I think it's wonderful you want to move into Manhattan.. But I can tell you that even if there were such a thing as small as a 100-square-foot apt. in Manhattan below 147th street, it would be far higher than $150 thousand. However, I have an idea for you that could get you here to Manhattan. Please .contact me at mstock [at] StockPropertiesNY [dot] com.
Glad you are thinking of buying. Max is right about your price point of $150,000 though, it's not enough to get you a property in the East Village or anywhere below 125th Street. I do know of other areas where this price point applies.
Please give me a call or send me an email and we can discuss further.
