In the wake of StreetEasy’s report, “Where College Grads Can Afford to Rent in NYC,” StreetEasy Data Scientist Alan Lightfeldt appeared on Fox 5 NY news with business reporter Alison Morris to discuss the findings and provide some advice to Fox 5 viewers such as:

  • Don’t spend more than 50 percent of your income on rent
  • Look outside of Manhattan for affordable rents
  • Try areas like Astoria (Queens), Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy (Brooklyn)
  • Want Manhattan? Go north of 110th street
  • When you see a rental you want, move quickly
