I will move in NYC in the next months as an Intern for 6 months. I will earn 1800$/month (I assume before taxes), work in Jersey City and want to live in Manhattan or Brooklyn with roommates.
I have found some informations about public transportation prices(about 200$/m with Port Authority transfer), and that i can find a room for 1000$/m inside the city.
Is it possible and reasonable to live inside NYC with my salary ? I also have saved an amount of money to spend during this few months (between 3k$ and 4k$).
Moreover, how long does it take to go from Brooklyn to exchange place (Jersey city) ?
I also wish you all a happy new year !
