As licensed real estate salespeople in NYS we are not allowed to discuss anything pertaining to race, religion, or sexual orientation.
It is a violation for us to do so.
If you are still looking for a place in NYC there are some resources i can suggest you take a look at in regards to your specific rental search criteria which may help you find an area/s that appeal to you the most.
It would be my pleasure to provide my services to you and anyone you know who may be looking to rent, buy, or sell. I also work in commercial leasing and retail.
