    i got a surgery rotation on 11/23 - 2/20 i think... whatever the 3 months is. housing in NY is really hard to find for 6 weeks, nevertheless a decent place for a good price. you're going to be overpaying. i'm looking for a place with a 3 or 6 month lease also. if anyone has anything let us know!

    Advice for Wyckoff rotations.

    Hi,
    I'm in the process of completing a rotation here at Wyckoff and i figured i could share a bit of my experience. I've been in Brooklyn going on 4 weeks now.

    If you are trying to find housing near Wyckoff, the hospital has a couple of listings posted on bulletin boards around the floor that students have lockers. You may want to call the medical education coordinator and ask for info. I was lucky enough to find a person on ValueMD who needed someone to sublease their room from the dates i was going to be at Wyckoff. But i understand how overwhelming looking for a place in NY can be.

    The most convenient thing about NY is that you can get around virtually anywhere without a car by taking the subway/bus. Rates are not that bad for a metrocard & the prices beat ridiculous parking rates that are charged near Wyckoff. You can try driving up to NY and using public transportation to get to and from the hospital.

    Have any other questions....i'll try to answer them the best i can! good luck.

    Thank you so much premedjules, I appreciate your info.
    but one more thing, would you happen to know how much a monthly parking runs in NY near Wykoff. I talked to someone in Wykoff by phone and she said they charge $100 a month. is this true? If you were me, would you drive to NY and use your car than taking buses? or it is not worth it? I saw listings in craiglist and found hundreds of places from rent with distance of 1.8 to 12 miles a way from hospital. not sure what am I gonna do for now, kind of worried................

    hey olddoc, there is a parking lot that charges 98/month and another that charges 120/month. both are very close by. If you are living in queens like I do, getting to wyckoff by train will take you about an hour and half because it requires you to go to manhattan and then come back to brooklyn...as opposed to driving for 25 mins or so. Although having a car is a hassle in someways, I chose to do it because we have some rotations in long island and staten island, and driving to those locations is the most convenient. hope this helps..
