Looking for a Manhattan apartment with all the bells and whistles for a fantastic price? (Aren’t we all?) Well, you’re in luck. Now is a great time to be on the hunt, and our Rental of the Week is proof. This Harlem 1BR is spacious at nearly 700 square feet, with a fully loaded kitchen and in-unit laundry. Plus a sizable balcony!

Address: 330 E. 109th St. #3C

Price: $1,800

Size: 1-bedroom

Neighborhood: East Harlem

Best feature: This Harlem 1BR isn’t just a studio with a pressurized wall built. It’s a true 1-bedroom, and a rather large one at that! The bedroom has huge windows, excellent closet space, and plenty of room for bed, nightstands, dressers, and more.

In the main living area you’ll find a modern open kitchen with a dishwasher and breakfast bar. Tall windows let in plenty of natural light. They lead out to a fantastic balcony with room for furniture and plants. In addition, there are two more big closets here. One’s a walk-in for coats and storage, and the other contains your very own stacked washer and dryer. Private outdoor space and in-unit laundry: That’s two of NYC’s most-wanted amenities, all for you! As an added bonus, our Rental of the Week boasts an exceedingly rare feature in Manhattan: double sinks in the bathroom. 

Finally, this unit is set in the Aura Condominiums, which provides residents with a roof deck, a common garden, and a high-end gym. 

Why it’s a deal: The median asking rent in East Harlem is $2,150, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Rental of the Week at $350 per month below average for the area. (The last time this unit rented, back in 2018, it cost $2,500. So the current rate reflects a huge discount from pre-pandemic times.)

Biggest drawback: No utilities are included in the rent on this Harlem 1BR, so you’ll have to shell out for everything yourself. And it’s fairly far east, almost to First Avenue, which means the subway is not as close as it could be. But this Rental of the Week gives you so much for so little — those minor inconveniences are easy to overlook.
