↑ Nothing says pre-war like coffered beamed ceilings, elaborate moldings, and huge fireplace mantels. In this Upper West Side two-bedroom, that’s exactly what you’ll get. Renting for $7,000/month, the apartment also offers a renovated kitchen and lots of closet space.

↑ In the East Village, a sunny 1,900-square-foot duplex apartment, asking $7,000/month, offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a huge private garden that measures roughly 1,700 square feet. Other amenities include a washer/dryer unit, den, and recessed lighting throughout.
