Apts for rent in NYC

I found an apt for rent in NYC on VRBO - have corresponded by e-mail with the poster but just preliminary - no $ has been sent. Poster provided the exact address of the property when I asked and the property has some good reviews posted by previous clients. Looks like this poster also advertises on bestnycvactionapts.com. I have looked over previous threads on TA on apts for rent in NYC and am now very skeptical of going any further. Is there a way to find out if the post if legit or should I just bag the vrbo idea altogether?

I think we need some clarification about what you're trying to do. Are you looking for a place to stay WHILE you look for an apartment for your son? Or are you looking for a place for your son to live?

I'm sorry for the confusion - answer is yes to both questions. Initially, I thought it would be easier while helping our son look for a place to live to actually be staying close by to Columbia - thus my reasoning for looking for an apartment on vrbo to stay in for those few days while we are in NYC with him. I was never using vrbo to look for an apt for our son.

It'd be best if you just forgot all about vrbo, just take them out of the equation all together.

Contact a Realtor prior to going to look at any apartments. Then you can get a reserve a hotel room for the time when you will be looking at apartments with the realtor.

Does Columbia have a 'suggested housing' list for grad students?
