I've lived in Manhattan for $500. There were roommates and stuff but you know, who cares.

(I've also lived there for $2000. Guess which one is better?)

roomates? naah.

I don't think $2000 gets you more than a studio on manhattan now.

Well, I'm currently negotiating for a place in Harlem with a lawyer. Better not be over a grand (one of the bedrooms has a jacuzzi she says).

My friend lives in a 1BR doorman building up on 6th and... hmm... I forgot. Up there in the 50s, I think. $2300.

My other friend lives in a '1 Bedroom' in LES which is super tiny, $1400.

$3000 would get you a NICE 1BR in manhattan, I think. Or even a decent, but crappy 2BR.

2004? Maybe? Dunno about rent stabilization. Note that the 1 Bedroom in LES would be considered a closet anywhere else. I think I am wrong about 6th avenue. Maybe I'm thinking 4th. LEt me look at a map. Yeah, 4th, not 6th.

50th -70th between 4th and York. There always seemed to be apartment deals there. Cuz its not up in the rich area of the upper east side, but it isn't really close to any cool, hip neighborhoods, either. It is kind of the boring zone.

almost. 113rd and freddie. it ain't rent-stabilized because it's someone's condo (the sri lankan lawyer chick).

6th and 50's ... wtf is that? David Letterman's studio? The Russian Tea Room? eh, it's ok if you work in mid-town, because then you can just walk. but if you're subwaying anyway the price ain't worth it.

(yeah, yeah, dasvidanya. I know.)

There is no 4th and York.  York is between First Ave and the East River, and York itself doesn't run below 59th St.

FWIW I believe my friend with the $2300 1BR is right around 60th between 2nd and 3rd. I remember that one tram thing that goes to roosevelt island was a short walk.

Heh.  Back in 1981 I briefly lived in a 6th floor walkup on 73rd St between York and the FDR Drive.  Absolutely ancient, crumbling firetrap building that was in such bad shape that we joked that it was built out of roaches holding hands.  Two small bedrooms - the rent was $450/month.

I've driven by there recently, and the building is still there.  Wonder how much the rents are now, and if they ever renovated.

the high-priced strip club is around there. 60th and 2nd. the  market underneath the queensboro bridge is neat too.
