You will move to a new city for work and know some people that reside there. In your letter,
- Ask them about getting a place to stay
- Tell them a location preference
- Mention the type of place you have in mind
I want to inform you that I am moving to New York and would like to make certain inquiries about a few things before arriving there.
Can you please assist me in finding somewhere to reside? Preferably, I would like to get a place that is not far from where I’ll be working, or in the downtown district. An area within some shops like a supermarket and DVD rental place would be ideal. I enjoy hitting the gym as well, so having one nearby would be great.
I am not particularly concerned about the place itself since I just need a simple apartment (not a house). A place that isn’t too pricey and rent-friendly. It should have, say, one bedroom, a private bathroom, a kitchen, and perhaps a living room. I would really like somewhere new, so anywhere of modern apartment qualities would be nice.
Thanks for your help!
