Who is sponsoring your J1 visa? You cannot obtain any work in the US other than your internship or whatever program is sponsoring you.

Also, your sponsor should guide you in finding temporary housing and whatever paperwork you'll need to secure a rental.

This might be of some help to you all:
Information Resource Center for the New York Irish Community (http://www.newyorkirishcenter.org/information.htm#Irish%20Community%20Organizations - broken link)

There's a couple of neighborhoods throughout the city that still have large Irish populations. The only ones that I've been to are Woodlawn and Riverdale which are in the NW corner of the Bronx. This is a decent area. It's probably more affordable than Manhattan and you might be able to find jobs in a restauarant or bar here since there are many of these here. I'm sure other people here would be able to give some advice, but as somone who's been in these neighborhoods several times I can tell you there's a definite Irish presence here.
Good luck!

As posted above your J-1 is ONLY valid for the work your sponsor is bringing you over for. NOT for other work.

Somehow, I doubt that is going to be a hindrance.

I took a look at the USIT website and I feel like its more geared toward people doing and internship than people relocating to live and waitress...just a thought...

You need a VALID VISA (not a J-1) to work here. Check with the American consulate in Dublin.
