I'm moving to NYC in February. I saw an earlier thread on this, but I have slightly different questions. I will be working with a law firm in Manhattan (Financial District). I want to rent before I buy. I have NO idea what areas are convenient commutes to the city (under an hour). In terms of price, I don't want to spend alot of money (no more than $1500). Any guidance would be appreciated!!! I'm interested in both NJ and NY areas. Thank you so much!

Studio, 1bdrm? What kind of neighborhood do you like? Quiet? Loud? $1500/mo is going to exclude you pretty much from Manhattan, but you can easily find something within an hour of there. I'm thinking NJ or a decent part of Brooklyn for your downtown commute, offhand.

Hi! Thanks for the replies! I have no kids, it's just me. I have pretty much narrowed it down to Brooklyn. I feel pretty good about living there. Haven't been there yet..lol..but I've been doing some independent research on my own. I'm a 27 y/o female, so I really want to be around young professionals like myself. Now that I've narrowed it down, any suggestions on Brooklyn neighborhoods?? I have a car, and I have NO IDEA what I'm going to do with it. How's parking in BK? I'm in D.C. now and I would like an area that sort of feels like one of the safe D.C. neighborhoods! Home away from home I guess...Thanks in advance for the help.
