If you opt to rent short term to students, I suggest you stay around Columbia University or NYU.
The area is the ideal location for what you seem to be looking for. The properties there are still at a good price per square foot. I have been previewing some prime examples of what timing will get you in the area recently. Try to make sure that there is good natural light, subway access and also what amenities are offered in the building.
I hope that this helps!
plus it is an absolutely beautiful pied-a-terre with great light, a fireplace, a chef's kitchen . ..
