Neighborhood: East Harlem
Best feature: Beyond that amazing under-$2K price, this East Harlem 1BR is genuinely beautiful. The hardwoods gleam, the bathroom feels luxe. And that kitchen! It may not be huge, but wow is it well-appointed. The look is sleek and modern, with full-size stainless appliances that include a dishwasher and built-in microwave. The living room and bedroom are both spacious enough to spread out. And let’s not forget what might be the best feature of all: in-unit laundry.
In addition, our Rental of the Week is conveniently located. You’ve got the shopping, culture, and restaurants of 125th Street just to the north. Big-box options like Costco and Target are a few blocks east at East River Plaza. And the 4, 5, and 6 trains are super-close, too.
Why it’s a deal: The median asking rent in East Harlem is currently $2,295, according to StreetEasy’s Data Dashboard. That puts our Rental of the Week at more than $300 per month below average for the area — and you never have to go to a laundromat. Plus, the landlord is offering two months free on a 12-month lease! That brings the net-effective rent way down to $1,654.

Biggest drawback: Nothing’s perfect, and that applies to this East Harlem 1BR as well. It’s a walkup, for starters. Also, the closet that holds the stacked washer/dryer seems to be the only one in the apartment. So you’ll need some creative storage solutions. And finally, it is on a busy block. There’s traffic to contend with, and a poultry market that might be off-putting for some. But overall, this Rental of the Week is an incredible opportunity.
