Furnished Apartments in New York
Yorkers may live outside of the city and only use
their apartments when they're in town. Many rental
agencies now have specialties in "corporate"
apartments. These are high end apartments for the
business person who needs a place to call home during
an extended business stay in the city.
Short term or long term, furnished apartments are
a good solution if you are in the city for only
a limited amount of time and need a place to call
home while you work or study.
benefit is that you can avoid the cost of furnishing
a place that you don't intend to make into a more
or less permanent home. The downside is that furnished
apartments do cost more than unfurnished apartments
in the same area.

the "Y"... these places are generally
more expensive than shares, but less expensive than
renting or subletting a furnished apartment. They
provide a more private space than a roommate or
bed and breakfast situation and can be a good alternative
for low budget accommodations in the city. Make
sure that cooking is allowed if you don't plan on
eating all of meals in restaurants. Eating out in
