Hoboken & Jersey City are mere minutes from different points in Manhattan, half the price, and already up and came!  Hot new neighborhoods in New York City?  Why struggle?  Living in New York is hard enough!  Click Here to find amazing homes with roof decks and yards and pools and New York City views!

- Sunset Park West in Brooklyn?  32 minutes (on the R-arely) train to the tip of Manhattan.

- The Rockaways in Queens?  This hipster haven has been "so popular" for so many years, that anyone who wanted to live there, already does.  And that's a 55 minute express A train to the tip of Manhattan.

- Flatbush, Brooklyn?  No, not Flatbush the Avenue... Flatbush the neighborhood.  Yeah, I don't know where that is either.  Apparently it is 38 minutes on the 2 express to the World Trade Center.

- East Harlem?  Okay.  $690,000 for a 1 bedroom walkup in Manhattan?  In Hoboken right now you'll get a 2 bedroom at The Sky Club, a doorman building with a pool and fitness center.  In Jersey City right now, $690,000 can get you a 1 bedroom on the 41st Floor of 88 Morgan.  This is an even better gym, pool, spa, and concierges who will take your dropped off groceries directly to your apartment.
