Looking for a appartment to share from February to July 2013 !

Hey guys !

I'm looking for a place to live from February to July 2013. I'll be doing an internship in Midtown Manhattan during the spring semester.

I'm not very exigeant about the flat, I would just like to have a room in a shared apartment. As I don't know anyone in the big apple, it would be a good way to know people ! I would be looking for :
- a room around 700 - 800$ per month. but it's flexible, i'm just looking for the cheapest and nicest solution !
- a safe neighborhood
- ideally somewhere close to midtown manhattan
- last but not least: super cool roommates :) i wanna share more than discussions about rents with my new roommates!

So, let's talk a little bit about me. I'm French, 21, I was studying in the University of Rhode Island this semester, I'm very glad to extend my experience in the US with this internship. I'm peaceful, very enthusiast, I've already shared a room, and apartment when I was student in France and in Rhode Island, and everything went pretty well!

Feel free to drop me a line here: hello@latrmouh.org

See you!

I just had the answer from the owner, it's a little above with 850$ per month for the smallest room... *sigh*

Hi Leila and others,

If the previous poster didn't totally scare you off from the Bed Stuy neighborhood I have two bedrooms open in a three bedroom apt that I just moved into. Rent would be around $600-650, utilities and wifi included. I personally am enjoying the neighborhood and its architecture of beautiful brownstone row houses is quiet nice.

I can send you some pictures and particulars via a personal email if you'd like.

Let me know, thanks,

Hey Marta,

I think you mean Bedford-Stuyvesant, also known as BedStuy... these areas running north and south just to the east of Prospect Park are all fairly depressed economically.

I live in Bed Stuy now, and there are police on every corner. It is known as a more dangerous neighborhood, but to be honest, no place is nearly as bad in the city as it was just 10 or 20 years ago.. if you're riding a bicycle as a means of transport, you'll just whizz right by all the trouble. Also staying on main roadways which is pretty easy.. just using smarts.

And since the G train runs thru a few of these areas, and doesn't go into Manhattan, the rents will be a bit less than other parts of Brooklyn. The best thing you can do to learn is find a buddy to walk the streets with you or jump a bus, walk a few blocks, jump another bus, etc to get a sense of these areas.

Just a few quick notes to help you get situated.

Hope it helps.

have you already found something?
If not, would you like to share a studio apartment in Upper West Side, Manhattan?
This is the reference link:http://www.nyhabitat.com/new-york-apartment/roommate-share/14887

I will be studying at Eugene Lang and I need an apartment in that area too.
If you're interested, please send me a private message!

Cheers :)
