I have a friend who is a single mom with a 4 year old boy, looking to rent a room in Manhattan. Her budget is close to $1500 pm. Any leads for options in Midtown would be appreciated. Thanks

Tell her to look in Woodside queens. Express 7 stop puts you in midtown in no time. Be realistic here.

Yeah, this sounds like someone who doesn’t have their priorities straight. You can be in a small apartment in Flushing or Jackson Heights and be in midtown within 30 mins.

Moving to NYC from Canada and was hoping to sign a lease prior to arrival (I have friends that can view for me). How feasible is this? I’m assuming this happens a lot, but I’m sure landlords or building management would be skeptical if they haven’t had the chance to meet me. I just want to do everything as quick and efficiently as possible. I’ll also be shipping everything so I need to inform the moving company of a new address.
