Where/how to find sublets?

apartment door peepholeBrad emails:

I'm interning in Albany this summer and was wondering if you had any tips on to where to look for 1br sublets. I've been browsing craigslist for a few weeks now but really don't know of any other options.
I would like an area thats safe but I'm not too worried about how quite it is. It would be nice to be near bars and places to eat. I'm interning with the Devils hockey team (June through August) so you have an idea as to where I'll be everyday.
I've browsed craigslist but with not much luck. Do you know of any other sites to use to look for sublets?

The local Craigslist is kind of thin on sublets. And, you know, these days -- if not Craigslist, then where?

Got a suggestion for Brad? Please share!

He should post on Craigslist himself. There is a large number of students (college, med school, law school, pharmacy school) who leave for the summer even though they are tied down in 1 year leases. I'm sure many of them would be happy to sublease their places in order to cut out expense of keeping the apartment empty for the summer.

Agree with the above poster, tons of law students have leases through the summer in Albany but are moving back home or to NYC for the summer and they would love to sublet. Post on craigslist, call Albany Law/Albany Med/Albany Pharm and ask them if they have any lists or anything like that. Should be a lot of NICE apartments open.

I am very glad they are moving the bus stop back from the Armory to the Library. The number of near misses from folks turning onto Washington Ave is frightening. I am also happy to hear a mid-block crossing is being installed. There are waaaaay to many people walking down the middle of a 4 lane road not paying attention, hopefully this will give them a safer, faster, path to the other side.
