NYC

Hey guys, where do you recommend for living near Times Square on a 70-80k base salary-- for my first year in the city? I’m budgeting $1500-2500 for my half as I’m expecting a roommate.

Have you established how often you will be working at Times Sq, not at clients. Hello Kitchen, Upper West, or Upper than that with the 2-3 express stops. Upper East near 2nd Ave line will also drop you off in TSq

Consider across Hudson River in NJ eg 6515 boulevard east West New York NJ has 700 square feet 1 bedroom apartments for rent at $1400 plus minus all to yourself. Bus right outside building puts you in port authority bus terminal in half hour. I used to live there.

@EY - I don’t understand! Why do you want to spend 30% - 40% of your salary on Housing? (Considering you make 100k on the whole).

Normandie Court on the UES - 15 min max to your office. Great for kids starting out and a lot more to do up there than people thing. Otherwise, look in Murray Hill or Hell’s Kitchen.

@ IB Associate 1, I hear Hell’s Kitchen a lot. Do you recommend any specific complexes?
