View Full Version : Moving to NY, should I buy a place?

I'm moving to NY city from Washington D.C and am thinking about buying an apartment instead of renting. I've got about 30K for down payment so I can afford around 175k-225k for an apartment. Where would be a good place to buy? - I would like to be walking distance from a subway station and be able to commute to Manhattan in less than 35min. Would it be a good idea for me to buy instead of renting?

after some research, I think my best bet is to rent if I want a decent place.
