Where do most NYU Law students live? What are some of the neighborhoods I should target that are a good combo of price, convenience and quality?
I live in a super-low COL, but good-sized mid-west city, so going from my 1600 sq. ft. 3 level townhouse condo that I OWN for less than $800/month is going to be a BIG adjustment! Any help you can provide would be great haha.
I don't know specifically about NYU Law, but the majority of NYU undergrad students live in the areas mentioned in the poll. The other parts of downtown (Tribeca/Soho) are just waaaaay too expensive, and uptown is far away, expensive, and unexciting. Most NYU kids if they're going to live 25 minutes from school live in Brooklyn because it's cheaper, larger spaces, and a hipper environment.
My fav spot in Manhattan is the East Village. To live there, I'd probably choose Alphabet City because it's the cheaper, less hectic/more neighborhoody part of it. Doesn't have great transit links though.
