How to find jobs like director assistants in New York?

Well I'll be graduating from high school and before going to college in London I hope I can get some experience in the film industry of New York. LA is better, I know, but I cant drive yet so NYC will be a better (but more pricey alternative). I've got like three months of experience in Hong Kong as a PA, and I try goggling stuff like New york PA jobs but nothing really ticks. DO you guys have some useful websites or is networking really the only way to get film jobs in NY? Thanks :)

Websites like StaffMeUp and even Craigslist are good. Try and find some Facebook pages that are dedicated to casting/crew calls for NYC.

First off, if you're asking NYC filmmakers for help, don't say "LA is better..." Most of us disagree with you.

Secondly, the websites mentioned above are great. Here's my breakdown.

For experience - craigslist
if you already have some experience - Mandy.com
If you have some experience and know what you're doing - StaffMeUp.com

Facebook groups are great too. There's a litany of them if you just search.
The "I need a ____" ones are especially popular. Just fill in blank with what you want to do.
