That being said - here is my brief, maybe helpful information:
1. Decide if you want to use a broker or not. Brokers help pair you with the right apartment for you and provide access to apartments that are not publicly searchable. However, they charge a fee of 10-15% one years rent which is pretty steep. If you don't want a broker, most websites give you the option to look for "no fee" apartments only.
2. I've heard great things about Long Island City as a neighborhood. Followed by Astoria. Then places like woodside or sunny side.
3. COL is very high. Be prepared for walk ups and laundry down the street. You may need a roommate to keep things affordable.
So by the time I move there, you'll probably be an NYC vet and can give me advice instead.
Good luck on the move! (Again)
All that being said, I love that amy, not kieren, was the first risen. Not that kieren isn't ~special as he fought off the effects of blue oblivion and could be reasoned with in his untreated state. But I like the chosen one subversion here. There was a great interview with Dominic Mitchell where he talked about this not being a show with prophecies, etc. all these people, both on the ULA side and the living, believe that the first risen is the key. But in the end, nothing happens when they seek to fulfill it. All they've done is murder a wonderful girl. That type of fanatical belief is dangerous and leaves the bodies of others in it's wake.
I love the final bit with kieren quietly mourning amy as the signs of his own healing start to creep in - him actually producing tears and the tremor in his hand.
After finally accepting himself as a PDS sufferer, I really want a series 3 where he has to adjust to all of that changing once more
This show is one of the only shows I know of that can match BSG for bleakness.
Dominic Mitchell does such an amazing job of letting us see so many oppressed persons represented in PDS sufferers - but deals pretty heavily with persons who suffer from mental health issues. All of the comments about people being dangerous if they don't take their medicine... people coming back from extended commitments to hospitals, etc.
Such a kick in the teeth.
PS. Kieren x Happiness OTP.
