yorkville 1br

Our Rental of the Week is brand new and big enough to spread out, for a great price.

Affordable Manhattan apartments often leave something to be desired. (A lot of things, sometimes!) Many New Yorkers are willing to do without in exchange for that coveted, central location. But you don’t have to sacrifice your comfort, and our Rental of the Week is a perfect example. This Yorkville 1BR has brilliant natural light from six windows, a spacious bedroom with double closets, a marble-tiled bath, and a brand-new kitchen — with dishwasher. All for well under $2K per month!

Address: 1748 Second Ave. #4E

Price: $1,850

Size: 1-bedroom

Neighborhood: Yorkville

Best feature: A full gut renovation means this Yorkville 1BR is brand-new in just about every way: the floors, the bathroom, the stainless steel kitchen appliances. (Including a dishwasher! Score!) It’s got six windows — two each in the bedroom and living room, and one each in the kitchen and bath — for fantastic natural light throughout. And its location on Second Avenue and 91st Street means it’s only a quick walk to the Q and 4/5/6 subway lines at 96th or 86th. It’s also very near the great fitness facilities at Asphalt Green and all the culture of Museum Mile.

Why it’s a deal: Yorkville is part of the Upper East Side, where the median asking rent is $2,750, according to StreetEasy’s Data Dashboard. That puts our Rental of the Week almost $1K per month below average for the area, a deal in anyone’s book.

Biggest drawback: As is the case with many more affordable NYC apartments, this Yorkville 1BR is a walkup. And while the bedroom closets are pretty large, they do appear to be the only closets in the place. Luckily, there’s more than enough room for some creative storage solutions.
