chelsea studio - rental of the week

Our Rental of the Week offers the perfect sunny corner to read, sip coffee, or gaze out at the rooftops of Chelsea.

A neighborhood like Chelsea is always in demand, which means it’s not the easiest place to find a cheap apartment. But it’s not impossible! Our Rental of the Week is a sunny Chelsea studio on a prime corner that offers wide-open rooftop views over the neighborhood. And the price is hard to beat! Check out the video walkthrough on the listing, and read on for more.

Address: 364 W. 19th St. #2B

Price: $2,100

Size: studio

Neighborhood: Chelsea

Best feature: Many studio apartments can feel like cramped, closed-in boxes. But the four big windows in this corner unit offer sunshine and views out over the trees and rooftops, lending the small space a more wide-open feel. The kitchen is also well done, with more cabinet space than you might expect and stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher.

This Chelsea studio also boasts a super-prime location at the corner of 19th Street and Ninth Avenue. Multiple subway lines are close by, the High Line is just a block to the west, Chelsea Market is two blocks south, and the nightlife and restaurants of the neighborhood are all around you. Enjoy!

Why it’s a deal: The median rent for a studio apartment in Chelsea is a pricey $3,100. That puts our Rental of the Week at a full thousand dollars per month below average for the neighborhood! You can’t ask for a better deal than that.

Biggest drawback: There’s no sugar-coating it: One of the windows in this unit has locking bars over it. Not great for aesthetics. But even if you keep curtains drawn over that window, you still have three more to take advantage of all that natural light. The home is not large either, but no studio is. And a comfy loveseat in that sunny corner-window nook can make up for a lot of lost square footage — especially at this price.
