Hi all -
I just accepted a new position in New York and will be looking for apartments shortly. Ideally I'd like to find a large 2BR or Loft in Manhattan. While I know that rents have come down and a few places are available, I can't seem to really find anything on the web.

Rather than a run-of-the-mill place we're looking for a space that has character and is architecturally interesting. Any suggestions for realtors that you worked with and had a great experience in finding just what you wanted?

Any help is much appreciated.


Keep in mind you will be paying for amenities in NYC. Doormen, health clubs, nice looking entranceway with fountain. Brooklyn is not bad, Park Slope...Cobble Hill is closer to NYC, or Bklyn Heights. These are expensive though. Although generic looking, you might want to look at the East Side in the twenties. Maybe more for your money there. I have a friend there who is paying 1100 for his studio...In NYC terms that is cheap.

Check the NY Times Sunday listings.

Just some ideas.
