Where to Live (NYC)

Unless you attend(ed) a school in the city or are from the area, you most likely don’t really know what your best options are for living in New York City. Whether it’s for an internship or a full-time position, below are some of your options that are historically known to fit people’s needs and wants.


Summer Internship Housing


Full-Time Locations

  • Lower East Side (East Village)
    • One of the most, if not the most, popular places to live for young analysts
  • Murray Hill Area
    • Another one of the more popular places to live for analysts whose offices are located farther north (around Midtown)
  • Brooklyn
    • Though not as popular as the others, Brooklyn is becoming an increasingly popular place for analysts due to its similar commute time, but more reasonable prices


When conducting your search for full-time housing, Craig’s List can be a good resource for apartment listings. You can also use a broker, which might sound negative to you if you have heard of broker fees. However, these fees are not necessarily a bad thing as brokers will sometimes have access to better apartments at a lower rent than non-fee apartments. If the fee pays itself in less than two years, then it’s worth it, so keep that in mind.
