Going to New York city for 2 months and was wondering if anyone had any advice for accommodation or living arrangements? I'm going to be doing a course while I'm over there. Should I rent an apartment for the 2 months, stay at a hostel, try university campuses...? I'm on a budget, what's my best option?

Thanks guys...!

Plans have now changed, any reccs for a cheap but central place to stay for 2-3 weeks? I'm not too fussed as long as it's somewhere to sleep and a safe place to stash my stuff while I'm out exploring...

the cheapest would be a hostel but i don't kno of any in manhattan that'd be cheap. you'd probably end up in a shady part of brooklyn or queens.
maybe post on craigs list under housing wanted and say you're lookin for a place to crash for 2 weeks.. maybe you'll get lucky.
