Sorry to bring this back up, can anyone else comment on this? I am looking for a 1BR or Studio for my 1L, and everything in collegetown seems very overpriced. I'd be willing to pay 800/month for Hasbrouck, but need opinions and advice. Thank you
When I went up to get my apartment, I took a look at the Carriage House Apartments (a little farther away, but close to Hasbrouck), and I drove around Hasbrouck (I didn't make an appointment to look inside). The woman told me that most people walk to Lot A and take the bus in from there.
Hasbrouck has a parking lot across the street from it, and I couldn't really find parking anywhere else when I drove around on campus. If you look at the map, there doesn't seem to be any parking near the law school (unless I'm missing it). http://www.cornell.edu/maps/large.cfm
I do know that there were a lot of places in Collegetown and Lower Collegetown that offered parking spots to rent for ~60 a month, but I don't know if anyone drives in and parks at Collegetown and walks in.
I noticed a lot of cheap apartments in Lower Collegetown, and I signed a lease for a studio there. It was a shorter distance to the law school, and all the restaurants and stores were closer. The only negative seemed to be the giant hill to walk up.
