Hey everyone, I'm looking for a room to let for the month of May. I'll be working in East London for 4 weeks starting on the 2nd. I've started to look for a flat on the web, but realized I should ask around here as well. Any advice on finding a flat in London, especially when you live in New York and can't actually see the place until you arrive? Also, if you or someone you know might have a room I'd love to hear from you. I'll be working 5 minutes walk from the Bromley-by-Bow station so I'm looking for a relatively easy commute to there. The areas I'm considering right now are : Islington, City of London, Tower Hamlet, Wapping, Clerkenwell, Hackney, and Bethnal Green. Any comments on that? I commute 2 hours each way right now, so as long as the commute is an hour or less I'll be ecstatic. Thanks for your help! Also, if anyone wants to get together at some point I'm game. As of now I don't really know anyone in London until I meet people at work, so my nights and weekends are wide open. Except the last weekend in May, my girlfriend will be coming to visit before I come back to the states. Take it easy.
