I'm going to be moving in on August 1st, and I'll probably be driving down to the city on either the last weekend in June or the second weekend in July (the first weekend is out, since the 4th is that Saturday) to scope out apartments. Do you current city-dwellers think one or the other would be better? Should I set up appointments beforehand or just wing it once I'm down there?
I'm such a noob when it comes to this. I found my apartment in Boston in about an hour.... it was the most painless process ever.
Other than having to find an apartment, I'm pumped for school to start. I'm also excited to have almost 3 full weeks to kill in New York before orientation.... would anyone be down for some pre-school drinks?
I'm in a similar situation. Currently subletting in NYC, going home for 5 weeks, and then coming back August 1st and crashing in my old apt and moving as soon as a I find a place. Generally the turnover in the NYC from what I can gather is 2-4 weeks to get a place. If you come in June you may still be finding a lot of place that are looking for a July 1st move in, so I would recommend the second weekend in July, and worst case scenario, come back the following week? I'd try and set up a few things in advance just so you have a starting point. Do you know where you're looking to move and what kind of place you want? (studio, 1 bedroom etc)
Anyways I shall also be around for those three weeks(altho probably frantically searching for an apt) and would be down for TLS drinks.
