Looking for a place in Manhattan for $450,000? That budget nets you mostly studios and one-bedrooms. If you expand your search to Brooklyn and Queens, you’ll find more one-bedrooms, and even some apartments with two bedrooms. The further out you go, the bigger the space, with three-bedrooms available in Staten Island.
