I am very likely moving to NYC soon and am at a place now to where I have to seriously start apartment hunting and finding a place to stay. Depending on how it all goes, I might even have to look for a roommate.
What I am looking for are the areas of the city where more of the younger crowd straight out of college or a few years removed from college gathers. Been living in suburban hell in my current city to save some cash, it is just a walk through boredom and dryness with people being married by the age of 25.
I was looking for areas that fit more of the bill and it seems like Williamsburg and Lower East Side of Manhattan come up a lot. Was thinking about what other places would fit the bill here and what I can expect for the typical rent to be.
