120k for a 2.5k apt. Most 1b1bs in Manhattan are closer to ~3.5k though

$200k would be good. I’d stick to a max of 25% of net pay on rent. That is pretty comfortable.

200k = 120k net (* 0.60 after taxes, the usual section 125 benefits, 401k, single/0 ). 120k * 0.25 = 30k. 30k / 12 months = 2500. You’re not losing 50% of your gross pay after taxes and benefits in NYC, even with the higher tax bracket over $163k. 40% withheld is even a bit high for the average person.
