In keeping with Welcome to New York week here on Brick — has anyone else been hearing Taylor Swift's voice all week? — we’ve rounded up a set of apartments you can share with roommates and rent for $3,000 a month. Bonus: Many are available sans broker fee. Because we get it: You simply can’t afford to live alone yet.
Ready to rent? Check out our How To Rent Guide ...and if the apartment you like requires a guarantor that you don't have, see if the landlord accepts Insurent, a guarantor solution from one of BrickUnderground's sponsors.
