:Well I am a broker and my knowledge of rent-direct and places like that is that the lists are next to useless: by the time you get the info, it's already outdated, meaning the apts are already taken, and most of the info on their lists appears in the new york times real estate section and the village voice-for free. While $169 sounds like a good deal for all the info you're supposedly going to receive from them, in my humble opinion it's money down the drain.
For your first move into the city, you may want to try a roommate matching service, like New York Habitat (http://www.nyhabitat.com)
They charge a fee of 1 months rent when you actually get the apt. You'll live in someone elses apt, you'll have a "lease", you'll pay less that you would if it was your own apt and it will give you the time and a place to live here while you work on finding a place of your own. Just an idea.
