Are you looking to become a model in New York City and looking for a place to live? Do you want to know where models live in NYC?
Housing alone is New York City is hard to find for anyone, let alone models. Here are a few tips for male and female models looking for housing in NYC!
Tip 1 – The NYC Model Apartment
Typically, larger modeling agencies house new face models, especially those traveling from overseas, in model apartments.
A model apartment is just a normal apartment, typically two or three bedrooms where models live while attending castings and go-see’s.
While they are not for extended living, a normal apartment can have up to six people, or even more living in a small space.
Models can expect to pay around $1,000 or even more per month for these “model apartments”. While some agencies may front this cost at the beginning of your career, like any other industry, this investment is your responsibility and is not something that is covered for free!
Tip 2 – Look outside of Manhattan for affordable deals
New York City is one of the most expensive places in the world to live. For most models, a typically one bedroom apartment (which is around $3,000 per month in Manhattan) is over their budget. Brooklyn, Queens and even New Jersey have more affordable deals for models and can be a great alternative when looking to relocate to New York.
