How can I live near the park?

Asked by Derek Zoolander, Thousand Oaks, CA Wed May 2, 2007

To me, the best part of New York City is Central Park. Obviously, it is expensive to live near there. However, is there any particular side of the park, or area near it that would be the best deal?

When looking for a residence to purchase in NYC, you should contact a local Realtor that can help you find something within your means. You may want to consider hiring the Realtor so he/she can work in your best interest.

Get a refridgerator box, then find a bridge in the park. It's the absolutely cheapest way, but might require frequent moves.

Suprisingly there are many affordable (for Manhattan) apartments available near Central Park.. . The best idea is to contact a local buyer-broker/ agent who can scour available listings and advise you about prices, and areas that fit your lifestyle at no added cost and no cost to you! (Unless agreed to differently or for most rentals)

Northern part of Central park would be the cheapest, but it is also the least safe. So, if you're willing to trade your safety for lower prices, that's a way to go. Otherwise, I would suggest West side over East Side. West Side prices are lower ( but still outrageous)

Woah, loaded question there young man! Well, the Northern border of the park may be wher eyou could find the best deals. However, anything near central Park is pretty much golden. The best way to live new the park is to marry someone who already lives there! HA!
