Juniors cheese cake, near the brooklyn hospital. also near DUMBO and the manhantthan bridge. cobblestone streets and rich history

it is pretty cheap to live in this area, and it is close to most of things, so it is kind of easy to live in this area.

It is quiet, everything is nearby like grocery stores, toy/supplies stores and schools. There are also bakery, flower shop and parks.

They have outdoor activities nearby and my favorite business is Dunkin Donut and I like going to the field with friends and play

I live near the mall I love the restaurant and super market I am near McDonald's and the bank plenty of payspac

it safe transportation is near and good close to restautants bars where you could go with family and friends close to broadway shows

Searching for Houses in New York City

The rental market in New York City is different than any other in the country. While there are numerous houses that are available to rent, you must keep up with the city's fast pace and grab your dream house before someone else does. Regardless of where you choose to live in New York, delis, restaurants and grocery stores are always steps away from your home.

New York City is a vibrant metropolis made up of over 8 million people, and there are a variety of neighborhoods to choose from when searching for your next home. With access to many restaurants, bars and six different subway lines, Greenwich Village is a great place for young professionals with families who crave a short commute to work. For families who are looking for a more pleasant place to live in the big city, The Upper East Side has a number of houses for rent between East 60th Street and East 96th Street on the east side of Central Park.

The price range for houses in New York City varies, but expect to pay an average of $5,000-$7,000 per month in rent. Visit Rent.com's blog for tips on saving money.

Typical Layout for Houses in New York City

The majority of homes in New York will be updated with stainless steel appliances and modern kitchen and bathroom features, with many houses offering free furniture for the term of the lease. Prospective renters can expect a small- to medium-sized kitchen connected directly to the living room. Within the kitchen itself, many homes have a small breakfast nook or eating area with enough room for a small table. While most homes in the city offer access to the roof, they likely won't come with a balcony. You can expect to find a place of about 1,000-1,300 square feet.
