I'll be starting full-time in NYC this summer and I was just curious about how much I should spend on rent. I know for NYC you don't need to start looking for housing until it gets closer, but I figured I'd begin thinking about it regardless.
If I were to live in Murray Hill/Turtle Bay/Kips Bay (i.e. Midtown East area) with a roommate, how much should I realistically spend? Is it worth flexing a 1 bed/1 bath or flexing a 2 bed/2 bath (and getting a third roommate)? Or would spending around $2,100/person each month be worth it to have my own bathroom (in a 2 bed/2 bath)? Curious what other people have done in the past.
