When we first started our summer in New York, we had no idea where to
live and ended up in a match-box sized apartment on the Upper West Side.
Subtracted from the hustle and bustle of the heart of the city, two
weeks in and we had had enough. Scrolling through facebook we came
across J1Accom.com. Paul quickly suggested that we meet and have a look
at the downtown Brooklyn locations he had to offer. From the second we
met Paul and took a tour of the University buildings we were sold and
moved in the very next week!
The opportunity to make new friends also on the J1 program, an endless
selection of food places and shops in Fulton Mall and (most
importantly!) less than 15 minutes to all the best nightclubs that NYC
has to offer was at our footsteps. It was incredible having 24/7
security ensuring the location of the housing was safe and secure and
also having friendly faces to come home to every day. New York can be
intense and overwhelming so living with 100 Irish people who want to
explore the city and are in the same age group was a dream come true.
The building is within walking distance of Central subway lines
(2/3/4/5/A/C/B/D/N/Q and R) so wherever you need to be at whatever time,
you can get there pretty quickly! We never looked back from moving in,
every night there was something fun to do. For nightlife heading out
with Irish promoter Patrick Greene, a friend of J1Accom can have you on
the best rooftop venues enjoying the NYC skyline and making memories to
last a lifetime. We could not recommend J1Accom more, it is a
stress-free, affordable, safe and exciting home base to get the most of
your J1 in the Big Apple!
