Where to live for Yeshiva/Albert Einstein College of Medicine?
June 3, 2014 11:47 AM Subscribe
My cousin's boyfriend has accepted a postdoc at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx. He'll be moving here in August. He is a research scientist and will be keeping very odd hours and making frequent trips to campus to access the lab. Where should he live? Details under the fold.

He is pursuing the possibility of some sort of housing assistance through the college, but it is unclear if this is even available for postdocs. He has asked me for advice, but the Bronx is out of my area of expertise. He is a liberal, white southern guy who has never lived out of the south. He's prepared for culture shock. Chief concerns are safety & affordability, but it would be great if there were some amenities & restaurants in the area. I used to live in Washington Heights, and I am familiar with Inwood and Riverdale, but I am unsure if these areas will be close enough via public transportation given the frequency he will need to be on campus. I am looking for advice on 1) neighborhoods that might be a good fit for him or ones to avoid, 2) any Yeshiva/Albert Einstein listserves, googlegroups, etc. that might have listings for room shares, 3) any info that might be helpful for a secular postdoc at Albert Einstein College. Thank you!
