Looking for life experience from any former interns out there- Anyone have to choose whether to live close to the hospital or in a neighborhood that you enjoy? The situation: Starting internship way uptown in NYC 7/1... could live in a giant (safe, impersonal, in a pretty safe but quiet area) apartment complex near the hospital, or stay in my cozy downtown brownstone and face a 30-40 min door-to-door subway commute every morning. I'm looking at 9 months of call during this time, but heading out to categorical elsewhere for the next year. Anyone been through this? Wish you would have been closer or farther away? Thanks from an upcoming intern.
