That is good that your "must haves" are short and for $2500 a month it is attainable but it will largely depend on your credit score and your down payment.
If you have 10% down your appropriate price range, assuming you would qualify, would probably be up to $350,000 because you will need to factor in PMI.
If you have 20% down available then your price range would be higher into $400,000. Keep in mind that property taxes and maintenance fees can bring up your monthly payment. If you are open to 'brownstone' type buildings and buildings that do not offer amenities such as doormen, gym's etc, this will the best way to keep your payments low.
I hope this helps and if you need some assistance or have more questions please don't hesitate to reach me.
