I have a room available in StuyTown if you’re interested! It’s a great area and very accessible to LGA and JFK.

Make sure to get your subway pass with pretax money. Totally worth it

I’m a CPA and everyone automatically assumes that I know everything about taxes and always ask me questions. That being said I have a friend who owns multiple investment properties as an LLC but wanted to inquire about potentially forming an S Corp, so I told her the basics but wanted to actually give her more in depth info. If someone could help me out I would appreciate, a DM is ok as well so we could exchange contact info.

I would like to spend a month or little less in NYC to get a feeling for it before I make the decision to move there. Dont have a crazy budget to get a hotel for a month and airbnb fees are stupid high. What other options do I have?

I may be relocating for a new job as early as Mar, Apr latest. Looking to sublet or lease takeover my 2br 1ba 3rd floor walk up in West Village (1 block from Christopher St station) which is rent stabilized for under $3.2k. Lease goes through end of Aug 2021

Rent stab means this rate will hold with 1-3% annual increases (no risk of big rent jumps).

Pretty much a unicorn, sad to give it up. I should know in next 2-3 wks about the new job but wanted to gauge interest.
