Upper West Side Rentals Under $3000 on StreetEasy Article continues below

Address: 711 West End Avenue #4GN

Price: $2,035

Size: Studio

Neighborhood: Upper West Side

Best feature: There is so much to love here, but this unit’s location makes it a standout. The Upper West Side studio is nestled between two of the city’s great green spaces, Central Park and Riverside Park — not to mention being a hop, skip, and a jump away from Whole Foods. Also, the Upper West Side is brimming with restaurants making it a foodie paradise.

Are you concerned about living in a tiny crash pad? This studio doesn’t skimp on square footage. The apartment boasts a spacious living area with lots of windows, creating a welcoming and airy vibe. And for those who get lots of deliveries, there’s a 24-hour doorman to keep track of your packages. Plus, you and your pet (if you have one) will appreciate the elevator that will whisk you both to the fourth floor.

Why it’s a deal: The median asking rent for the Upper West Side is $3,606, according to StreetEasy’s Data Dashboard. That puts our Rental of the Week at more than $1,500 per month below the neighborhood’s median!

Biggest drawback: We would be remiss if we didn’t share that the photos are from a similar unit in the building. Also, the kitchen and the bathroom are a tad dated — hello, early aughts. However, being conveniently near parks and great restaurants may make up for all of the above.
