New York is heating up! Which means it’s almost time to dust off that air conditioner, lug it over to the window, and hope for easy installation. But there’s a better way. Central air conditioning is becoming more common in NYC. In fact, it recently cracked the top 10 of the most searched-for amenities on StreetEasy. Looking to stay cool this summer? Here are five fantastic Brooklyn and Manhattan apartments with central air, all available to rent now.
Everyone loves a balcony! But when the heat outside is stifling, an apartment with central air inside is a bonus. This lovely Greenpoint 2BR also boasts floor-to-ceiling windows in most of the rooms, letting in tons of light. There’s an elevator and a dishwasher too, plus laundry in the building. The location is also stellar, right near the waterfront and great neighborhood restaurants. Listed by Richard Moebus of Nooklyn.
What a spacious studio! This Yorkville apartment with central air also has pretty sizable kitchen, with dishwasher. And a private balcony that overlooks the Upper East Side neighborhood. Still not convinced that this is better than your average studio? Check out the huge walk-in closet/dressing area. You don’t see that every day for $2k. Listed by Pedro Crespo of Triplemint.
Next up we have a monster of a Bushwick duplex. This apartment with central air clocks in at four bedrooms! There are beautiful windows throughout, plus skylights that make the place feel even bigger. And thanks to the apartment’s unique layout, the living room boasts 20-foot ceilings. The kitchen is luxe, too. It’s loft living without the high-end price tag. Listed by Kj Gubitosi of Nooklyn.
We’re headed back to Manhattan for this next apartment with central air. It boasts two generously sized bedrooms, each with its own closet. Even better? Each also has its own full bathroom. Talk about a roommates’ paradise! It’s all set in an elevator building with laundry. In addition, it’s just a couple blocks from Marcus Garvey Park and all the conveniences on 125th Street.

Our final NYC apartment with central air is set where Crown Heights meets Prospect Park. In other words, it’s right in the middle of the action. Grand Army Plaza, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Botanic Garden are all within a couple blocks. Plus, the new-construction building has great amenities. While the unit’s look is contemporary, it still feels warm and inviting. Especially that huge eat-in kitchen. Listed by Chayim Schaider of Nooklyn.
