Finding a house in the US has become real easy

I just got to know about this great rental site called Rentals.com. Their listings include a variety of rentals including apartments, condos, townhomes, vacation rentals, and more. Said to be the most popular rental listing Web site, you can find a house in every American state. The site has loads of houses for rent, the choice is amazing.

I decided to give it a test run to check out houses available for rent in New York, more specifically for apartments. The search was quite easy and I quickly narrowed to the search down to apartments. There's an amazing number of choices but one that caught my eye was the luxury apartments in Kamson Community : Forest Hill Terrace. Not really sure about the area but the green vegetation outside the apartments really attracted me. I would have appreciated some pictures of the interior as well though.

If you are looking for a place to rent in the States, I definitely recommend this site.

While the grounds and the apartment look very nice, it's located in Newark, NJ, which is the largest city in New Jersey, and also one of the poorest cities in the country. 28% of the population lives under the poverty line, and it's the 22 most dangerous city in the US.

This apartment in particular is on the very norther edge of Newark, which explains all the greenness. I don't know if I would consider living in that complex, but I know I wouldn't live almost anywhere else in Newark, and that's coming from personal experiences and being a lifelong New Jerseyan.

This is not to say that Newark is a horrible horrible place. It has seen great improvements over the past two decades, with the construction of the state's performing arts center (NJPAC) located in the city, and the current construction of a new stadium that will house the NJ Devils hockey team, and the basketball team for one of the local private universities. Unfortunately, all of this development is going on in a small area of the city, and it is still not clear how much it will trickle down to the people that live in the city.

I guess this goes to show that looks can be deceiving when it comes to finding a place in the internet. I should know - I'm hunting for an apartment right now, and it can be so very frustrating! Thank god for Google Maps and City-data.com!
