First Year Analyst class June 2011

I am recent grad that got offered by a BB for their 2011 Analyst Class. I accepted so I will be moving to NYC in June. I know mostly all of wall street brings in new full time analyst in the summer months. I was wondering if anybody is looking for roommates, or has any thoughts on where to live, etc. I was hoping to find roommates who are also young professionals.

Great, what school you from?

I only room with whartonites.

No, i'm not a Whartonite. Maybe for MBA. But I graduated Kennesaw State, the 2nd largest school in GA after UGA.

Where are you looking to live?

Doesn't matter to me, Just as long as its nice and convenient. I've been looking at everything from brownstones in Brooklyn to Luxury high-rise's in FiDi.

Someone created a similar thread a while back which had a lot of replies. Search for it.

Yeah thanks, I found it after I posed mine.

Whatever you do, don't live in the boroughs. If you're working in Midtown, look at Murray Hill or Clinton/Midtown West. FiDi might be a stretch, 20-30 minute commute kills.

Really? why is that? I heard a lot of analyst say they live in brooklyn.

What!? Most people have a complete loathing of anything beyond the island. If anything, live in Jersey City (or just PM IlliniProgrammer, he'll give you a dissertation on the topic). The thing is that if you're working 80-120 hours a week, the last thing you want to do after hours at the office is spend any length of time getting back and forth to/from your place for the next day.

If anyone was living in Brooklyn I imagine they'd be working down in FiDi.

Yeah that is is one thing that was on my mind. After long hours I definitely don't want to spend a long time getting home. My office is going to be right by Grand Central. What about uptown area? like harlem.

Also I don't know anything about the NYC subway system. What trains could I hop on that would go Straight to Grand central. I don't want to have to transfer at all.

Its not that hard to navigate if you just take a look at the map for a few minutes. http://www.mta.info/nyct/maps/submap.htm

It looks to me that you're going ot have to live near the green line (4, 5, 6) if you don't want to transfer, though the shuttle between TS and GC runs often. However, during the summer, spending any additional time in a subway station is far from ideal.

When people say that Harlem is gentrifying, are they referring to east or west or both?

 

Thanks for the tip that would definitely suck. The reason I considered Harlem was because I heard its been gentrifying for a little while and there are supposedly some really nice places that are underpriced at the moment.

Thanks! in reference to the gentrifying, I don't know. I just know that new condo's with all the perks (doorman, lounge, etc...) have been going up in the area recently.

Trains are not that hard to master, they lines are normally 3 blocks apart east/west tops and all run north/south, only the L crosses and it does that at 14th.

If you're in Midtown, live in MH or Clinton. MH is a fairly fratty district, tons of young professionals right out of undergrads so that's the crowd at the bars there. You could swing Gramercy if you found something on its western edge so you were still close to the 456, but you might not be. Look in the 30s-50s, both east and west. Anything below NoHo or above upper Midtown is just too far for you.

Thanks. Thats exactly where i'm looking for, somewhere where alot of young professionals live.

No problem. I don't know if you've already found brokers, but if you just want to find some decent properties online, check levelgroup.com or anchornyc.com, if you can pinpoint some buildings but want to use a broker you already know just let them know about the place and go through your preferred.

cool i'll do that....What do you know about Flex apartments, are they worth it? Like ive seen some OK prices 3BR flex. meaning its a 2BR they turned into a 3br with the walls and what not. The reason I ask is because my roommates and I would have a chance to live in an amazing building (doorman, lounge, indoor pool, etc...) for not too bad a price.

Depends on what you're willing to sacrifice and if you can deal with the cost of putting up the flex. A very few companies will cover the cost of the wall if you're willing to sign like an 18- or 24-month, but not many will.
