We kick off our tour of downtown rental deals with a Lower East Side winner. This bright and spacious unit has shiny hardwood floors and windows galore. The bedroom alone boasts three exposures, with plenty of room for a queen-size bed and then some. Plus, the building has an elevator and is in a prime LES location, near Essex Market and Sara D. Roosevelt Park. Listed by Anisa Gjoni at Universal Realty.
The East Village is one of the hottest residential markets in Manhattan. But there are still great downtown rental deals to be had here. For example, this well designed 1-bedroom near Tomkins Square Park. There’s a breakfast bar, a dining nook, and plenty of kitchen cabinets. But we had you at “exposed brick” and “decorative fireplace,” right? Mo Ahmed at City Wide Apartments is the listing agent.
Little Italy is, well, little! Apartments here are few and far between. So for fans of this bustling and historic area, this downtown rental deal is appealing. The bedroom is big enough for a king bed, with a spacious living room as well. It’s also got top-notch kitchen appliances, including a Sub-zero refrigerator. But why eat at home with so many amazing restaurants all around you? Kenny Fung at Compass is the listing agent.
Lots of windows and high ceilings give this downtown rental deal a boost. For well under $2,800, it’s a wonderful perch in the heart of Chelsea. Good light and design touches make the somewhat narrow living space work. In addition, the bathroom is freshly renovated, and the bedroom fits a queen bed and more. Dana Temir at Triplemint is the listing agent.
We end our tour of downtown rental deals at the center of the universe. Otherwise known as the intersection of Bleecker & MacDougal. This corner 1-bedroom is four flights up and in the back of the building. (So you may not hear all of humanity walking around this famous NYC area.) More than 200 StreetEasy shoppers are eyeing this chance to live in an iconic Village location! Udi Eliasi at Compass is the listing agent.
