hell's kitchen 1br

Our Rental of the Week is a heavenly home in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen.

Comfortably-sized apartments at this price point in Manhattan don’t come along very often, and particularly not in a highly desirable neighborhood. So this Hell’s Kitchen 1BR, our Rental of the Week, is a rare find indeed. It offers big, bright windows and a beautiful renovation, which leaves lovely prewar details intact while providing modern style where it counts. Don’t miss the 3D tour on the listing!

Address: 411 W. 48th St. #4F

Price: $1,970

Size: 1-bedroom

Neighborhood: Hell’s Kitchen

Best feature: This Hell’s Kitchen 1BR is bright and welcoming, with big windows in every room. A clean, sleek remodel makes the most of the sunlight with blond wood floors and white finishes. The kitchen is modern, with plenty of storage and counter space and chic brushed-metal cabinet pulls.

A prewar feel has been preserved in the spacious bedroom, with two tall, set-back windows and a charming decorative fireplace. Glass-paned French doors keep that natural light flowing throughout the space. The home is set in a 1901 brownstone building on a tree-lined residential street, convenient to all of midtown and within easy walking distance of a slew of subway lines.

Why it’s a deal: Hell’s Kitchen is a submarket of Midtown West, where the median asking rent for a 1BR home is $3109, according to StreetEasy’s Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at more than $1,000 per month below average for the neighborhood!

Biggest drawback: This Hell’s Kitchen 1BR’s $1970 rent is net-effective based on one month free. The gross rent is $2150, which is still well below average for the area — but above that magic $2K mark. The living area is small but certainly workable, and keeping those French doors open makes it feel a lot more spacious. In addition, this building has no elevator, which means three flights of stairs to get up to the fourth floor. But what a deal for this great, central location.
