Whats a reasonable price for white-painting a 1bedroom in New York City?

I was recently quoted a real high price in Manhattan for a 710sq/ft one bedroom. What is a reasonable price range I should be looking for out here?

    Manhattan is a whole different world. I don't think you can do anything but get quotes from a couple of other painters and weigh them.

    Ryan - I would say between $700 and $1000 with paint included (variability due to amount of trim, windows, doors, height of ceilings, painting over dark colors, etc). Although I would have to agree with Douglas that Manhattan prices can be significantly

    That number would work fine for one room that Kyle provided. All is determined like he said by height, colors, and trims.

    Amber, New York is a fascinating place with many things to see and do. It can be dirty in many areas but thats part of the character - locals just brush it aside and deal with it.

    It takes a unique breed to be able to live in a city...especially NY. I took a visit there some 30 years ago...its not for me. I prefer my mountains
