Currently in Merrick there are only four rentals listed on the MLS. Of the four all are whole house rentals so they wouldn't be pertininent to your question. The rental market in Merrick is always strong, but tightened up even more after hurricane Sandy. My estimate would be $1,900. My partner lives and works in and works in Merrick. He's done rentals there, if you'd like his contact information drop me an e-mail.
