know anything about where are safe neighbourhoods, how much is rent for 3-4 bedroom app. What do u think about neighbourhoods and rent prices. We would need something as close to Central park as possible.
thnx

Rent? Near Central Park? 3-4 bedrooms? AT LEAST $4000/month!!! Probably more. And that doesn't include electricity, cable TV, telephone, etc. It's hard to find apartments that are that big.

It's not that there aren't any apartments that big. There aren't many that big FOR RENT. Most are co-ops or condominiums and are for SALE.

Usually people start with their budget for rent per month and then ask about neighborhoods. Most Manhattan neighborhoods are nice, convenient, safe places to live, and the people who can afford them will live there. Other people who can't afford Manhattan prices may go elsewhere, like one of the other boroughs, for example, Queens or Brooklyn or the Bronx.

Hope that helps.

You can get a beautiful apartment on the Upper West or Upper East side. With a doorman. Mind you, I know someone with a one bedroom who spends $8000/month, but that's extreme!

Go to the Real estate section on the NY Times website The New York Times - Breaking News, World News & Multimedia , then select neighborhood, rent range and see what you get. If you don't select a rent range it will return results like $30,000 a month to rent some impossibly grand place.

That's a nice area. Right near the Metropolitan Museum and the park. Remember that you also have to pay for electricity, cable, internet, telephone.

But four people in a 2BR is going to feel cramped. And some people don't sublet to people with kids.
