For under $2,000 each, roomies are more likely to find quality listings in hotspots like the West Village and the Lower East Side in Manhattan, to Crown Heights and Boerum Hill in Brooklyn, and Long Island City in Queens.

Well-maintained with a live-in super and an owner-managed building will make this one feel like home personified. Run, don’t walk, because 200+ StreetEasy shoppers are ahead of you on ID’ing this one as terrific.
