Located on quiet and charming Cornelia Street, this cozy studio in the West Village is renting for 30% below the neighborhood median, or about $1,000 less. The apartment features exposed brick, hardwood floors and access to an entertaining-worthy shared garden.
Address: 22 Cornelia Street #7
Neighborhood: West Village
Best feature: The price is rare for the sought-after, luxurious West Village. The shared garden provides an ideal opportunity to enjoy the leafy and idyllic neighborhood. Within the unit, natural light brightens each room from the decently-sized windows. For a small studio, the layout lends to a relatively comfortable living situation with wiggle room surrounding the couch and bed. In addition, the building is cat-friendly and allows renting options like guarantors and pied-à-terre use. It also includes a bike room and live-in super.
Why it’s a deal: The median asking rent for a studio in the West Village is $3,100. At $2,000, this apartment is a comparative steal.

Biggest drawback: The kitchen is lackluster with a two-burner stove and no full fridge in view. Also, it’s unclear whether it includes an oven. The bathroom is similarly cramped and is relatively no-frill. Nevertheless, this intimate studio offers West Village charm at an impressively low price.
