You will move to a new city for work. You know some people who live there.

Write at least 150 words.
I hope you are doing great. I am really excited that my office has been moved to New York, specifically to the Manhattan area in downtown. I need your help in finding accommodation near my office in New York. Since you have been living there for the past thirty years.
I prefer to be as close as possible to my work location. I have been searching apartments in Manhattan, however, they need a local reference, and I cannot apply directly. It would be great if you could suggest me some apartments in that area and refer me. I am very particular with the cleanliness of the apartment and a responsible management.
I have been searching for a studio apartment since I do not have a family accompanying me. Also, I need a spacious one! In terms of area, I do not prefer a studio which is less than 500 sq. ft. Furthermore, I need a balcony for the house. I am flexible on the price.
I hope that you can help me find the right place and cannot wait to meet you.
