Roommate needed: Astoria, $800/month, starting August 1st

Roommate needed! 1 bedroom is available in my 2-bedroom apartment. We have a VERY sizeable living room, bathroom, and a nice little kitchen with a brand-spankin’-new oven that was just installed a few months ago. It’s quiet, with nice, big windows, hardwood floors, and tremendous natural light.
If you’re interested, please call me at 716.725.3081 or e-mail me at cmm766@nyu.edu so I can get to know you better.
Beginning when? August 2013
How much? $800 per person, per month. This includes Heat and Hot Water, but not electric or cable. I’d say that, including those two, budget about $900 a month.
Where? Astoria, Queens. It’s <1 mile to the N, Q, R, M and (by quick transfer), F, E, and 7 lines. It’s about a 30-45 minute subway ride into the city.
Who am I, and Who am I looking for? As your future roommate, I’m a 2nd-year Draper student (female) in the dual-degree program (I’m also getting my MLS through LIU). Because I have a really heavy work load, I need a roommate who is able to pay rent/utilities on time, is (reasonably) tidy, and is respectfully quiet. You’re welcome to contact me whether you’re male or female. I believe that home should be a safe, restful, healthy environment: if you agree, and if the price is right for you, let’s make this happen!
What’s so cool about Astoria? More like, what isn’t cool about Astoria?
– It’s far enough outside of Manhattan that it’s not super loud or overridden by undergrads. (Admit it: they’re loud). I live right by little Egypt, but there’s a huge Greek community here, too. The neighbourhood is a great cross-section of young professionals, artists, students, and families. It’s a great place to live, and it’s quite safe, too.
– The pizza place down the block is the nicest place in the world. I spend a considerable amount of time there during midterms.
– 30th Avenue, right by my (our?) apartment has a great selection of bars, cafes, bakeries, etc.
– Astoria park isn’t too far away either. We even have a kickball team that plays every other Sunday. Trust me, you don’t have to be good, but the people who come are really a fantastic bunch.
– We’ve got pretty much anything you need: clothing & apparel, grocery stores, ORGANIC grocery stores, shopping, hookah lounges, transport, decent community. Heck, we’ve even got the Museum of the Moving Image. It’s a great place to be.

Apartment for Rent – Bed Stuy/Bushwick

$1500 / 2br – 2 Bedroom Railroad Available July 1 (Bed Stuy/Bushwick)

This 2 bedroom railroad style apartment is situated just a few blocks on the Bed Stuy side of Broadway close to Bushwick. It’s on the South side of Kosciuszko near Stuyvesant, a seven minute walk from the JMZ Myrtle/Broadway stop (20 min to Manhattan), and 15 min walk from the Utica A/C. It’s a quiet, old brick building with heat and hot water included, on the second floor of a four-story, with some furnishings available. There’s some exposed brick in the living room and one bedroom. It’s a pretty good size with hardwood floors, marble tile in the kitchen, and is definitely under market value at $1500 a month. We’re using the 2nd bedroom as an office/storage space now but it’s certainly suitable as a bedroom. The space is, however, probably best suited to a couple rather than roommates.
The landlord requires a $100 credit check/application fee and one or two month security deposit dependent upon credit.
Please email if you’re interested in learning more.
