Finding An Apartment In NYC

The rental market in NYC is crazy right now. It's definitely slowed down a bit but things still seem to be flying off the shelves. My lease is ending on May 8th and my roommate is moving in with her fiancé so I have to find a place . Even more stressful: I will be out of town the next two weekends so I can only search 3 weeks before it ends. Most things are going pretty quickly so this is do able but isn't helping my anxiety level.

Send any tips, tricks, and good vibes my way!
