How are you? I hope you're doing well. Did you find an apartment yet? That's a really tight budget if you want to live downtown near NYU. I have a super spacious 2bdrm for $1600 located in Sugar Hill. It meets your Manhattan requirement but since it's 145th & Edgecombe, you won't be able to walk to school. Good news is the express trains (A and C) are only 1 block away at 145th St & St. Nicholas. Please feel free to let me know if you'd like to see it.

"Home is where the heart is."
I got two 2BR apartments right now in Washington Heights that are within your price range. Nice neighborhood with a lot of young couples and college students. But most people don't explore these options because they hear things about a particular neighborhood or their impressions of other boroughs, like the Bronx for example, is an image of the crime in the 1980's. Many of the worst areas in NY have really changed just look at Red Hook, Brooklyn. At the same time that change does drive prices up because now these areas are desirable. NY has changed so much that regular folk who want a decent place to live are being forced out of the very places that have been their communities for years.
Look, people get caught up in the glitz of what they think their Manhattan experience is going to be until they realize that, unless their budget starts in the $2000-$3000 area, you are most likely not going to get what you want. If you expand your scope and see what is out there you might actually get more for your money in other areas. As long as your open anything is possible. Hit me up and I can show you what is out there and you can decide for yourself.
Please do not try to find out the hard way, or you may end up sending a scammer a "good faith " payment of 500 dollars. on a nonexistant apartment. This is the typical approach, so beware.
On the other hand, Hamilton Heights, Washington heights, and Inwood are all in your price range, and all are in Manhattan, but they are all above 96th street.
Good luck on your apartment hunting, and feel free to contact me with any questions or advice as there is no charge for information and advice . That is how I "run" my business.
