Young urban professionals are constantly drawn to New York City like moths to a light bulb. The bright atmosphere and melting pot of culture makes NYC one of the premiere cities of the world. However, finding a great home can be quite difficult, especially on the budget of a young urban professional. Here’s our list of the five best places in NYC for urban professionals who want to make their way up.

 

Lower East Side

Long past it’s reputation as an immigrant hib, this hot spot for young artists and professionals mostly consists of walk-ups and studio apartments, at mid-range rent prices. The size of the apartments don’t matter to many residents, however, because there’s always fun and engaging area activities – like trendy restaurants, bars, and shops. Combined with a 20 minute commute to midtown, this area is ideal for young professionals.

 

Murray Hill

This area is within walking distance of Midtown and Grand Central Station and consists of a blend of walk-ups and high rise residential buildings – and mid range rent prices. There’s limitless possibilities for bars, food, shopping, and live entertainment. Between local Irish pubs and the best Indian restaurants in the city, young professionals can find both their leisure and business heaven in this area.

 

Upper East Side

This neighborhood with a fancy reputation actually contains many pockets of mid range affordable housing, with a blend of young professionals and wealthy families. This area boasts a 10 minute commute to Midtown, and close proximity to the legendary Central Park as well as world famous museums, and the ultimate in shopping and dining. This area appeals to those who want a quieter atmosphere, close to all the large cultural happenings of the city.

 

Williamsburg

This area has really hit it off in recent years, with a super easy commute to Manhattan via the L train. This area has increased its average rent of late, however the price is worth it due to the sheer amount of fantastic shops, restaurants, and dive bars. Whether you’re a family looking to settle down, or a young professional looking for a just-slightly-out-of-the-way area to have fun after work, Williamsburg is a great bet.

 

Astoria

Located in Queens, this quiet and neighborhoody area provides citizens a quick commute to Manhattan via the N and W train, as well as the extra space that’s provided when you don’t live in Manhattan. It’s also the main Greek hub of New York City – so you’re sure to have your fair share of gyros in close range at all times. This neighborhood provides a sense of community many people are unlikely to find in bustling areas of Manhattan.
