I am a PhD student of Economics at NYU. I do research is in the Patent Race Games. After one year of spending half of my stipend on the student housing in East Village, and another year of supporting a greedy land lady, I decided to never rent an apartment any more. I spent three month living in the parks, beaches and rooftops while taking courses, teaching, and doing my research. Then I invested the money I saved into a sailboat, and I have had a beautiful and almost free place to live ever since.

I don't think I am qualified to advice on how to get admitted. However, I can explain you how to set up your own romantic floating home for a fraction of what you would pay for a shared room in NYC.
