There are views of Central Park, and the apartment is filled with nice details like arched doorways, beamed ceilings, and classic black-and-white checked tiles in the (small) kitchen.


↑ In Williamsburg, a three-bedroom, two-bathroom condo is being offered as a $3,750/month rental. The duplex apartment spans nearly 900 square feet with an open floorplan; you also get access to a private backyard. There are rules for the recreation room, that forbid “living, sleeping, or cooking” in that particular area.

↑ This Cobble Hill apartment, within an gut-renovated townhouse wants an even $3,700/month. The one-bedroom home comes exposed brick, a contemporary kitchen with very gray finishes, and large windows that bring in loads of sunlight.

↑ And finally, there’s this renovated two-bedroom right in the heart of the Lower East Side, going for $3,714/month. (That’s net effective rent—it comes with one month of free rent on a 14-month lease.) The sleek space has dark hardwood floors, a brand new kitchen and bathroom, and a washer/dryer in-unit.
