If you applied and interviewed, I would recommend considering Lincoln in the Bronx. I live on Wall St. and the subway ride is 24 minutes straight without transfers. For a Preliminary year, it is actually pretty easy. Yes it is a busy hospital, but there are enough residents to spread the work around. Typical day is 7:30-4:30. Unlike some places (ahem, Downstate), Lincoln is pretty good with telling the truth at interviews and following work hour regulations.
Oh and they offer housing at $500 a month in Manhattan's upper east side.
