After spending nearly a week here, not really feeling all that well and having fairly down thoughts about job prospects, most of which would most probably be in New York, I have decided that it would be best to find a place in Brooklyn. Even if it did cost a bit more rent wise, it would be made up for in terms of transportation. Where I am now (highland park) I have to get to the train station (by bus - after walking to where the bus stops, that too being fairly significant... and I have no idea how often the bus runs, or how early) and then take the train to New York. From there I take a subway to wherever it will be that I will be finding work. As opposed to, say, just taking a subway from Brooklyn.
I talked to my rabbi in Borough Park and he said he thought it was a good idea. Now I just have to find a room or a roommate, or what not.
