This Harlem 3BR would make a great share or family apartment.

A 3-bedroom under $3,000 is practically unheard-of in New York City, let alone in Manhattan. Here, however, we have a simple, completely functional Harlem 3BR for a very reasonable price.

Address: 69 W. 118th St. #2E

Price: $2,495

Size: 3-bedroom

Neighborhood: South Harlem

Best feature: The floor plan shows a very functional layout, especially for roommates. There are 3 evenly sized bedrooms at one end of the apartment, each with a window and closet, and a spacious living area at the other. Located 20 minutes from Columbia’s Morningside Heights campus by foot, the place should appeal to students looking to share.

Why it’s a deal: The boroughwide median rent for a 3-bedroom was last recorded at $4,619. In Harlem, the figure was $3,095 — more than $500 above the asking rent for this place.

Biggest drawback: The apartment is basic, lacking amenities such as a dishwasher, which might be a sticking point for roommates. The bedrooms are not large, either. But with plenty of total space, and newer finishes in the kitchen and bathroom, this Harlem find could make a great share or family apartment.
