What neighborhoods can you find a lot of apartments that rent for $750 or less?

This should be interesting. I don't know that there are any neighborhoods where you can find a lot of apartments that rent for $750 or less. But I would love to find out about them.

None that you'd wanna live in. None that have enough room to stretch your arms without hitting a crackhead who keeps breaking in to steal your stuff.

Megadell - couldn't have said it better myself. I don't even think the worst neighborhoods are this cheap. This is going to be interesting.

I found one in Crown Heights, basement with this hilarious catch:

BASEMENT IS NOT FINISHED AND YOU NEED TO FINISH IT YOURSELF.
IF YOU WANT I CAN DO IT FOR YOU ACCORDING YOUR PLANS BUT THE RENT WILL BE HIGHER THEN.

At least they're honest.

You can get one of those apartments with a partition, that I read about today in the NY Times, with the nice feature of NO WINDOWS. Or a hot sheet place where someone else sleeps in your bed while you're at work.

I lived over on Arnow , a block past allerton,for the past five years, and I was paying $700 dollars rent; it was a one bedroom apartment in a private house, it was very comfortable, neighborhood was peaceful, and my landlord was great. You can still find some deals in NY (bronx impaticular) you just really have to look

I think I read the same article. The example they used was a 5-apartment building in bushwick that the owner converted into a 12-unit building. The couple they interviewed rented out a room, which was about 23' x 12' (I think), with no kitchen, but they did have their own bathroom And if I remember correctly, they were paying $650 a month.

I guess for $750, I don't expect much above the example provided.

In regards to affordable housing, there is no other borough that compares to the Bronx. Although it is tough to find an apartment in this price range, there are very few 1 bedrooms, and some studios that you can get in this price range in the Bronx. When you get tired of roommate hell, it is a stepping stone and not a lifetime commitment, so nothing wrong with getting your own place even if it is at this price range.
