Hi Everyone,

I moved to LA from Philly but I hate this city so I'm anxious to move back east. I've lived in parkslope before but I really want to experince the joys of living in manhattan. Anyway, is it possible to find a decent studio in Chelsea, West Village or LES for $1650? I know it's probably a needle in a haystack but I figured it can't hurt to try. If you have any other neighborhood suggestions, please let me know. I'd like to live in a safe area with great vibes day and night if that makes sence.
Thanks in advance!

PS, I hope I don't have unrealistic expectations like another poster who wanted to live in an affluent all white neighborhood where they only speak "American".

Define "decent". But, yeah, you should be able to find a studio for $1650 in those neighborhoods. It won't be more than 300-400 sqft, and you won't have much of a kitchen, but that should be doable with some serious searching.

A friend found a studio which says is nice (I never saw it) on the Upper West Side last June for around that price. She found it on nybits or streeteasy so you could try those sites for an idea.

Nothing unrealistic.

The question is whether that poster or you can afford your wants.

If living in Manhattan is so important, then I suggest you find a roommate. Anything at your price will be a certain DUMP!
