    so im getting engaged and moving to NYC at the end of the school year.(spring time)
    i been looking at craigslist and shit, looking at artist workspaces(warehouse type spots) that are mad cheap. and looking at jobs too.
    since i know theres a rack of NYC heads on this shit i figured this would be a good place to ask.

    1.wheres the cheapest place to live? i dont care about the neighboorhood, im from crack central. i'll live anywhere but yonkers(<--only place in NYC im kinda scared of)

    2when those ads for lofts and shit say "NO LIVE IN" how serious are they, do people really give a shit?

    3 has williamsburg, bedford and the rest of north brooklyn been taken over by yuppies yet? its been a while.

    i'll ask more later

    You can find relatively cheap places in Queens, BX, and Brooklyn... Queens is easily the most boring borough and it's the least popping place, besides S.I., as far as writing goes.

    Yonkers isnt NYC, its not all bad in Yonkers, but some spots are yikes.

    Stay outta East NY and Brownsville.

    Inwood and Riverdale are probably the nicest spots in my opinion, real cheap and big space. Not too bad.

    The LES is for rich kids who rebel against their parents and live a wack coked out homo lifestyle.

    astoria queens isn't bad and it's affordable. close to manhattan and everywhere else.

    actually there are plenty of spots in queens that are affordable, and decent.

    the bronx is relatively unexpensive, but you'd probably want to stick to somewhere in brooklyn cuz it's a lot more accessible to manhattan. i'd recommend the bushwick area. it's not the prettiest, but it's affordable, and it has its own certain charms.

    gliks, whats worng with east NY? i been there and thought it was all right.

    also when i say affordable, keep in mind i aint got a degree or nothing, i'll probally be making 600 a week if im lucky.

    oh yeah, is coney island as grimy as they make it look in that "CITY BY THE SEA" movie. last time i was in BK i wanted to hit that place but it was raining, heard that place is cool.
