Can me and a friend afford to live in new york?

Me and my friend plan to move to New York once I graduate so I can attend McAllister in NYC. Since we're young we assume we're both going to be working minimum wage jobs or just above that. We're gonna go to New York in a few months to get a feel of the city before we make our choice forsure. But I'm wondering if it's possible for us to afford a studio or 1 bedroom apartment in any surrounding Manhattan cities that are 30 minutes or less away.
We both currently live in Southern California btw.
