What Renters Like and Dislike About New York

Juniors cheese cake, near the brooklyn hospital. also near DUMBO and the manhantthan bridge. cobblestone streets and rich history

it is pretty cheap to live in this area, and it is close to most of things, so it is kind of easy to live in this area.

Living in New York, NY

EVERYTHING TO KNOW ABOUT RENTING AN APARTMENT IN NEW YORK, NY

There’s no need to introduce New York since it's arguably the most famous city on the planet. Filled with diverse culture, art, music and commerce, New York City is a fun and exciting place to live. You’ll also find great universities there such as New York University and Columbia University. Apartments for rent in New York may be a bit pricier than other cities but it’s worth it.

THE BEST NEIGHBORHOODS TO FIND APARTMENTS FOR RENT IN NEW YORK

If you are looking for apartments for rent in New York, you have many great location options. From high-rises to industrial lofts, New York City has it all. Here are some great neighborhoods to explore:

  • Co-op City: Located in the Baychester section of the Bronx, Co-op City is a “city within a city” with 35 high-rise buildings offering co-operative housing, the largest housing cooperative on the planet.
  • Downtown Manhattan: Downtown Manhattan, aka Lower Manhattan, encompasses the financial district, Chinatown, Greenwich Village, Chelsea and other great little neighborhoods.
  • Harlem: The home of African-American culture in Upper Manhattan, Harlem offers authentic soul food, great music and quick access to Central Park and other parts of Manhattan.
  • Midtown Manhattan: Midtown Manhattan gives you everything the city has to offer – a centralized location with access to restaurants, museums, shops and tourist attractions such as Time Square.
  • Northern Brooklyn: This exciting area to live is just across the river from Manhattan and is bordered by Queens. It’s also considered the arts capital of New York.
  • South Brooklyn: South Brooklyn is actually not the southernmost part of Brooklyn (it was named for its location along the waterfront). It’s a great place for culture and connection.
  • Upper East Side: This posh area runs along the east side of Central Park and includes the famed Guggenheim Museum.
  • Upper Manhattan: This northern part of Manhattan is loosely defined on the south by 96th Street or the northern part of Central Park. It includes the neighborhoods of Harlem, Marble Hill, Inwood and Washington Heights.
  • Upper West Side: Located on the New Jersey side of Manhattan Island, west of Central Park, this affluent area is a great location if you work in Manhattan.
  • Williamsburg: Part of Northern Brooklyn, this gentrified neighborhood offers urban lofts and apartments repurposed from warehouses along with cafes and unique shops.

FUN THINGS TO DO IN NEW YORK

New York City pretty much has everything you might want to do for fun (except mountain skiing!), including museums, parks, shopping and fine dining. Here are just a few of the things you can do and explore after looking for apartments for rent in New York:

  • If you like history, then you’ll love exploring the American Museum of Natural History.
  • Arguably the best feature of Manhattan is Central Park, one of the best urban parks in the world.
  • Even if you have been in New York for a while, taking a boat tour around Manhattan Island with Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises is well worth it.
  • The Garment District is a great place to visit if you love fashion — from mind-blowing showrooms to fabrics galore.
  • The Guggenheim Museum, located next to Central Park, may not be the largest museum in the city but it may be the most interesting. The building itself is a work of art.
  • The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is something the kids will love – it’s a museum of ships, big ships, including an aircraft carrier and a submarine!
  • Located in Times Square, Madame Tussauds New York is the world-famous wax museum worth visiting at least once in a lifetime.
  • The Museum of Modern Art is one of the best museums in the city and is known for its renowned collection of modern art.
  • The National September 11 Memorial is located where the former World Trade Center towers stood. This is perhaps more of a somber trip than a “fun” one, but an important place to visit.
  • Sure, it’s touristy, but Times Square is still fun to explore and there are lots of great little restaurants and shops in the area.

GETAWAYS FROM NEW YORK

You may be enjoying living in apartments for rent in New York but once in a while, you need to getaway. Fortunately, New York has many places to escape to. If you love the beach, New Jersey has a lot of sandy shorelines, from Long Beach Island to the famous Atlantic City, unless you prefer the posh Hamptons. A quick train ride will get you to Philadelphia, which offers a lot to see and do (including the original Liberty Bell). Or, go enjoy some nature in upstate New York and hit the Catskills.
