Studio Apartments Are The Cheapest They've Been In Years

When I-Bankers were eating caviar for breakfast and Silicon valley yuppies were buying up all the private jets, getting into the New York real estate was a pipe dream for the non nouveau-riche—$1 million for a studio was commonplace.

Though the average price of a studio plummeted to $404,326 in 2010, from a high of $500,479 in 2008, the NYT searched through listings and found over 200 studios on tap for $300,000 or less.
