I have a nice 1bdrm apt available in Inwood for $1000/mo. That's really the rock bottom price point in Manhattan unless you scale down to a studio instead. There are apts in the Bronx for $950 but I don't work up there. I realize that's it's $50 above your budget but if you'd like to schedule an appointment to see the 1bdrm in Inwood, please feel free to let me know. Take care & all the best to you in your apartment search.
