In addition to the answer below, you will also have mortgage tax; both NY City and State.
Title insurance in addition to title search and recording fees.
Closing costs on an FHA loan are a bigger percent of purchase price than a conventional loan.
I know; strange considering that they are suppossed to help people with lower down payments!
If there is any way to raise a bit more cash towards a downpayment, you will actualy save a lot of money.

With any home loan in general, you'll have two main types of closing costs. One is lender related and the other is title related closing costs. These cover bank fees, appraisal, title insurance, recording charges, etc.

With an FHA mortgage, you also have what's called an Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium, which equals 1.75% of the loan amount. This is typically included in the total financed amount.

I strongly suggest you meet face-to-face with a Loan Officer and get pre-approved. Your Loan Officer can also provide a Good Faith Estimate which will breakdown all the estimated closing costs involved in your purchase. I'm always available to meet in our Brooklyn offices. Good luck!
