How to Find a New Apartment

1. Craigslist
2. Twitter
3. Facebook
4. Ads in the back of alternative weeklies
5. Mass emails to all of your friends
6. Listservs
7. Bulletin boards in coffee shops
8. Self-serving blog posts (Do you know anyone looking for a roommate in Brooklyn? I’d love to interview them for a piece I’m working on — the piece is called “Help I need a new place to live.” Sources will be kept confidential, as ever. )
