What kind of documents are generally required from a guarantor when signing an apartment lease?

-copy of recent pay stubs (for confirmation of employment)
-copy of recent federal tax return
-copy of photo ID
-copy of recent bank/investment statements

Does that sound about right?

I'm about to fly out to NYC for apartment hunting and I want all my ducks in order... I have signed many apartment leases before, but not anywhere where the landlords required so much documentation.

I have also seen some apartment apps ask for letters of recommendation. Is that usual? Who should I get to write them? I can probably get 2 letters from my current and previous landlords... is that enough, you think?
