It’s a virtual field day out there right now for New York renters. Inventory is plentiful for NYC apartments for $1800 or so. So plentiful, in fact, that it’s tough to pick only a handful of the best and brightest! Here are five great options: Have fun trying to decide.
Do our eyes deceive us? Our first NYC apartment for $1800 is a 2-bedroom in desirable Cobble Hill. And it’s an ocean of space at 900 square feet! The railroad-style flat is bright, with tin ceilings and hardwood floors. Sure, it’s a little close to the BQE, but that also puts it close to the Columbia Street Waterfront District. And for this price, you can use the second bedroom as a home office. Maggie Ross and Paul Milner at Compass are the listing agents.
From one beloved Brooklyn neighborhood to another! Nearly 250 StreetEasy shoppers call this Park Slope 1-bedroom a favorite. The location just two blocks from Prospect Park is awesome. And so is the super-homey interior. It features a decorative fireplace and a big, open kitchen with breakfast bar and dishwasher. There are plenty of windows, too. This apartment is for rent by its owner, who can be contacted on the listing.
