Accommodation Options in New York for 3 months from Oct 2012Hi, just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for accommodation options in New York as I will be travelling there mid October 2012 gaining professional experience with an architecture firm in Brooklyn as part of a scholarship I have just been awarded. I am 29yrs old and have been working full-time in Sydney for the past 4 years since graduating from Newcastle University, Australia. I enjoy travel and meeting new people so would be open to a number of housing options including house/pet sitting, home stay, share house etc. Being on a scholarship budget too, it would be fantastic to save on accommodations costs as much as possible!
I look forward to hearing from you if you have any suggestions or know of anyone that could potentially help out!
Feel free to send me a private message.

1Hello Dear Traveler,
It's tough finding affordable accommodations in NYC, but not impossible. If you don't find a free stay, you may want to check out these sites. Be careful about any referrals to Craigslist New York as there are a host of unsavory characters willing to take your hard earned cash and some other things from you.
Good luck and happy travels.

I just found a tenant this way for my NYC apartment - it was recommended by a friend who rents hers out for the 6 months each year she doesn't live in NYC. It's more structured than Craigslist, and I know, as a 'landlord', that sublet.com does a little checking to make sure it's legitimate.
If you can, somehow, find someone in NYC to check out the apartment for you - even a casual facebook buddy. There are too many scams out there ....
