Moving to Manhattan (from Canada) in a couple of months. Hoping to get a one bed or studio in midtown. Considering that rent may potentially drop due to covid19, what range $ should I be considering?

I currently live in Midtown. While I love the unit itself, I wouldn't choose Midtown again.

Thank you everyone

Hi OP- I’m Canadian as well, and can almost guarantee you will find a good studio under $2,500. Let StreetEasy guide you, and know you can negotiate rent if you find a place you like. That’s how I found my apartment! If you’re working at Facebook, I’d recommend Gramercy or East Village. West Village is my fav neighbourhood but it’ll be a longer walk.

It’s my fav too but so expensive 😪

For midtown, the low end (studio) is probably going to be around $2000 and the upper end (one bed in a fancy building) is probably going to be near $3600. What I’ve seen so far suggests rents are falling, but it remains to be seen by how much.

For what it’s worth, I’ve got a one-bed in Hell’s Kitchen (Midtown West) that I’m looking to sublet (fully furnished or not). DM if you’d like more details.

Normal range for a studio in manhattan is around 2.2-3K. It depends on what you’re willing to be without. Walk ups are cheaper, no laundry in unit will be cheaper, older buildings & longer walks to the subway will also be cheaper. I would search the address on “who owns it nyc” and see if there are reported bed bugs/roaches or other complaints about no heat or water.

Thank you. I'd definitely like to avoid roaches and bed bugs.

Also any reason why midtown? It’s not usually people’s first choice of location unless they’re really keen on walking to work.

I would recommend not going further east than 2nd ave. It’s just not nearly as nice as 3rd ave-park.

Where in Manhattan? Don’t expect much below $2k.

How small? 500 sqft reasonable?

My 1br is 3600 for a nice building in fidi. Got a gym, roof deck, kids playroom, etc. This is probably on the lower end of the price spectrum given the location and the amenities

Is audit really taking a hit from covid? Or is it just just experiencing collateral effects from the negative impact towards advisory?

Not to mention- when I brought this to my principals attention he said I might have to take Covid leave. Covid leave only lasts so long- correct? The. What do I do?

Is it just me or does anyone else know or have an inclination that their employer committed fraud after receiving PPP loans during COVID pandemic?
