Hi all :)

I have been offered a job in New York (currently in the UK), on $65 per year. I am searching about apartments and whats the best options. I am taking my dog with me, so ideally don't want to share as this will make it harder.

I lived in Australia for 7 years and shared over there and although I know sharing has its positives, I really don't want to do it anymore.

Looking at apartments and the need for 3 x rent upfront, not to mention no US credit history its worrying to say the least. I have thought about booking an AirBnB for a couple of months as at least you have all furniture etc set up.

Has anyone recently been through similar? And any advice as to where/how you can live on your own in NYC when starting out?

You may want to ask your employer-to-be about some sort of housing assistance. They may be able to vouch for you in some manner, or at least they may be able to tell you where your colleagues-to-be live (or where they found housing in their early days in NYC).
Cheers,
Bev
