Prices are starting to rebound in the city, after plummeting during the height of the pandemic. But renters can still find an array of appealing units in good neighborhoods for great prices. Want to go solo? There are plenty of studios and 1-bedrooms that fit the bill for just $2K per month. But heck, we even found a shareable 2-bedroom for roomies who want to spend their money on fun, not rent. NYC apartments for $2000: Even renters on a budget gotta love New York!
