Do any of you live in these areas? Any specific area you'd recommend? (Queens, Brooklyn)
What would I be looking at for rent? (1 bedroom apt. for the two of us)
Any other advice about moving to the big apple would be appreciated.
(I currently live in upstate NY)
Rent can vary widely. Will you riding the subway? Familiarize yourself with what train you need and then start looking from there.
Here's prices from craigslist
If you have a car, you going to need to find a neighborhood you can park it. Parking can be very, very tight.
