If you've got around $6,000 a month to spend on rent, you've got lots of options, from a huge one-bedroom brownstone apartment in Brooklyn Heights to a three-bedroom Tudor house in Forest Hills.  Plus, remember this time of year there are many more 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 your broker and/or the landlord if you can get a break.
