I'm a single, college-educated, mid-twenties male who will very likely be relocating from the West Coast to the Tri-State area in a few months for a full-time desk job in Rutherford, New Jersey. I'd love to know your recommendations for affordable rooms, apartments, studios, etc. in safe and convenient neighborhoods.
I grew up in and lived in South Brooklyn for many years, so I'm familiar with the NYC area, but I've never lived in NJ nor ever considered living there in the past.] [more inside]

I'm a single young adult with a college degree and student loan debt. I live in a sterile small city with limited job prospects. I want to move out and get an entry-level or temporary job in a coastal U.S. city (NYC, LA, SF, Seattle). Please walk me through the logistics and help me devise a plan, as well as offer any advice you have on making it on your own in a new city (essentially, how to be an independent, self-sufficient adult).

There's a possibility that my partner and I might be looking at working in NYC (partner) and New Haven, CT (me). Where can we live that's convenient to the Metro North train line, gives us roughly even commute times, and might also be a halfway decent place for two early-thirty-somethings to live? [more inside]

I am 22 and one year out of undergrad. I would like to get a paraprofessional library job in NYC. I live in Seattle. Is it stupid to expect that I could set up interviews before moving? Will employers even look at my resume now?

I'm moving from London to NYC in August. Although I am very excited, am also a bit nervous about not knowing anyone there. Any suggestions of group activities or places to go to meet laid-back folk?
