I just came across a listing for $1150 on East 41st like RIGHT by the river.
That is a rare listing at a way below market rate.

Most options will be uptown above 168th Street and studios, but there are some deals to be had out there. It will take time, patience and watching the market like a hawk!

You may need to take something earlier than ideal if it pops up.

To your success!

Happy home hunting!

Hi John, guess you've gotten the message from the other responders that $1000-$1250 doesnt really get you into most Manhattan apartments (even way uptown its a squeeze). I have, however, been able to find clients very nice decent sized sutdios in walk-up buildings (even on the first or second floor so it doesnt feel like a lot of climbing) in the $1700 range. I dont know if you have that much price flexibility but thought that might be of interest. Please let me know if I can be of help.

In Manhattan a small 1BR in a walk up will be around 2K and studios start at 15-1600. May be Washington Heights or Inwood. Good luck finding a place!

Check with local realty offices, or work with an agent; check local print media for by owner rentals, always verify ownership before exchanging any money; word of mouth, etc.

You should start your search 4-6 weeks prior to your preferred move-in date. If you are more flexible with a large studio versus a 1 bedroom you can probably find something and most likely it will in the uptown neighborhoods. Don't get discouraged and stay positive.

Good luck with that price range.

Because for that price you can only find in Upper Manhattan (harlem, Washington Height, etc.)
