    I will say that, per a friend's wife, the city hospitals have a hiring freeze right now, so you might want to check into whether or not your wife will be able to get a job prior to making any plans...

    I live on the Upper West Side. Not a bad idea to visit - as stated before, an awful idea to drive. Beyond the traffic issue, you'll NEVER find parking.

    Finding temporary housing with a large dog isn't going to be easy. Even signing a lease with a large dog (particularly a breed that is often assumed to be aggressive, whether that's fair or not) is...

    The commute to midtown isn't going to be bad regardless of the borough you're in. I work in that area (Garment District - just south of the Theater District) and live on the Upper West Side of...

    I'd look on Craigslist for a temporary sublet - that's how I found the first apartment/roommates that I lived in/with, and it worked out very well.

    Where on the UWS is your hotel? I live in the neighborhood - there are garages all over the place. I'm assuming you're driving in for your vacation, not renting a car. If you can give me a general...

    There are good deals to be had all over Manhattan right now, but it's hard to say where the market will be 14 months from now. I wouldn't cap your search so far south - there are deals to be found,...

    $37K is going to be really, really tight with $1500/month in rent, even temporarily - I make nearly twice that, and after taxes, benefits, etc. come out of my gross pay, I barely clear $1500 in a pay...

    NY agencies are hesitant to hire people not already living in the area - you more or less have to sign in blood, swearing that you can move quickly and aren't going to say "oops, couldn't find...

    The ad industry in this city has been going through layoffs at all of the majors (and most of the minors) since January of this year. Until accounts start to move, it's a safe bet that everyone is...

    The owners are also apparently facing foreclosure, which could turn things into a mess. You can get a better deal for the money, in my opinion.

    I make a bit above $60K/year with minimal bills, and I cannot imagine having to pay $1500 a month just for rent, to say nothing of utilities, cell phone, internet, etc. Part of this is because I am...

    $1200 won't get you much in Manhattan as far as living alone goes. I pay $1950 for a railroad-style one bedroom apartment on the UWS (4th floor walk-up in a building built in 1901), and I got a...

    3 dogs? What size? That's definitely not going to make your search easy... we had to get special permission from the landlord to allow one dog in a one bedroom apartment.

    Newark isn't a flat fare. Only JFK. That said, with the Air Train from Newark to Penn, and the AirTrain + LIRR from JFK to Penn, I avoid flying into or out of La Guardia like the plague.
