Private outdoor space is a rare commodity in New York City, especially Manhattan. So when an apartment comes up like 330 E. 109th St. #7B with not one but two private outdoor spaces, it’s worth taking note. Our Deal of the Week is a 1-bedroom condo in East Harlem in an elevator building near lots of park space. But there’s even more to love about this unit (including a dishwasher and washer/dryer hookups)!

Why You’ll Love It…
This 667-square-foot 1-bedroom condo has been recently renovated and features freshly sanded floors, updated kitchen appliances, and modern bathroom finishes. You enter the unit into the main living area, which features the open kitchen, a large closet, and an entrance to the first terrace. The kitchen has been outfitted with a breakfast bar, lots of storage space, a full-size double-door fridge, a mounted microwave, and the cherry on top: a dishwasher! In short, it has everything you need to cook and entertain at home.
On the other side of the entryway are the washer and dryer hookups — which are tucked away in a closet — and the bathroom. You can relax in the deep soaking tub, which is also equipped with a rainfall showerhead. Medicine cabinets run along the wall to provide even more storage (as if the unit didn’t have enough already)!
On the far end of the unit is the king-size bedroom. It offers expansive closet space and yet another terrace, so you can choose where you want to relax during the day. Considering one end of the apartment faces north and another faces southwest, you should always be able to catch some decent sunlight.
The unit is located in the Aurora Condominiums, a 28-unit elevator condo building complete with a fitness center, common rooftop deck, bike storage, mail room, common garden, and video intercom system. It also has a great location between 1st and 2nd Avenues near the 6 train at 110th Street. Thomas Jefferson Park, which houses a dog park and recreation center, is just a couple of blocks away, and Central Park isn’t too far either.
…And Why You Might Not
While the unit is spacious overall, it probably doesn’t have enough space for a formal dining set. The living room and the breakfast bar in the kitchen provide a decent amount of sitting room, however. Additionally, the unit doesn’t include an actual washer and dryer, but the closet across from the bathroom is ready to go with the hookups for them!
For all this unit and building offers, it’s safe to say it’s a steal!
