The food, the nightlife and most of all, the eccentric people, are the main reasons why people are choosing to move to New York’s trendiest borough, Brooklyn.
Just because your budget might be in a lower price range, it doesn’t mean you’ll have to live in a tiny apartment. Living with roommates means you’ll get a larger space to accommodate more people, which usually comes with more amenities!
Although rent in Brooklyn is on the rise, there are still relatively affordable apartments available for groups looking to room together. From studios to three-bedroom units, there are plenty of great apartments you can choose from, all under $3,000 a month. If you’re a savvy apartment hunter, you can bring the cost down to less than $1,000 a month. Here are our top five picks:
