Asked by Cendrella (6points) March 20th, 2011

Hello everyone I am Moroccan and I would like to follow my studies at Brooklyn College. I would like to know how much money I’m going to spend to live in Brooklyn ( the rent, subway, food… and all) I want to have an estimate !
Which neighborhood you advise me? In fact I intend to rent a furnished studio .

My daughter’s boyfriend is moving to Brooklyn from somewhere else in the US, and he is budgeting $30,000 for the first year’s expenses.

Rents are higher in NYC than most American cities. You may want to also look in Queens. Look at university housing first, until you get a feel for where you would want to live. Food in NYC is cheaper than other parts of the country. You can get a subway pass that makes transportation affordable and relatively easy. Lots of walking happens.

Thank’s a lot. Do you have any idea about part time jobs ? Because i think that i’m obliged to work in parallel with studies, apart being waitress i wouldn’t find a gainful job to cover my expenses? I was told that i will find difficulties because i’m Arab !!!
Concerning Queens i prefer brooklyn to be near Brooklyn College and my best friend is coming with me so she will be my room-mate then i will pay just the half. Thank’s again for answering.
