Better luck asking this on streeteasy.com. I think your price is a bit aggressive even in this economy.

(no offense if you're not familiar with craigslist. Check out that link and of course you can adjust the max rent.)

Those Craigslist listings appear to be for studios and convertible 1 bedrooms.

Are you willing to use a broker? Citi Habitats is pretty good.

LOL. Um, no, not even close. In the financial district? The averag is probably closer to $6000.

Does Battery Park City count as the financial district? One of my friends recently got a place there for $2500 because they were fairly desperate for renters. It was either one or two bedroom.

You're probably better off going slightly uptown from the financial district - check out chinatown and little italy.

Thanks for all your answers

I have been doing research and yes, seriously. Here' s one example:

To answer all the other questions:
I am not using Craiglist because I am not a fan- to say the least.
I am using a broker.
Battery Park City counts.
We are looking at that area because hubby works there.
Thanks for the streeteasy.com tip.


For the ones who can and want to, the Financial District is a good deal right now.

Once again, thanks for all your answers and I'll see you around.
