This tasteful, understated pre-war one-bedroom is about as serene as Midtown gets. The furnished apartment, asking $3,250/month, comes equipped with a working fireplace, a small but modern kitchen, and a well-lit master with stately striped walls, plus a plethora of “exquisite Art Deco antiques” (priorities!).
Though the recently renovated building is located less than a block from the base of Central Park, the listing promises the apartment is ultra-quiet, with the usual roster of perks: bike storage, shared laundry, and a part-time doorman during the week. If there is a downside, it is that you can’t stay long: the place is available for 1-2 years only.
But considering the average price for a Manhattan one-bedroom hovers at around $4,000 (that’s according to MNS’s latest market reports), this is a pretty decent deal—assuming you’re okay with Art Deco furniture, anyway.
