NYU LLM


What areas would you live in while receiving an LLM from NYU? Anybody who has or is currently in a program at NYU, any advice on how to find a good place to live?

I haven't looked much but I'm pretty sure you won't get anything in manhattan for 1300. Does anybody who knows the area have any thoughts about somebody living in brooklyn while attending nyu?

New York City dweller here.

You can certainly find $1300 single bedroom apartments in Manhattan. It depends where. For example, try searching in Murray Hill. I live in an apartment in a different neighborhood costing less than that (and which is within reasonable distance of NYU).

Brooklyn to NYU: again, obviously depends where. I intend to live in BK next year and commute.

Thank you
How long will it take from Murry Hill to NYU ?
Could you please introduce some good rental website for me ? I'm very new to this.

Thanks a lot

I've heard pretty great things about NYU housing (d'agostino & mercer), haven't you ? or would you just rather get a place on your own ?

The problem with NYU housing as far as I'm concerned is that it's very hard to get a studio -- damn near impossible for LLM's and first-year JD's because they have already had a lottery for continuing students. I'm not really thrilled about sharing an apartment and having to divvy up cleaning chores for the kitchen and bath. I would even have preferred a dorm room as in college. At least with a dorm room, it's your own little space and the school cleaning staff cleans the common areas such as dorm bathrooms as well as the kitchens/cafeterias. So while I would have preferred to live in a dorm, I think I'm going to find a studio nearby.

Rbp....I m still a bit confused about the housing at NYU. Many of the LLms today showed their preferences for Mercer Street though a bit farther. I would prefer to take a single studio in a close area........have u got any idea on residences....or nice apartment websites?? I could also share an apartment with another student but I don t want to be stressed with a unclean or bad mannered person

I don't really know New York City. I've only been there about three or four times in my entire life and two of those times, I was a child. I am from Boston. I only know what I have heard. I would have really liked to live in a dorm, because I remember that when I was at MIT, students really helped each other through tough classes as long as they lived in the same dorm. But maybe law students are different and maybe the competition will be fierce, which is unfortunate because you learn a lot more working together. I'm just not thrilled about sharing a small two bedroom apartment. I've heard that there are apartment buildings within a few blocks of the law school and that it is no more expensive than living in the dorm. You can probably get a studio for about $2100 a month in a reasonably nice apartment building. A friend of mine found a great apartment that was two bedroom two bath for $4000. But you really need a friend in order to do that. You need to trust that they will pay their share of the rent and that you won't have any personality conflicts. Anyway, I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. I really don't know New York city and so I can't give you any pointers on where to look. After I graduate, I will take a trip down to NYU and check out the area.

http://newyork.craigslist.org/ is a good source, just be aware of scams... I found a very good apt with this website... and try no broker apts to avoid having to pay high brokers fees.... I think any of those areas are not far from NYU: east and west village, murray hill, chelsea (less good), union square... the best thing is to get a map of NYU, check where NYU is and the closest subway stops so you find a place that has an easy access to the school...

good luck!

i currently live in one of the 2 big dorms for law students at NYU (mercer, the other is D'Agostino (sp?)). i'm not disappointed with it at all. you are right in the heart of the village and pretty close to the subway and school. it also has the perk of avoiding the time spent on finding an apartment. thus, i would say that dorm housing for your NYU LLM is just fine.
