The convenience of a second bedroom can’t be overstated. With so many New Yorkers working from home, a little separation makes a world of difference. And if you can get that separation without sacrificing neighborhood — or budget? Well then, you’ve hit the NYC jackpot. That’s what makes our Rental of the Week special. This Hell’s Kitchen 2BR puts you in the heart of a fantastic, buzzing neighborhood. Plus it provides a spare room to set up as an office, or a home gym, or even share with a roommate. All for a great price!

Address: 442 W. 45th St. #5E

Price: $2,475

Size: 2-bedroom

Neighborhood: Hell’s Kitchen

Best feature: With bright windows at either end of the apartment and a skylight overhead, this Hell’s Kitchen 2BR is full of natural light. That, combined with unusually high ceilings, helps the somewhat narrow space feel bigger. In addition, the newly renovated unit delivers shiny hardwoods and a long wall of exposed brick.

The kitchen, recessed into a nook in the open living area, is petite but very well done. It sports stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher and a built-in microwave, and even granite counters. And the windowed bathroom is modern, stylish, and nicely tiled. The side-by-side bedrooms are small, but both have a bright window and a good-sized closet. The exposed brick wall continues into one of them, with a decorative fireplace adding character.

Finally, our Rental of the Week is in a prime Manhattan location. It’s close to multiple subway lines and just a couple blocks from Riverside Park. Plus it’s situated between bustling Ninth and Tenth avenues, which makes it central to a world of restaurant options. And if you’re a theater fan, you’re in the right place — especially as Broadway begins to reopen post-pandemic.

Why it’s a deal: Hell’s Kitchen is a submarket of the overall Midtown West area. The median asking rent for this popular neighborhood is $3,150, according to StreetEasy’s Data Dashboard. And for a 2-bedroom, that figure goes up to $3,650! That puts our Rental of the Week more than $650 below average for the area, and more than $1,000 below average for a 2BR. Score!

Biggest drawback: This Hell’s Kitchen 2BR is long and narrow — the bedrooms in particular are tight. So configuring furniture might be a bit of a challenge. It’s also a fifth-floor walkup. But that’s the price you pay for a great deal in a great neighborhood, especially in Manhattan, and our Deal of the Week is certainly that.
