Our first Upper West Side rental is a cozy Lincoln Square 1-bedroom. It’s located in the Danielle, a prewar co-op less than two blocks from Central Park. Plus it’s also super-close to Trader Joe’s, Fairway, and the subways at West 72nd Street and Broadway. Inside, an open kitchen with window and breakfast bar sets the place up nicely. The bedroom sports a double closet. The pet-friendly building offers a small gym, laundry, and bike room. No board approval! Anita Filice at Brown Harris Stevens is the listing agent.
What’s more enviable than a Central Park West address? Don’t be fooled by the fact that this Upper West Side rental is, technically, a studio. Its spacious configuration is super versatile. A foyer entry with a closet eases you in. A renovated separate kitchen is adjacent to a slightly raised dining area. The windowed bathroom is big, too, and there’s even a dressing area. An alcove with a closet and built-in shelves makes a great office nook — or sleeping area. Miriam Flink-Herman at Douglas Elliman is the listing agent.
