  • Housing in NYC

    I've started to become interested in the NYPD but housing is so ridiculous in the city. Is there some website or group I can contact to help me find a place that won't take more than half of my starting salary?

    newyork.craigslist.org. You'll need to do some digging, but you should be able to find something eventually. The bottom line is that living in the five boros is very expensive. You might do better to look for something on Long Island, or even Westchester/Yonkers. The commute may be longer, but you'll save on rent since public transit will be free for you.

If you don't realize that, if you really think you're sitting here because of your genius or anything, I don't know, maybe your background is different, but I got my butt kicked a lot at every level, including this one."

      Do city employees get free transit or something?

        The Police Officers do ride the Long Island Railroad, MetroNorth Railroad, and NYC Subway for free, the bus also.

            I too was once looking at moving up to NYC but actually got some advice in this same forum to look out on the west coast, I see you are from South Dakota so you might wanna look that way as well, Vegas, AZ, California St, almost start out making twice as much and cost of living about 10x lesser. Just a thought. Good luck either way!

              consider his advise too. There are lot more agencies that will take better care of you and pay you at market cost.
