Searching for an apartment on the Upper West side?

If you are searching for an apartment on the Upper west side of Manhattan, perhaps you will find the NYT The Hunt article interesting. A couple of flight attendants had a tiny 350 sqft apartment in a walk-up on the upper east side and then decided to trade up.

Along the way, they were turned down by a Board on the Upper East side, then changed brokers and went searching on the Upper West side with a max budget of $700k.

Will they be able to find an apartment? Will they get turned down again by a Co-op board? Read the full article to learn the answers.
