NYC neighborhoods don’t get much more desirable than SoHo, and this 1BR is full of charming original details, with an updated kitchen and bath. The location, on Sullivan Street between Houston and Prince Streets, can’t be beat for easy access to all the shopping, arts, and restaurants this vibrant and storied district has to offer.
Address: 148 Sullivan St. #1R
Size: 1 bedroom
Best feature: Exposed brick, a decorative fireplace, hardwood floors, original tin ceilings — do we have to choose just one?
Why it’s a deal: In addition to being more than $1,000 below the neighborhood’s median 1-bedroom-rental price of $3,514, this unit is rent stabilized, which means there are firm limits to how much the rent can be raised each time a lease is renewed.

Biggest drawback: This apartment is on the building’s ground floor and faces away from the street. While this rear-facing configuration helps keep things quiet in bustling SoHo, it may also mean a lack of sunlight compared to higher-floor units.
