Best feature: This apartment is located on a lush tree-lined block in idyllic West Village, in an elevator-equipped prewar building no less!

Biggest drawback: It’s a true studio, with the bed and couch filling the entire space. So, it is snug to maneuver easily around the furniture in a tight space. Still, it’s hard to snag a West Village prewar building with rent so low. And, the large windowpane windows welcome plenty of light to this apartment that bursts with charm.
