Address: 327 W. 18th St. #3W

Price: $2,475

Size: Studio

Neighborhood: Chelsea

Best feature: Chelsea has many lovely blocks, but this one is prime. Located on 18th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues, this apartment is in the thick of the neighborhood’s cultural scene and close to the 1 train at Seventh Avenue.  Location aside, what really stands out about this place is its charm: It’s in a classic brick rowhouse built in 1910, and the interior offers exposed brick and windows in both the kitchen and the bathroom.

Why it’s a deal: The median rent for a studio in Chelsea is $3,000. At $2,475, this apartment is a good $500 less than that.

Biggest drawback: The kitchen is small and does not offer a dishwasher or much counter space. The building is also across from the Lab High School, which could bring a lot of boisterous teenagers to the block in the early mornings and afternoons.
