Found sweet 3-br a 5 min walk from Grove Street PATH station. $900/month/roommate.
See what I mean? Half the price of most NYU housing, in a wonderful area, with easy access to the school, yet NYU would NEVER advertise these options since the $$ doesn't come back to them.
Well, the NYU housing is $1200ish/month, no? (And they have a bunch of resources for people who are looking for off-campus housing: http://www.law.nyu.edu/housing/offcampu ... /index.htm.
Still sizeable difference, though, you're right. And really quite convenient.
Of course, looks pretty easy to get 6 or 700/month in Queens....
1200 a month? The very cheapest option I saw was 1300+, and those went immediately since they were the least expensive. The majority of options seemed to be in the 1500-2000/month range.
