As was already said, one month rent, one month security...and IF you are using an agent then your agent fee which could be one month's rent as well. (I understand these days those fees can be as high as 15% of the yearly rent but that kind of thing is happening more in Manhattan, If you are renting in the Bronx the agent fee is usually amounts to the equivalent of one month's rent as well.

MAKE SURE YOU GET A RECEIPT! Never give cash or any type of downpayment or fees without a receipt! Don't trust any landlord or anyone else for that matter where you give any money without a receipt! Just a word of warning as many clients I have worked with have told me every story you can imagine.

Best of luck!
