Finding an NYC apt in two days

I never thought I'd be saying this, but apartment hunting in NYC isn't all that bad.

Our first apartment required an 'agent' as we were brand new to the city and needed for find a place fast. After crashing on our friend's couch for a few weeks, we landed a home in Midtown NYC. The space was a small 1BR, wall-up building, with no amenities. This was also 2.5 years ago.

Our current apartment in Harlem, is basically just as small, in another walk-up building, with no amenities. This building has been a thorn in our sides since we've moved in, so we're thrilled to pack our shit up and run for the hills! Well...not the hills, but just somewhere else.

In my latest video, I go on an 'apartment hunt' with my fiancĂ©, over the course of two full days. At the end of those days, we chose an apartment, began the application process, and we're moving within the next week or so. 

I hope you enjoy the video and if you live in New York City, what apartment hunting tips have you found helpful?
