If your budget falls smack dab between $1 and $ 2 million, you can get a pretty nice place (only in New York, folks). If you're willing to venture outside Manhattan, you may even be able to get a brownstone or stand-alone house. (No neighbors--woohoo!) Here's what's available right now, from an Upper West Side one-bedroom to a four-bedroom house in the Fieldston section of Riverdale.
