For New Yorkers, finding a new residence is akin to cramming for the SATs or applying to college.

StreetEasy, the property website, has illustrated these frustrations for its first ad campaign, created by Goodby, Silverstein & Partners.

The print and OOH ads show comical, but familiar scenes related to apartment living, such as the room just large enough for a bed.

The ads appear where New Yorkers spend much of their time — subway platforms, taxis, and on the street.
