Can a non-US citizen or person without a social security number rent an apartment in New York City?
There is a common fallacy that people who don't have social security numbers are invisible to background and credit checks. This is not true. (It once was, but isn't any more!) In addition to this, there are laws that prevent applicants from being discriminated against based on simply being a foreign national.
Of course, this doesn't mean that people who don't have social security numbers don't encounter obstacles. They can, but fortunately resources are available.
