Thoughts on the area around 15th and 6th? New to the city.

I’ve lived in this area for about 3 years. I like it a lot for the convenience being nearby the 14th st subway hub. Short walk to West Village, Chelsea, Westside highway and Union Square. Not much nightlife in the immediate area but it’s nice because it’s relatively quieter than other areas. Downside is it can be pretty dirty with trash and the thru traffic with subway being close by. Avoid 14th street between 5th and 7th Ave - steep drop off in livability


Agree with everything above. I live on 15th btwn 5-6th ave. I do think 14th st will get a lot nicer as the luxury condos on either side of 6th Ave fill up.

But until then, avoid that part of 14th st like the plague.

She needs to ask the CEO (not sure why she couldn’t ask the senior HR manager)
I state my salary expectations based on research, experience, education.
She has to talk to the CEO again to find out what is negotiable within the overall package
What’s going on? Ur job is to negotiate?

Roommate and I negotiated a 2-year lease at only 5% rent increase from a covid apartment deal. This place was undervalued last fall too when a wave of people moved to the city. Could have easily fetched +10% but the management office liked us for consistently paying our rent on time. There’s still hope out there for anyone willing to resign for more than 1 year.
