Now this is truly a summer special. How often do you get a chance to live at the beach without ever leaving NYC? And we do mean directly on the beach, literally overlooking the Atlantic. With a balcony to take it all in. In a complex with every amenity your summer-obsessed brain can think of. This Coney Island 1BR is basically a Brooklyn beach house, for hundreds cheaper than average for the borough! Feast your eyes on our incredible Rental of the Week.

Address: 1 Ocean Drive #W8F

Price: $2,096

Size: 1-bedroom

Neighborhood: Coney Island

Best feature: When most people think Coney Island, they think of the boardwalk and the Cyclone. Maybe Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs, maybe even the Mermaid Parade. But how many people think to call this popular day-trip locale home? This Coney Island 1BR gives a lucky NYC renter the opportunity to literally live at the beach.

The unit itself is great, with more than 630 square feet of space, in-unit laundry, and a high-end kitchen with dishwasher. There’s a large balcony off the living room to sunbathe or take in the sea air. That alone, for just shy of $2,100 per month, would be an incredible deal. But this Rental of the Week is in a building with amenities that make it like being on vacation! We’re talking a rooftop terrace overlooking the ocean, with panoramic views and BBQs. A terrace with telescopes for stargazing. A putting green, an outdoor movie theater, a state-of-the-art gym. And don’t even get us started on the 50-foot, skylit swimming pool!

Why it’s a deal: The median asking rent in Coney Island is $2,100, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Rental of the Week right on target for the area. But considering everything you get with it? And the fact that the median for Brooklyn overall is $2,400? This Coney Island 1BR is practically a steal.

Biggest drawback: Coney Island is fun! But it is far. If you need to commute to Manhattan, you’re in for a long haul. Luckily, there’s plenty of room in this Coney Island 1BR for a home office setup. In addition, all this outdoor excitement may not seem quite so enviable come wintertime. But hey, that’s a long way away — you’ve got all summer to enjoy it.
