Nonesense....you just gotta have "game". I was domicled at LGA....ratio of women to men is 5-1 in NYC. Kew Gardens is full of female FA's. When you see a good looking chick in NY walking down the street with a punk, and you say to yourself..."why is she goin' out with him"???....well that "him" is me.
As far as finding living arrangements, there are several placement agencies for flight crews that can set you up with roommates. I got lucky and had 2 hot chicks.
The only people who complain about NYC are those that have NO GAME!!!
There are several good crash pads near Austin's Ale House. I dont how to put you in contact with the people than run them but if you beat the street you can easily find the info. Go down to Yer Mans ( or whatever the current incarnation is) and you can find some hot F/As and info on crashpads. Just dont go into Jamica for your pad....you will regret it.
