As everyone has stated that is simply far too low for anywhere in Manhattan. Have you considered Hoboken? They may be able to provide you with the housing you can afford.
Here in the city you need to make 40x the monthly rent or have a guarantor that makes 80x the monthly rent. You will need to be employed for at least a year with the same employer and provide pay stubs backing that up. It is a difficult process.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
