Roommate-finding services

Resources that can hook you up with the perfect stranger

By Lucy Cohen Blatter


Short-term offers with quick turnovers abound at, which is owned by (a domain run by online services company Nestpick, Inc.). But you can find a few longer stay options here, too. (Sublets usually last between one and nine months, but there are some longer-stay options as well.) Search the database according to your criteria, then contact other members directly. Three months' access varies by borough (from $25 for the Bronx to $39.95 for Manhattan), and on a recent browse through the site, we found around 200 postings for pads in Manhattan, 100 for Brooklyn and 40 for the Bronx, all with plenty of photos.
