Look into areas like Astoria(which is in Queens) that are cheaper, be used to taking the subway daily and don't expect to have a car. Shit is expensive here. Avoid renting in shitty areas at all costs.
Are you going to work here as well?
I live in VA and there are no 1 bedroom apartments for 1000 here. I'd imagine it's way more in NYC
