Not to sound like a dick, but this is /r/NYC, which is not Long Island. Our rental policies and what landlords tend to do here will be quite different than what goes on in Long Island. On top of that, Long Island's towns/villages will have different rules from one place to the next.

The only advice I can give is that your boyfriend is an adult, he needs to start acting like one and figure out his credit score. Something like Credit Karma will let him check for free, I believe he is entitled to one free credit score report a year. NO excuse not to know it if he's looking for a place to rent. You shouldn't be babying him and trying to figure all of this out on your own.

I can only speak for Sinai and NYU but they still have mask requirements for patient areas. I'm actually not sure if any hospital in NYC has relaxed their masking requirements in clinical areas. I just learned about Maimonides relaxing it in this article, but haven't it about any plans to relax it elsewhere

You don't speak for all legal immigrants, bud. My family and I are legal immigrants (now citizens) that came back in the 80s. I remember the complete chaos and poverty from the country we left. Fortunately my father had a high demand Job the US was looking for at the time so we were able to get sponsorship, and jsut like you, it took years to come into fruition.

But i'm human enough to understand if my family is dealing with a shit environment, food insecurity, gangs running around, corrupt government that has no problem if you disappear, I would do anything to get my loved ones out of there. So no, not all legal immigrants look at undocumented individuals with disdain.
