What is the easiest way to find this? Where would I find the cheapest apt. in a safe area along this route? I have been looking around, but have not been able to find a website that shows available apts. according to subway location. Does one exist?

I've never seen a resource like that. But try looking in Parkchester, which should have relatively cheap rents and is on the 6 line. You can search on this forum for more info about the neighborhood.

Thanks. Parkchester is a bit too far though. I need to get to the upper LES. I am looking for ~20 minute commute.

Mott Haven, Hunts Point/Longwood area. But rents have risen there also... And might not be safe areas.

The only stops along the 6 train that you would probably consider safe AND cheap are in The Bronx,beyond Parkchester,probably in Pelham Bay.This is unless you are willing to consider some part of the East side of Manhattan "cheap".The third criteria that you have now added(~20 min commute) eliminates the only area that would meet the other two, so now you have to give up one of your criteria.Perceived safety? Commute time ? Affordability of rent? One of these has to go.You can't have everything.
Or you might switch gears and start looking along another subway line.
This is where the compromise that almost every New Yorker faces comes in to play.
Good luck.

I agree with bluedog. 20 minutes from the LES on the 6 only brings you to about 33rd st [Murray Hill] to the North and the Brooklyn Bridge stop, still in Manhattan. You may want to lengthen your required commute time if you are looking for cheap. I live right off the 6 in the 20s but I wouldn't consider it cheap... unless you want to find a place with a few roommates. Even with roommates, you are looking probably $1300+.

On the other end of the line, the 6 train has a stop at Canal Street, and some of the side streets in that area--Mott, Mulberry, Elizabeth--might be places to look for a reasonable deal.

There is a resource offered by Corcoran that allows you to search by subway line and then display all apartments at each stop and even sort by price, which is exactly what you're looking for.
