    Thanks for the shout-out. I am super excited to be moving to the Heights. It was the only part of NYC that I look in because it is just that cool:-)

    Berlin is still crying. Because Erin moved from Berlin to NYC!

    You all have to take care after Erin!

    Where exactly did you find a place, and how expensive is the rent?

    I was using Craigs List and a number of brokers. In a market as unpredictable as New York, I think you’ve got to explore multiple avenues simultaneously and see what pops first. Some of the brokers were terrible, but others were great, like Brian Lehner at Brown Harris Stevens. I highly recommend him! From my experience, studios range from a bit under $1000 to about $1800. 1 bedrooms run from $1400 (if you are really lucky) to $2500. 2 bedrooms start at around $2000.
