I am from Iceland, and I just moved to New York. My friend and I are looking for a place to rent from the beginning of September (2011) until February (2012).
I am doing an internship here in New York until February 2012 at the Icelandic Mission to the United Nation (on 3rd Avenue) and my friend will be doing an internship at a law firm on the 5th Avenue (sept. 2011-sept 2012). We are rather easy going, clean, very reliable and calm people (spending a lot of time at work).
Since we are doing an internship, we are not so wealthy - we are looking for appartment (or two rooms) where each of us is able to pay about 700-850 p. month - all together (phone number hidden) p. month.
