Suggestions for Classifieds?
« on: February 08, 2013, 08:19:40 PM »
Hey, folks. I'm having little luck finding weekly room rentals in the NYC area using Craigslist. I got a couple of leads from my own ad, but most of the ones I've answered for rooms at $250 or less turn out to be scams or have additional requirements that weren't posted, it seems. Since you're all so smart, anybody know of a good classified service I can try this weekend? Craigslist has always been good for most things, so I never really bothered finding an alternative. I'd rather go on your suggestions for ones you've used than try everything I see when I search for craigslist-like sites.

Thank you kindly.

Have you asked this of any ASO you're dealing with? Many have housing programs or leads on people who are looking for roommates.

You noted you've gotten leads from your own ad -- are none good enough?

Do you realize you can renew your ad weekly?

And, have you check this out? http://www.spareroom.com/newyork

The only ASO I've dealt with is (I guess GMHC). I've asked two people, The Partnership for the Homeless, the Coalition for the Homeless. They can't help or they would. THe GMHC folks are especially nice, but without HASA, there's not much anyone can do, and I make too much (my UI benefits alone) to be eligible for any sort of social assistance.

You noted you've gotten leads from your own ad -- are none good enough?

There's no such thing as not good enough in these situations, love. I'm seeing one tomorrow. The others have been gone before I could make contact. A couple wanted a lot more money up front.

Do you realize you can renew your ad weekly?

Yes, I've had several up in various sections at various times over the lasst month. I need to put up a few today, I believe there's only one up at the moment.

And, have you check this out? http://www.spareroom.com/newyork

Never heard of it, but I'll be looking within the hour. Thanks!

I sense you're skeptical. It's not as easy as it sounds, my dear. ;) I'm trying to pay below market rates with no deposit. Hell, I wouldn't rent to me. ;)

Try

or

http://newyork.ebayclassifieds.com/apartments-for-rent/?catId=100037

Why, thanks. ;) That eBay one almost stopped my heart with the prices, but let me filter it a little. I haven't used the other.

There's a bulletin board in the Gay Center which list apartments or rooms for rent.  You may be able to find a room there or pin up an ad.  They are located at 208 West 13th street in Manhattan.  The closest trains there are the  1, 2 and 3 trains at 14th street.

check out the website that helps with finding rooms.

http://www.gaycenter.org/health/hivaids/services

Our Programs and Services:

- Our Newly Diagnosed HIV Positive Group helps people who have just learned that they are living with HIV, to find strength and support through community connection; participants learn that they are not alone and can continue to live and thrive with HIV.

- The Center provides more than 1,800 counseling and group sessions to LGBT people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS; in addition the Center provides case management for LGBT HIV-Positive recovery clients and part-time vocational counselors to assist recovery clients who are HIV positive with "return to work" and "appropriate training/school options."

- More than 1,000 LGBT youth and young adults attend HIV prevention and support activities and leadership training; thousands more attend educational forums and conferences. The Center is an active participant in advocacy efforts across the city to fight for more HIV funding, support and education, as well as participating in the NYC AIDS Advocacy Network which unites and mobilizes service providers, advocates, and consumers who work with people living and affected by HIV/AIDS and other health conditions across the city of New York to engage our city elected officials and health departments and to advocate for culturally competent initiatives, fair funding and adequate policies. The Center also rents rooms at a subsidized rate to several HIV support groups.
