Got around $3,200 to set aside each month for rent? You can find everything from a studio in the Financial District to a four-bedroom in the Bronx. Plus, remember this time of year there are lots of incentives around (like reduced broker's fees and a month or two of free rent). Even if the listing doesn't explicitly mention it, it's worth asking if you can get a discount.
