Studio apartments in Manhattan range widely in terms of size and monthly rents. The median size is 550 square feet and the median price is $2300 per month. Studio apartments in the Financial District tend to be bigger, with a median size of 675 square feet and a rental price of $2800 per month. Studios in the West Village usually have a bit more character and can be found in brownstones or walk-up buildings; like the Financial District, these apartments are priced higher than the Manhattan median at $2800 per month. Less expensive Manhattan studios can be found in Murray Hill, where prices are about $2000 a month for 575 square feet.

Studio Apartments in Manhattan tend to fall into three buckets: regular studios, alcove studios and convertible studios. Regular studios typically are made up of a kitchen, bathroom and a single large living/sleeping room. Many people create a separation between the living and sleeping parts of the room by creating a barrier (book case, bureau, etc.). Alternatively, Alcove studios are L-shaped and the "L" acts as a separate sleeping cove. These apartments usually don't require a barrier between the living a sleeping areas. Finally, convertible studios use temporary walls to make a studio into an effective one bedroom apartment. Unfortunately, many landlords look down upon temporary walls. For more on temporary walls, read our blog post on NYC temporary walls and room dividers in NYC apartments.

Manhattan Studio apartments range in price dramatically because of the wide array of features and buildings that they can be found in. For example, the Archive Building in the West Village offers studios starting at $3700 per month. These apartments are amenity rich, with laundry on every floor, a shared roof deck, in-building gym and a 24-hour doorman. Similarly, studio apartments found in the garden level of West Village or Upper West Side brownstones command a premium because of their access to back gardens and their premium location.
