Overview of New York

Whether you want to move to Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan or the other boroughs, you'll be able to find cheap apartments for rent with ease when you use Rent.com.

The best part about living in New York City is that you have your pick of different areas that have cultural diversity and good places to eat. For example, over in Brooklyn near Carroll Gardens and Boerum Hill, you'll be surrounded by pizzerias like South Brooklyn Pizza, Not Ray's, Sottocasa and Fornino.

You'll also have easy access to the subway system, which is a great way to save some money instead of taking a taxi or driving to work. In Brooklyn, there are subway entrances all along Flatbush and Atlantic Avenue as well as on 4th Avenue. If you decide to move to Queens, there you can hop on the subway at Hillside Avenue or Jamaica Avenue. On Jamaica Avenue near the Van Wyck Expressway, you can take the train, which will get you to Brooklyn and Manhattan.

Finding a Cheap Apartment in New York

Moving to Manhattan is a great idea for families as well as young, single people. You can easily go to Central Park where you can have a day of fun without spending a penny. There are sports fields, picnic areas and lakes throughout the park for you to enjoy. If you like to stay fit, the park is the perfect place to go for a jog on one of the many running trails.

You'll be able to find cheap apartments for rent in New York that are typically between $1,100 and $1,400 per month. Using public transportation and eating frugally can help you save money, but you can find more money-saving tips at this Rent.com blog post. One of the tips is about saving money by eating at home, and you can buy groceries at one of the nearby farmers markets or Greenmarket.

What to Look for in Cheap Apartments in New York

When you're looking for cheap apartments, it's important to think about the amenities that will be included and decide what is of importance to you. Many of the apartments don't come with in-unit washers and dryers, but some of the complexes have an onsite laundromat, or perhaps you can find one within close walking distance. Some of the apartments come with recently renovated features like stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and hardwood floors. The size of these apartments can range from 800 to 1,200 square feet. You can also save some money by signing a longer lease if you love your apartment. You'll get a better deal when you sign for two years than you would for six or 12 months.
