For those of you who have interned in NYC during the summer before, where are some of the best options?
I'm going to be working on the waterfront near to Wall Street.
Is it worth it to pay extra for an apartment that's walking distance away from my job?
Also, is it better to rent out an apartment with a friend of mine, or should I try to get into one of those summer student housing programs like NYU, Columbia or www.studenthousing.org ?
My friend and I are looking for the best balance of price, proximity to workplace (he's working @ the same bank too) and few living restrictions.
