And while that may indeed be the case, the reality of the cost of renting an apartment in New York may quickly place itself squarely in the path of the dream.

This issue of price is not necessarily a deal-breaker, however, as there are compromises that an individual or couple can make to achieve the goal of NYC habitation.

There are roommate finding services, turning two bedrooms into a three bedrooms by walling off the living room, living in a less desirable neighborhood, borough or perhaps maybe even living with grandma in her rent-controlled apartment.

Then there is always the possibility of working a second job at night for a little extra cash or, if you are really lucky, being subsidized by your parents.

As they say where there’s a will there’s a way but, if New York City is going to be in the cards, what can someone reasonably expect to get for their money.

For various amounts of money per month the quality of the apartment that’s available will differ by borough but to make things a little bit easier a website by the name Curbed New York provides an analysis that is extremely helpful!
