For the most part, a 3 bed for 1300$ does not exist in NYC. The average Manhattan rental price last month was $5,331, 2 beds $4,046, 1 Beds $2,842 and studios $2,039. Of course this does vary, especially neighborhood wise. Be aware the further up Manhattan you look, such as the Heights, parts of Harlem, and Inwood, you will find larger spaces for less due to the location and transportation to the rest of the island. I have rented studios in Harlem for under $1000, two beds (gorgeous ones) for $1900 in the Heights, and so forth. This is rare, though and the lack of inventory of this price range is due to the season in which rentals are in currently. More inventory comes up towards te Summer months. Good luck

I am not sure I completely understand your question, however I believe you are asking if $1,300 is a realistic price point for a 3BR rental apartment. In Manhattan, this is not a realistic price point in the current market. That being said, sometimes agents list apartments with the expected roommate share of the rent posted instead of the actual rent of the apartment. I believe this is disingenuous and misleading, but it certainly does happen. I'd recommend following the adage, "if it seems/sounds/looks to good to be true, it probably is".
