[NYC-L] Fwd: In need of an apartment???

University housing is NEVER cheap. Even their off-campus alternatives are
not cheap (unless you can afford to pay 800+ to share). On the other hand,
International House at Columbia sucks! You pay 500 or 600 for a hole,
literally a hole without even a private bathroom or kitchen-just enough
space for a bed. Those rooms are uninhabitable and without Air conditioning
(from what I've seen), and you can hardly even study there.  I would merely
suggest Valon to find housing in the Bronx, specifically in the Riverdale
Area, where he can find something both affordable and spacious and
comfortable. If Valon is interested, I can look up some phone numbers of
Albanians who are in the real estate business in the Bronx.

Tung Valon,

I would suggest contacting Columbia housing as that's one of the best
options around here. The application deadline is probably long due but it's
still worth trying. They usually give housing priority to international
students so emphasise that in your correspondence with them ( i.e. if you
are an international student). You can find their info on the Columbia


Another option is the International House located on 123rd st and Riverside
Drive. The rent is reasonable and it's not too far from the campus. Friends
of mine who live there seem to like it. Hope this information helps! 


Good luck with you search!

Hi there,
I will be starting my graduate degree at Columbia University this
fall and
was wondering if any of you would have suggestions about finding a
cheap flat in NYC. I know there aren't any nice cheap places in NYC
but if
you know someone who rents places or needs a roomate I would really 
appreciate it. And if you are in NY I will buy you coffee.
