Hello Talia. My suggesstion is that you work with a broker that has experience in mixed use buildings and commercial property. Based on your e-mail, you seem to be doing this by yourself. That will yield few options at best. Good luck.

You can considerate Mixed building in Long island city or Astoria Area in queens, which are only couple subway station away from Manhanttan. And with related low price.

How many Apartments you need in the building? and what's your price rang? You also have to think about the ROI(return of Investment) when you considerate a property if you are mainjor use it as your investment purpose.

I have couple mixed building in those area, if you are interested, please email or call me as below:

It seems what you are looking for is a mixed use property. There are many available in close proximity to Manhattan. What you can get would depend on factors such as budget, specific neighborhood and property needs i.e. two, three or four units. You say easily reachable from Manhattan, you can find something in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. Hope this helps.
