Right now I'm paying 1650 a month and would like to find a place in new york around the same price if possible. Areas I really like are union sq and williamsburg but would really like to be in the city if possible . I'm looking for a 1 bedroom but wouldnt mind a studio I'm just lookin to get back to the east. I have one pitbull so it would have to be a pitbull friendly area, and also if possible a washer/dryer in the apt.. close to a market and near ppl around my age range (im 21). For square footage, I don't really have any requirements.. just lookin to get out of california. Do I have any options around these two areas?

That dollar amount won't get you anything in the Union Square area. I can't speak to Williamsburg, but you might want to cast a broader net.

most $3k a month apartments don't have a washer/dryer. its just not that common in nyc. Its pretty hard to find apartments less than 2k in Manhattan. try the east village though. Its close to both Williamsburg and union square. Williamsburg is a bit cheaper.

I'd say you might find a decent apartment in Union Square for around 2k. That would be a closet with a bathroom though. You should be able to find a nice studio in Williamsburg for that price. I'd say you're looking at 450 sqaure feet. Remember, what they list on rental sites isn't the correct sqaure footage. Always measure the apartment before you sign the lease.

there's tons of apts listed in Williamsburg on CL right now for under $1650. you don't have to specify studio, just look for any available apt. in your price range. (but make sure they accept dogs)

Have you looked on the New York Times website? You can find a good number of real estate listings in the city there.

My dad rents small 1 bedrooms on the upper west side for $1800 to $2000 (no laundry in the building though.. ) So possibly a studio could be found for $1700?
