I’m arrived in New York two days ago.
One day before the start of the school year.
I was living in my cousin apartment because I didn’t have my own one.
I was asking everybody if they knew apartment to rent. Nobody could help me. I decided to look on craigslist and “Les Frenchy à NY”. They are the most popular web site to find a room.
I was so motivated and impatient to visit a nice room in a nice area like EST Village, Soho.
When I began my search, I quickly realized how difficult it’s will be. Every room was expensive, small, a furnished and sometimes dirties.
Sometimes you answer to an attractive ad but the person who answers you talk only about money. He requires money but didn’t want to let you visit the room.
This kind of ads is fakes one. Never give money to someone before having a visit. For sure you will lose your money. But if you like the apartment you have to be ready to give money. That will assure to have the apartment for you and the ad will be removing of the web site.
During these two weeks I send Email to twenty adverts, and I still haven’t find a place to live. I become anxious and desperate.
All my family and friends tell me to persevere. I still go on craigslist everyday and I hope I will find my own place in a few days.
