While $3,000 a month isn’t a huge budget when it comes to NYC rentals, it’s enough to afford you studios and even one- and two-bedroom apartments in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Queens and the Bronx offer even more space, and many of the apartments for rent across the boroughs don’t even carry a broker’s fee (you can thank this slow time of year for that).
