Looking for a roommate online in the Tri-state area (NY, CT, NJ), but want to get a chance to get to know them a little better before you move in? Get to know each other first before making the leap. Please specify if you are looking for a room, or if you already have a room. How much you are willing to pay for rent, what your ideal living situation would be like. If you have pictures of your apartment or room please place them under a cut.
1. Please do not posts ads that are not legitimate/legal roommate situations i.e if you wish to trade payment of a room for sex. Posts like that will be deleted.
Please always use caution when entering into any roommate agreement or meeting people offline. nycroommates takes no responsibility for any potetial problems that may arise from finding a roommate(s) in this fashion. So use good sense and caution.

This is also a great place to discuss where and how you found your last roommate, the good/bad/ugly stories about roommates, learning how to deal with a roommate, and anything roommate(s) related is welcomed.
