My suggestion is to try some of the brand new buildings listed in the NY Times. You may pay a little more rent but most of them have on-site rental offices which means no fee. I'd rather have my money go towards a nicer apartment than to a useless broker. Good Luck.
: : I can't afford too much.
: : Can anyone give me some feedback or places they recommend?
: 1. don't use a broker, find a place with no extra fees directly through the owner
: 2. don't live in manhattan. unless you have lots of time (and $$$), finding an affordable place in manhattan that isn't totally gross will be hard. i recommend brooklyn for lower rents and fewer brokered apartments. when you've established yourself here for a while and are more familiar with the city, then you could find a good place in manhattan. or you might just wanna stay in Brooklyn ...
