According to New York City records, the median price for an apartment in Manhattan for the month of June 2023 was $1,200,000.  The price represents a slight decrease of 2.4% from the median price of $1,228,782 recorded in June 2022.  The number of apartment sales, however, fell from 1,686 to 1,088 reflecting a year-over-year decrease of 35%.  

June represents the eighth consecutive month that the volume of year-over-year sales have dipped in the borough.  

What exactly does $1,200,000 get you in Manhattan?  Let’s take a closer look.
