It is easy for you to say - just to move out - moving out and find a new place to live without pre-planning can be pretty harsh.

It sounds like you have no choice but to just get a new place. You had a month to month lease, the landlord gave you 30 days notice and the place is being demolished. You'd better use your time online to find a new place to stay, even if you have ti rent out a ROOM!

It is probably easier to have more time to think about moving and to get started on packing and organizing. But if you think about it, in NYC, you really can't find an apartment more than 30 days before you want your next lease to start anyway.

In reality, you have two choices -- one is to move by the proper date, and the other is to stay past that date and let him start eviction proceedings, which will then make it even that much harder when you do move because no landlord will accept you.

You were on a month to month lease. What kind of advice were you expecting exactly?

Start browsing Craiglist and other resources and hit the pavement.

Start packing! *LOL*

Seriously what are you expecting? You've a month to month gig and the landlord is telling you your "lease" such as it is will not be renewed. Thirty days notice has been given and you'd be wise to start looking for someplace ASAP. Even *if* you somehow manage to obtain some sort of extension if the building is slated for demolition it will not be for long. Think days or maybe a week in order to get things out, not a month or months to continue living in the place.

If it's hard to find a new place in New York, you can always looks outside New York. In New Jersey perhaps. You can always live in New Jersey while you look for a new place in New York.

It is not hard to find an apartment to move out to and do it within in a month. It is just time consuming to find the one you want and just because it takes time doesn't mean its 'hard'. Besides you had a month to month so what were ya expecting (as others have pointed out).

Worst come to worst, get a storage locker, storage your stuff there, find a friend or family to crash at while you finish your apartment hunt.

Just heads-up, people often throw out thing like hey look into NJ. But please note that finding an apartment in NJ is bigger time sink if you are under time crunch because if you aren't familiar with NJ. Then you obviously need to spend the extra time to find out which areas work for you, how to commute, what the cost would be, etc. Also certain parts of NJ are little bit cheaper than Manhattan.
